Marvel’s Agent Carter | Series Premiere Recap

Listen to the Podcast

Seven o’clock Terri, eight o’clock Wigler, nine o’clock podcast! It’s the AGENT CARTER premiere, on Post Show Recaps!

Join the GAME OF THRONES BOOK CLUB co-hosts Josh Wigler (@roundhoward) and Terri Schwartz (@terri_schwartz) as they get together to talk about AGENT CARTER, the newest television series set inside the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The show picks up after Captain America disappears at the end of World War II, and follows Peggy Carter (Hayley Atwell) as she mends her broken heart by way of super-spy shenanigans. Think ALIAS meets Marvel in the 1940s, and you have a good idea of what you’re in store for.

Josh and Terri talk about their take on the AGENT CARTER premiere and Hayley Atwell’s ownership of the title role, their assessment of the supporting characters, how they think CARTER will tie into the greater Marvel Cinematic Universe (if at all), and more.

Plus! Josh and Terri talk a little bit about AGENTS OF SHIELD’s second season (if you’re not caught up, prepare yourself for some spoilers),

Marvel’s upcoming Netflix series DAREDEVIL, and the first trailer for Marvel’s new movie ANT-MAN.

Post Show Recaps will return with more AGENT CARTER coverage once the first season finishes its run in February, right before the return of AGENTS OF SHIELD season two.

    It’s all so exciting! Agents of SHIELD, Agent Carter, all the upcoming movies and Netflix shows; Marvel is creating something truly unparalleled with their cinematic universe and it’s just a joy to experience everything coming together.

    Second to Game of Thrones podcasts, Marvel ones are the best ones here at PSrecaps so please keep them coming!

    I adore Agent Carter, the setting, the supporting cast and pretty much everything about the show. Enver Gjokaj was amazing on Dollhouse which was an underrated series as a whole, but his performance (especially as Topher and Dominic) was so enjoyable and memorable that I’ve been saying for years that he’s one of the most underrated actors on television. His character here on Agent Carter is alright but I hope he gets more juicy stuff to work with. Josh I love your mole patrol theory that he would be a Skrull, which would be mind blowing and extremely fun, but I guess the much sadder possibility that he’d be a HYDRA agent or something like that is more likely.

    It’s also so much fun to have Jarvis on the show and kind of see them fixing what some fans thought was disappointing about Jarvis being Iron Man’s AI system rather than the butler character from the comic books. James D’Arcy is just great in that role.

    I would hope that they wrap everything nicely by the end of the series, with leftover threads possibly being picked up in Agents of SHIELD. Then if they happen to make a second season of Agent Carter, it can be more self contained like a movie sequel rather than a tv series second season, to eliminate the possibility of ending on a cliffhanger that never gets properly resolved.

    Personally I’m much more a DC fan than Marvel. (have no intentions in watching Iron Man/Thor movies and have only seen one Captain America movie) and only really watched the Agents of Shield mid season finale. So most likely I won’t be watching this show either, but tbh am really excited for these upcoming Netflix series especially Luke Cage/ Iron Fist my favorite duo as a kid and really excited for this upcoming Ant Man movie. Hopefully that movie does well because the cast and more importantly Corey Stoll is awesome. I’ve wanted to see the adaptation cinema has taken since Honey I Shrunk the Kids and could mean Hank Pym gets an origins series which would allow the original AntMan/Wasp to be in the MCU.
    Do you guys watch any of the DC shows btw? Gotham is a fantastic television with some great acting and I’m really enjoying were flash is being taken, oh Arrow is cool I guess also.
