Something funny happened about a week ago: I was half-watching a playoff football game on ESPN when I suddenly heard the voice of Hayley Atwell. Looking up, I discovered that they had finally decided to leverage the mighty power of the Disney corporation (owner of ESPN, Marvel, and ABC) in order to promote the best part of the MCU. Yes, friends, ESPN was airing an Agent Carter commercial during its highest-rated broadcast of the year.
With a dynamite premiere, hopefully the show is going to be able to keep some of those new eyes focused on Agent Carter, and earn us all a Season 3.
Agent Carter is more like a miniseries than anything else, which makes each episode a little difficult to review on its own. When the show is over, I can’t wait to binge watch the entire series, because it’ll be like an eight-hour movie. I’m stuck in a bit of a hard spot, though, because I also don’t ever want this show to end. Last night’s episode was just as excellent as all the episodes that preceded it, and it also raised the stakes for everyone in Peggy’s orbit. Spoilers below!
