Hero TV: The Shows we Lost in 2019

While in many ways it is the era of hero tv (and movies), 2019 carved a bloody swath through the shows that were around. This is my look back at the series that didn’t make it to 2020.

Rate this:

Daredevil: A New Napkin

Everything comes to a head here, as Matt Murdock’s crusade runs headlong into Wilson Fisk’s webs and machinations. It’s the true Daredevil versus the Kingpin, with Dex the Faux-Devil running around in the background.

Rate this:

Daredevil: One Last Shot

The end is almost here for Matt, Karen, Foggy and the rest, as Daredevil’s final season ticks down. The Kingpin seems supremely ascendant, and everyone is turning on Nelson, Murdock, and company.

Rate this:

Daredevil: Reunion

       The season, and sadly series, are drawing to an end as everything ramps up. Somehow, Matt is in worse shape than Dex after their epic fight, even though Dex fell about a story to a hard floor and landed on his back. I guess that Daredevil costume really is well armored.

Rate this:

Daredevil: Karen

We’ve gotten a lot of hints about Karen’s backstory. This episode fills in the details, and takes its time to do it. To me, this doesn’t seem to jibe with the hints she herself has dropped about what’s she’s done before, especially her final showdown with Wesley.

Rate this:

Daredevil: Revelations

       If they hadn’t already used “Aftermath” as a title, it would have worked for this one. The two recurring themes were Matt dealing with the surprise at the end of last episode, and the ever-increasing scope and width of Fisk’s web of corruption and influence.
