2015’s Agent Carter was…how shall I put this? Met with mixed reception? But even that would be wrong. Critically, it was well-received and I certainly loved it. But if shows like Firefly, Constantine, and Arrested Development, to name a few, are any indication, it’s that critical acclaim alone don’t keep a show on the air. While the show was enjoyed by many, that didn’t equate to ratings.
So here we are at issue #150: “Betrayed.” On top of a huge confrontation and demonstration of strength in Alexandria, we’re getting a lot of seeds planted for what’s to come down the line as Rick rallies the communities. It’s a good issue.
