Whaaat?

Sans the helmet, it was pretty on-point


Just a shame we didn't see Cottonmouth in-costume, but he was a vastly different character in the show, though.

It was comic accurate. But that **** is for Marvel movies, not their grounded realistic ADULT Netflix shows.

I gotta disagree with you there. It's far too few costumes in the Netflix series, while its adult oriented it is still superheroes and in the MCU

I didn't mind Jessica never was Jewel, Purple Man wasn't purple and Luke's OG threads was just a 5 second cameo. It's fine, Luke hasn't worn that outfit in years, and Jessica as Jewel would have boggled down the show a lot. But we need more spandex. I really hope Iron Fist gets his costume faster then Daredevil did.

We need costumes that don't LOOK like comic book costumes. Daredevil looks fine.

But Diamondback looked like... he looked like Diggle from "Arrow." I mean, if the character had been any good, I wouldn't hate the costume so much. But bad overacting with cliche writing AND a doofus costume?

Diamondback was the one dealbreaker for me in this show. And he survived for Season 2?

Couldn't really be let down by Luke Cage on account of the fact that I knew jack and squat about the character prior to reading "Alias." I will say that I loved him in Jessica Jones, and in this. That actor is just...he's so great and oh so easy on the eyes.

Regarding the show...
Spoiler:

I found the pacing very interesting. It was a slow burn the whole way through, which I was not entirely expecting, but settled into as the story progressed.

I will say that it made me want to rewatch Jessica Jones, because I couldn't remember some key stuff from there that I think would have made it easier for me to just sit and let the story wash over me.

I couldn't help shake the feeling that I was missing a whole lot of context. Can someone with any familiarity with Blaxploitation flicks from the 70s let me know how this worked as a homage?

Can't get enough of the soundtrack, and am really looking forward to throwing money at that when it comes out.


I liked it a lot, probably a bit more than Jessica Jones, but that's only really because I loved Alias a whole bunch.

I was shocked when I heard it. Never for a second did I ever expect, even on the "more adult" Netflix shows, that anyone would ever utter that. But no, it's great. And it would absolutely be dishonest to not include it.

Yeah...the pearl clutching over the inclusion of that word is almost as funny as the people upset about how there were so many Black people on the screen.

Mike Colter is amazing, so much charisma. When they first announced him to play Luke, I was a little miffed it wasn't Terry Crews. But Mike easily won me over.

Both Daredevil seasons were good to great, but Jessica Jones and Luke Cage have MATTERED. THAT has been incredible. I want more of this.

Same.
100% the same.

Agreed.
I loved the first season of Daredevil, and the second I appreciated because I have an unhealthy affection for Murdock's smug punchable face. Like...the more smug and "I'm the smartest person in this room" he is, the more I love him. It's a sickness.

But season 2 was kind of a wet hot mess pacing wise.
Spoiler:
There was a lot of stuff I liked in it, but it was so inconsistent. I almost wish they'd have split Electra and Punisher up into two separate seasons. I only really enjoyed the ninja stuff on account of the TMNT connection.


But Jones and Cage have something to say, and do it so stylistically well.

When I think about it really hard, I can remember some pretty on-point stuff regarding Catholicism, the law, justice, religion, killing, et al from Daredevil Season 1. But it didn't really leave much of a lasting impact on me. Quite possibly because we've seen those types of themes and ideas before.

There's never been anything even close to Jessica Jones or Luke Cage before. It's nothing short of historic.

As far as Daredevil Season 2... I liked it better than most, but it wasn't great. It was decent, with a phenomenal cast. But Elektra and Punisher absolutely should've been two different seasons. Luke Cage made the same mistake with Diamondback and the rest of the antagonists.

& the "pearl clutching" about it in this thread ironically comes from someone whose Facebook was covered in confederate flags. Interesting.

I did notice that but I'm not too well-versed in Marvel. What/who is it foreshadowing/referencing?

I think he thinks that drawn picture on the wall is one of those lego Ninjago things he is into.

I thought that might be the case, given who posted it. Does it hold any actual weight in-universe, though?
