Storyline

Agent Carter is contacted by old acquaintance Howard Stark when he is framed for unleashing his deadliest weapons and can trust no one else. To help Peggy clear Stark's name, he insists his butler, Edwin Jarvis, be at her beck and call--whether she likes it or not. But the risk is great: If caught, Agent Carter could be targeted as a traitor and spend the rest of her days in prison...or worse.

Jack Thompson: Carter, uh... while we're really busy with your friend Stark, if you don't mind these surveillance reports need to be filed, and... you're really so much better at that kind of thing.
Peggy Carter: What kind of thing is that, Agent Thompson? The alphabet? I could teach you. Let's start with words beginning with A.

Bring On the Female Comic-Book Leads
8 January 2015 | by ThomasDrufkeSee all my reviews

For a long time females struggled with getting prominent roles in comic book films and T.V. shows. Each studio was very coy about wanting to take a chance on shaping a franchise around a commodity that fair or not, has yet to be proved. But I have to say after watching the pilot of Agent Carter, I was immediately wondering why it took so long. Hayley Atwell is terrific as the bada** spy agent for Shield.

It begins with her mourning Captain Steve Rogers AKA Captain America's 'death', which was definitely a cool way of acknowledging her back story without doing the Agents of Shield way of overkilling the superhero references. The episode also has a few other easter eggs planted and typical Marvel fan service that is only going to get better. Where Agents of Shield failed with casting capable actors who create interesting characters, Agent Carter does the opposite by getting proved actors and keep the season episodes to 8, which is a great move. You can already tell the mystery behind Leviathan growing and by only having 6 episodes left until the season finale it creates a sense of excitement and urgency behind each episode. Where as a 23 episode arc there are always a few fillers that don't develop the plot at all.

The pilot did a great job of creating characters such as Thompson and Dooley who show the darker and sketchy sides of Shield, while also having Howard Stark and even Jarvis be reinvigorated into the universe in a more fascinating way than in years past. But the real star is Peggy Carter, who is quickly becoming one of my favorite Marvel characters. The 40's setting gives a new edge to a female lead and ensures we will get plenty of funny old style punch-lines.

+Atwell is back!

+Interesting supporting characters

+The story is already heating up

8.0/10
