Well, this was a surprise. I woke up this morning to find this sitting in my DVR. Why they'd premiere this episode on a throwaway timeslot on a Sunday morning is anyone's guess, but the episode title "Masters of Evil" had my interest piqued.
It unfolded as any normal episode involving a team-up of villains would and seeing the assembly of Enchantress, Executioner, Baron Zemo, Crimson Dynamo, The Abomination, and Wonder Man was pretty neat. And I can't say I didn't get a big kick out of watching Zemo single-handedly take down The Abomination.
Black Panther: I AM an Avenger and I will meet my end with pride! Hawkeye: I'm gonna meet mine with kicking and screaming.
The standard for these kinds of episodes is still Justice League's "Injustice Gang" episode, but this one capably stands on its own. It's a fun half-hour, so if you missed it, try finding it on Marvel's site this week and give it a go.
Its either Loki or Doom. I have been catching them here and there. The show seems more in-tuned to be action orientated with throw away lines for fanboys. Its still better then the current GI Joe show. God that is just terrible.

Pairing the two Abrams shows makes sense to me. I'd rather see Alias @ 10 sunday, since it would an interesting lead out from Housewives. That Soderbergh thing is very reminiscient of, I think, the Decalogue.
