Marvel's Agent Carter is the latest edition to the ever-expanding Marvel universe. The show is closely linked to the "Captain America" movies and stars a co-star from those movies, Hayley Atwell as Peggy Carter. In post-war, 1946 New York City, Agent Carter is working for the Strategic Scientific Reserve and also being a top secret inside woman for Howard Stark (father of "Iron Man" Tony Stark). Rounding out the main cast is SSR chief Roger Dooley (Shea Whigham) and agents (Chad Michael Murray and Enver Gjoaki) as well as Howard Stark's butler, Edwin Jarvis (James D'Arcy).
BOTTOM LINE: I have a hard time with reviews of shows like this because I feel like I have a hard time analyzing it from an unbiased perspective. I also have a hard time judging franchise shows like this without the background knowledge of the films. But if this show wants to reach a mass audience, it needs to be able to reach viewers like me, so that's a problem.
