Storyline

Agent Carter is contacted by old acquaintance Howard Stark when he is framed for unleashing his deadliest weapons and can trust no one else. To help Peggy clear Stark's name, he insists his butler, Edwin Jarvis, be at her beck and call--whether she likes it or not. But the risk is great: If caught, Agent Carter could be targeted as a traitor and spend the rest of her days in prison...or worse.

Trivia

The Vita ray scanner that agent Carter uses has a tag that says "Property of Dr. Erskine". Dr. Abraham Erskine (Stanley Tucci) was the man who changed Steve Rogers (Chris Evans) into the super soldier Captain America in Captain America: The First Avenger (2011). See more »

Goofs

When the alarm in the office goes off, there are clocks visible around the alarm. The time on the New York clock is 10:40. About 15 seconds later, as the agents go into the meeting room, the New York clock has gone back 5 minutes to 10:35. It is definitely the same clock because the alarm is visible next to it.

You are a credit to your profession, if the men in your office can't see that, they're fools
24 July 2017 | by jhudson-11704See all my reviews

For the MCU's first female led TV/movie, they sure struck gold. Atwell's performance in the First Avenger proved that she's strong and doesn't bow down to the man, especially in the 40's. Atwell's Carter is proved an even greater heroine in her first episode. Her abilities as an agent, in physicality, manipulation and intelligence, were incredible.

One thing I must give credit for is making this show look like it actually is in the 40's. Not just the set design, wardrobe and cars but also the cinematography, making it a kind of bright, hazy appearance that gives it the sense of it being aged.

I did very much like all the characters, not only Carter. It was great to see Howard again and that he is still the same and very much like Tony. Jarvis has a sort of polite bravery and naivety that makes him so likable. The agents are good too, Sousa is very humble and knows that Carter deserves more. Thompson is a cocky guy but sure knows what he is doing and is a capable agent, same goes with Chief Dooley. I very much like that these agents are quite capable and while they are behind Carter on the case, they are still able to keep up.

While I do like the connections to the First Avenger, since it is set about a year after that film, it did go a tad too much, in my opinion, showing flashbacks to Steve crashing the plane, vita-rays, Carter mourning over Cap. It seemed like a reminder that it was after the film instead of just partially referencing it. I also thought the sexism in the show was kind of overdone. I do understand that in the era, women aren't truly recognized for their abilities, and that it is to show the obstacles Carter has to overcome, it could have been lessened and still be made relevant.

The writing and directing in this show is fantastic, setting up the story for a miniseries while not showing too much to do or too much to know.

+ Atwell's Carter + Supporting Cast + Great work making it look like the 40s + Writing and directing - Too much First Avenger references - I get it, sexism is rampant in the 40s

Final Score: 8.7/10
