Agent Carter is focused, fun and thrilling on a constant basis, and only slightly silly, as opposed to Agents of Shield, which is monumentally silly and varies quite a lot in quality. A second season has been confirmed and that is great news indeed.
Season 2 Update - March 2016Season 2 keeps the quality high and injects a lot more humor into the proceedings, resulting in some incredibly funny moments between Hayley Atwell and James D’Arcy. Their chemistry is clearly a highlight of the show.
The story is injected with a dose of silliness, which increases as the season reaches its end. It is as if the show has been told to keep to a certain template, which doesn't let it stray too far from what should be expected and this keeps it from going all in. The show works best when it surprises and doesn't take itself too serious. Fortunately this happens often.
Overall this is a great series, enjoyable and entertaining, just make sure to cut is some slack on occasion as it hasn't quite reached its potential yet.
