Some lucky bastards got to preview Daredevil's Season 2 and while we might be insanely jealous, we're ecstatic to hear that the reviews were positive.
If you truly enjoyed the first season, you're really going to love the second. The only two negative points brought up were a few issues with pacing and sudden tonal changes. But for the most part, the second season has been well-received.
After a mostly top-notch debut on Netflix, Marvel’s Man Without Fear begins season two on an uneven note, occasionally feeling as if he’s taken a detour from dark and gritty into the realm of Sam Peckinpah movies, complete with slow-motion bullets and blood sprays. Stick with it, though, and the show blossoms, featuring a few terrific action sequences while introducing into this grim world seminal characters the Punisher and Elektra – both mostly victimized by earlier feature adaptations. So far, the Marvel/Netflix collaboration has brought a nifty dimension to both parties.
Fans should be quite pleased with this extremely faithful incarnation of the [Elektra] character, as Yung is visually ripped from the panels of a Frank Miller comic. She looks the part and plays it with confidence, seduction and dangerous intrigue. Oh, and she can kick ass too. Naturally. There’s real, palpable chemistry between Yung and Cox, and whenever they’re onscreen together there’s an air of danger along with a feeling of a loss of control – for both characters.

The bad news is that Daredevil season 2 fails to address some of season one’s weaknesses. I can't really say that there's a supporting character who has emerged to take the place of Vondie Curtis-Hall's Ben Urich, so that's a presence that feels a little missed. The pacing, handily season one’s biggest flaw, hasn’t improved, and there’s no shortage of overwritten, overwrought dialogue, often delivered in long chunks. Sometimes it’s expository (which is little excuse), and other times, well, it feels like these characters just want to hear themselves talk.

Daredevil's Season 2 tells the story of Matt Murdock, who was blinded by a chemical spill in a freak accident. This blessing in disguise gave him superhuman senses that allowed him to see the world in a different manner. Now he uses his powers for justice, not only as a lawyer but also as a vigilante, walking the streets of Hell's Kitchen at night, fearing nothing as Daredevil.
Binge-watching all 13 episodes of Season 2 will be possible beginning March 18 on Netflix, but in the meantime, be sure to stay tuned for a second full trailer dropping tomorrow. It might help pacify those intense cravings until March rolls around.
