As someone who doesn’t watch Agents of SHIELD, hasn’t seen either Thor movie, and saw Captain America 2 on a plane — meaning, Marvel is not a priority — I was surprised at how enjoyable Agent Carter is. It helps that she has a Sydney Bristow streak to her (capable, smart, wry, handy with a wig) and that Hayley Atwell is SUPER charming. So even when my eyes glaze over a bit at Shadowy Villainous Organizations and/or People, and technology that sounds like a juice cleanse you buy off the TV (“Vita Radiation”), there’s a lot to like.

But: This is going to forego plot for the most part, in favor of JUST checking out the visuals: costumes, lipstick, Chad Michael Murray’s level of squintitude in his return to TV… you know, the important stuff.
