Old TV Reviews

Here are my past TV reviews in each year.

2015

Marvel’s Daredevil

I am going to do something a bit different in this review post, because I am going to review a TV show called Marvel’s Daredevil:

Pros:
Charlie Cox as Daredevil is awesome. He is so much better than Ben Affleck’s version in the Daredevil movie years ago.
Certain backstories (like Matt Murdock’s dad) are very interesting and impressive.
I like how this is the first time Matt Murdock becomes Daredevil, and how he struggles to keep on with his superhero work while going through his lawyer and religious life…

Cons:
…That being said, this may not work for everyone considering that he gets his butt kicked so many times, and this series spends most of the time with Matt Murdock without his mask.
Vincent D’Onofrio as Wilson Fisk (aka Kingpin) should have been a great choice, but it is not. The only emotion that this character/actor seems to convey is sadness. Rarely does this guy have another emotion (besides anger), but it goes by pretty quickly. His romantic interest, Vanessa Marianna is much more interesting character and actress than he is.
The first couple episodes are pretty good, but it gets a little predictable and cliche throughout the rest of the season. It is not bad, but it gets a little annoying when they have to talk about certain things over and over again, especially if they do not show it.

Overall:
The first of Marvel’s Netflix series (the next three are A.K.A. Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, and Iron Fist), Marvel’s Daredevil is another way for Marvel to expand its Cinematic Universe. This TV series is different than the Marvel films you guys have seen on the big screen. This series is darker and more down-to-earth so to speak. However, it does has its problems as I pointed down in the cons. The Marvel Netflix series has potential, but it does need some work. I hope to see how A.K.A. Jessica Jones will turn out later, and how the Marvel Cinematic Universe will fit into all of this. Might as well prepare for Avengers: Age of Ultron then.

The review process will be different in the TV series. Instead of a points score, I will give out one of three review choices: Pass, Occasional Viewing, or Watch It.

Occasional Viewing

By the way, do not expect many TV series reviews. I do not have that much time to see these anyway, but this is the only exception since I am a huge Marvel fan.
