It’s a review! There are spoilers below, so I’ve put an edited, minimal-spoiler version here.
You join me as I ponder the recently released Daredevil Season 2, the series that piqued my interest in superhero fiction after a decade of tired, overblown films about cgi dudes punching other cgi dudes in stupid outfits. But it’s not good news. This second season, while not disastrous, is an often clumsy, inconsistent, and at times painfully cringeworthy offering, which revels in grotesque and unnecessary close ups of torture and death, including multiple slashed throats and the jolly sight of a man taking a shotgun blast to the face.
