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.

My opinions: When I first heard that Agent Carter was coming on the scene, I was actually apprehensive. The only Marvel show on ABC at the time, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., was a show I just couldn’t get into, especially since a large amount of it seemed like fanservice. 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.

"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.

We’re back in the world of Downton Abbey! Yay and ugh.

Anyways, let’s get into it, in bulleted form, because paragraphs are too taxing for me when talking about this show.
