Agent Carter follows the story of Peggy Carter (Atwell). It’s 1946, and peace has dealt Peggy Carter a serious blow as she finds herself marginalized when the men return home from fighting abroad. Working for the covert SSR (Strategic Scientific Reserve), Peggy must balance doing administrative work and going on secret missions for Howard Stark, all while trying to navigate life as a single woman in America, in the wake of losing the love of her life – Steve Rogers. Reaper creators Michele Fazekas & Tara Butters serve as executive producers/showrunners, Captain America: The First Avenger‘s Steve McFeely & Christopher Marcus wrote the script and also executive produce, along with Marvel’s Jeph Loeb.

What's wrong with this review?

Let us know why you think this review is inappropriate.

I'm still mourning the loss of Agent Carter. As one of the finest shows I have ever seen to feature a female protagonist, Agent Carter manages to effortlessly frame its eponymous heroine at the front and centre of its action. Not only is it bold and unashamed in its criticism of sexism in our societies, but it also manages to turn the same into an effective plot device. The show thus becomes an astounding portrayal of the breaking of glass ceilings - and that too while set in a less progressive time, no less.
