Just when Matt thinks he is bringing order back to the city, new forces are rising in Hell’s Kitchen. Now the Man Without Fear must take on a new adversary in Frank Castle and face an old flame – Elektra Natchios.
My Daredevil - Season One review can be found here!
If I thought I loved Season One, that’s nothing compared to how much I love this season.
Most of that is due to the addition of Frank Castle/The Punisher to the cast! Jon Bernthal is absolutely brilliant in this role and always stole the focus even from the lead and titled character.
There is a lot more action and stunts, if possible, a lot more blood and violence. It’s refreshing to see that when a character gets hit and/or stabbed, that they actually bleed and bruise unlike in some shows where they don’t show any signs of injury.
The show is still full of strong and interesting characters; whomever Marvel/Netflix has on casting is doing a spectacular job! Foggy is definitely the heart of this show even though he doesn’t seem to have a huge storyline.
Karen Page on the other hand annoys the crap out of me! Not only is she an annoyed character, I’m stumped by how she seems to be able to go anywhere she wants and gets jobs anywhere without any accreditation or experience; she a secretary and yet gets to be in the courtroom and even worse, left alone with a ruthless killer.
In some moments of this season, Matt started to get on my nerves. Starting to become self-righteous and apparently switches between loving Karen and Elektra like the flick of a switch!
I can’t wait to Season Three, The Defenders and The Punisher series. Netflix has done an amazing job with these shows and the characters.
