‘Agent Carter’ Season 1 Recap, Episodes 1 & 2: ‘Now Is Not The End’/'Bridge & Tunnel’

Agent Carter, Marvel's second live action TV show set in its cinematic shared universe, made its debut with a two-hour double-bill on ABC on Tuesday night, with Hayley Atwell reprising her role as spy Peggy Carter. Atwell's Carter debuted in the 2011 movie Captain America: The First Avenger, based on a character created by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby, and she's now the second character from the movies to spin off into her own show, following Phil Coulson (Clark Gregg) in Agents of SHIELD.

Agents of SHIELD is now on its second season, and trying to recover its energy after a largely awful first season. Agent Carter will run for only eight episodes across seven weeks, rather than a standard 20+ episode season -- a format arguably closer to what Marvel plans to do with its Netflix TV shows -- so it may be the better test of Marvel's TV ambitions. In Cartergraphy, I'll be recapping the show every week using my new 'S.S.R.' method, breaking it down into Strategic Review, Scientific Analysis, and Reserved Englishness.

The Big and The Little Mix In Spencer And Rosanas’ “Ant-Man #1″ [Review]

This week sees Nick Spencer, Ramon Rosanas, Jordan Boyd and Travis Lanham launch a new book over at Marvel in the shape of Ant-Man. Featuring the Scott Lang version of the size-changing hero, the series is pitched as being about a C-List Avenger trying to turn around his post-Avengers career and get a new job, so he can provide for his daughter, Cassie. He has an upset ex-wife, a crappy apartment, a criminal past, and no hopes – and that's how the series begins.

With this first issue of the new series - which is on sale now - Spencer takes the jokey tone of his Superior Foes of Spider-Man series and downplays things significantly. While Foes was about villains trying to keep a criminal career going, here we have a hero trying to keep a heroic career going. Or, well, any career at all. It's a familiar concept for anybody reading Marvel at the moment, as most of their solo books are about the very same idea, played out in different ways.

Enquiring Minds: Your Best Moment [SURVEY]

This week is considered for a lot of us to be a return to "normal".  It's back to school, back to work, back from vacation, everything.  And for me, since the holidays were so crazy busy and full of people and food and stuff, I didn't get a chance to really sit back and think.

Jack’s Mid-Missouri Memory: Characters Make a Memory

In 2014 I lost two more people I grew up with in the 40’s and 50s. They were people I thought would live forever, but I guess that was because that is the way we think as kids. These two will join the others who made up my life back then, and now are no longer around

When Should You Stop Saying ‘Happy New Year?’

"Happy New Year." It’s the standard post-January 1 greeting, but at some point it becomes as out of date as shouting “Wazzzuuuuppp!” So, when should you abandon it?
