Thanks to Netflix's glitch a few weeks back, I thought the first season of Agent Carter (2015-16) was only 3 episodes long, and Season 2 skipped episodes.

Is it really necessary to go back and re-watch it all now that Netflix has fixed this issue? From what I watched, there really wasn't much that was later relevant in, or referenced, the MCU, except for Howard Stark finally getting his hover car to work (which was originally shown in Captain America: The First Avenger (2011)).

    Why not watch it for the enjoyment of its own self? Connections with the MCU aren't really important in that respect.

  • @Paulie_D - Well, what I saw I wouldn't consider to be "must see TV". So I was just going to move on to the next show rather than go back and re-watch it. I was just curious if anything pops up that fills in gaps from the MCU movies. Commented May 11, 2022 at 15:28

    The show itself references a lot of characters (Peggy Carter, Howard Stark, the Howling Commandos, Ivan Vanko, Arnim Zola etc.) and organizations (SSR, SHIELD, Red Room) from the MCU proper. It would take a while to compile a full list. It doesn't have a lot of impact on other movies, although some characters from the show later appear in other MCU properties.

  • For what it's worth, the IMDB ratings for individual episodes show a marked increase in quality for the second half of Season 1. Commented Jul 13, 2022 at 16:35

Whilst no actions from the series cause any events to happen in the MCU timeline, it is quite a good series to watch and provides useful background information about both Captain America and Tony Stark (mostly his family history).
