    I watched it last night and have some observations: Spoilers will be obstructed as needed.

    First of all, what worked:
    Jarvis - I think the guy that plays Jarvis is a cool cat, and that weird kind of sexual tension between him and Haylee Atwell's character is a little interesting, it's going to be fun to find out what he's up to.
    Haylee Atwell - She's incredibly good looking and full bodied. Love that in a woman and It's a breath of fresh air to not have a lead on a show that looks like a fucking hat rack. She seems well to the task of making the action scenes believable, so there's that.
    The Villains/Opposing Guys in this episode - The not being able to speak thing and the self typing typewriter were actually pretty cool gimmicks and actually way more interesting than any gimmick agent Carter or the SLS had.
    Bubbles from the wire - Anytime I see a Wire alumnus I get excited
    too bad he already got kilt

    What was just kind of there for me:
    The action scenes - Yeah, the fighting? I know it's TV, but to me, the action wasn't up to par. Fistfighting when you have a gun? Dunno

    What bugged me:
    Period Piece with the time periods all dorked up - First of all, a Telephone on every desk in the 1940's? Really? Even in a government office, there would have been 1 phone for everyone. Cars that didn't match the period, actually a ton of things messed up here.
    Falling all over themselves about how women were treated bad in the workplace in that era - Look, my grandmother was in the workforce in the 40's and 50's and I know that shit sucked, but that was just the way it was, noone made stinkfaces when women were relegated to being secretaries because that's the way it was. Having Agent Carter or other women make faces when men said intemporate shit just didn't happen in those days. It was WAAAAAAAAY to prominent in this show for me not to say anything about it.

    Already with the foreshadowing of there being a mole or moles in SLS - Really? it's obvious the chump with the limp is a bad guy, without even showing anything. I'm not even going to spoilerize that. Shit.

    Anyway, so the show wasn't half bad, I would compare it favorably with the first 8 eps of SHIELD, but honestly, if they push the feminism shit too much, I might have to bail.
    I give it 3/5 stars.
    What do you guys got?

    i only watched the first one, will watch the second on e tonight, but i feel like the tone is not great.

    i was hoping for something like the first five minutes of the AoS episode when they had her with the howling commandos.

    the idea that all the other agents see her as a secretary isn't working for me.

    Haven't seen it. The only important question is how she's dressed and how revealingly. I can't expect much superheroics, and I'm a feminist already, so the only reason to watch is if there's eye candy?

    enjoyed the show but didn't realize it was the same woman from the movies. She appeared much hotter in Captain America movies.

    I think some of the stuff you don't like is because the directors are trying to exaggerate things to make if like a comic book. No it doesn't have the "Blam" or "Pow" you saw in the old Batman tv show but it is a similar mechanism to show you are not in the world of reality

    She is just spectacular. Like a good looking version of Hilary Swank, and with even bigger boobies. But no one answered my question.
