Agents of SHIELD season three

I am trying to watch Agents of SHIELD
and I am kind of aggressively bored.
I started fast forwarding through specific subplots and now I'm just going through whole episodes.
I know I've seen these eps before but I don't remember where I left off and also things ought to have some rewatch value.
But this set of characters aren't giving me feels any more.
Don't know why.
Possibly it's the thing where they aren't allowed to make their world better and things always turn out worse.
Maybe it's that team how about we treat people like people is not synonymous with team good guy in this world
and the whole human rights rule of law thing is... really not happening.
Dystopia with supervillains isn't grabbing me.

I know I quit because of the racism with all the dead black guys, but I used to care about the characters, and that seems to have worn off.

Even though Melinda May is dreamy and wonderful and kicks all the arse.
Not sufficient.

It's sad and annoying.

Maybe if I watch more it'll get me again?

... probably not.

Well, it's hard to get enthused about a dystopia with supervillains when you're living in one.

Maybe it might help if you consider it watching raw unedited material for future fanfics?
