Agent Carter follows the story of Peggy Carter (Atwell). It’s 1946, and peace has dealt Peggy Carter a serious blow as she finds herself marginalized when the men return home from fighting abroad. Working for the covert SSR (Strategic Scientific Reserve), Peggy must balance doing administrative work and going on secret missions for Howard Stark, all while trying to navigate life as a single woman in America, in the wake of losing the love of her life – Steve Rogers. Reaper creators Michele Fazekas & Tara Butters serve as executive producers/showrunners, Captain America: The First Avenger‘s Steve McFeely & Christopher Marcus wrote the script and also executive produce, along with Marvel’s Jeph Loeb.

What's wrong with this review?

Let us know why you think this review is inappropriate.

Agent Carter is an awesome mix of two of my favourite genres: action/adventure and period pieces. It has tons of the elements I love in both, like great fight scenes and incredible texture (i.e., period costumes and sets).

I'll be honest and say that I was drawn to try this show because of Captain America and The Avengers films, but Agent Carter really holds my attention all on her own. I love that she's sharp, independent and has sass. In every episode, I'm excited to watch her take-downs, especially since she's constantly underestimated.

Personally, I think this show slays Agents of SHIELD, which didn't even touch my expectations when it came out. Highly recommend!
