Channel 4, which shows Agents of Shield, would be the logical channel to broadcast it. Personally I'd like to see it on the BBC, because then it'd be advert-free. It'd slot quite nicely into Saturday evenings – it's not as though they're overburdened with SF/fantasy programmes, despite all the Who-ha every time the Doctor pops up again.
Ahem! Back to Agent Carter. If you're not into comic book things, you're probably horribly confused. Here's what you need to know:
The titular Agent Carter is female – you might remember her from Captain America: The First Avenger.
The show is set in the 1940s.
And the costumes are just gooooorgeous. I'd watch it for those alone. ABC, which makes the show, has recognised this and has dedicated a page on its website to the fashions of Agent Carter, with input from the costume designer Giovanna Ottobre-Melton. It's really interesting, as she is very serious about accuracy, and does use some authentic vintage garments, but the action-packed nature of the storylines mean a lot of the costumes have to be made from scratch as they need multiple copies of each piece. Let's face it, no-one needs an armpit tear during filming! It's fascinating seeing and reading about her fabric and style choices.
|The red, white and blue costuming is a deliberate choice|
Agent Carter, if you can reboot vintage fashion, you really will be my superhero!
