Peggy Carter to the rescue. And boy, can Marvel and ABC use her help.

After the obligatory flashbacks to 2011's Captain America: The First Avenger, from which ABC's new period entertainment/marketing opportunity/sleep aid Agent Carter springs, Agent Peggy Carter struts in.

A fairly entertaining conglomeration of nostalgia, postwar intrigue, comic-book science fiction and screwball comedy (with frequent interludes of bone-crunching violence).

Agent Peggy Carter is a marvelous addition to the cool women characters now prowling TV screens.

Audience Reviews for Marvel's Agent Carter: Season 1

Though initially shaky, Agent Carter quickly resolves itself to become worthwhile television, both independent of and connected to the larger Marvel Universe.

After hearing many great things about Agent Carter I decided to give it a go. Seemed it had everything I wanted from a Marvel thingy: it was short, the setting seemed interesting and Agent Carter was my favorite thing in the first Cap movie, but severely underused.

Unfortunately, Agent Carter is just passable entertainment. There's nothing wrong with it but nothing great either. The story is the usual Marvel stuff: shiny objects, bad guys want it, good guys too. Conspiracies so obvious ensue and nothing much will stick when it all ends. Despite having an awesome lead character, Agent Carter is ultimately boring, occasionally cheeky but never really connects to the Marvel universe or offers anything you haven't seen thousands of times before.

Marvel blunders once again with the prequel series Agent Carter, which further drags the Marvel Cinematic Universe into mediocrity. Set in the late 1940s, SSR officer Peggy Carter is recruited by Howard Stark to work undercover and clear his name of selling weapons on the black market. Carter is extensively re-written to be an action-hero, and it doesn't feel true to the character from the Captain America film. And for that matter, the whole setup of Stark being branded a trader seems preposterous. Still, there's some nice action and the actors do a fairly good job (given what they have to work with). Only eight episodes, Season 1 of Agent Carter wasn't meant to do much more than fill-in the winter hiatus of Agents of SHIELD, and this shows in it's clear lack of ambition; as nothing of any real consequence happens.
