This show is never going to be on Netflix, is it?

You're referring to the Jarvises, no? I felt like the showrunners were trying to suggest that Ana feels utterly safe with Peggy around her husband, that the banter and repartee is innocuous and nothing more. It'd be interesting if the show veers any more in this direction, but it seems beyond the show's agenda currently.

Anyway. I liked it throughout. Good set-up of multiple angles, from Sousa getting a belle to the Ana introduction. It remains a wonderfully fun show.

Yeah. Obviously I don't think they're actually doing that, but her living with them could lead to more of those kinds of risque scenes. I like.

So... Dr. Wilkes isn't actually dead, right? If it's anything like past Marvel shows, he's probably mutated into a Zero Matter monster/baddie.

So happy this show is back. I love the setting. Occult Hollywood gets my goat.

I wasn't convinced Ana existed before this season. But she's great. Her dynamic clicked right in with Jarvis and Peggy.

She's wonderful in Outlander.

I entirely didn't recognize her until The AV Club mentioned it. A very different look for her! She was great on that.

Roommate: Who is that?

Me: Jarvis.

When Enver started singing and dancing my face did literally this:

...which I didn't think was a thing that a face could actually do in real life? And yet.

This has been a pretty disappointing season. The cast charms, but the story was all over the place, and had none of the sense of purpose that S1 did. There was a clear character arc then, with Peggy's grief over Steve. This season's kind of a run of the mill TV adventure, like a Season 1 Agents of Shield episode stretched to 10.

Also, that ending is meant to be shocking, but all I could think of was, "Yay, now he's free for the Gilmore Girls revival."

Yeah, I generally agree with you, 8. The bits where Dottie showed up had a liveliness and propulsive force that allowed Regan and Atwell to renew their sparring, physically and verbally. The villains here in season 2, while interesting in a generic way, lack that bitter camaraderie; as a result, the finale doubled down on character since it seemed to recognize that it couldn't match Dottie physically.

And while it was cute that Agent Carter ended up with Enver, it renders a lot of the dramatic material with Dr. Wilkes moot in a dismissive way.

It's unfortunate since I liked how Carter, the Jarvises, and Dottie all interact, but I'm reconciled to the fact that the show's finished with this season despite the cliffhanger.

Plenty of charm and style; low on substance. I didn't dislike it, but I agree it could have been better.

I liked it overall, but I agree with the criticisms.

It is exactly that. Charming. My brother and i can't get enough of D'Arcy's Jarvis. He's hysterical! Anyway, 4 more episodes to go.

If only more of this show had the seriousness and small-scale drama of that one scene where Jarvis is sitting at his wife's bed imploring her back into consciousness.

Seemed like a whole other show suddenly. Gamma rays? Zero Matter? Uranium? Enough of that bollocks, we've got real world shit going on here!:)

D'Arcy did some great acting there even if his sudden and relentless urge to seek vengeance afterwards seemed, well, not entirely him.

Dissapointing final 2 episodes. That whole musical number was fucking awful. Do we really need to be reminded this thing's set in the 40's when the production design is already getting that point across just fine? Get on with the story ferchrisakes.

I'm hearing a lot of of talk about lack of stakes in Civil War, but boy this show really fizzles out big time. Perhaps it's best it went away.

Ok. Episode 3 and 4. This show has already jumped the shark. Now I understand why it was canceled.

How can Season 1 be so good and this season be so bad? I barely want to finish. But I will. For Steve.

Finished. It was a struggle. Wish they took on a smaller threat.
