Yeah, the team action doesn't start until episode 6. It's possible to skip the first 5 episodes, except they set-up important plot elements that pay off later in the series, especially the episodes involving Thor and Captain America.Personally, I thought the way they handled Captain America's origin was brilliant: it's told with old news reels and time-travel as Kang the Conquerer investigates a time paradox that is tearing his world apart.
This is such a BS response but you have to give the show at least six episodes before it gets going.
That kind of comment leaves me scratching my head. Action is the lifeblood of the animation medium. What are you expecting from a cartoon about costumed super-heroes? Wuthering Heights?
Well, there is this...http://www.amazon.com/All-Star-Superman-Blu-Ray-James-Denton/dp/B004EE30C8/ref=sr_1_8?ie=UTF8&qid=1336660634&sr=8-8
IAmZim, have you listened to my podcast where Sean and I go into detail on what we like about the series? How they handle the villains is a pretty big part of what we enjoyed about Season 1. Here's the link if you haven't heard it already. If this doesn't sound like your thing, I respect that, but I honestly feel that EMH is one of the first Marvel cartoons to capture the same level of quality as many of the DCAU cartoons.
Given how little screen time Thor has gotten so far this season, I'm fine with it. Also loved both Beta Ray Bill and Space Battleship Yamato, err... I mean Scuttlebutt.
I'd much rather Ultimate Spider-Man be aborted and made more in line with Avengers. EMH has established the FF, SHIELD, SWORD, The Avengers, the Guardians of the Galaxy, the Kree and the Skrulls. If they throw some X-Men in and bring Spider-Man over then we've got a unified Marvel animated canon. They'd be mad to ditch it, unless it's just us older folks watching it.

Maybe they should take this as a hint:http://www.comicbookmovie.com/fansites/marveltv/news/?a=59894Edit: http://www.comicbookmovie.com/fansites/marveltv/news/?a=61109Fuck.
Asked if Avengers Assemble might skew older, Loeb replies, "No, but it will certainly have that kind of gigantic action and interacting among the characters and their voices that the movie has."
