Netflix/Marvel keeps experimenting, and it was a success once again
9 March 2018 | by buzurg007See all my reviews

This is going to be review of entire season, because I think that Netflix/Marvel shows have very unique formula to them, where I can never judge these shows one episode at a time. Ok, imagine a painting, and imagine that you are looking only at parts and reviewing it one by one, in my opinion it will ruin the impression of painting as a whole. That's how I see Netflix/Marvel shows, as one whole painting. They are constructed this way, and I think they should be viewed as such.

Some people are going to hate this show, but I rated it 10 out of 10, why you ask? Well, this is one of the most unique superhero stories I've witnessed, yes, even more unique than first season. An absolute breathe of fresh air, and I advice you to watch till the end. Ok, if you are here for action - stop watching. If you are here for thrilling adrenaline rush - stop watching. This season had even less action than first, weird huh? Shouldn't second season be bigger? Well, let me describe you my experience:

At first, I was pumped. Then I was confused. Then I got really confused and was asking myself - "Where this is going?". But then at episode 11 realization came to me, that I should stop expecting a huge explosion and instead concentrate on what's going on in the show right now. And I realized that this is what this season is about. Not conspiracies, not mystery, not finding a killer or saving the world, but about these characters. Because guys, this season is entirely a one huge character work. This is when I changed my focus and season suddenly went from ok to brilliant. Because I tell you at the end of the road, I was left in tears, pay off at the end was something amazing. And no, don't expect explosions, they never happen, well spoilers, maybe once.

To simplify, this season is very, and I mean very personal. It's not a story about saving tonnes, it's not a story about stopping villains, no, it's a story about flawed people, their personal demons, emotional compromises, about family, friends, etc. And in the end, it is story about Jessica, not as superpowered badass, but as a human being who lost her path, and has to find it again. It was a very emotional season, and one of my favorites among MCU TV shows, and I hope at least some would appreciate it. Acting, directing, storytelling, writing - it's all top notch. And as I said, character work is nothing short of brilliant. Please, don't expect big action, just watch it for what it is, a personal and relatable ride, with messed up "superhero" in the lead role.
