Daredevil (Season 2)

It took me until now (finished it the other night) to watch all of season 2 of Daredevil, which pretty much tells you how I felt about it. I was a big fan of the first season, but it was pretty much because it centered on the fantastic portrayal of the Kingpin. Here, the only episodes that I really liked where the ones with his appearances, and they were too few to have a positive effect on the rest of the season. At first I was quite excited at the idea of the Punisher and Elektra being part of this, but Punisher feels wasted for most of the season, with all of the court stuff boring me to tears. Elektra was a bit more interesting, but for some reason I didn’t really find her to be like the character in the comics, which I like better. The Hand stuff was distracting because of the forced use of Japanese – not something most people would take notice, but if you understand Japanese, the bad pronunciation really took you out of it. All in all, I didn’t hate it, but it wasn’t at all as good as season 1.
