Critic Reviews for Marvel's Agent Carter Season 1

All Critics (46) | Top Critics (26)

The series successfully blends super-heroics with women's post-war fight against sexism in a fun, winking way.

Jan 6, 2015 | Full Review…

To make Agent Carter work, and work well, Atwell and ABC knew she needed to be a relatable human first, and a subsidiary member of the populous Marvel universe second. Those priorities are straightened out efficiently on Tuesday's (opening) episode.

Jan 6, 2015 | Rating: B+ | Full Review…

Peggy deserved her own story line and now she's got one.

Oct 21, 2015 | Full Review…

Agent Carter is ridiculously enjoyable. Despite not having the strongest story (another glittering orb Marvel? really?), the show is quick, genuinely fun, and Hayley Atwell is a damn delight as Peggy Carter.

Jan 7, 2015 | Full Review…

Atwell brings some presence to the lead role, flashing specs of vulnerability while mostly keeping her shoulder to the wheel.

Jan 7, 2015 | Rating: B- | Full Review…

It actually feels like a TV show, with a clear sense of purpose and a savvy sense of style. Rather than biding time between blockbusters, like the dot-connecting drudgery of S.H.I.E.L.D., Agent Carter travels back in it

Jan 7, 2015 | Full Review…

Way to go.

Jul 24, 2018 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

Fun, stylish and energetic, Marvel's Agent Carter is everything we wanted it to be - and everything Marvel Studios' first foray into lady adventure character stories should be.

Jun 21, 2018 | Full Review…

Agent Carter has never leaned too heavily on action; that's just not what makes it exciting. The show follows its own rhythm, one that's a little more laid back than the Marvel films.

Jun 14, 2018 | Full Review…

There's warmth and humour by the bucketload.

Apr 26, 2017 | Full Review…

Agent Carter's two-hour premiere knocks most pilot episodes out of the water.

Jan 18, 2017 | Full Review…

A stylish, fast-moving dramatic series with good humor that has an excellent cast of recognizable faces, if not names.

    The best Marvel show not on netfilx. A fantastic cast and the one of those shows that feels different. The woman empowerment message is really cool.

    Marvel's Agent Carter is my favorite superhero show, my favorite Marvel show, and one of my favorite shows of all time. Hayley Atwell's performance as Peggy Carter is exceptional, she really gets to shine as the character even more than she got to in Captain America: The First Avenger and she puts so much emotion and strength into her performance and her performance and the character show that a woman can do a job just as good if not better than any man could and she plays a single working woman living in the 1940s having to juggle work, her social life, and dealing with the trials and tribulations of a woman living in the 40s perfectly. Hayley Atwell gives a emotionally powerful and inspirational performance, her performance is one of my top 5 favorite Marvel performances and Peggy is one of my top 5 favorite Marvel characters. The supporting performances are stupendous especically from Bridget Regan, Dominic Cooper, James D'Arcy, Lyndsy Fonseca, and Enver Gjokaj. The setting is outstanding, I love 40s look and it feels and looks really authentic. The makeup and hairstyling is phenomenal especially on Hayley Atwell, Bridget Regan, Lyndsy Fonseca, and Dominic Cooper. The costumes are excellent especially on Hayley Atwell and Bridget Regan. The props are superb especially the cars and guns. The makeup, hair, costumes, and props are all authentically 40s looking. The visual effects are spectacular especially the nitramene bomb explosions. This is an A+ first season.

    Nice development of Agent Carter. Hayley Atwell with a strong showing.
  • Feb 07, 2020
    A giant missed opportunity for Marvel, which may have pushed the series in a new, fresh direction compared to rather cookie cutter, unified tone of the movies, utilizing its titular character, time period and setting to create a real noir television. They didn't.
