But that's my point. I like the "off-stream" characters. And my main interest (with this show) is the agents themselves. For me it's about expanding the universe beyond the marquee characters. Sure the occasional appearance or reference is great but I see the purpose of the show is to build a better overall story. Again just my opinion.
