Episode 1 and 2
Pilot / Bridge and Tunnel




So, I caught the Two-Hour Premiere last night, which was actually two separate episodes. So each episode clearly had distinctive story lines they were telling and that was okay with me. While watching both, I thought it was very telling that it felt like I was putting on very comfortable well-worn shoes and that was a good thing. Usually when jumping into any new series, there is a warming up phase to learn all the new characters and adjusting to how they are telling their stories. In this one there was none of that. Maybe a little of that had to do with them using quite a few scenes from the first Captain America movie, which did a great job of driving him the idea of just when and where Agent Carter (Hayley Atwell) takes place. There were two things that surprised me when watching the premiere. One, the humor. I found myself chuckling at some of the comedic bits, which I wasn't expecting at all. The show is funny when it wants to be. The second thing I kept thinking about was the correlation between Carter and another favorite show of mine: Alias. You wouldn't think that these two would have a connection, but they have more in common than you expect. It was fun and I'm definitely on board. I do hope they give Lyndsy Fonseca more to do. I think her playing "just a waitress" is kinda of misusing her talents here. Unless she's actually working for Hydra or something, which would be a nice twist. Also cool was seeing that Enver Gjokaj is on the series as well.
