With the first season of Daredevil, Marvel thrust themselves into relatively unknown territory: that of designing television shows that not only fit into the Marvel Cinematic Universe (as prime-time predecessor Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. does), but are also extremely “adult-themed.” No, you perverts, we’re not talking that kind of adult situations – although if you watched the first season of the second Marvel/Netflix offering, Jessica Jones, you probably questioned that a bit – but the show is extremely rough-and-tumble and pull-no-punches in its presentation of the grime and corruption of society and how “everyday” heroes/vigilantes have to tread the fine line between law and lawlessness in order to truly make a difference. The first 13 episodes of Daredevil encapsulated that feeling to damn near perfection, and we’re happy to report that Season 2 not only picks up right where the madness left off, but actually manages to improve the gritty vibe via the fleshing out of existing characters and the introductions of several bad-ass new ones.
