Agent Carter Reviews:
The early reviews for the first episode of Marvel’s Agent Carter have been overwhelmingly positive, with most review sites comparing it favorably to Marvel’s other television series, Agents of Shield.
Critic Review Aggregator site Metacritic has given Marvel’s Agent Carter an overall score of 76.
From IGN (which gave it an 8.0 score out of 10):
With a very appealing leading lady, the highly enjoyable Peggy/Jarvis partnership and a cool period setting, there’s a lot to like about Agent Carter.
And from another review from Variety.com:
That’s because the combination of the British actress and post-World War II setting make the Marvel-branded vehicle, “Agent Carter,” considerable fun, and in some ways more promising than the series it’s replacing, the uneven “Agents of SHIELD.”
The San Francisco Chronicle praises the charismatic lead performance from Hayley Atwell, in addition to the performance of James D’Arcy as Edwin Jarvis. From SFGate.com:
Atwell is terrific in the title role, as capable in the efficient, unflappable skin of Peggy as she is when pretending to be a blond American floozy in a gin joint.
Starring: Hayley Atwell (Peggy Carter), James D’Arcy (Edwin Jarvis), Chad Michael Murray (Jack Thompson), Shea Whigham (Roger Dooley);
First Aired: Tuesday, January 6th, 2014
