I’m going deaf in my old age.

No, seriously, stone deaf.

Too many films with explosions in, that’s my issue.

Well, it’s either that or every single person in Daredevil is trying to show how important and meaningful their dialogue is by barely even whispering it. Seriously, I had my TV’s volume almost up to full and I could still barely hear anything- Which didn’t help my relationship with my neighbors when a gun was fired mid-scene.

Aside from that minor niggle, and a certain amount of padding around the middle of the series, this is another amazing series by Netflix. There’s a reason that this is on IMDB as the 63rd best TV show ever.

Set several months after the first season, this time we see Matt Murdock (played astoundingly by Charliee Cox) attempting to juggle his legal responsibilities with the rise of The Punisher ( Jon Bernthal), the return of ex-flame Elektra (Elodie Yung) and the rise of The Hand, a group of ninjas who might have supernatural abilities.

The acting is uniformly amazing, with Cox delivering another stand-out performance as the titular character, but even among the supporting cast there’s nary a weak link to be found. And although it does have a few slower episodes, this is a more subtle telling than would be possible in a show released week-to-week and even those moments which seem out of place or pointless soon have a resolution or are made to make sense.

And it goes without saying that the action is incredible, with the series trademark one take action scenes and more traditionally edited fight scenes, not as frequent as would be expected, but making up for in quality what they lack in quantity.

I really did devour this over  a weekend and found myself suffering from ‘just one more’ even at 2 am.

What i’m going to do until the next Netflix show arrives I just don’t know…

My Score- See It Now
