Just finished the first two episodes of Marvels agent carter and there are 5 reasons it wins on first touch.
1: setting. The 1940’s setting plays well on the small screen and feels way more alive that most television settings.
2: It’s a strong Female lead in the Marvel universe who isnt wearing spandex. That alone gets it points.
3: Jarvis. Howard Starks butler adds a much needed sidekick and his wife I have a feeling we will never see is a very important setpiece for the writers.
4: It feels Big. Where Marvels Agents of Shield lacked focus for most of the first season, we already have a clear and dangerous problem to deal with and it just works on every level.
5: Haley Atwell. She is Peggy Carter. Anyone else wishing this would permanetly replace Agents of Shield?
