I hate subtitles being on but I had to turn them on it was just getting to hard.
the writing on Daredevil is EXPONENTIALLY leaps and bounds above the writing on Luke Cage, Iron Fist, or JJ
it's astonishing really
I love patois so hearing it on screen plus reading subs was cool. Listening to Ska, reggae, dance hall, and ragga over the years finally paid off!
True I think Alfre probably is the better villian compared to Pam. If Pam was in that role instead, it would have maybe add a little more credibility in Shades being in the relationship with Mariah for both power and pussy. Instead I would venture most people probably assumed he was in it to be in a good position of power.
I'm not sure why people are questioning the "chemistry" on the relationship. Shades was on the down low anyway, his proclivities weren't exactly mainstream.
I didn't get that vibe that he was on the down low. Are you basing that on Mariahs comment?
Dont you have things to do? You waiting 8 episodes and your not falling asleep anymore? I give a show 2 episodes max to reel me in... and that's pushing it.
I struggled through most of the first four episodes with the highlights being the music. The scenes in the club with the sound check’s or live music were fantastic. Once they started fleshing out Bushmaster more it really grabbed me but it still suffers from what other Netflix series do. It’s too long, episodes would be better off shorter or only 9-10 episodes at most per season.
Just finished episode 3. If it hadn't been for Bushmaster, I'd have tapped out by now.
I actually fell asleep during the argument between Luke and Clair!
This season is worst than Iron Fist. It's so fucking slow and monotonous. It could've been 6 episodes.
that KRS one performance was fire yo.
simone missick and gabriel dennis were bonertastic this season. theo rossi has a hilarious voice.
I agree that it could of been maybe 6-8 episodes but Iron fist is still the worst.
Resurrecting this thread just to say how shitty this show is. I made it 2 episodes this latest season, and I'm out. Like last season, the acting was wooden and they seem.... to drag out...every...sentence. I had high hopes for Bushmaster too.
But that scene where he's trying out for Todd Bowles, running and shit...easily the cringiest thing Marvel has ever done. The fuck was the point of that scene? The ESPN personalities? "Oh my god, a human shouldn't be able to do that."
New cop is hot though...
End of rant.
This season was so inconsistent. Lots of highs and lows:
Pointless plot lines (Luke getting sued)
Forced drama (Claire)
Bushmaster was cool, especially as more of an antihero than a villain
Interesting developments of Shades and Mariah’s characters
Couple of cool team up scenes (Luke with Danny, Luke with Bushmaster)
While overall it was kind of a weak season I’d say that second last episode was probably my favourite episode of the series so far (Luke teaming up with Bushmaster, Shades spilling his guts to the cops, KRS One’s performance, final battle between Bushmaster vs everyone at the club)
