    Agent Carter

    Saw the two hour premiere. ABSOLUTELY FABULOUS.

    I liked what I saw. First of all Agent Carter is a full bodied curvy woman who can handle herself with a gun and in a fight. The outright sexism in the SSR office outraged me until I realized how common that used to be and sometimes still is. Luving Jarvis. I see the beginnings of Agent Carter's Scooby Gang in Jarvis and maybe in Sousa.

    I watched the first episode. It was pretty good. I liked how they stayed true to the look of the 40s down to the mannerisms, weapons used etc. Plus I love Hayley Atwell so I'd watch her in most anything.

    I enjoyed this thoroughly. I think I like the story better than Agents of SHIELD. Loved the funny lines - the line about teaching the alphabet made me crack up. I also love the feel of the 40's; the clothes, signs, cars, technology.

    I love when a show does an era and gets it right.

    I loved this show one of the best pilots of a show in ages. Agent Cater is a great heroine I love everything she embodies.

    I liked that also but at the very beginning I thought I saw a mistake as far as Carter making tea with a tea bag until I Googled it an found out that tea has been put into tea bags since 1904. I like it when a show makes me learn something.

    One thing I especially liked is that while the first hour was strong most series start to lag in the second hour, this show did not both the first and second hour were equally strong. I also like that the female lead did not try to use her feminine wiles to get what she needed to get. There is one point where others may say she did but she herself did not go all sexy slut like many actresses do much more ice princess but not totally unapproachable. I like that she is using her brain and knows how to do chemistry in her own bathroom. Very impressive.

    Until we do, let me just say that I absolutely loved this show. I'm really glad they made it historically accurate and showed the sexism women had to endure back then. Makes you really appreciate how far we've come.


    On a lighter note, I love history shows, so I loved all the details--cars, clothing, etc.
