Trivia

The writers originally wanted to call the Zero Matter 'Element Zero', but consultant and physicist Clifford V. Johnson quickly pointed out to them that there actually is a substance named element 0: neutronium. See more »

Goofs

In 1947, a year when even the Armed Forces were still segregated, it is highly unlikely that an African-American scientist would be working for the government. And it's well nigh impossible that he would try to date a white woman; even in California, miscegenation and interracial marriage were still illegal at that time. See more »

"Bigger than you think"
21 January 2016 | by ThomasDrufkeSee all my reviews

I'd like to think that Agent Carter is the most unique comic book show out there. First of all it's a period piece. It's a comic show centered on a female character (which we just don't get in film or TV far too often), and lastly, there isn't any superheroes dropping by to save the day. Its uniqueness has always been a strong point but I think this episode veered perhaps too far into clichéd superhero moments, or even just romantic clichés in general.

As I said before, there's no need to give Peggy a love interest right now, but I think the show runners are going forth with it no matter what. This episode clearly focused on that void in Peggy's life of not having someone when everyone around her seemingly already does. I enjoyed her dynamic with Wilkes, though I guess that maybe over now. And the whole 'will Sousa marry his wife even though he clearly still has some feelings for Peggy?' got a bit tiresome. I'm all for the Sousa/Peggy relationship, just don't take it into an overdone and overly dramatic area where most TV shows and films do.

This episode also gave us a closer look into the Isodyne incidents and how it was a part of an atomic anomaly during testing years back. I love that there is still tons of mystery surrounding the entire story line, much like last year with Leviathan, but we do have a good look at the two women who will be the (sort of) new baddies for Peggy to take down. We didn't see Dottie, but we got a good look at Frost, who is quite clearly in charge when it comes to her and her husband. It was also interesting to hear Wilkes talk about how these experiments may cross other dimensions that she or anyone is unfamiliar with. Could this be where those rumored Doctor Strange tie-ins happen?

So in all, this episode had a much goofier and light-hearted tone filled with romantic moments, some good some bad. I did enjoy the time we spent with the Jarvis', even if the screwball comedy at times is a little off.

+Peggy handles herself just fine with or without any guy

+Jarvis humor

+Dottie & Frost
