muccamukk: Peggy holds a pencil between her teeth and studies a clipboard. (Cap: Preoccupied)

So a bunch of people who've signed up for [community profile] ssrconfidential wanted to do a canon refresher, and I agreed to host it. Since we're trying to get eighteen episodes watched before the main writing period really gets going, it's going to be pretty fast (think of it like those dance marathons from the 1930s). However, don't worry if this schedule doesn't fit your schedule. I'm just going to put the posts up on the below days; if you want to watch them then, yay, if you want to watch six on Saturdays and none during the week, also yay, just comment as something familiar passes you by. Don't worry about adding me, just track the Fest: Agent Carter Rewatch tag for e-mail alerts. I have anon posting turned on for those without DWs.

I'll be putting up the posts a little before 8pm (initially PST, then PDT after time change) on the following dates. I'm not sure if anyone is interest in irc chats to go with, but I can set up a channel if anyone is. Other suggestions welcome, in this regard. Commenting on the posts seems easiest to me as then no one has to be too worried about time zones. You can live blog reactions by replying to yourself in a chain, etc.

I am counting the main comment section as a SPOILER ZONE for the whole series and the MCU generally. However, I will make the first thread on each post spoiler free, and link to it from the main post for spoiler adverse first-time watchers. That thread will only have spoilers for that episode and the ones proceeding it, not for the rest of the series.

I'm not really going to have any rules, other than to please remember that thine favourite is not always mine favourite and the other way around. Expressing dislike of a character/plot/hat is fine, but don't be a dick about it.

Schedule:
3 March: 1x1 - "Now is Not the End"
5 March: 1x2 - "Bridge and Tunnel"
7 March: 1x3 - "Time and Tide"
9 March: 1x4 - "The Blitzkrieg Button"
11 March: 1x5 - "The Iron Ceiling"
13 March: 1x6 - "A Sin to Err"
15 March: 1x7 - "Snafu"
17 March: 1x8 - "Valediction"
19 March: 2x1 - "The Lady in the Lake"
21 March: 2x2 - "A View in the Dark"
23 March: 2x3 - "Better Angels"
25 March: 2x4 - "Smoke & Mirrors"
27 March: 2x5 - "The Atomic Job"
29 March: 2x6 - "Life of the Party"
31 March: 2x7 - "Monsters"
2 April: 2x8 - "The Edge of Mystery"
4 April: 2x9 - "A Little Song and Dance"
6 April: 2x10 - "Hollywood Ending"

I'm open for discussion on rewatching various other things Peggy appears in, such as Cap movies, Ant-Man and the mini movie thingy, presumably after the main rewatch. Comments? Questions? Opinions? Discuss them here.

There's also stuff in the DVD extras - you can see the ENTIRE 1951 Peggy Carter interview (Joe Russo is interviewing her!) they excerpted in Winter Soldier, and omg, I cried.

Also, man, the Peggy Carter and Jessica Jones DVDs were SO FUCKING DIFFICULT to get. Took forever for them to come out, and then they were $$$! altho I watched the used offers like a hawk. It'll probably take forever to get the Luke Cage ones too. SIGH.

Season 2 still isn't out DVD, is it? The way Marvel screwed that show over is so furymaking.

I've seen "region-free" Blu-rays on ebay for about forty bucks, but, well, ebay.

The Blu-ray is all regions but is really, really expensive. Most of the time, the third party copies on Amazon are around $60, so I jumped on it when I saw a copy for $30.

And that only works if you have a Blu-ray player.

If you can watch DVDs on your PC, it doesn't matter what region they are, they'll read on your PC with VLC open source software. I bought some David Soul US region DVDs (I'm from Europe) and I could watch them in my PC like this.

Sorry, I completely misread your comment. :p Maybe I need to wait my morning coffee before commenting on people's journals. :D

It's out on Blu-Ray but costs like FIFTY-FOUR DOLLARS on Amazon, and there's this very weird distribution thing with Amazon and ABC and Netflix. It's like they want people to stream it for as long as possible, and then pay the highest price to get the hard copy. IDEFK. I think you can get for about thirty-five or forty dollars on ebay, which is what I did, but I got sniped a couple of times. (I know it was dumb to pay that much, probably, but I just really wanted the S2 set.) There's a Limited Edition Steelbook Blu-ray, but I think all the extras that has is just a blooper reel. Which is pretty amazing. So people aren't going to want to pay over fifty bucks for a barebones set, which means the show gets screwed over again because sales may be low. And IIRC Peggy's one of their most popular female characters! They were even talking about a feature film with her not that long ago. //cries

I've linked to this from the ssrconfidential comms on LJ and DW, and will link from Tumblr too! Thank you for hosting it. :)

Is this the place we are supposed to comment the episodes, or each few episodes will get their own post?

Thanks, I thought as much but I wasn't sure if I got it right.

Thanks for organizing this. :)

I think I'll join in. I need an Agent Carter rewatch for Diana/Peggy writing purposes.
