‘Agent Carter’ Season 1 Recap, Episode 8: ‘Valediction’

CA_AgentCarter1-8

The end has come upon us. The eighth and final episode of Agent Carter has aired, and a show that was perhaps too beautiful for this world may have seen its last over-the-shoulder goon-toss with a finale that brought Peggy's war against Leviathan to an at times thrilling, and at times perhaps too-familiar conclusion --- featuring Dottie, Faustus, Jarvis, Howard, and all the gang. (Except Dooley. Sorry, Dooley.)

Episode 8, 'Valediction,' was directed by Christopher Misiano and written by Michele Fazekas and Tara Butters. Was it a fitting end to the show, and is it really the end?

The Batman ’66 Episode Guide 1×14: ‘Batman Stands Pat’

Batman 1x14: Batman Stands Pat

The 1966 Batman television show was one of the most successful and influential adaptations of comic books to mass media of all time. Over the course of three seasons and 120 episodes, the series became a cultural force with its unique combination of tongue-in-cheek humor, thrilling superhero adventure and celebrity guest stars, and shaped the way the public would view the Caped Crusader for the next five decades. Now, in the midst of a well-deserved renaissance of the show, ComicsAlliance is proud to present The Batman '66 Episode Guide, an in-depth examination of every single adventure, arch-criminal and deathtrap cliffhanger of the series.

This week, the Mad Hatter launches his final plan to steal his 13th Hat... the Batman's cowl!

‘Agent Carter’ Season 1 Recap, Episode 7: ‘Snafu’

CA_AgentCarter1-7

In last week's recap of Agent Carter I posited that this penultimate episode would see the cast largely confined to the SSR offices, which seems rather less interesting than seeing a rogue Peggy kicking ass at-large on the streets of 1940s New York City. And lo, the prophecy came to pass, with Peggy almost entirely sidelined in her own show, and no-one really stepping up to fill the void.

As a result, episode 7, "Snafu," directed by Vincent Misiano and written by Chris Dingess, was a bit of a disappointment --- though it did offer some top quality Dottie (Bridget Regan), an actual super-villain, and a very welcome character development for Chief Dooley (Shea Whigham).

‘Agent Carter’ Season 1 Recap, Episode 6: ‘A Sin To Err’

CA_AgentCarter1-6

Agent Carter heads towards its end game with its sixth episode, 'A Sin To Err', directed by Stephen Williams and written by Lindsey Allen. The sad news is that it may be a permanent end, as the show hasn't been delivering ratings that would guarantee a second season -- but I'm not ready to rule it out. I'm hoping DVR numbers will save it.

The good news is, with a tight eight episodes, the show is clearly structured as a self-contained story, and assuming a strong ending, this one season will endure as a solid installment in the Marvel canon. I think the Agent Carter model is a much stronger one for future Marvel TV shows on ABC -- the Netflix model on network, in essence -- than the meandering anticlimactic flab of Agents of SHIELD. Which is a show I don't want to have to think about yet. So let's talk about Agent Carter!
