Agent Carter

Hey! I apologize for the lack of posts lately. I have been trying to put together an important page for my blog here, and life has been fairly busy (plus I managed to get some sort of allergy or whatever.) but I want to blog about a show that was premiered last week.

One of Marvel’s top television shows, Agent Carter, was a hit last Tuesday when their second season premiered. The show was very popular, and actually became the most popular topic talked about on Tumblr. My family gathered around the big screen with bowls of cheesy popcorn in the hopes that this season would be awesome!

I actually didn’t watch Agent Carter when it first was on TV, but not a day after Christmas, as soon as we received the show, my whole family introduced it to me. The setting was awesome (I am a big fan of the 40’s era.) and the characters were portrayed in interesting and fun ways.  It ranks right up there with Agent of S.H.I.E.L.D.

The story follows a woman by the name of Peggy Carter, who was a respected leader of the army during the war and a good friend of Steve Rogers (Captain America.) With a heart full of remorse and sadness, Peggy not only has to deal with that but also the adjustment of living back in the normal world, where women were not respected and were more viewed as coffee people in the work place.

One day, Peggy met with Stark, who helped Captain America become who he was and a scientist.  Stark was on the run from SSR and he needed Peggy to do some things for him while he was off in hiding, so he left his butler Jarvis with her and ran off. Now the real trouble starts with having to keep what she knows about Stark a secret and trying to solve mysteries while watching her back for a certain woman and her counterpart who want her dead.

The show does remind the viewer of what happened in the important scenes of Captain America, but you probably won’t fully understand what is going on. Luckily for me, I sat with the bro when he watched the movie a few times over, so I remembered some incidents.

The show definitely has a different feel from the hit show Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Suits and skirts definitely give the feel that this isn’t modern, although there are some modern units and devices in the show that really make it interesting. The chase for HYDRA’s history is still going on, though, and while Peggy is trying to uncover the secrets of Captain America’s enemy, the S.H.I.E.L.D. crew is receiving some chilling discoveries that could topple both of the shows’ worlds.

I am an Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. fan, I admit. Though the acting was very poor in the beginning of the show, and it seemed like they were lacking a good plot, they got a move on, but Agent Carter was immediately up and rolling without problems. That was what impressed me about this show. Marvel seemed almost ready to show Peggy Carter’s future.

And now for the review. There was not a whole lot of swearing in the show, and all scenes have so far been clean, so for a good plot, cleanliness, and well-built characters, I give this show an 8 out of 10. It’s appropriate for children and is interesting for the adults, so the whole family can gather around!

Thanks for reading! I there is a topic you want me to consider writing about, feel free to comment below any of my posts!

Have a wonderful week!
