DareDevil Season 2


DDIntro

 

Our favorite blind pseudo-ninja is back, backflipping in the rain to beat crime. Took me four days from start to finish binge-watching this show. Six episodes a day, with a two-day break in between. (Broke some ribs recently so getting comfortable hasn’t been easy).  So no spoilers here, but I truly enjoyed season 2.

With the series taking a Mad Max-esque approach of the named protagonist being the window from which we see their world, but not always being the focus of the story, the welcome addition of Electra, The Punisher “You put them down, they get back up, I put them down, they stay down!”, and Karens evolution really made the season for me. Still I didn’t enjoy it quite as much as Season 1, and nowhere near as much as Jessica Jones.

It wasn’t as fresh as Season 1, lacking much of the awesome big-picture politics. In fact, the antagonists in this series seemed to exist purely for the heroes (and anti-heroes) to react to, lacking any real depth of their own. No Kingpin here. There were also a few scenes that were awesome but seemed to be carbon copies of season 1. For example, Season 1’s hallways fight now takes place going down a set of stairs this time and doesn’t come off nearly as well, maybe because we’ve seen it before.

…also I am not going to forgive Ramirez for leaving all those unanswered questions about the Hand and Black Sky.
