TODAY'S FEATURE IS BLOG #4022 - I had meant to blog about this TV mini-series at the end of the last episode. However, I just didn't get to doing it. After watching the return of Marvel Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Tuesday night this week, I just had to do it today.
You see, Agent Carter was a 'fill-in' mini-series shown on the ABC Network. It ran for eight episodes, starting on January 6th of 2015, and ending on February 24th. It ran while Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. was on hiatus in the same time slot.
I found the writing of the episodes and the presentation of the material to be well written and well filmed. I like stories in this time period, 1946 after World War II was finished. The actors on this show were well cast, and the eight episodes were pretty tight in getting the story told.
What was the series about? Here is the plot:
ABC presents its second action packed series from the creative minds at Marvel in “Marvel’s Agent Carter,” inspired by the feature films Marvel’s "Captain America: The First Avenger" and Marvel’s "Captain America: The Winter Soldier," along with the short "Marvel One-Shot: Agent Carter."
I am 'Old School', in that I've been around reading Marvel Comics at the start of the Marvel Age of Comics. So my Marvel continuity is a little different from those that started reading Marvel Comics in their 'Ultimate' comics line.
The only weird thing that really stuck in my mind was Peggy mentioning Junior Juniper as being alive in 1946, which of course didn't happen, as he died in an early issue of Sgt. Fury and His Howling Commandos. Other than that, the storylines were well constructed and made sense to me.
I found the entire mini-series to be TV well worth watching, and suggest you check this out if you haven't been following it during January through February. You know... I really did enjoy this mini-series. Especially after watching the return of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. this week. That series is kind of up and down in presentation in my point of view.
