For quite a while, superhero shows were more about hard-hitting action and dark, tortured souls (DC’s “Arrow” and Marvel’s “Daredevil” are good examples). But "Supergirl" embraces a more wholesome, hero-forward approach, thanks largely to the charm of Melissa Benoist. “Supergirl,” like many other recent superhero shows, utilizes a team, some with powers and some without. Tyler Hoechlin shows up now and then as an especially noticeable guest star, playing a very un-Henry Cavill version of Superman.

“Daredevil” marked Netflix’s debut in the comic adaptation realm, and many fans feel it has yet to be topped. The fight sequences, often reminiscent of Hong Kong action films, are among the best ever filmed. More than action alone, "Daredevil" shows the inner struggles and crises of faith deep within Matt Murdock (Charlie Cox), the blind lawyer turned hero of Hell’s Kitchen. In some ways, Daredevil is just as much the story of the villainous Kingpin, played superbly by Vincent D’Onofrio, who evokes both sympathy and revulsion in turn.
