The People v. Castle [Daredevil Season 2]
Daredevil Season 2 has been released on Netflix. Featuring the return of everyone's favorite (surviving) characters, Matt Murdock, Karen Page, and Foggy Nelson.
Joining them this time around are newcomers Elektra:
And Frank Castle:
This thing is probably my favorite Netflix original series right now and I want to talk about PEOPLE GETTING PUNCHED
Your thoughts on the above may slightly adjust on each consecutive episode.
I'm on ep 4 right now.
Well, that's dissappointing, but hopefully it's handled well.
That line was pretty rough
It was hilarious
Well yeah but I dont think that was on purpose
Am I going to be missing out if I haven't started Jessica Jones yet?
I'd forgotten how much I like Foggy. This show needs all the levity it can get and Elden Henson's delivery is great
For some reason I had a strong impression last season that Melvin was mentally handicapped and Fisk was taking advantage of that, but the actor is not playing it that way at all this season, dude suddenly seems perfectly lucid
yyyyyeah I think that might have gotten written out because he 100% was
there's a tiny reference, but it's kinda vague and has no impact on anything. Really just establishes the timeline (which is the same as the order of release)
Well you are missing out, but not necessarily for reasons related to daredevil. JJ is a good show.
Still not an excuse and all, but it's more than "MY FAMILY DIED" which Matt has already called bullshit on
Also the DA is slimy in a not fun way
The idea that we have a tv show where a WHOLE EPISODE is 2 vigilantes discussing their reasons for doing what they do is so damned cool
Punisher is an absolute monster
His worst/best quality is without a doubt his persistence
Coincidence, poorly thought out pseudonym, or brother with uncreative parents?
Yeah, that's all I really have to say about that part too.
Also end of ep3
"You don't get to say that!"
Like (spoilers up to episode five)
further, the black cop they press for information basically gives them information because Matt says... he already knows that a guy was wearing body armor? and then later on he lets Daredevil go because... Daredevil told him to take the credit for it? And the ADA gives Karen a bunch of files because... his boss might theoretically throw him under the bus maybe?? And then the guys in the ER stop fighting because Foggy gives a speech that takes the long way around to "there's cops right there and you'll go to jail forever if you fight now" as if these guys didn't already know that!
Like some of these character motivations almost seem almost like non-sequiturs to move the plot along
I even thought "how does she know that x-ray is frank???" until I thought about it and well, I guess it had to be because it was for a John Doe and it was an x-ray, and everything else in that file would have been a corpse with a name attached I guess (though that leads her to a guy who's a janitor now who used to be a nurse I guess? who took Frank home and presumably smuggled him out of the hospital because he told him to?? even though he knew that would cost him his job??? huh???)
Anyway, show's alright, pacing feels a bit weird and writing seems off but the fight choreography is arguably better than ever. All the fights with Frank have been spectacular so far. The sequence from episode three doesn't top the hallway fight (it's a bit less artful I think and it obviously cuts in several places) but it's still a fucking incredible fight sequence with a ton of really creative choreography, so I don't fault it one bit
Oh and one last thing: I did not expect this season to somehow be even more explicitly violent last season, but boy they do not cut away at all, even when someone has a shotgun pointed at another guy's face
That face was just gone
It was awesome
