Agent Carter Returns!
Season 2 of Agent Carter starts tonight on television, YAY! Is anyone else a Peggy Carter fan?
For those of you not in the know, Peggy Carter is the British military intelligence officer who was Captain America's true love in World War II. Hayley Atwell did a magnificent job of portraying her in the movie Captain America: The First Avenger.
Peggy Carter is such a marvelous kick-ass female action star that Marvel decided to create a TV show around her. After the war (and Steve Rogers' apparent death), Agent Carter moves to New York to work in the Strategic Scientific Reserve spy agency. She must battle both the bad guys and her own colleagues' sexist undervaluing of her skills and abilities. What woman can't identify with that?
In Season 2, she is going to be transferred to Los Angeles to live and work. California in the late 1940s -- now that should be fun! And apparently she will have a love interest this season too.
[P.S. And speaking of kick-ass female action stars, Leanna of Can We Have a New Witch, Ours Melted says to let all her fans know she'll be back raising hell in the blogosphere next Monday! Glad you're feeling better, girl!]
