Did You Know?


Violet asks Daniel if he remembers a nurse friend of hers named Regina, who apparently, is "the one with the wart". Sarah Bolger (Violet) plays a Princess Aurora in Once Upon a Time (2011), where Regina is the name of the evil queen from Snow White, who, in the original story, disguises herself as a warty old hag to trick Snow White into eating a poisoned apple.

Agent Impossible
10 February 2016 | by ThomasDrufkeSee all my reviews

I think one of the main reasons why this show isn't watched by many people is that it's just so incredibly different than any other comic book shows or films. The time period is an obvious difference, but the tone and story lines are structured much more for an older audience. With that said, I think this episode was a departure from some of what wasn't working with this season, but also from some of what made this season very entertaining thus far.

My main problem with the episode and sometimes the series as a whole is its tone. Take Jarvis for example, he's a goofy exuberant character that fits in with this show very well because without him there would be no comedic relief and it would otherwise be a pretty serious adventure story. He shined once again tonight but I think at times the writing tended to write everyone's character more to fit a show around Jarvis' tone rather than sprinkle it in accordingly. I had fun watching Peggy make Jones look absolutely ridiculous as a businessman trying to constantly get with Peggy, but it got a little bit cartoon-ish after awhile. It was also refreshing to see the team take on some new members in Rose and Dr. Samberly, but I also didn't see them fit in tonally with what the mission actually asked for, finding the atomic bomb.

We got our first real look at Joseph Manfredi tonight, who will seemingly step in and take the lead villain role from Calvin Chadwick once Whitney has had enough of him. Once again though, I just hope Ken Marino fits in tonally with what the show calls for, because when he's good, he's really good. Finally, it was interesting to see one of the teams mission end in near failure as Peggy was impaled by a pole towards the end. In what was pretty much a Mission Impossible like mission, you have to assume something was going to go wrong. In all, it's a fun episode, but I'm just worried for the direction the show is going tonally.

+Ken Marino

+Mission Impossible like heist

+Peggy undercover

-Rose and the doctor seem out of place

-Some tonal issues all around
