Daredevil (2014)

S1 – 9.7/10 / S2 – 7.1/10

Daredevil follows blind lawyer Matt Murdock living in New York City’s Hell Kitchen. Crime-ridden and overtaken by thugs and dark bosses, he adopts the persona of Daredevil and uses his other heightened senses to fight crime and bring justice.

*Possible spoilers ahead*

S1 – Dark, brooding, cynicism-heavy, and impeccably-crafted with a perfect lead casting in Charlie Cox, radically-inventive fight choreography, and a legendary/complex/human-centric villain performance by screen-stealing Vincent D’Onofrio bringing one of Marvel’s heavy-hitters to life: Kingpin, Netflix’s new project Daredevil is masterful television. 9.7/10.

S2 – A deliciously-dark, bohemian opening bringing another massive Marvel antihero to life in a phenomenal Bernthal-helmed Punisher arc that ends too *way* too quickly inexplicably sequestering him away fro mthe action devolves into a wildly-uneventful, problematically-paced Elektr(icity)-deprived slog of a second half a FAR-cry the brilliant S1’s quality. 7.1/10.

Official CLC Series Score: 9.4/10
