We just started watching this last night. Only two episodes in but it seems pretty fun. I didn’t have the violent hate reaction many people seemed to have to the Daredevil movie a few years ago with Affleck – I have a very high tolerance and tend not to get furious about movies, because I think getting furious about movies is inexpressibly dumb – but this seems more engaging and watchable.
It’s also gone for the dark and gritty, but not in a too-grating or excessive sort of way. Just realistic, I think, rather than too superhero-ey.
Not having seen Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. (thank you very much, US-centric Netflix elitism), and not having started Agent Carter yet either, I guess this is my first Marvel TV show set in the movie universe. It’s nice to have some sort of style difference between the TV show and the movies, which I think this show offers. There’s also more freedom for long story arcs, and of course some blood and swearing that they probably have to be more careful with in blockbuster movies. It’s also not as colourful, but I think that works.
Looking forward to checking out more of it. I haven’t really reviewed much TV so I’m not sure how I’ll go about it.
