Agent Carter season 2 news
- Category: Agent Carter
Kelsey MacNeal on ew.com:
After snagging a second season renewal, Agent Carter is leaving New York City behind.
In the wake of saving the world once again and letting go of her beloved Steve Rogers, SSR Agent Peggy Carter (Hayley Atwell) is moving to Los Angeles in season 2.
Here’s the description of the new season: “Dedicated to the fight against new atomic age threats in the wake of World War II, Peggy must now journey from New York City to Los Angeles for her most dangerous assignment yet. But even as she discovers new friends, a new home — and perhaps even a new love — she’s about to find out that the bright lights of the post-war Hollywood mask a more sinister threat to everyone she is sworn to protect.”
Hayley Atwell revealed that season 2 of Agent Carter will consist of 10 episodes, two more than season 1. We are sure that James will reprise his role as Jarvis, although it hasn't been officially confirmed yet.
Agent Carter "Snafu" (ep.7) clips
- Category: Agent Carter
Jose Molina (one of the AC writers) tweeted: #AgentCarter 107 - "SNAFU" - was written by @RealDingess, and gives us the biggest BOOM! of the season.
We can't wait! Here is the short trailer for episode 7 and a clip with Peggy and Jarvis:
Have you ever wondered what Edwin Jarvis tea would taste like? You can buy it here.
created by: Susanne Sholander
Proper, professional, and humble, Jarvis mixes the traditional flavor of earl grey with bright notes of lemon and the honeyed sweetness of chamomile, making him a reliable blend to have by your side. Best enjoyed before 9 o'clock.
Broadchurch finale tonight!
- Category: Broadchurch
We know completely NOTHING, null, zero about what will happen in tonight's Broadchurch filnale. So, before you find out if Joe Miller is guily or not guilty and who killed Pippa from Sandbrook, check out this funny article by Sarah Doran:
The Broadchurch Oscars - From Best Waterworks to the Ultimate Cliffhanger, we honour Broadchurch's most memorable performances
Male – David Tennant
They say a good actor can cry on demand but David Tennant takes instant waterworks to a whole new level by leaking buckets from up his sleeve...
Female – Olivia Colman
She's got the sleuthing and the sass down to a fine art but Olivia Colman's Ellie Miller has the crying game sewn up too.Nobody knows how to weep like this formidably feisty woman, who certainly won't call on anyone to comfort her in her hour of need.
Best Temper Tantrum
She began life as the meek and mild Claire, hiding out from her allegedly murderous man Lee Ashworth (James D’Arcy), but was soon tearing up the scenery – quite literally.The minute Alec Hardy told her he was washing his hands of her lying ways she lost the plot and totally trashed the kitchen – in style.
Best Smouldering Stare (giff above)
A decent staring-into-the-middle-distance face is clearly a prerequisite for any Broadchurch actor but being able to do it while upping the temperature on televisions across the nation is no mean feat.That's why James D'Arcy's Lee Ashworth gets a category and an award of his own. Who cares if he's guilty or not, the man really knows how to look down the lens of a camera.
Best Menacing Glare
Watch an old episode of Emmerdale or Birds of a Feather and you'll probably think Pauline Quirke is one of the funniest, friendliest women on TV – spend five seconds watching her play Broadchurch's Susan Wright and you'll see her in a totally different, really quite terrifying, light.
Claire Ripley and Lee Ashworth have quite the tumultuous relationship: if they're not at it, they're at each other's throats.There's nothing funny about domestic abuse but their fully charged fisticuffs amid the foaming waves deserve the nod for the best Broadchurch showdown. Even if Ellie Miller laying into her child-killer husband is up there too.

Want more Agent Carter? It's all down to you!
- Category: Agent Carter
An article from Agent Carter.net:
After this week’s action packed episode of Marvel’s Agent Carter it is hard to fathom that we have only 3 episodes (only 2 now) to go before the season is over. I want more. You want more. We all want more Agent Carter!
Guess what fans, it’s up to you to make it happen, don’t just sit back and hope for the best. While renewal chances are good, there’s never a guarantee so you need to do your part.
We asked Agent Carter Showrunner Tara Butters what fans can do. “Let ABC know you want more Agent Carter by catching up on your episodes,” she said, “Tell them you want more Agent Carter.”
Writer of this week’s episode Jose Molina chimed in too saying the fate of the show is in our hands when he tweeted:
@JoseMolinaTV: If you like #AgentCarter, PLEASE watch legally at http://abc.com or iTunes, etc. You decide the fate of the show. #RenewAgentCarter
Some people will try to tell you that ratings and key demos are all that matters and if you are not a Nielsen viewer tough luck because there’s nothing you can do but it’s not true. Not true at all. There’s plenty you can do to make sure Agent Carter returns for another season.
The simplest way to get your voice heard is to watch (and re-watch) the episodes online via legal options. The ABC website, ABC Watch app, Hulu, iTunes, Amazon, xbox, Google Play are all legal ways you can watch the show. Every week we update the Watch page here on AgentCarter.net with the latest links to make it easy for you.
Watching this way may not be included in the overnight/DVR viewing figures we see published every week but ABC and Marvel do keep track of these services and it is an important way for them to monitor their audience numbers. It also brings in money through direct sales and advertising so it does matter and with less and less people tuning in to watch live television in general every season, it matters more and more.
In addition to watching online please take just 2 minutes out of your day right now to give ABC some direct feedback, there are several ways you can do this and they are all quick and easy.
LEAVE ABC FEEDBACK BY PHONE
One of the most effective ways of having your voice heard is to pick up the phone and call ABC’s feedback line. You will have the opportunity to leave a 30 second message. There are several steps you will need to go through and to make it easier for you we’ve listed all the numbers you will need below so you don’t have to wait for the whole recorded message, just hit the next number when each message progresses. Think about what you’d like to say before you call. Tell them how much you enjoy the show and that you would like to see it renewed.
Dial the number 818-460-7477 (within the USA, add +1 at the beginning if dialing via an international cell phone) to get the “Audience information department”
Press 1 for “ABC television network”
Press 2 for “leave comment”
Press 2 for “prime time shows”
Enter 243 for “Marvel’s Agent Carter”
Leave your message up to 30 seconds long and then simply hang up.
SEND ABC AN EMAIL
You can email ABC programming feedback using the form on the following page. Tell them what it is about the show you enjoy and that you want to see the show renewed.
USE SOCIAL MEDIA
Make the most of social media. You can use Facebook, Twitter etc to be counted as a fan by ABC by “liking” the official Facebook page and following the Twitter account. Respond to their posts regularly. Tag your tweets with the official tag #AgentCarter during the episodes (both Eastern & Pacific regardless of where you live) and discuss the show with your friends.
I have to add that Agent Carter fans made "poor Jarvis" , "Peggy Carter", #AgentCarter and Dottie trending in the US and Canada. "Poor Jarvis" was trending worldwide Tuesday evening!
"Poor Jarvis" is trending worldwide pic.twitter.com/DVahNOR49I— Agent Carter News (@AgentCarterNews) February 11, 2015
The show's ratings aren't very good, unfortunately, but the critics love it. Agent Carter is 97% fresh on Rotten Tomatoes. And it's among top 10 TV shows mentioned at social media.
Plus, Jarvis is a fan favorite. Of course, we KNEW IT WILL BE SO from the beginning, but it's very very pleasant to read tweets ("love Jarvis") and see hundreds of gifs all over the social media!
What does Eve Myles think about James? Plus Broadchurch ep.7 questions
- Category: Broadchurch
Mary Comerford from TV Choice Magazine interviewed Eve Myles (Claire Ripley from Broadchurch) and asked her what was it like working with James D’Arcy:
Eve Myles: He’s not a bad looker is he? Apart from him being really quite beautiful, he’s an incredibly generous person so it’s been really hard work! When I was told who was going to play the role I Googled to find out all about him. You’re only as good as the person opposite you and we knew we had some fantastic stuff to do, we wanted to do it proud. I would say that 99 per cent of the scenes we worked out before turning up on set because rehearsal was very short.
Episode 7 of Broadchurch aired yesterday. The synopsis was quite enigmatic:A trap is set - but will it have the desired result? Paul Coates steps in to help a figure in distress, and in a turn of events she could never have foreseen, Ellie finds herself exposed and alone.
In Metro Ross McG asks still unanswered questions before the finale:
1. Will Joe be found guilty or not guilty?
That forewoman of the jury is obviously a big X Factor fan, revelling in every anguished moment as she waited and waited to deliver the verdict in Allegedly Killer Joe’s murder trial. And that wait will go on for another week.The jury has reached a majority verdict, so, as almost every character reminded us in this episode: ‘It could go either way’.
2. Who does Lee Ashworth have waiting for him in France?
In a not-so-subtle slice of seaside symbolism, Sandbrook chief suspects Claire Ripley (Eve Myles) and Lee Ashworth (James D’Arcy) took their turbulent relationship into the water at Broadchurch beach with a rather unsettling physical fight.They then agree to go their separate ways, and Claire asks one of those questions many stay-at-home British holidaymakers have pondered at one time or another: ‘What’s so great about France?’Lee replies that nobody there knows who he is… apart from one person. So who is it? The obvious candidate is Lisa Newbury, who disappeared when her little cousin was murdered at Sandbrook. Is she waiting for Lee in a nice chateau somewhere in the Loire?
3. What are Claire and Lee hiding?
During their farewell chat in front of the chalet where Claire has been sleeping since DI Alec Hardy (David Tennant) kicked her out of his safe house, she makes a pact with Lee to protect each other’s secrets.There’s a flashback to Lee looking into the mysterious incinerator at Thorp Agriservices – was he burning a body, or merely some evidence? Perhaps Claire and Lee aren’t protecting each other, but someone else. Why does Claire have the number for the office of grieving bluebell-lover Ricky Gillespie (Shaun Dooley)?Claire dodged Lee’s question about her earlier pregnancy by smacking him on the jaw, but was he going to be the father? It was Hardy who accompanied her to the clinic to get an abortion, but it seems too obvious that the detective was seeing her, even though this episode kicked off with a dreamy flashback of the two of them lying on a bed.When Lee found her on the beach, Claire was lying flat out with stones on her eyes – does that mean she is going to die in the final episode?
4. Just how much of the Sandbrook case did the police gloss over first time round?
It’s pretty obvious the parents of murdered Pippa Gillespie have a few secrets of their own, otherwise they would be seeking urgent action about how badly the case was handled.It’s slightly implausible that every week there is a new clue or witness in the Sandbrook case – just how shabby was the original investigation?Conveniently, Hardy and Ellie Miller (Olivia Colman) are working from a big dossier of evidence handed to them by Lee, who is, of course, a suspect. Not really great detective work, is it?

Broadchurch episode 6 - questions and theories
- Category: Broadchurch
Several interesting articles, reviews and recaps of episode 6 appeared today (spoilers!)
Radio Times by Ben Dowell:
Broadchurch drops another thrilling bombshell as the spotlight falls on Eve Myles’ Claire
Episode six powered through to another blood-pumping revelation: the discovery that it was Claire who stole the crucial pendant evidence which led to Lee’s iffy exoneration in the Sandbrook case.
She has been in the spotlight for a while now but matters came to a violent head even before the bombshell final montage that showed her breaking into Alec’s wife Tess’ car and stealing the piece of jewellery while Mrs H was getting frisky with a colleague.
What was Claire’s motive? The exact nature of her relationship with Tennant’s character has not been fully explained so she may have been wanting revenge on Alec’s philandering wife. But this seems unlikely. This armchair detective suspects that she was doing it for Lee, someone she clearly has a powerful and inexplicable bond with.
Back in the present, Alec has finally had enough of Claire's lies and washed his hands of her. She in turn tore up virtually every fixture and fitting in her safe house. She certainly has a temper, that one. There was more evidence that she is sexually imprisoned by Lee, responding to his violence with a come-on followed by some energetic against-the-wall bump and grind. We have rather got the message when it comes to deducing what makes these two tick rumpy-pumpy-wise. But is this a woman who could kill for kicks?
Things aren’t looking good for her but if there is a criticism of Chibnall's writing, it is obviously setting up one character’s apparent guilt too early on for them to actually be the perpetrator. Surely he must have a few more twists and turns in his locker.
The Telegraph by Benji Wilson
Broadchurch series 2 episode 6: what does the pendant tell us? This week's episode contained a revelation about a piece of key evidence - but what does this mean for the Sandbrook case?
Claire (Eve Myles) is now looking like the real wrong ‘un in Sand-church, as episode six’s big closing twist revealed that it was she who stole the pendant from Hardy’s wife’s car. That’s the same pendant that was found in Lee Ashworth’s car, and the same pendant that Miller spotted Claire wearing in a photo – it’s the Zelig of pendants.
As said pendant belonged to murder victim Pippa Gillespie, and was the crucial piece of evidence that made Hardy suspect Ashworth all along, and the disappearance led to the collapse of the original case, you could say that this is the rocket locket that holds the key to the entire Sandbrook mystery. We’ve certainly been encouraged to see it as such – Claire’s entire turnaround from browbeaten victim to most likely perpetrator has all hinged on this single piece of shonky neckwear.
If this seems like a major development we shouldn’t get ahead of ourselves - with two episodes to go Broadchurch’s writer Chris Chibnall is still asking as many questions as he answers. Later Ashworth said to Claire, “We had a plan”. Was nabbing the pendant part of that plan? Was the photo taken before or after she stole it from the car? Did Claire just like pendants? Was she an Accessorize junky?
Most of all, wacko psychic Steve Connelly (Will Mellor) cropped up in the trailer once again. Why might that be? Because in the first series he told Hardy he had a message from his spirit guide about… “the pendant”. It all leads to one further question – where is the pendant now? There’s plenty hanging on it.
Are Claire and Lee into some kinky stuff? A hideously stylised sex scene in Lee Ashworth’s stone-walled hilltop bothy suggested that, at the very least, they both like a bit of rough and tumble. There have been hints too that the Gillespies, their next-door neighbours in Sandbrook, may have been in to some similarly funny business.

Peggy's Betrayal Puts Jarvis In "Nightmare Situation"
- Category: Agent Carter
Hollywood Reporter published a new interview (by Aaron Couch) with James today:
'Agent Carter': Peggy's Betrayal Puts Jarvis in "Nightmare Situation". James D'Arcy also weighs in on if Howard Stark's butler could appear in future seasons: "There are so many permutations that could get them back together."
Jarvis (James D'Arcy) will have some major explaining to do on Tuesday's Agent Carter.
The loyal butler to Howard Stark (Dominic Cooper) betrayed Peggy (Hayley Atwell) in a big way last week, when he knowingly helped his boss manipulate her into stealing a vial of Captain America's (Chris Evans) blood. Howard had Peggy believe she was stealing a dangerous weapon, but his plan was to recover Cap's blood and use it to further medical research (and make a healthy profit, of course).
It was quite a blow to Peggy, who had a romantic relationship with Cap during World War II, and had grown to consider Jarvis a close confidant. D'Arcy says Jarvis is in a "nightmare situation" when the episode begins.
"He was definitely aware of Stark's plan. What he had not accounted for was he would suddenly discover loyalties in another direction," D'Arcy tells The Hollywood Reporter. "They meet up and have a blazing row."
Tuesday's episode is to feature a direct tie-in to 2011's Captain America: The First Avenger, which introduced Peggy Carter to the screen. The Howling Commandos are making an appearance, and while in the comics and in the film they were under the command of Captain America, this time Peggy will be taking the lead.
"Peggy gets her own operation and that's a big deal considering where we've come from," says D'Arcy. "Jarvis is slightly instrumental to that in the beginning, not perhaps in the most obvious ways, but he challenges her to really explore what she really wants."
Jarvis has become the surprise breakout character in Agent Carter, with the onscreen chemistry between D'Arcy and Atwell much talked about among fans of the show. Atwell and showrunners Michele Fazekas and Tara Butters have expressed hopes for future seasons to explore Peggy's adventures throughout different decades. What would that mean for Jarvis' role in these adventures?
The Iron Man films have already established that Jarvis remains with Howard Stark and ends up playing a role in little Tony Stark's (Robert Downey Jr.) upbringing, as Tony's A.I. is named after Jarvis. D'Arcy suggests that perhaps Jarvis could take a vacation to join Peggy on future adventures.
"I'm not sure if he can take a sabbatical, but there are so many permutations that could get them back together," says D'Arcy. "One of the things Marvel is really, really good at is managing to weave the various threads of their universe together without making too many jumps in logic, but also making it satisfying."
Episode 5 The Iron Ceiling:
Peggy is finally trusted with a mission and calls upon her trusted Howling Commandos squad for backup. But her cover could be at risk when SSR Chief Dooley also sends Agent Thompson with her.
Clips from the episode:
Broadchurch continues with ep. 6 tonight (9.02) on ITV, Agent Carter ep. 6 tomorrow on ABC (videos).

Broadchurch episode 6 synopsis:
Tom Miller takes the stand at the trial of his dad Joe and Claire Ripley starts to show her true colours.The unofficial Sandbrook investigation continues further but has it finally taken its toll on Alec Hardy?
We can see that something is really amiss with Claire in this short trailer:
Tomorrow we'll see episode 6 of Agent Carter: A Sin to Err:
Peggy discovers the shocking truth about Leviathan but doesn't realize that her true enemies are even closer than she imagined. Meanwhile, Souza is close to confirming the truth about Peggy and may just put her in the crosshairs of the SSR.

The trailer for Episode 4
Eric Goldman from IGN.com who (as we know from Twitter) is a fan of Agent Carter and Jarvis, talked to Agent Carter's showrunner Michele Fazekas:
IGN: James D’Arcy said an interesting thing about how now the show will kind of really begin anew moving forward.
Michele Fazekas: I think if you thought the show was going to be finding Howard Stark’s tech every week, we found them! We found it all [in the last episode] So now it’s like who was behind it and what is their real goal? So now we really get into it. The episode that airs in next, you find out what Howard Stark’s agenda is - Peggy finds out what it is. But it’s like, okay, we put that part aside. That’s only a symptom of a larger problem.
IGN: Is it really gratifying for you guys to see how well people have responded to the Peggy and Jarvis partnership?
Fazekas: Yeah, because we love it too. You always hope that that’ll happen and their chemistry together is so lovely. I was shocked to hear him [James D’Arcy] say he’s never done any comedy before, because he’s so funny. And even lines that aren’t written as comedy lines, he makes them funny. The crew is constantly like biting their hands to not start laughing because he’s just so naturally funny. They have a lovely chemistry. It actually influenced how we wrote the show. We said let’s put them together as much as we can. They really become a team. But when Peggy finds out Howard’s agenda, she also knows that Jarvis knows that. So it’s a double betrayal for her.
