Agent Carter is off to a good start

6.86 Million Viewers
In an age of splintered viewership the show is off an running.

Agent Carter (Hayley Atwell) brings a much needed sex appeal to the testosterone infused world of superheroes. 

A character does not need special powers to be a comic hero or villain.  Lex Luthor, Batman and the Black Widow prove that.

Agent Carter, it's a year after the end of World War II, and Peggy Carter is frustrated and bored, because her sexist male colleagues at the S.S.R. keep her from field work and force her to do all the filing.

The show is a fun mix of a war between the sexes, spies, super villain sci technology and action.  It will take time to develop characters and plot lines.  But so far so good.

For the 2 hour premier I rate it a:  7 out of 10

Hayley Atwell
An actress of enormous talent.
