Welcome to the Comparative Opinions podcast! A week after release, hosts Holly and David feel like they got to The Defenders quickly but also probably not as quickly as others! Spoiler-free to start and the spoilers abound as they talk about what they liked about the show, what they didn’t, and Iron Fist, who draws a whole lot of ire.
So it only took us a little less than a week to finish all 13 episodes of Daredevil season 2 because that is as quickly as we could get through it. This season definitely starts with a bang because the action is already in progress in some respects. This season we get introduced not only to Frank Castle aka the Punisher, but also Elektra. This is also the season that Foggy and Karen really get to shine.
The first season of Daredevil was great because it introduced us to the character and the reason that he was needed in Hell’s Kitchen. In Season 2 we examine the different paths Daredevil could have taken and the toll that being a vigilante takes on the people in his life. (Spoilers to follow for Season 2 of Daredevil!)
