Ranking the Marvel Cinematic Universe

It is a peak time to be a Marvel fan right now. Avengers: Age of Ultron is coming close to finally opening. Agent Carter was an awesome miniseries, and Daredevil is blowing up social media. I figured I would countdown all of the Marvel Cinematic Universe properties, including both the television and movie properties. However, this list only includes the actual MCU, not just Marvel characters or teams, which means no X-Men or Spiderman.  Read More Ranking the Marvel Cinematic Universe

New Show Recap: Marvel’s Agent Carter 1×08, “Valediction”

Well, that was a great way to end the first season. Holy cow. Everything that happened in this episode was definitely telegraphed in all the preceding episodes. I appreciated this finale because it gave me all the feels. Seriously, this show needs to stop pulling on my heart strings; they were already so thin from the Parks and Recreation finale. Read More New Show Recap: Marvel’s Agent Carter 1×08, “Valediction”

New Show Recap: Marvel’s Agent Carter 1×07, “Snafu”

The penultimate episode of Agent Carter was outstanding. The writers have been building a great series and it all came to a head in episode 7. Peggy vs SSR, SSR vs. Leviathan, Dottie vs. America — all of our favorite matchups were there.  Read More New Show Recap: Marvel’s Agent Carter 1×07, “Snafu”

New Show Recap: Marvel’s Agent Carter 1×05, “The Iron Ceiling”

New Show Recap: Agent Carter, 01×04, “The Blitzkrieg Button”

I cannot believe we are already halfway through the first season of Agent Carter. I really like the miniseries or British TV series feel of only doing eight-episode seasons. It keeps the characters fresh without bogging them down in repetitive monster-of-the-week episodes. A lot of major television shows could benefit from doing 13-episode seasons instead of the standard American full season of 22.  Read More New Show Recap: Agent Carter, 01×04, “The Blitzkrieg Button”

New Show Recap: Agent Carter 1×03, “Time and Tide”

Continuing the fast pace of last week’s two-hour premiere, Agent Carter continues to kick ass, take names, and look fucking gorgeous. Read More New Show Recap: Agent Carter 1×03, “Time and Tide”

New Show Recap: Agent Carter 1×01, “Pilot” and 1×02, “Bridge and Tunnel”

HOLY.CRAP. Agent Carter is amazing. In some ways, it’s exactly the feminist Marvel story we’ve been craving. Firstly, Peggy actually talks to women about things other than boys. I realize this is a low bar to set, but there’s also a lot of her showing up the men by kicking more butt than any of them.  Read More New Show Recap: Agent Carter 1×01, “Pilot” and 1×02, “Bridge and Tunnel”
