I’ve been pretty vocal in my love for the first season of Netflix’s Daredevil series, and with the Punisher and Elektra appearing in Season 2 I felt pretty comfortable in assuming that I’d love that one, too.
Season 2 struck Netflix on March 18th, and with my normal voracious appetite for all things Marvel Cinematic, I swallowed it whole and was done by March 20th.
No, I don’t regret it.
Well, not entirely true. I do slightly regret it in the fact that I didn’t take more time to enjoy the beauty of what was Season 2 of Daredevil, because it was just as fantastic as I anticipated. John Bergnal was nearly flawless as The Punisher, and Elodie Yung killed it as Elektra. With several amazing guest stars and some great tie-backs to Season One, it felt like a nearly perfect follow up, a little less embarassed than Season 1 to dive into more comic book themes. The Punisher earned his nickname in all sorts of different gruesome ways, and the potential follow up into an as-of-yet unannounced Season 3 is something I’m not sure I can wait a year for.
I was not the least bit disappointed and I suspect you won’t be either.
