Daredevil

I watch a lot of Netflix. I’m a film and television major here at DePaul so it is honestly the cheapest way to immerse myself in the art for creative purposes. One of the best things Netflix has to offer just premiered this week in the form of “Daredevil” season three. Now I’m sure there are people who are just not interested in comic book related things but to be honest this isn’t a usual comic book show. There aren’t crazy color costumes, there aren’t explosions and things of that nature. The show is more so a crime thriller with some action than anything else. The show follows a lawyer (Matt Murdoch) who despite being blind is a ninja who puts on a mask and beats up criminals at night in New York. But this specific season is great because it not only develops the incredible cast of characters wonderfully but the story is truly well-written. Twist and turns really keep you guessing till the very end and each episode transitions wonderfully into the next (allowing for maximum binging). The action scenes throughout the series are choreographed perfectly. It’s not your stereotypical comic book story, the show is dark, sometimes a bit bleak, but actually has a cool mystery the characters must solve throughout the seasons. Daredevil is entertaining and definitely a show worth your time if you’re up for a crime thriller with a lot of action. Don’t let the fact that it is based off a comic book not make you want to watch it.
