Any other Daredevil fans here? The new season came out on netflix last friday and I pretty much neglected everything besides class to be able to watch the entire season in 24hrs. I have issues… Anyways. The new season starts pretty much where the last season left off. I was happy if slightly annoyed when I found out Fisk was still in it. Granted, I should have known that after my rant about why I loved how Deadpool ended. I’ll make a separate post for that.
I’ll be the first to admit I don’t know much about comic books outside their on screen adaptations so all I know about Daredevil is that he’s Marvel and anything else that’s been in the show. That being said, this was my first introduction to Elektra and Frank Castle aka the Punisher. I loved Frank’s character. He had so much depth and personality to him and was a great contrast to Matt Murdock. Those two are so similar but so different with how they go about dealing with the evil in Hell’s Kitchen and both believed in their way of doing things. Frank probably more than Matt.
And then there was Elektra. Now normally I like her kind of character. Flawed, badass, acts like nothing bothered her, but for the most part she annoyed me. Mainly because she was interrupting Matt’s life during Frank Castle’s trial and when he finally had a good thing going with Karen. She just. She was an awesome character but she was too disrupting. I get that is what the writers and directors wanted but still! I can only hope after that season finale that maybe Karen and Matt can pick things back up.
Once last thing I feel the need to comment on. The fight sequences. I love the fight sequences on this show. The stunt team is on point! Even if the fights are sometimes a little too flamboyant, they look awesome and that’s all that matters. And then The Hand, the evil organization that Stick’s “war” is all about fighting. Maybe it’s just me and maybe it’s just my love of Arrow, but there were a few times I said to myself, “there’s some League of Assassins’ shit going down right now.” I couldn’t help make that comparision even though Daredevil is Marvel and Arrow is DC.
Anyways, if you are currently suffering from Daredevil withdraw, I feel ya. Comment your thoughts and/or feelings if you want. I’d love to hear from other people about this season.
