“My name is Sydney Bristow. Seven years ago I was recruited by a secret branch of the CIA called SD-6. I was sworn to secrecy, but I couldn’t keep it from my fiancé. And when the head of SD-6 found out, he had him killed. That’s when I learned the truth: SD-6 is not part of the CIA. I’ve been working for the very people I thought I was fighting against. So, I went to the only place that could help me take them down. Now I’m a double agent for the CIA, where my handler is a man named Michael Vaughn. Only one other person knows the truth about what I do, another double agent inside SD-6. Someone I hardly know - my father.”

i’ve seen people saying that agent carter is like alias in the 40s and i’m not only not going to object, but will actually point out why fans of one should check out the other, or just you know why people in general should check out both

  • kickass spy ladies in the lead
  • who are spying inside their own spy organization
  • always in the danger of being found out but also feeling a tad guilty because not everyone they’re lying to is a terrible person
  • a cute male sidekick they can talk to and rely on but who obviously can’t kick as much ass as our hero
  • and with whom they have secret meetings in public places
  • having a completely inconspicuous cover job
  • and a ‘normal life’ with friends who have no idea what they do for a living whatsoever
  • except there’s a tragic death in the pilot that destroys that delusion of keeping the two lives separate
  • also both character’s significant other die in the beginning (kinda) so that’s a bummer
  • there’s some strong sci-fi element and it’s part of the main plot
  • undercover missions
  • wigs and costumes and OMG JUST UNDERCOVER
  • CLASSIC SPY GADGETS
  • both ladies are intelligent and resourceful as fuck

now, also if you’re watching agent carter there’s an added bonus of IT’S THE 40S AND PEGGY IS DESTROYING MISOGYNY, but alias has its own perks too, like TOTALLY FUCKED-UP FAMILY DYNAMICS AND TONS OF LOCATIONS, so the conclusion is that both are amazing and you need to get on with them
