The noirish feel of old Hollywood fits the show perfectly, and between the developing mystery and deepening relationships, this season is off to a great start.

It became... nothing more than a Hayley Atwell vehicle that let everything else from production value to narrative importance fall to the wayside if it meant the show's lead actress getting in just one extra spunky line of dialogue.

It was fun, but maybe a two-hour premiere loaded down with so much table-setting and story setup wasn't the best way to kick things off.

You wouldn't be alone in feeling that this season of Agent Carter lacked a certain urgency...that's really the rub, that Season 2 never seemed like it had enough to say on Peggy's journey...

Agent Carter remains one of Marvel's strongest TV properties.
December 20, 2016
Peggy Carter (Hayley Atwell) is back for more with a second season, and it's clear that the trend of awesome, complex female heroes will keep on gaining momentum.
February 2, 2016
After just one episode, Peggy and Jarvis' interactions continue to be sharp, entertaining and the show's strongest asset.

I for one, wish more of television would take the leap that is Agent Carter. At this point, I'm following her wherever she goes.

Where the two hour premiere really kicked off was at the introduction of a strange atomic energy called "Zero Matter."
January 20, 2016
Like last summer's Ant-Man, Agent Carter finds a way to make the smaller stakes of Peggy's noir sandbox as tense, credible, and addictively watchable as any other addition to the MCU.

All the additions made to Agent Carter season 2 benefit the series, but in the end the show's success is still rooted in Hayley Atwell's central performance, which only gains more texture as she spends more time with the character.

These first two episodes were pretty fun. And they didn't mention Captain America once!
January 20, 2016
Agent Carter's two-hour premiere has set up yet another mission that has already proven to be even more exciting than last season's involving Howard Stark and Midnight Oil.
January 20, 2016
[The setup is] opting for beats so trite that they feel like they're coming out of a spy parody.

January 20, 2016
Agent Carter has set up a second season that could prove to be even better than its first -- which was solid in its own right.
January 20, 2016
The first two episodes of Season 2... feel more like pieces of the larger mega-franchise puzzle, and that's not its only problem right off the bat.
January 20, 2016
The main plotline, with Wilkes, Whitney and Isodyne, is a really cool one and Peggy's dynamic with all of these characters in Los Angeles is really strong.

January 20, 2016
Agent Carter is just far enough removed from Marvel's grand plans that the show can afford to take risks. This dual premiere doles out some clunky exposition, but it also builds a compelling foundation for a strong season.

Agent Carter returns tonight with its second-season debut to remind us that ABC has a powerful Marvel superhero worth praising anew.
January 20, 2016
What I loved most about the very strong return of Peggy Carter was that we wasted no time debating her abilities, watching her trying to please others, or eradicate sexism.
