Coming in January, looks interesting.
I like the cast - Atwell, Lindsy Fonseca, and Enver from Dollhouse.

The concept does nothing for me. I didn't really think Agent Carter was a compelling character at all in the first Captain America. I really don't see her carrying a show. However, I agree the rest of the cast sounds pretty good and it is the Marvel cinematic universe. So, I'm interested enough to give it a shot.

Would you have preferred they rename it "Origins of SHIELD" or something?

I enjoyed the Marvel One-shot, so I am looking forward to the series.
I wonder how they'll address the fact that HYDRA was infiltrating from the very beginning.

Nope. That doesn't sound compelling at all. In fact it sounds like a show that would be full of land mines if they're not going to retcon stuff. For instance Coulson talking about how they didn't have a name for SHIELD all through Iron Man.

I loved Peggy in Captain America, and felt she's been the most well-rounded female character in the MCU to date. Im really looking forward to her series, and what appears to be several appearances in more movies.

That's not accurate. He called it by it's full name from his very first line of dialog. There were jokes about needing to shorten it. But the name was already in place, and there were comments about how the organization was not new.

"I'm Agent Phil Coulson with the Strategic Homeland Intervention, Enforcement and Logistics Division. "

Sounds like they had a name, to me.

At worst, their frequent use of the acronym would be retconned - but that being their first movie, before the whole plan was laid out, its not that big of a deal and can easily be chalked up to changes in policy over the years, and shifting from being a covert to openly known organization.

There's no place I can be since I found Serenity.


At this point it is only intended to fill the gap when SHIELD goes on its winter hiatus. There may be some tie-ins to Age of Ultron, CapAmerica3, etc. And of course, there is the chance it will come back for more episodes if it does well.

SHIELD will have it's fall finale on Dec. 9, then I suppose there will be various specials for three weeks. Agent Carter premieres Jan. 6 and will run for eight consecutive weeks, with SHIELD returning Mar. 3.

Well it's not the show I expected but it's about as interesting to me as I expected. I guess I'm going to slog through it just because it has potential cross over with Agents of Shield and other Marvel stuff. I expected this to be more about laying the groundwork for Shield. Instead it's a bunch of morons running an organization into the ground and Peggy who's got everything figured out. Kinda makes the twists in Captain America: The Winter Soldier less remarkable.

Yeah, I was expecting it to be about the formation of SHIELD as well.
Kinda disappointed it isn't but still find it entertaining.

It is possible they will get to that point at the end of this run of episodes, but it seems unlikely since there are only five more to go. IMDb isn't even listing the episode titles beyond the next two, so we have little to speculate on concerning the last three.

I need to go back and watch the SHIELD episodes in which Peggy appeared and see if they identified the year those events were occurring.

She's an agent, for what it's worth. Maybe they'll leave a nugget or seed for the start of SHIELD in the last episode or so.

The odd thing is that the "Marvel One Shot: Agent Carter" ended with her leaving SSR to head up SHIELD.
