    It’s a good time to love superheroes. With Agents of SHIELD’s second season coming to a close with an insane finish and The Flash’s first racing to a finale that is sure to be as awesome and endearing as the rest of the season, it seems like a good time to step back and take a

    Daredevil – World on Fire

    For all the talk of this show being dark, I find that there is still a sense of hope and optimism that things can improve, even when things look dark that works beneath the surface.

    The major narrative thrust of Cut Man unfolds around getting back up after taking a beating.

    Marvel’s Daredevil: Into the Ring

    The premiere episode of Daredevil works because it defies expectations of what a super hero show should be. It isn’t about the violence, or the gritty, darker themes the show is structured around. It’s because this show takes its time to set up its world and its characters before it throws you in to an
