And So Begins Season Three

Charlie Cox is a great actor who has become the living embodiment of the character so famed from the comic books. I was so impressed with the first two seasons of this Netflix gem and from the start I knew that Season 3 could be the best one ever. All the actors are on top of their game and the production looks amazing and the fight choreography has all it's traditional imagination and brutality.

Born Again is one of the classic Daredevil stories. Written by Frank Miller it tells the tale of the rise and fall of Daredevil. After surviving the collapse of a building with Elektra, Matt must rebuild his life from nothing. No powers, no friends, no life and now, apparantly no God. Probably the worst thing Matt could lose is his faith and right now he has no belief left to give. His greatest enemy is also ready to begin his master plan and that and other events cause Matt to come 'back from the dead' as it were.

Even Karen Page is burdened with the knowledge of Matt's alter ego, Daredevil. She is the only one who believes that Matt is still alive. Everyone seems to want the vigilante gone and for all intents and purposes, he is gone. Oh and he hates God which makes him perfect metal for the forge. I will enjoy watching this one develop I think. I do like the slow burn and Netflix is the master of this kind of half season storytelling.

No filler, just story and a damn good story it is. And there is Bullseye plus the brilliant return of Vincent D'Nofrio as Wilson Fisk. This stuff is as good at it gets on TV.

I've got this series on my "must watch sometime" list. Hopefully I'll get to it within the foreseeable future, but there's a shit ton of stuff on that list!

You will really like it but I know what you mean about having too much to watch. I hate having to make choices and be more selective. All three seasons of this one are great.

Very happy with the season. Tight story, great action and character development. Hope it doesn’t get the axe like Luke and Danny.
