The Netflix shows are definitely hard to stop watching. When one episode ends, it doesn’t matter if it is three in the morning, you watch as your cursor mysteriously drifts itself towards the “next episode” button, leaving your body barely aware of what is happening as you continue to dive deeper into the season. Each episode ends leaving you wanting and needing more. Hopefully, Marvel TV is able to maintain a high level of quality, even with their push to get more and more of these series out more quickly.
And more than I was with any of those series, I’m excited to see Luke Cage. Daredevil takes his job way too seriously, and Jessica Jones carried the burden of some very serious subject matter, but Luke Cage is literally unbreakable, so it should be a good time, right? (I mean, yeah, he was seriously injured when he got shot in the head in Jessica Jones, but… he got better!) Luke Cage avoids the Daredevil problem by being reluctant to take on the role of a superhero, much different from Matt Murdoch who is addicted to it. And he avoids the brooding problem of Jessica Jones by… music!
