‘Agent Carter’ Season 1 Recap, Episode 3: ‘Time And Tide’

CA_AgentCarter1-3

We're onto the third of eight episodes of Agent Carter, and I already know it's not going to be enough. It's not going to be enough of Hayley Atwell's awesome Peggy Carter. It's not going to be enough time in her world. It's not going to be a long enough break from... that other show. And honestly, it may not be enough time for the rest of the show to come up to the level of its star; it's a very good show, but Atwell is great. I want to spend twenty episodes with this show to see if it can raise its game to match her performance.
Episode three, 'Time And Tide,' is directed by Scott Winant and written by Andy Bushnell. Opening with a breathy Peggy recap of the first two episodes, it picks up the threads of that two-parter. In fact, at this point it's clear that this story may be an eight-parter; not a procedural with an arc, but a long-form story divided into eight chapters.

Is Dreamboat Actor Steven R. McQueen Playing Nightwing In ‘Titans’?

stevenrmcqueen2

Pretty actor/model/actor-model Steven R. McQueen has departed his role in the TV show The Vampire Diaries, where he played "pretty fella who never does anything but his sister his really into vampires," in order to... well, no-one knows what he plans to do next. But the actor has long been lobbying for the chance to bring the DC superhero Nightwing to the screen, and with a Nightwing-based Titans TV show in development at TNT, it seems likely that McQueen has landed his dream role.

Speaking to The Hollywood Reporter, Vampire Diaries executive producer Julie Plec pointedly noted that McQueen would be welcome to return to the show, "unless he finally gets his wish to play a superhero and he’s unavailable." As hints go, that seems like a heavy one. But is McQueen the right heartthrob to play comics' premiere hunk?

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

CA_AgentCarter1-1-1-2

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.
