AGENT CARTER Dims the Lights—For Now

Episode 10 of Agent Carter is absolutely brilliant. My only complaint is that we did not see the return of that Pink Devil. But Stark did go for a swim in the nude, so I suppose the devil you know and all that. “Hollywood Ending” begins with a horror movie-esque Whitney monstrously chasing after Peggy […]

AGENT CARTER Dazzles in L.A.

The double-header premiere of Agent Carter’s season two (“The Lady in the Lake” and “A View in the Dark”) starts off with action, misdirection, wit, and a smashing hat. Peggy (played by the charming Hayley Atwell) captures Dottie Underwood (Bridget Regan), who was wearing an approximation of Peggy’s trademark red hat. Dottie was in the […]
