Season 1 Episode 8 – “Valediction” Agent Carter ends a short yet intensely memorable run with an episode that ties up many of the loose ends floating around. The episode picks up where the previous left off with the aftermath of the gas -now dubbed “Midnight Oil”- deployed in a movie theater causing everyone inside…

Season 1 Episode 7 – “Snafu” Penultimate episode of Agent Carter already? Where does the time go? It has been an absolute joy to watch this series unfold over such a short time and this episode was no exception. Last week was definitely a game changer as far as the narrative goes with Peggy caught…

Season 1 Episode 6 – “A Sin to Err” I’m continually impressed by how quickly Agent Carter moves from a narrative point of view. Given plot threads never seem to hang around for longer than they need to and the succinct 8 episode run definitely seems to have a good structure to it. The ongoing…

Season 1 Episode 5 – “The Iron Ceiling” Definitely the best episode of Agent Carter yet as it took the show to a new location and gave us a nice change of scenery from the urban locales that we’ve seen so far. There was so much great stuff going on in the episode that it’s…

Season 1 Episode 4 – “The Blitzkrieg Button” After a week off the air, Agent Carter returns to further explore the mystery of Howard Stark’s apparent framing. Dominic Cooper returns as Howard Stark in this episode and it changes up the existing dynamics somewhat. I like the way Howard and Peggy interact with his constant…

Season 1 Episode 3 – “Time and Tide” Agent Carter continues the short run of episodes before Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D returns to screens. Peggy and Jarvis close in on the thief of Howard Stark’s inventions as more complications are thrown their way. As with the first two episodes the story flows really well and remains…

Season 1 Episode 2 – “Bridge and Tunnel” The second episode of Agent Carter proves that the quality of the first wasn’t a fluke and continues to build on the strong setup. I really like the dynamic that is being developed between Peggy and Jarvis. His droll wit is a great match for her standoffish…

Season 1 Episode 1 – “Now is Not the End” Marvel’s ever growing tapestry extends into another TV show in the form of Agent Carter. The show picks up a year after the events of Captain America: The First Avenger with Peggy Carter (Hayley Atwell) working for the SSR -the precursor to S.H.I.E.L.D- doing the…
