I enjoyed the series immensely as I gobbled down the season in a day. Two days later, I re-watched the whole thing with the hubby.
I will be asking Santa for the soundtrack, definitely! Old school R&B with current hip hop and rap? And Sharon Jones sending us out on our melancholy way? Just right.
I was another hoping Claire was talking badass Foggy. He works at Hogarth's firm specifically to handle superhuman cases, so I think Luke fits the bill. I am also one of the embarrassed who hoped the gunfight at Harlem's Paradise was how she got her bionic arm. I'm sure there is mayhem in her future, so there can still be time for bionics later. *g*
I was so happy and impressed that Sonia Braga is Claire's mom! No wonder Claire turned out to be such a badass. Also happy to see Sandra Sohn; she was on Miami Vice the last time I saw her, I believe.
For me, while Willis was the more physical threat, Mariah was the eventual Big Bad. She managed to wiggle out of closed nets despite Misty's efforts. I wonder when Mariah will turn against Shades/ Hernan, if she hasn't already started planning.
I was disappointed that Misty lost her cool at Mariah so soon after a) she was disciplined for the same and b) another cop was caught and disciplined for actually beating on a kid! Yeah, the tech guy actually could have waited. His information was important, but if he'd bothered to listen in on the session, he would have realized that Mariah willingly taking a deal was better than breaking the flow of the detective and Inspector's interrogation.
The main folks we are supposed to care about, I mostly did. Pops and Bobby Fish, Misty, Patricia and Lonnie, Aisha, Genghis Connie and her husband, Turk and, of course, Luke himself. Claire I liked since Daredevil S1, so I didn't need to have to like her, as I already did. I was saddened for Luke as he kept finding out Reva had never really told him The Truth. Still? I think Reva did love him and Dr. Burstein is a cynical ass who wouldn't believe Reva actually could love someone, especially someone she could be sending to their potential death. ( Btw, sloppiest hard drive breaking, ever! I know, I know...plot contrivance.)
I loved that Scarfe, while dirty as Pigpen, was one of the best detectives in the department.
I think I enjoyed this slightly more than Jessica Jones, but they are 1a and 1b. Not that I wasn't thrilled with Daredevil, but while I enjoyed season 1 of that show, Season 2 was mixed and Matthew had personal troubles, I wasn't as fond of him as I was in Season 1. With that said, though, I find the Netflix shows more entertaining than a lot of current TV/cable/web shows.
Soooo...they're filming Season 2 of Luke, right? XD
