Agent Carter Event Premiere Discussion [8:58]

Welcome to Peggy MotherBEEPing Carter!!!! Apparently Jarvis is just like a dog being taken for a car ride with his head out the window while Peggy is the one you ACTUALLY had her head out of the vehicle window…TWICE! 

 

And of course Haley points out that perhaps the single best moment of the premiere was lady things as Lauren regales us stories of crime scene amount of blood and her ability to smuggle contraband with tampons.  The obvious overt Mad Men style sexism just has to be brought up too. 

 

The fight choreography was some messed up stuff. Stapling. Flying pan. Just flat out brawling. And of course we have to compare her fighting to Black Widow and Agent May. 

 

The hosts try to figure out what Leviathan is but there’s not much to go on even for in depth comic fans at this point. But the best guess is that it is some early form or branch of Hydra based on the figure Leet Brannis was drawing in the roadside sand. 

 

It appears that Buzz McCallister from Home Alone (Devin Ratray) is still making a fool of himself by strapping a chair to himself and running around the neighborhood at night.

 

The radio show device was a fantastic way to narrate the episode and still keep Captain America in the series without Chris Evans. And to teach young people how to slap their meat. 

 

A 1940’s Stark car can totally outrun an explosion before it implodes. 

 

It takes guts to put a glowing Molecular Nitromene bomb in your purse – just like Starlord. Bathroom chemistry? It’s more than possible in the Marvel universe. And our girl Peggy Carter thinks so far ahead that she brings in bourbon ahead of time before she disarms the Molecular Nitromene just so she can take a drink after. 

 

Everyone agrees that ABC and Marvel got it right to premiere 2 hours of the event instead of just one because the first episode ended in such a weird place. And even though the second episode kept you hanging at least you were a little bit more prepared for the soft ending and continuing plot lines. 

 

The hosts debate on what Sousa actually is and bring up the theory that he might be the first Hydra mole. 

 

Peggy’s toolbox of gadgets is impressive too. From electric fence climbing gear to flashy guns, Peggy gets to take advantage of Strategic Scientific Reserve AND Howard Stark’s goodie closets. 

 

Magical car #2: None of the machine guns hit it. Because, you know, magnets.

 

What exactly is going on with Stark and Jarvis while they set Peggy up? 

 

This series is still in synch with the canon of the Carter One Shot. This series happens before the One Shot occurs. 

 

The use of Captain America footage was needed.

 

This took a traditionally male hero route.

 

The closet full of cosplay outfits was fun.

 

Jarvis’ snark was both welcome and needed.

 

Haley and Lauren give their take on an all girl dorm building like Agent Carter will be living in. Including the disgusting communal bath tub.

 

Everyone’s looking forward to the Shield – Hydra plot will come out plus any other secret organization. And everyone’s hoping for a great starting run just like the first six episodes of The Walking Dead. 

 

Howard Hughes’s fear water is also Howard Stark’s fear of water. And Howard Hughes’ warpness does in fact equal George Lucas’ warpness when he created Jar Jar. 

 

EXTRAS: Kyber crystals are now Star Wars canon. And Haley Atwell is an actual Disney princess

 

Stargate Pioneer can’t count up to 5 words.

 

How much can Guardians Of The Galaxy attribute it’s success to the Awesome Mix #1.

 

Lauren's Halloween costume next year will be Ewoking Dead, Copyright Legends Of Shield 2015

 

Lauren debuts her audition for a Luke Cage theme song.

 

Haley and The Operator will do a lot for a free t-shirt. The Operator will try to eat a Greek T-shirt on camera.

Dr. Gnome to you ‏@MrParacletes  Dec 24

@LegendsofSHIELD I loved the Planet X book too! Especially whekdjgn they had to rely on Nightcrawler with Data when the transporter goes down.
