New trailer for Avengers: Age of Ultron and why I miss Agent Carter

March 5, 2015 Leave a comment

If you didn’t get a chance to watch Agent Carter, you missed an excellent show. Set in the late 40s after Captain America vanished, Peggy Carter (Hayley Atwell) moves to NYC to continue her work for the Strategic Scientific Reserve (SSR), the precurser to S.H.I.E.L.D. She isn’t taken very seriously by her male counterparts, but she lives with it as secretly she’s helping Howard Stark (Tony Stark’s father if you will recall) as he’s found himself framed for being a weapons supplier to some pretty bad blokes. Stark’s butler (Edwin Jarvis) helps her on a pretty consistent basis.

Agent Carter is/was a great show all around. The storylines were top notch, the costuming and set designs were set in brilliant colors, and it was true to the time period in pretty much every way. Plus (and this is a big plus for me), Peggy shows that a woman even in the 40s can handle herself and deliver some ass-kicking when needed. if you have the ABC Go app, you can still watch it online until Netflix releases it. Hopefully there will be a season 2.

Here’s a behind the scenes looks at Agent Carter:

Two very good reasons to watch The Avengers

Thor and Captain America (Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth). Very nice.

 

I myself haven’t gone yet because it’s finals week and I have a pretty tough one to study for, but I am hoping it will happen sometime between Friday and Sunday night. That would be so sweet.
