Trivia

James D'Arcy almost had to pass on the role of Jarvis because of his commitment to the British TV series Broadchurch (2013). Luckily, a way was found to not have the two shooting schedules overlap. D'Arcy's last day of shooting for Broadchurch ended at midday and by three in the afternoon he was on a plane to Los Angeles to begin work on Agent Carter the next day. See more »

TV Delight of the Year?
19 January 2015 | by vespet2000See all my reviews

What usually makes me come to IMDb and write a review is anger at some really dumb show and the lazy ways its creators do it, hoping everybody under the sun is a complete fool. Then, I had never read or watched any comics or comics based production whether from Marvel or whatever. So, what made me come here to give this show 9 stars out of ten?

First, it is extremely well-written (congratulations to the writers), witty, sophisticated, it is essentially a continuation of the tongue-in-cheek humor from the Roger Moore's James Bond movies. The plots are well-thought out (based on the first 3 episodes) with only tiny, microscopic holes here and there. After all, they have to adapt a comics, science fiction story to the TV format of 42 minutes. The acting is top-notch, the lead actress is stunning in all departments, totally immersed in her character, her emoting was convincing and her ability to deliver and act on the witty lines was fabulous.

It is really interesting to see how life in post war America was presented, the atmosphere, how people dealt with the consequences of the war. The creators seem to me to be slightly biased against the SSR people (essentially performing the tasks that in real life were prerogatives of the FBI). Beating detainees to a pulp, really? Western counter-intelligence agencies used to have other ways to outsmart their opponents, I gather. At this point women had proved to be very good at spying so a spy agency should value its female agents way more than in this series.

Apart from these two issues (obviously political, but this is Hollywood after all), the show is a real gem, highly aesthetic, sophisticated journey throughout a long-forgotten world. The show's writers better not become lazy any time soon, though. It often happens.
