While Marvel One-Shot: Agent Carter (2013) used vintage lenses to create a period look, the TV series budget did not allow for such expenses. Therefore, director of photography Gabriel Beristain went back to a technique that was used in the forties: by putting vintage Christian Dior stockings over the lens. See more »
Agent Carter turns out to be an interesting espionage and period series. It serves as a nice prequel to Agents of SHIELD, and if not a better TV series overall, although it's early to tell.
All the references and "easter eggs" in the two part episode premiere are great but this is not what makes the series special, it is the feeling you get watching Agent Carter. The music, the cars, the typical diners, the jazzy clubs, 1946 New york,... All this elements make Agent Carter a stylish piece, relying on Peggy Carter, not only as an action hero but a woman in the 1940s.
If you love Marvel, you're going to have fun with this one. And even if you're a non-marvel fan-boy/girl, you'll be satisfied with the tone of the Series and Peggy Carter kicking some ass.
