Marvel Cinematic Universe Ranking Phase II

Since the last time I did this list there have been more films set in the Marvel Cinematic Universe so I saw fit to update that list ahead of the imminent release of the long awaited Avengers: Infinity War. I’ve altered some of the text on the entries that belonged to the previous list where…

Marvel’s Agent Carter – Season 2 Episode 10

“Hollywood Ending” Marvel’s Agent Carter wraps up its second –and possibly final- season with an episode that closes off the Zero Matter story while offering some closure for several lingering plot threads. The ending to the Zero Matter problem comes across as a little rushed and doesn’t capitalise on the potential that was created over…

Marvel’s Agent Carter – Season 2 Episode 9

“A Little Song and Dance” Marvel’s Agent Carter starts to bring things to a close with the penultimate episode of the season -and possibly the series- raising the stakes for everyone concerned. Before I get into the actual episode I have to talk about the musical number at the beginning. It had absolutely nothing to…

Marvel’s Agent Carter – Season 2 Episode 8

“The Edge of Mystery” Marvel’s Agent Carter supplies another double episode as the Zero Matter mystery deepens and the characters are all tested in different ways. As with last week I’m reviewing this episode without having seen the next one so my opinion isn’t altered by future knowledge. The episode immediately deals with the fallout…

Marvel’s Agent Carter – Season 2 Episode 7

“Monsters” Marvel’s Agent Carter caps off the double bill with further development of Whitney’s desire to gain more power. I mentioned in my review of the previous episode that I really appreciated Peggy’s injury being taken seriously to the point that the entire episode is built around the limitations she has as a result. I’m…

Marvel’s Agent Carter – Season 2 Episode 6

“Life of the Party” Marvel’s Agent Carter races towards the end of the season with another double bill that starts with Peggy sitting on the sidelines due to her injury sustained in the last episode. As with the last double bill I have written this review without seeing the next one in order to not…

Marvel’s Agent Carter – Season 2 Episode 5

“The Atomic Job” Marvel’s Agent Carter lets Peggy partake in a bit of thieving when she has to arrange to steal a dead body and two atomic bombs. All in a day’s work for Peggy Carter! The reason for needing to steal these strange items is initially to help Jason who believes that the Zero…

Marvel’s Agent Carter – Season 2 Episode 4

“Smoke and Mirrors” Marvel’s Agent Carter delves into the past of both Peggy and Whitney to show how both women became what they currently are. The question of what Peggy was like before her introduction in Captain America: The First Avenger is one that has been unanswered up to this point and possibly didn’t need…

Marvel’s Agent Carter – Season 2 Episode 3

“Better Angels” Marvel’s Agent Carter deals with the fallout of the previous episode as Peggy tries to clear the name of a man she knows to be innocent. It turns out that Jason Wilkes wasn’t killed after all. I didn’t know last week that he was a main cast member which was just as well…
