    Daredevil Season 2 is just as good or better than Season 1 up until Elektra shows up then it kind of blogs down the storyline and Elektra doesn't help it along being one huge SUPER Bee Och! Of course I'm talking about the character and not the Actress. The Season 2 final makes up for the lag and drag of putting up with Elektra's constant attention grabbing of the story by making DAREDEVIL really come alive. With that being said I wish I could start watching Season 3 tomorrow....

    Season 1 - 5 stars & Season 2 - 2 stars. After episode 3 of this season, things went WAY downhill and plot points went COMPLETELY unresolved, so much that my boyfriend and I thought we skipped an episode. At the end of episode 3, why didn't Daredevil do anything with Punisher in the elevator? He was suddenly free in episode 4. Also, in episode 4, what happened when Karen was in the Castle house and the van pulled up? She was suddenly back at the office with no hint of what happened the previous day. While watching this episode, we felt like we were having Alzheimer's with the skipped resolution to important scenes. Suddenly, everything was back to normal the next day. Wth? And then when Elektra enters the scene at the very end. My boyfriend predicted it before she entered the scene because of the no-sense romance they pushed between Karen and Murdock right before. As a woman, I love romance but, honestly, this felt so forced. Formulaic and cliche to the end, we then see the love interest and third member of the love triangle enter. Talk about a WB-show move. What happened to the writing guys??? We're so sad. :( Maybe we'll come back to finish off season 2 one day...

    Sorry, but I just changed my rating for this series. I wish they had separate ratings for each season because season 1 was wonderful. I couldn't wait to get home from work and watch the next episode. Along with Jessica Jones, (which I also loved) it gave the whole hero genre' a gritty sense of realism with accessible and flawed characters dealing with life issues we can all relate to. Daredevil episodes were primarily character driven while giving fans sufficient action and stunning fight sequences. But whatever balance they had achieved in the first season is completely lost in the second. I've had to struggle to get through this one. Clever and genuine sounding repartee' has been replaced by lengthy expository monologues and repetitious arguments that keep running over conflicts which have already been established. The emoting comes off as inappropriate and forced. The dialogue is redundant and excessive, and it seems the writers keep trying to build up to a one liner which winds up falling flat. It's like the series was taken over by fanfiction writers. The plot is labyrinthine to the point of being cumbersome, the action is predictable with far too many deus ex machina popping out of the shadows at the moment of necessity. And the violence has become simply gratuitous. It's not even shocking anymore. It's just gross. Desperately gross. And while I know most people won't care about little stuff like this, the courtroom scene drove me crazy when Matthew suddenly shifts from questioning the Punisher to delivering a closing summation to the jury. -sigh- Paying attention to small accuracies is what makes the big stuff more plausible. And the Ninja thing...? Yawn. I don't know what happened to season 2 of this series. It's almost as bad as what happened to True Detective. If this going a precedent, then just leave Jessica Jones alone. I don't want to have to change my rating on that one too.

    The second season was more exciting for me than the first; it was fast-paced and there seemed to be a new element to the story being introduced every episode. This can be a good thing or a bad thing depending on your tastes. Some have noted that this season can feel very busy at times with the addition of the two new characters, which I tend to agree with, although this did not bother me enough to subtract a star from my review. The Punisher was a much needed element on the show in order to balance out Murdock's constant "I can't kill anyone" spiel, because at certain times you just have to sit there and wonder if he is ever going to get down off his high horse and do what needs to be done. Some of the people he is fighting can't even be considered people after everything they've done and are trying to do, and he isn't doing anyone any favors by letting them live. Elektra was also a very strong character on the show, and I liked how she was constantly pulling him in multiple directions just by being around him. Going forward, I hope the writers tone it down on the preachiness of DD, because hearing the same moral argument all the time doesn't make it any less dull or unnecessary. We get it; he's a bleeding heart type who just has to bend over backwards to help everyone. But wouldn't it be more interesting for him to make some morally grey decisions every once in a while? The Punisher said he was one bad day away from becoming like him, so maybe they should make him act like it. Also, please get rid of Karen, just hearing her voice makes me cringe and she is always breaking down over everything that happens to her. Every time they tried to have a scene featuring her I groaned internally knowing it would be another five minutes of her crying about something.

    Daredevil is Marvel's best MCU entry to date. It takes some seriously talented people to pull off this beautiful, dark, and yet still light-hearted at times, show. Plot is riveting and makes it nearly impossible to stop watching until you just run out of episodes, and the action is matched only by The Raid movies in my opinion. The cast is phenomenal as well (Charlie Cox and Jon Bernthal in particular) and truly brings their characters to life. But none of the characters are as impressive as Frank Castle. The Punisher in season 2 alone is miles above any character the Marvel films have done to date, and is by far the best live-action version of the character ever. Bernthal brings so much depth and a very surprising amount of emotion and sympathy to Frank Castle and even as a long time fan of the character I found myself captivated by this new interpretation immediately. By the third episode I was ready for him to have his own mini-series and by the fourth I was ready to beg everyone at Marvel for it.

    DID NOT LIKE:
    1. I agree. The choreography was not up to par with the first season but it could also be that there were more ninjas in this season compared to petty criminals in the first. I can also totally relate about the fight scenes wanting to end lol. I kinda started doing other stuff when fights would start because it was too predictable. I'd prefer it if they add some originality to the fights like some new moves or something so that the main part of the show, the action, does not get stale.
    2. 100+ ninjas lol. The suit does really help him out and Melvin (ghetto Q) is helping him out but I don't really understand why Daredevil acts like a little boy throwing a tantrum while asking Melvin to get the suit. Especially dialogues like "I need the suit, Melvin" is kinda fucked up when Melvin is doing this out of the goodness of his heart.
    3. Lol biggest goof by bar. I think they get around it by saying that they are able to track the hearbeat to a simillar rhythm but the airflow is something that can be distinctly heard. So I guess I can agree with that statement. Well, I can live with it.
    4. Yea, by far the biggest thing. All of a sudden, he's the resident douchebag but I think they did a great thing by not pushing all the love triangle shit beyond a couple of episodes. Although, I do sense a Elektra Daredevil love child in the future sometime soon lol.
    5. Karen getting killed? goddamn, that's gonna be hard. I think it'll be hard to kill her off unless Elektra joins up with Daredevil as I think there'll always be at least one love interest.

      DID LIKE: 1. Punisher is definitely the man to watch this season and I wonder if they were trying to build th building block for a Punisher TV show. It seems like all the fringe heroes that did not do so well in box office is being recasted as TV heroes. 2. Agreed that the women are hella pretty and hella skilled. Don't forget Foggy's love interest, Marci Stent i think her name is? But goddamn, Karen and Elektra are two fine ladies and Claire just oozes sensuality. I kinda feel bad for these women though lol since they get beat up or end up being a target multiple times. 3. VDO's portrayal of Fisk is by far the game changer in the show. He has gotten Fisk down to pefection and adding additional dimensions to Fisk's character which is a huge plus. I thought the way he arranges his crew in the jail was kinda stupid but all in all, the way he gets the Punisher to come and kill the other guy was pretty awesome. Even awesome is the speech he gives Matt Murdock and the ending sentence "We should do this again some time" was purrfect.

        Summary: I thought season 1 was better but then again, it had different plots and different enemies so it might not be that comparable. The main difference I noted was the change from Alex Shevchenko to Karim Zreik as co producer. I believe that might have resulted in the different production quality between the two seasons. All in all, they were both good seasons but I was a little underwhelmed by the second even though I was glued to the screen. *damn character limit* lol.

          Dude this is like a post buried in another post lol. I agree with you guys got the most part. On the love triangle thing, it was pretty sad that they killed Elektra off in the second season but I'm guessing Karen is out of the picture too? Enter new women in the third season? I'm all for more of that and less of the love drama

    While I had given Season 1 five stars, I would give S2 four stars. I love The Punisher, that the Kingpin, Fisk, has returned, as well as some other "blasts from the past," so to speak, but I am not really enjoying the overdone Ancient-Asian-Mythological theme. I like DD to work on "his" city, as he has often referred to it; I enjoy watching his tackle and combat real, everyday problems and criminal activity. To be blatantly truthful, I don't necessarily turn my head and curse and vigilante behavior, such as DD and The Punisher. They both have great background stories and clean up shoppe! I am a serious MARVEL girl all the way, but I have watched "Green Arrow," and though much of the writing is good, sometimes the mythological subplots wear me out... Like the true DD comic books, his fighting everyday criminal groups and all his business with the Kingpin is great and catches most's attention. I do like the Elektra in S2 here; however, the last few episodes the writers, in my opinion, have given her way too much focus. Hasn't anyone learned from the ridonculous "Elektra" movie? Most like Jennifer Garner and the action, but it tanked. Stick (no pun intended) to her ka with DD and some slight sideline story, please; when the subplots go rogue, it's irritating! Even as a feminist and "girl power" all the way, you can still have her scenes and role be intrinsic without having to do too much melodrama...

    Daredevil this season, season 2, was only disappointing in that it ended so quickly! Why are these seasons so short, you do realize that we are all online junkies and that we're going to watch the entire season in 1-2 days, right. You, I can't even believe I'm saying this, but at least it would keep people entertained all year long, should go to a weekly releasing schedule. You know, as you film, and complete all the polishing, you release a new episode until the season is over like the networks. Also, what's with these half seasons? You call them seasons, but they only run for half as long as regular TV series do during the year, but we have to wait just as long for another "season" to come out. I realize, it takes money, but you're doing well, if you didn't have the money, you wouldn't be doing this. So, finish putting the money into the show, and make them complete seasons, 22-26 episodes long, vs 12-13 episodes long, please. The show is too good to not deserve more time than this. You have the fan base, now, blow it up! BTW, season 2, was excellent! Bringing in new characters, and PAINFULLY veering the comrades of the firm in 3 different directions, yet, still, having them on the same team in completely different and dynamic ways. The new protagonists in the story are a welcome to the team: The Punisher and Elektra. They are both completely different, but both flawed in different ways, and Daredevil is caught between trying to save the city and the souls of his new comrades at arms. IT'S SO GOOD! And, thank you for following the precedent that The Flash and The Arrow have set forth in allowing the protagonist of the shadows to uncover himself to his trusted allies, and not have to keep his identity a secret to EVERYONE on the face of the Earth, and hold the wait of the world on his own two shoulders. They are all human, and it's a good lesson to learn, especially from super heroes, that everyone needs help from trusted friends!

    Maybe I'm the only one who found season 2 much better then season 1 - If they do not bring the show back for season 3 - it would be really disappointing. The Fight, The Story, The Drama, The Emotions were very deftly handled and wins top rating. I found this show much better then the newly released season of House of Cards - which was a total turn off and can easily be cancelled.

    Mind you, I loved Season 2, but things got too ... convoluted at times. By that, the overall story tries to fit too many major characters in one season. S1 had one big story that felt organic and whole due to the fact of the big presence that was the Kingpin. In S2, the story felt piecemeal and at times, too hard to follow since there are too many major characters with its own themes and tones. Our hero Daredevil felt like being pulled into a thousand directions during S2. Well, so did I! But why do I still love S2? Because the show presented the Punisher and Elektra just right. I still remember the lackluster Punisher and Elektra movies all those years ago (no offense to the actors/actresses who performed them). Those movies were so boring, but the actor/actress who played those two here? Awesome. Action doesn't disappoint although (as others have said) it was getting a bit gratuitous. I can't wait to see what's waiting in S3 as other MCU shows picks up. I have no idea where S3 is going since the plot didn't explain itself all that well.

    Season 1...wonder if it has anything to do with season one's showrunner: Steven S. DeKnight being replaced.
