The main over arching plot of the series of Howard Stark enlisting Peggy to help him retrieve his stolen inventions is an adaption of the story arc, "Armor Wars" from the Iron Man comics, where Tony Stark hunts down his stolen armor tech. See more »
I love the retro theme and Agent Carter herself is just so appealing. Classy, elegant, yet smart and knows how to kick some butt! They've taken a supporting character from the Captain America films and gave her her own world, and its full of adventure! The only thing I don't get is what is Jarvis' motivation for risking life and limb for Ms Carter. It made sense in season 1 when they were both trying to clear Stark's (Jarvis' boss) name, but in season 2 it just seems weird.
But that weird thing aside, the show is great! It's very different from other Marvel shows or movies.
I also like how they are gradually building depth into the character such as when they showed a bit of her history back when she was engaged to someone. This makes her more 'real' and humanizes her.
