TV Show Review - Marvel's Agent Carter

 "What would Cap say if I left his best girl behind?"
"He'd say "Do as Peggy says".
" -Marvel's Agent Carter

Anyone that knows anything about the latest Marvel movies will instantly recognize Agent Peggy Carter from our favorite star spangled hero's first movie Captain America: The First Avenger. Critiques and fans alike enjoyed her so much in that movie that Marvel decided to give Ms Carter her own tv show.

The show, simply titled Agent Carter, aired during the mid-season break of Marvel's Agents of SHIELD.

I personally loved how they did that because we had something to watch while we waited for SHIELD to return. So well done Marvel. Definitely a good idea.

Not only did the show see the return of Peggy Carter, it also brought back the well-liked character of Howard Stark. The show also introduced new characters such a Edwin Jarvis (and, yes, Tony Stark named his A.I. after him).

Overall I think it was a well made show. While it doesn't make it on to my list of all-time-favorite-shows, it was pleasantly entertaining. I thought that it started out a little boring but definitely got better as it went along. Towards the end it started to introduce some really intriguing ideas. (such as the origins of Black Widow, anyone?)

Like I said above, I think the best thing about this series is that it filled up the space left by Agents of SHIELD and gave Marvel fans something to watch until it returned.

I think this show definitely has potential to go somewhere, and if you need something to watch I totally recommend it. I'm hoping it gets a season two cause I'd love to see it back again next year!


  1. I only watched the first two eps, but... origins of Black Widow? You've got me intrigued now. Maybe this summer I'll be able to watch the rest, once Agents of SHIELD quits eating up my show-watching time.

  2. It definitely gets better towards the end of the season. They were just beginning to hint at some pretty cool stuff. I hope it gets a second season!
