I can't wait for the flood of posts saying how much better a Netflix show is than Agents of SHIELD. Just like old times.

Daredevil is better than Avengers: Age of Ultron.

To be fair, it's hard to find anything period that isn't better than Agents of SHIELD.

Gotham? A kick in the teeth? Adam Sandler movies?

Hmm, GOTHAM vs. SHIELD. That's a tough one.

GOTHAM is bad, but it's badness mainly stems from a horribly flawed premise and it at least fails while taking some big swings at the material. SHIELD took a premise that should've been impossible to fuck up and somehow managed to make the most boring, perfunctory bit of corporate synergy possible.

GOTHAM has a way better cast, too. No matter how bad the story around him is, Robin Lord Taylor is a treat each and every week as Penguin (I swear, at one point last season, it must have become a game in the writer's room to come up with dumb situations to put him in, and he crushed it every time). And there has never been more on point casting than Donal Logue as Bullock. Sure, Jada sucked, but at least she was going for something in her performance, unlike the Sears catalogue models who recite their lines adequately on SHIELD.

GOTHAM also has an interesting visual aesthetic, as opposed to Generic Network Procedural #37843920 with a slightly bigger special effects budget.

This could describe almost every Jada Pinkett performance post A Different World.

 

Gotham has Jessica Lucas this season, and I like looking at Jessica Lucas. So yeah, I'm going to stick around until her character gets killed off. Then, it's arrivederci.

 

AoS? Didn't hate it or love it. I stopped watching it at some point, and I have no desire to sit through forty plus episodes of what I was indifferent about. I'll pass.

The only reason I watched the second half of Gotham series 1 was because I like looking at Morena Baccarin, so there's that (although it wasn't enough to keep me watching Homeland). But then Agents o'Shield doesn't really collapse on that score... though why they felt the need to transform the beautiful Ruth Negga into a bipedal hedgehog is a mystery.

Ron Jeremy? Shit, I'd watch the show that allowed that shit.

In the Marvel universe, Howard Stark invented them gun sights years before the guy who actually invented them did in this universe.

Now I want every Marvel show to have a video version of Stan Lee's Soapbox with Stan handing out no-prizes and name-dropping Irving Forbush.

*sigh*

Walther PPKs didn't have "white dot" sights in 1946-47.

There also weren't Super Soldiers in 1942 or Army Sgts. who wore bowler hats and had big orange mustaches.

Daredevil season 2 is gonna be BUSY. The Punisher and Elektra are the big 2, but Melvin Potter is still floating around. Vanessa Fisk will surely play into it. And they could always bring back Wilson and Leland Owlsey too (though I doubt it on Owlsey ever and probably not this season for Wilson).

Is Bullseye confirmed to be in it also? They should probably hold off on him for another season. Maybe tease him at the very end.

Oh, and there's whatever the fuck was going on with Stick when we saw him last. And maybe more of The Hand.

Te only guy that would be better than Donal Logue as Bullock would be Bob Hoskins and that ain't happening for obvious reasons

There's also Madam Gao, though I suspect that will end up in Iron Fist, not Daredevil.
