First Class Television
Incredible really, how Haley Atwell and cast along with the writers, costume dept, action/stunt organisers as well as set designers have created something highly unusual: a high quality film production disguised as a TV show. So what exactly has Agent Carter done that's different? Well, dear reader, every scene's astonishing attention to detail might have something to do with it, suggesting the people involved love AC, having taken it to their hearts and boy does it show!
What an amazing breath of fresh air, the dialogue is exceptional, the period design extraordinary, the premise thrilling and the action exciting, somewhat more reminiscent of Indiana Jones than your typical TV fare.
Meanwhile, the ratings reflect audience appreciation, even though the show has not been marketed heavily, episode by episode the numbers have really started to pick up with DVR outdoing live viewing which itself is an outstanding achievement. Agent Carter compares very favourably to AoS as well as Gotham even though they both received a high level of promotion. It is this fact as well as all the other favourable elements that suggests Agent Carter is here to stay and hopefully other networks might learn a lesson or two on how it should be done.
I look forward to many more of Peggy Carters adventures with a reborn sense of fun and excitement!
