Last year, Marvel dropped an eye popping series on Netflix, which is different from its stock formula. Daredevil's first season got a widely positive response, and is also considered as the best superhero TV show of 2015 by many viewers. The second season of this dark and gritty show is highly anticipated. Season 2 hits Netflix on March 18, but the first review is out already.
An advance review of Daredevil Season 2 Episode 1 is out, written by IGN.
IGN is a website which never stands back in giving reviews on any superhero work. A pre review is published on their website and this is what they say.
An exciting, taut return for Daredevil, as the premiere episode fires on all cylinders. Matt's constant, violent neighborhood patrols (one of which opens the episode in glorious fashion) have now caused a bit of "escalation" on the vigilante front. And the Frank Castle/Punisher character feels like a wonderfully viable, logical, and dangerous addition to this world. And toward the end of this one, you begin to see why - despite some fans perhaps favoring Rated R-style heroes who murder - this solo sadist is a HUGE problem.
They called the episode GREAT and gave a score of 8.5 out of 10, which is pretty solid. Here are some positive points from the episode which they reported, along with their verdict.
- Matt/Foggy/Karen relationship
- Mystery element
Daredevil returns with a thrilling, intense episode involving the violent clash of heroic ideologies.
