Agent Carter 2×08 and 2×09 Debriefing: The (Zero Matter) Force Awakens, or, this is why you should always do as Peggy says.

Apologies for the delay in posting, folks. Better late than never?

I may have taken a break from writing about Agent Carter over the last few weeks, but that doesn’t mean our intrepid heroine has taken time off from taking down criminal masterminds.

Whitney Frost (Wynn Everett) has unleashed her true megalomaniacal self upon the world, and has taken Dottie Underwood (Bridget Regan) along for the ride, while poor Jason Wilkes (Reggie Austin) struggles just to stay whole, metaphorically and physically. But Peggy (Hayley Atwell) has more pressing matters: as if evil superpowers and love triangles weren’t enough to fill her plate, poor Ana (Lotte Verbeek) has gotten caught in the crossfire, and a gunshot wound to the abdomen at Frost’s hands leaves her life hanging in the balance. Jarvis (James D’Arcy) is inconsolable, and standing by her friend is of the utmost concern at this trying time. Can’t these guys ever catch a break?

When she isn’t watching whichever show is currently capturing her heart, she is writing about how said show is currently capturing her heart. She loves pie.

SLEEPY HOLLOW: Ichabod Crane vs. the 21st Century, 11/10/14

If you thought an episode of Sleepy Hollow where Ichabod would get sucked into binge-watching reality TV, then have to accompany rival Hawley into a nightclub to track down a succubus would be rife with memorable moments, you’d be right!

Behold tonight’s chuckles from “Heartless”:

  1. Ichabod and Katrina gettting sucked intoThe Bachelor. “This is shameless groundling kabuki!”
  2. … But Katrina doth think Ichabod protest too much: “Is there more television of reality than this program?” (Loved Abbie’s retort: “As much as I would love to introduce you to the housewives and duck dynasties, we’ve got work to do.” Just wait until Katrina finds Netflix!)
  3. Ichabod vs. nightclubs — no matter the century: “Private dancing societies, provocative though they were, were not uncommon in my era. Though Katrina and I were not fixtures of the scene.” (I’d love to see him try to Viennese waltz at a club, though!)
  4. Ichabod is a big fan of aspirin: “The modern world has a vast amount of remedies and tonics. Some of which are chewable!”
  5. Ichabod’s surprisingly down with “getting lucky,” in the vernacular: “A. Macking. He was macking on a lady. Amber said the same thing about Marco [on The Bachelor].”
  6. Ichabod is a surprising wingman (re: Hawley): “He’s a brigand and a mercenary, but not without his charms.”
  7. Ichabod is down with the traditions of St. Valentine, but Abbie isn’t: “Now single people everywhere have to drown their sorrows in tubs of Rocky Road.”
  8. Everyone’s a critic, especially if they’ve been in limbo for 300 years: “Is this music for attacking the wall of Jericho?”
  9. Take Two: “Are the incessantly flashing lights why nobody seems to be able to find their dance partner?”

What were your favorite scenes tonight?
