9In fact, it's not like anything else on TV
Even beyond the world of superheroes, Agent Carter takes risks. It resists an episodic format, instead focusing on a developing story arc that spans the entirety of each of its seasons. The story is fast-paced, character-driven, and complex. The show balances its narrative with both excellent action sequences and
biting comedy, all while thoughtfully investing in beautiful period-realistic costumes and sets. But Agent Carter never feels like it is doing too much, and these many elements don't seem foreign to each other; instead, each is a part that is essential to the character of the show itself.
There is simply no other show on television that even begins to resemble Agent Carter - most shows don't attempt to do half as much, and Agent Carter succeeds in balancing all of its many parts.
