Three sentence movie reviews: Agent Carter Season One
An excellent series that takes place in the post-war 1940s where Agent Peggy Carter has to fight not only crime, but sexism as she is one of the few OSS agents. It was never explained to my exactly why a British citizen would be a member of the OSS, but that’s my only gripe about this. And you get to enjoy a fine parade of 40s fashions.
Cost: I think Matt paid $3.00 for the first episode. The rest we watched on Hulu. Which has a lot of commercials. Which was one of the reasons I stopped watching TV.
Where watched: at home with Matt.

We DVRed this series and loved it. Tom and Lorenzo also commented on it which made it more fun! I also loved the fashion.
I loved this series hardcore, and am thrilled that it’s been renewed for a second season. I would watch it if the only two characters were Peggy and Jarvis, haha. The show definitely assumes that you’ve seen the first Captain America movie, and I think they explained in the movie why Peggy is part of OSS, but it’s been so long since I’ve seen it that I don’t remember.
I’ve been really disappointed to see a lot of comments online from people (mostly men) saying that, while they understand that sexism was bad in the 40s, they feel it’s overstated in the show. Whenever I read comments like that, I think to myself, “This is why we still have sexism.”
Oh my god they really say that? Really? Perhaps they don’t see the sexism that still continues to this very day?
