Marvel's Agent Carter: Season 1 (2015)
Critic Consensus: Focusing on Peggy Carter as a person first and an action hero second makes Marvel's Agent Carter a winning, stylish drama with bursts of excitement and an undercurrent of cheeky fun.

News & Interviews for Marvel's Agent Carter: Season 1
The series successfully blends super-heroics with women's post-war fight against sexism in a fun, winking way.
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.
With a star-making turn from Atwell and an overwhelming air of fun, it was a treat for both Marvel converts and new viewers.
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.
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.
