Daredevil season two has started! We’ll be watching and reviewing a new episode every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday from here on out until we’ve finished the whole thing. As we rejoin our heroes in episode 201, “Bang”, local gangs have been jockeying to occupy the power vacuum left by the Kingpin’s exit last season, and Matt might have new competition in the “get tough on crime” game.
We’ve watch the trailers (see number one and number two), read the press, and are appropriately hyped for season two of Netflix’s man without fear, Daredevil. How long will the confrontation with the Punisher last, how does Elektra and the mysterious Hand organization fit in, and has everybody forgotten about Kingpin already? Next Friday, March 18th, our coverage begins! We’ll have new episodes every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday out until we run out of them to podcast on. Can’t wait, see you then!
We’re nearly into the second season of Netflix’s Daredevil series so it’s time to fire up the gears of the podcast machine. Last October a generous fan paid us to talk about the origin stories of both Daredevil and Kingpin. We went a little overboard and just talked about the whole damned first season. To start up the new feed, we’re repackaging that podcast and releasing it here.
Special thanks to Robert Packnett who commissioned us to take on Netflix’s 2015 series, “Daredevil”, with a particular emphasis on the episodes “Cut Man” and “Shadows in the Glass”. This was a particularly shrewd selection, as they both deal with the duality of the main hero and villain of the series, and their histories, similarities, strengths, and weaknesses. “Daredevil” is a series that is so much better than it has any right to be, and it’s a magical combination of the writing, direction, and incredible charisma of the main cast that holds it all together and keeps it on track, making it even greater than the sum of it’s parts.
