Agent Carter: Best of the Year

Is it too early to call Marvel's Agent Carter the best new show of the year? This show represents the early beginnings of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., and if you like that show, you'll love Agent Carter.

Agent Carter is clever and willing to undermine what little credibility she has with the Strategic Scientific Reserve (SSR before SHIELD) to protect her friends and ultimately find the truth. Peggy Carter, call her Agent, using the phone company as a cover identity to her true role in the SSR. Unfortunately, she was taken more seriously when there was a war and now that war is over.

In two weeks, and three hours of episodes, Agent Carter has already wrapped me around its finger. The show deals with a hero that's struggling to gain recognition among her peers, and those same peers question her heroism during the war once it's over. She trusts very few individuals and is willing to defy the organization she works for to protect those she believes are important to the good of humanity.

This show already resembles the making of a long-running series, even though it's only intended for seven parts. Will they find a way to extend this amazing television show?

What do you think so far? Do you want to see more Agent Carter?
