|Always perpetually behind on my TV watching, I just last week finished Season 1 of Marvel's Agent Carter. What an awesome show! If you're looking for a show with a strong female lead, you can't go wrong with this one. Peggy Carter is a woman who knows how to be a lady, but is also a soldier through and through, who can go toe-to-toe with the nastiest villains in the world. She's no shrinking violet, needing to be rescued. In fact, she's often the one saving the men around her, even though she rarely receives any recognition for it. On the contrary, she lives in a male-dominated era, where she can scarcely get a foothold to prove herself. Steve Rogers aka Captain America was one of the few men who ever treated her as an equal and recognized her true worth, and I think that's one of the reasons losing him was such a devastating blow to her.
