It was one of the best shows of last year, overshadowed perhaps by Marvel’s other shows… Man they had a good TV year… but season 2 is here! Agent Carter. I actually blogged reviews of every episode last year, which was easy enough as there were only 8. I don’t think I’m going to do the same thing this year – but I thought I would write up some initial thoughts.
Yesterday’s alignment grid was for the Thor movies – today it’s the Captain America movies.

But I was worried – really worried – that it was going to not be able to pull it off. It’s doing something that no other TV show has done before, as a pre-sequel show where we know everything that eventually happens.
So will we keep watching it? Did they disappoint or succeed? Continue reading
