Girls With Guns

Hayley Atwell as Agent Carter

At last! I've sat through several of the recent Marvel movies (Iron Man, Iron Man 2, Avengers Assemble, The Incredible Hulk films, Thor and both Captain America films which first featured Atwell) and aside from the first Iron Man movie they've all left me cold. Finally, thanks to the TV series Marvel's Agent Carter I have an interest in this franchise!

The show made its UK debut on the cable channel Fox last week and I just loved its tone, the post war era it is set in, the feminist stance it takes, that distinctive whiff of The (real) Avengers about it, ie Mrs Peel and the wonderful playing of Hayley Atwell in the lead role.
