My Hulu trial will end before I can get to season 2, but I liked 1 enough that I'll probably just blind-buy the whole thing on disc.Thief wrote:
I, like you, enjoyed the character so much in The First Avenger that thought about jumping into the show. Still haven't but I've been seriously considering it. Might also jump into Agents of SHIELD.
Lots of fun callbacks to the movies, including one cameo that I didn't expect. There's a character that was trained at the same Russian facility that would later train the future Black Widow, and she was fun. I especially liked the shot of her parkour-ing down 6 flights of stairs.
But mostly I just liked the old-fashioned tone of it all. I'd compare it to a Lois Lane-without-Superman kind of vibe. Also refreshing is the lack of a love interest. Her two main allies are the prim (and married) Jarvis, and Howard Stark, whose womanizing repulses her. I wouldn't be surprised if Stark & Carter became a thing in S2, but I was relieved that they didn't go there.
