Apparently Daredevil season 3 came out today on Netflix and I had no idea. I didn't receive a notification regarding a new season coming out so this took me by surprise. I know what I'll be doing this weekend then! Haven't watched Daredevil in years now.

Has anyone started watching this new season yet?

@JohnnyShoulder I’ve watched all of the episodes of The Haunting Of Hill House and absolutely loved it, totally invested in all the characters and their various arcs. Have you managed to watch the rest of it? I know it’s all subjective, but I personally really enjoy the slow burn/world building approach, and I think this show does a phenomenal job in it’s story telling. If you’ve the desire to stick with it and watch all the episodes, everything and everyone gets crossed referenced and explained, whilst also leaving just enough ambiguity to engage the imagination. I felt anxious and fearful, as well as joyful and saddened by some story arcs. I mean, seriously sad....I balled my eyes out at some parts 😭. I really can’t praise the show enough. Amazing experience 👍

@jacobia Not watched any more, but have read a review which said the second half ramps up then tension and scares. My mate in watched the first episode and said he was proper spooked by it! So either he is a right wimp or I'm pretty hardcore lol.

It has defo jumped up my watch list from 'maybe when I've watched everything else to 'must watch after the next season I've finished'. Which will be pretty soon. I'm always willing to stick with stuff that doesn't immediately click.

Glad you enjoyed it, sounds really promising!

@JohnnyShoulder As far as the storytelling goes, what’s impressed me the most is how it weaves the modern day events to those in the past, when the family lived in Hill House, jumping back and forth to give context. And like I said, because I was totally invested in the story and felt empathy with all the main characters, plus I’m a big softy, I found parts to be really emotional. First ☹️, then 😢 with 😥, followed by 😭😭😭. Hopefully you’ll like it too...let me know ☺️

@KALofKRYPTON All these MCU Netflix cancellations just make me grateful Jessica Jones lived to fight another day, even if season 2 wasn't all that great.

@Tjuz Luke Cage season 2 was great too.

I think this may be the start of Disney pulling everything for their own streaming service.

@KALofKRYPTON I can't say I've seen Luke Cage. I didn't really have any interest in doing so after his character not really clicking with me in Jessica Jones. Good to hear it was a great show though, and it's definitely sad for all the MCU Netflix fans that these shows seem like they're being cancelled in a haste! I hope Jessica Jones doesn't become the next victim, but after these two shows being cancelled I can't see it not being cancelled after season 3.

Id be happy with just Jessica Jones, the rest are just okay/good, JJ Season 1 had the best writing.

Looks like Luke Cage has been cancelled as well. It's a shame, the series had some really good villains like Cottonmouth and Bushmaster. Didn't like Mariah and Shades but those two, Billy Russo and Kingpin were my favourite villains in Netflix's Marvel series.

@KALofKRYPTON probably although i'll be honest i wasn't impressed by ANY of the Marvel Netflix shows, they all seemed to be lacking something

but like you said it's probably to do with Disney creating their own streaming service

Like Iron Fist, I thought the weakest part of Luke Cage was the main character himself with the supporting cast being the stars. Haven't even watched S2 yet so I can't claim to be disappointed but I would like another Defenders season. Best thing about Luke Cage is the intro music, just awesome.

@beemo The second season of Luke Cage is easily the best of all of Marvel shows so far.

In other TV news; the latest Doctor Who episode 'Rosa' was handled far, far better than I expected. Even among the slightly preachy messaging - I genuinely felt that it was a largely well done return to the show's distant educational past! It also took me ages to spot who the villain was - he was in Revenge!

Also, if you can access BBC iPlayer - watch Informer. It's brilliant!

@KALofKRYPTON you know what i liked about Rosa, it's didn't sugercoat it like the previous seasons did, it showed history as it was instead of through the eyes of today and that is a much better way to show just why it was bad and why it needs to change than pretending everything was better than it was like they did during the Tennant/Smith/Capaldi eras

we shouldn't be editing history in our TV, Films and Video Games otherwise we will never learn from the mistakes of the past

@FullbringIchigo Spiders and Chris Noth!!

What's the betting that the spiders are 'misunderstood' in some way?

@KALofKRYPTON i hope not, i want it to be a proper invasion

this new series is going very old school Who in the way it's telling it's stories and i like it, falling back on the Tennant tropes would be a step in the wrong direction if you ask me

@FullbringIchigo I also hope Revenge bloke is a recurring villain, I also hope that if he is a recurring villain he doesn't actually tie back to River Song.

@KALofKRYPTON i would like him to be a recurring Villain, maybe he is the Rani as the Master has been kind of rehabilitated (and if the Master and Doctor can change gender then why can't the Rani)

@FullbringIchigo Did you not see the last Master/Missy story?

I hope he's not a Timelord at all - a genuine threat for sure, but not a Timelord.
