Agent Carter‘s “Hollywood Ending” is exactly that, in the most 1940’s sense of the term. That is: every plot is resolved, each character completes a satisfying arc, and also there are kisses. Nice kisses. Kisses I’m not complaining about, for once!
This has gotten kind of squirrelly. Does anyone else feel like Agent Carter is scraping its wing tips trying to land? Overall, the thing is solid, but I’m a bit like “???” with some of the persnickety details here. Let’s get those out of the way first.
Agent Carter makes me happy. All hail Whitney Frost! Huzzah for romances where ladies still have agency. Yay MCU interconnectivity! And give me all the sci-fi science you can possibly muster because I will inhale it like a kid who’s gotten hold of the cookie jar.
Sometimes, an episode of television is just pure fun and beyond that nothing else particularly matters. Agent Carter hits just enough notes in “The Atomic Job” to make it a joyful sidequest. This episode was one big detour down action/adventure lane, and yet it was so phenomenal at it that we’re tickled.
Agent Carter goes for backstory in “Smoke & Mirrors” to give context to all that espionage. It’s a solid episode with the usual balance between action and intrigue with the added bonus of a little patriarchy smashing.
Agent Carter is back for real now! Hurray! I’m throwing streamers and serving cake! “Better Angels” saw the return of not only the series’ stylistics, but a proper mystery plot, and some complex characterization as well.
I didn’t believe that season one of Agent Carter could live up to my impossible expectations, yet it blew them out of the water. It turns out that the only thing Agent Carter has to live up to now is its own first season.
