    Marvel’s Daredevil: Daredevil

    The final episode of Daredevil opens with a funeral and the first ten minutes finds all of the show’s characters defeated. Fisk’s murder of Ben Urich has brought no relief from his anger, and the double punch of Vanessa’s poisoning and his mother being found has left him even more paranoid of his partners. With Gao

    Daredevil: The Ones We Leave Behind

    In the penultimate episode of a show, the creators have to make a lot of moves to set up the season’s conclusion. In the case of “The Ones We Leave Behind,” the Daredevil writers have to begin paying off very methodically paced story developments and character arcs. The thematic crescendo of the closing can’t take

    True Detective: Night Finds You

    Before checking out the second episode of True Detective’s second season, “Night Finds You”, I took another look at the premiere. I didn’t particularly care for it the first time around, what with its ultra-manliness and ridiculous dialogue. Looking at it a second time, however, and knowing what to expect, I actually enjoyed it a

    Daredevil: Nelson v Murdock

    The triumph of last episode’s reveal of the Nelson and Murdock, Attorney at Law sign is undercut as Foggy, disgusted, tosses the plaque in the trash. “Nelson v Murdock” is propelled by astounding performances from Elden Hensley and Charlie Cox. With the majority of the episode’s run time taking place in scenes of the two

    Daredevil: Speak of the Devil

    My first thoughts as this episode begins? THE HAND, SUCKER!! That is a full-on red clad ninja out to kill Daredevil. I knew Nobu was not just Yakuza. My second thought is, man I wish there was a Ninja Turtles movie like this. Mostly because the TMNT origin is based on Daredevil and every time
