This fortnight, Nick and Alastair return to the Defenderverse for the full Marvel’s Daredevil season 3 experience, as sixteen-year-old Matt Murdock dresses in black and throws a great big tantrum.
But first, they look at such recent consumptions as the movie Peterloo by Mike Leigh, which Alastair has written more about on his blog, and Netflix’s Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, a show you may hear about again in MFV-land soon.
And then it’s into the dungeon with Daredevil (8:37) as Nick and Alastair find out whether this new season can reinvigorate the show by putting the Kingpin back on centre-stage, complete with inevitable disparaging remarks about past storylines involving the Hand.
Moderate spoilers throughout, pushing into hardcore ending details from 32:07 onwards. Oh, and if you’re into this topic, you may enjoy this bonus clip from the MFV #74 recording where Alastair found out Luke Cage was cancelled live on air.
For their follow-up question, they ask: does knowing the source comic change the viewing experience? (37:15) Of course, they’re doing this because the new Daredevil season draws heavily on classic comics storyline Born Again, which Nick and Alastair both read back in MFV #43.
