Daredevil season two is yet another love letter to the darkest, seediest and most brutal corners of the Marvel Universe.
Its strengths are many: the stellar fight scene choreography and unwavering commitment to recreating Matt Murdock’s world chief among them.
But for all those highlights, there are problems. Some wooden dialogue hampers otherwise engaging character interplay, while a few curious character choices keep the second season of the hit Netflix show from realizing its full potential.
Despite those flaws, Daredevil remains one of the best streaming series around, and is a must watch both for comics fans and anyone who just really enjoys watching people getting the shit kicked out of them.
Netflix has really nailed it with the new jailhouse drama/comedy Orange is the New Black. It’s fun, it’s scripted and paced well, and it features some fantastic acting. It’s a reverse-Cinderella story that just hammers home that Netflix’s biggest strength actually lies in original programming.
The new season of Arrested Development is a dud. Much like a former lover who saunters back into your life after an extended absence…something’s just not quite right.
Sure, there are flashes of the chemistry that initially drew you to each other. But in the end you’re left with a hollow feeling and knowing that some things are best fondly remembered rather than trying to rekindle them.
