I'm so happy AGENT CARTER came back for a second season and I really hope it's back for a third. I LOVE this show. Love the time period, love the twists, love the characters, but mostly I love Peggy Carter. She's such an amazing character. I love how not only is she strong and smart, but she still retains characteristics that make women women. As much as I love a kick-butt girl, it saddens me when they're always snarky/mean, or when they never show emotion or have tender moments or can't like a guy because OH NO NOW SHE'S SACRIFICING HER STRENGTH FOR A GUY. No. She likes a guy. She's still strong. The end. For me, all this doesn't take away from a female character, it only adds. It makes them real and believable and layered.
I also love how Peggy isn't the only powerhouse female on this show. Dottie is back in the second season, and the antagonist is a super genius woman who tells the dudes where to go and how to get there. (Although, sort of going against what I said above, I don't get why she married the politician... not sure about the motivation behind that.)
It's not just the women that make this show great though. Jarvis is charmingly dorky as usual (loved the line about not wanting to be a disembodied voice forever *snort*), and I completely heart Agent Sousa. I've got two episodes left but I really hope those two get together already.
Anyway, AGENT CARTER is an awesome show. Give it a try if you haven't yet.
