TV Review: Daredevil Season Three!

220px-Daredevil_season_3_posterMINOR SPOILERS

I’ll be honest, the last few seasons of the various Marvel Netflix shows have been a bit of a slog. Ever since Defenders, it seemed like all of the various shows, from Luke Cage to Iron Fist to even Jessica Jones started spinning their wheels, and eventually they became to feel like a real slog to get through. Thankfully though, Daredevil‘s third season has come along and not only rejuvenated that show after an uneven second season, it’s also reignited my interest in the other Marvel Netflix shows (well, the remaining ones, that is).

TV Review: The Defenders!

Much like the solo movies of their big screen counterparts, the main appeal of the four Marvel Netflix shows (Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, and Iron Fist) was the idea that the four would join forces in their own team up series The Defenders.  Now that the four have had their own seasons (or two in Daredevil’s case), it’s finally time for them to join up and crack some Hand ninja skulls as only they can. While Defenders takes a while to get going, once Jessica Jones (Kristen Ritter), Daredevil (Charlie Cox), Luke Cage (Mike Colter), and Iron Fist (Finn Jones) get together, the show becomes one of the most entertaining entries in the Marvel Netflix deal, albeit with a few small setbacks.

TV Review: Daredevil Season 2!

Starring: Charlie Cox, Jon Bernthal, Elodie Yung, Deborah Ann Woll, Elden Henson

MINOR SPOILERS

Daredevil made quite the splash last year as the first of Marvel Studios’ projects with Netflix, and many were surprised that a second season would hit before Luke Cage, Iron Fist, and Defenders, the Avengers-esque team up with the Marvel Netflix properties (which also includes Jessica Jones, which premiered back in November). If Daredevil season one was Marvel’s Batman Begins, then this is their Dark Knight or Empire Strikes Back, expanding the scope of the series to include new characters, enemies, and more for Matt Murdock and his supporting cast to do.

TV Review: Daredevil Season 1, Episodes 7-13

I’ll be honest, the second half of Marvel’s Daredevil could’ve been 7 episodes of Matt Murdock break dancing while Kingpin beat boxes around him and I’d still give this series a glowing review. Thankfully, the second half of this series is just as good as the first, even with a few minor hiccups here and there. If the first six episodes of Daredevil serve as setting the stage for Matt Murdock and his world, the second half dismantles that world piece by piece, and uncovers secrets behind the Man Without Fear and his nemesis, Wilson Fisk. It also features two of the best episodes of the season: “Stick” and “Shadows In Glass”. Read the rest of this entry

TV Review: Daredevil Season 1, Episodes 1-6

daredevil-posterMILD SPOILERS

Marvel’s Daredevil is dark, gritty, and extremely violent. It’s like nothing else the studio has released. And it’s incredible. At the risk of sounding like a broken record, Marvel has done it again, delivering a gripping story that honors the character it’s focused on, and adds to the legacy of Matt Murdock. Ol’ Hornhead has had some incredible stories throughout his 50+ years in comics, and we can now add Drew Goddard, Steven DeKnight, and the rest of the show’s creative team to the Daredevil list that includes writers Ed Brubaker, Brian Michael Bendis, and Frank Miller.

The Trailer Without Fear!

11958148The trailer we’ve been eagerly awaiting is finally here!

No, not Batman V Superman! I’m talking about the trailer for the upcoming Netflix Daredevil series from Marvel Studios! So far there’s not a lot to go by in regards to the plot, but we’ve got a great sense of tone for the upcoming series. For a while there, there was some confusion regarding what version of ol’ Hornheard we’d be seeing in live action on our screens in a few months: could it be in line with the Frank Miller version of the character? Or the Bendis/Brubaker run? Or would it be light and borderline goofy like Mark Waid’s run? Read the rest of this entry
