Daredevil – Season 3 Episodes 5 – 9 Review

Daredevil S3 P2

Just when you thought it couldn’t get worse for Matt Murdock / Daredevil, along comes a super-talented corrupt agent wearing his own suit! Typical. Seriously though, these five episodes are pretty much entirely about turning Agent Poindexter into Bullseye (though without that codename…) and it does that brilliantly. Let’s take a closer look!

Iron Fist – Season 2 Overall Review

Iron Fist S2

Iron Fist Season 2 is a far, far better season than its first. While not perfect, Season 2 at least has characters you care about, it’s shorter in length, lacks big business boardroom meetings and has lots of well choreographed fight scenes. Roasting Iron Fist Season 1 was one of the first posts to go up on this blog, so it’s nice to see the follow up be far more fun to review. Well… let’s have a look then!

Iron Fist – Season 2 Episodes 6 – 10 Review

Iron Fist S2 P2

The second half of Iron Fist Season 2 manages to continue the momentum from the first half and deliver a satisfying conclusion. The sheer difference in quality between seasons 1 and 2 is staggering, but that doesn’t mean this season is flawless… So let’s take a look and see just how many different Iron Fists one season can cram in!

Iron Fist – Season 2 Episodes 1 – 5 Review

Iron Fist Season 2 P1

The original Iron Fist season got a lot wrong, it was focused on boardroom politics too much, it had too many unlikable characters and, bizarrely, had few martial arts sequences and ones they did do were often poorly done. So, Season 2? Massive improvement so far. Better fights, more fights, and practically no scenes in Rand Enterprises at all! While it’s not perfect, it far better… so let’s take a look at the first half! (it’s only 10 episodes this time…)

Cloak & Dagger – Season 1 Overall Review

Cloak & Dagger S1

Cloak & Dagger feels much more in line with the Netflix side of the MCU than any other, and I don’t just mean the few name drops in the show itself! It’s down to Earth and on street level, not afraid to show violence but also very much a super hero show. Let’s take a closer look at what was a pleasant surprise to watch…

Agents of SHIELD – Season 5 Overall Review

AoShield S5

Agents of SHIELD Season 5 is a mixed bag. They sadly dropped the three mini arcs idea from the previous season and went for a split, though with the two halves heavily dependent on each other. There were plenty of call-backs and pay-offs during this season, and an ending that would make you think it was the overall end, but there’s still more on the way! Anyway, let’s take a look then, at a season that spanned space, the future and beyond! … Well, actually, just space, the future and present day. Still impressive though!

Agents of SHIELD Season 5 Episodes 18 – 22 Review

AoShield S5 P3

Agents of SHIELD’s Fifth Season comes to a close, and boy, it has a lot of twists and turns, as well as pay-offs to long-running storylines. I really enjoyed this string of episodes, and if this ended up being the overall finale it would have been fine as well. As it stands a smaller-episode-count Sixth season has been confirmed for next year, so… anyway, let’s take a closer look at how Season 5 ended!

Luke Cage – Season 2 Overall Review

Luke Cage S2

Luke Cage’s second season is a vast improvement over Season 1, or to be more precise, it’s like the great first half of Season 1, but across its whole 13 episode run. A fun new villain with a great, sympathetic backstory (as all good villains have!), an old villain who just keeps getting worse, and a great supporting cast. Let’s waste no more time and take a closer look at the season as a whole!
