So even after all this time, I have yet to watch season 2 of Agent Carter. I hear a lot of, umm, complaints about it and it kind of makes me want to just pretend it exists and read my steggy fanfic lol could you maybe give me the bullet points of the season that could summarize why it was so terrible? I don't have much free time so I'd rather not waste it on something I'll be sorely disappointed with.
Bullet points, okay, I’ll try my best!
moving the show to another city
the change of tone
Peggy was written out of character
two phoned in love triangles
no Angie / wasted Angie cameo
it’s like Steve had never existed
Jarvis the bumbling comic relief
way too few female characters
way too little female interaction / the season BARELY passed the Bechdel test
a female character was treated as a hurdle to overcome and then never seen again
we have no idea what happened to Dottie at the end
WAY too many fedoras
only one black character who even turned on the heroine and went nowhere
the issue of racism was barely touched
a generic and bad backstory for Peggy that focused too much on how men influenced her life instead of focussing on how she grew as a person, and that forgot that CA:TFA existed
the heroine is forced into a relationship with a pretty white Nice Guy who has no problem with slut-shaming and fat-shaming, who treated her badly in the past and keeps treating her badly in the present
a man not taking no for an answer being portrayed as romantic (IT’S NOT!!! IT’S CREEPY!!!)
ended on a cliffhanger we’ll probably never get a solution for
wasted potential (we expected more from Peggy’s backstory, we would have loved to see Peggy founding S.H.I.E.L.D., we would have loved to see more of the Howlies, we would have loved to see Peggy kicking more ass)
wasted screentime (we could have gotten character development instead of love triangles, Jarvis running after a flamingo or a musical number about who Peggy should bone)
too much focus on the male characters (e.g. we only get to see how Jarvis handles Ana’s injury but we never see how Ana copes with it)
at the very end, it wasn’t even Peggy who saved the day!!!
Fuck the second season! No wonder the show got cancelled!
SO SORRY MAN I WAS SO HUNGRY AT THE MORNING AND LOOK ME NOW IN NEED OF SLEEP WHILE LISTENING TO THE SERMONS OF MIIKO FIGHT AGAINST WITH NEVRA AND EVEN TO ADD LACK OF TALKING SIMPLE OF VALKYON SO THAT MY FAMILY WILL GO WITHOUT ENERGY what do you expect what it is you want from me, WHY!11
