I really loved the two hour premiere. Loved the time setting, loved the spy plot, and loved the supporting cast (Edwin Jarvis is great!) Haley Atwell as Peggy Carter is just wonderful. Great actress, great role,and she is very easy on the eyes. I hope they bring in more Super Hero related items or characters too (Cap wasn't the only one). Perhaps smaller characters like the Human Torch and Toro, or the Sub-Mariner. Heck, maybe even the Winter Soldier. As long as they keep the theme essentially the same, and build on the world, the show is a winner for me.
Two Thumbs Up!
Looking forward to the next episode.. :)
