Agent Carter: “The Blitzkrieg Button” Review

agent carter official concept artWell, Agent Carter is finally back after a two week break, and right now, I’m so in love with both the story and Peggy that I’m not even sure I can bring myself to criticize any of its faults. Of course, that’s if it has faults. My love may have blinded me to them. Regardless, there was nothing about this episode that I hated. I have loved every minute of Agent Carter since it first aired, and I can only hope to keep loving it as the story progresses.

This week we had yet another amazing episode. Howard Stark comes back to town, Peggy’s coworkers continue to be assholes, Howard Stark is an asshole, and Peggy’s landlord is also a pretty reprehensible person. The SSR discovers a conspiracy theory in the works involving Howard, Peggy’s new neighbor is doing mysterious things, and Stan Lee shows up to make a cameo appearance. All in all, it was a great episode.

The omnipotent god of the Marvel Universe, everyone.
