Review: Marvel's "Agent Carter" is Fantastic

Synopsis (ABC): It’s 1946, and peace has dealt Peggy Carter a serious blow as she finds herself marginalized when the men return home from fighting abroad. Working for the covert SSR (Strategic Scientific Reserve), Peggy must balance doing administrative work and going on secret missions for Howard Stark.

But the closer we got to Agent Carter, the more I was convinced that I should at least check it out. And I was more than pleasantly surprised.

Another thing it shows is that there needs to be a studio or agency that will handle films that otherwise wouldn’t get sold in the traditional Hollywood system so that new and important stories can finally get out of the script ghetto.  Enter Charles King and his new venture, MACRO.

"Sleepy Hollow" recap: "Paradise Lost"

Welcome back to the wild and zany world of Sleepy Hollow! I think the reviews on this particular episode, “Paradise Lost,” will be mixed, since on the one hand, we got a cool, no-nonsense angel character (who also wants to kill the entire world) and on the other hand, we got a lot of nonsense from Katrina, who doesn’t know how to be a human.
