Marvel’s Daredevil (2015) and Bosch (2014) – Prime Flix Podcast

There are things happening one cannot explain, going unnoticed to the naked eye. But that’s just Dean’s stomach. Ed on the other hand is full from a nice lunch. The pair discuss the matter as well as the categories for bad guys. Then there’s some streaming stuff, too.

Marvel’s Daredevil (2015) isn’t quite the Batfleck (Devilfleck?) of 2003. Instead, this 13 episode series focuses on Matt Murdock’s (Charlie Cox) early vigilantism and the Hell he’s sworn to protect, or Hell’s Kitchen rather. During the day Murdock is a blind lawyer running a small practice with his friends (Eldin Henson and Deborah Ann Woll), but by night he gallivants about thwarting baddies (Vincent D’Onofrio) with the help of his love interest (Rosario Dawson). It’s all very violent; good stuff.

Bosch (2014) on the other hand is a sanctioned crime-fighter in the midst of a few Michael Connelly mysteries, wrapped in the enigma that is LA. Titus Welliver plays the cop in question with a loner attitude and a penchant for breaking rules. A winner of 2014’s Amazon pilots, the mysteries unfold over the course of 10 episodes and any number of procedural tropes. But don’t write it off just yet, the show’s even hand and slow burn are what keep it interesting. That and the respect!

Marvel’s Daredevil is currently available for streaming on Netflix and Bosch is currently available for streaming on Amazon Prime.
