The first two episodes, and Hayley Atwell, are incredible.

I thought it was alright; definitely better than Agents of SHIELD (although that's the very definition of damning with faint praise). One of my big issues with it is that they never explain why Carter's in NYC. I mean, shouldn't she really be involved with the British equivalent of the SSR? It seems like her own government is awfully unconcerned about her.

SSRA was designed to be a joint Allies effort, I assume it is now a joint NATO effort. I loved it.

I really enjoyed this show, I wish it would be a full series but not sure if that will happen. I think the main reason I like this over Agents of SHIELD is it actually gives a reason as to why no heroes show up, because its after WW2 and none of them exist. Not sure how she went from bad ass solider to being know as Captain America's Lady friend, unless this takes place before the Agent carter short film.

I gave up on SHIELD a long time ago. My issue with SHIELD was that it takes place in a post Avengers world, Heroes are not only Active but more keep popping up, yet even with a roster of Shield agents that are heroes none of them help. No Mockingbird, no Agent 13, Jessica Drew , Falcon, none of them? I wasn't expecting a Marvel movie turned season but with a cast of over 8,000 people they don't use any of them?

(Now I might fully be wrong as I only made it up to Episode 8 as I refused to watch the Winter Soilder episode as I haven't seen the movie at the time.)


Back on topic, I feel this show is very well written, as I do look forward to the other episodes, and where all this is going.

The point of Agents of Shield is that you can't always rely on heroes to show up and save the day; at some point, you have to take control of things yourself.

How boring would Torchwood have been if the Doctor was in every episode saving the day? Not to mention how much less would it mean when they DO show up.

PS: Sif and Lorelei were on last season and Mockingbird is an agent this season and the last episode just saw

. More than likely we'll see a lot more Avengers when Age of Ultron gets closer, too.

As for Agent Carter, I loved it - I really hope it does get picked up for a full series (even if they do keep the UK system and make it 8-10 episodes each).

I had to explain what I was watching to the Old Lady: "Captain America's girlfriend teams up with Iron Man's dad (and butler) to do stuff". My own summary is about the same, but instead of "to do stuff", I'm thinking "to do Armor Wars, 1946".

The first two or three episodes REALLY hit you over the head with the whole female equality thing. Things started getting a little more exciting around the 4th episode.

Fun little "Easter egg" with Anton Vanko popping up. Have a suspicion where they're going with the Russian girls, too.

Kinda of meh ending. Not loving Thomsposon's promotion as well as the show not connecting to Shield. I did enjoy the big villain reveal at the end. Atwell needs to be in Emmy discussion.

Someone posted a head-canon that Thompson was Ward's grandfather. I like to believe this.
