The Blot can’t believe Marvel’s Agent Carter finally premieres tomorrow! I feel like we’ve been talking about this show for years. While I’m excited to watch it, I don’t see it doing very well ratings wise. I mean it’s not like Agents of SHIELD is doing amazing, and Agent Carter is only going to pull in a fraction of SHIELD’s viewers. I just don’t see a period piece starring a character most of America has never heard of (even if they’ve seen Captain America: The First Avenger) and featuring no mainstream super heroes doing well. Plus the marketing for this new show has been terrible! Seriously, who gave the ok for the Agent Carter television poster above that looks like something PBS created for the Where in the World Is Carmen Sandiego? children’s game show? Like with most comic book inspired television shows, The Blot’s taking a “hope for the best, but expect the worst” approach to Agent Carter.
Agent Carter stars Hayley Atwell as Peggy Carter, James D’Arcy as Edwin Jarvis, Chad Michael Murray as Jack Thompson, Enver Gjokaj as Daniel Sousa and Shea Whigham as Roger Dooley. Agent Carter kicks things off with a 2 hour series premiere tomorrow, Tuesday, January 5th, on ABC at 8/7c.
