2. Agent Carter
All episodes of Marvel’s Agent Carter have exploded onto Showmax this week, so you can start bingeing on Seasons 1 and 2 with immediate effect. In the eight-episode ass-kicking extravaganza that is Season 1 of Marvel’s Agent Carter, Peggy is assisted by Stark’s butler Jarvis in finding those responsible for framing him and supplying deadly weapons to America’s enemies. She overcomes everyone’s assumptions about her while making the bad guys pay. In her red lipstick and pencil skirt and earrings, Peggy looks like any other secretary – until she unleashes the force of her wit and fists.
In Season 2, Agent Carter moves to Hollywood after World War II to keep the threats of the new Atomic Age in hand. She comes up against Whitney Frost, a ferociously clever actress and scientist who has been experimenting with Darkforce, or Zero Matter, the most powerful and unstable form of energy the world has ever known, which Whitney has managed to absorb. Will Agent Carter prevent Whitney from using her powers to take over the influential Council of Nine?
