Matt Murdock, with his other senses superhumanly enhanced, fights crime as a blind lawyer by day, and vigilante by night.
"Daredevil" is dark, gritty and violent—but brilliant. It remains a popular show after two seasons. The Daily Beast's Nick Schager wrote this about its second season:
Daredevil seems to have found its niche as not only Marvel’s most brutal offering, but also its most introspective as well. In terms of self-critically investigating its hero’s, and genre’s, inherent contradictions, it’s a show without fear.
Below is the synopsis of "Jessica Jones," per IMDB.
Following the tragic end of her brief superhero career, Jessica Jones tries to rebuild her life as a private investigator, dealing with cases involving people with remarkable abilities in New York City.
Critics revered the storytelling behind "Jessica Jones." She's a woman who struggles with her history of sexual abuse. Jessica's tale of confronting, defeating and overcoming the trauma in her personal life isn't only a heroic story, but a relatable one. NPR's Eric Deggans wrote:
Marvel's success in comics, film and TV has always come from showcasing superheroes with world-class abilities struggling to handle human-size problems. Netflix's Jessica Jones is a proud addition to that pantheon, wrapping one of the best TV shows of the year in a woman's struggle to defeat the abuser who nearly ruined her life.
