Some more thoughts on Agent Carter

Previously: On the Politics and Teaching of Erasure

I feel like Agent Carter's writers have been hanging on Tumblr or something because the last couple of episodes have had a fair number of POC in tiny one-off roles, and YET.

Anyhow, a lovely minor plot point this week was Angie's performance of a speech from Ibsen's A Doll's House, which has that lovely 1-2 of tying into Dollhouse the show with regards to how women are literally programmed (via the Leviathan/Red Room plot) and erased.

All the same, because of its issues and limitations, I'm still going to call it White Feminism: The Show. Which is frustrating because I do like the recurrent themes of physical and social "disability" and erasure, plus the writing is tight and the actors are great.

GRR ARGH CULTURE.
