One thing I wanted to try and do as I start to say a protracted goodbye to New York was to see more shows here. So it was my great luck that a production of The Crucible is currently running here, starring Ben Whishaw, Saiorse Ronan, Sophie Okonedo, and Ciaran Hinds. I saw it last night with a friend and it was great!

This UK-US-CA tri-partnership TV series starring British Stephen Mangan and American Michael Weston (with swapped hair dos!) and Canadian Rebecca Liddiard tells the story of Harry Houdini & Arthur Conan Doyle, crime fighters!

But seriously. It's really that.

This is mainly for aelfgyfu_mead who wishes somehow she could just watch Foggy and avoid literally everything else. We can all assume Foggy is a good friend and a patient person. So below the cut are more stand out moments for him. I'm pretty sure I did this in proper chronological order.

Spoilers for Season 2Collapse )

Apparently I'm not done thinking about this show. I can't really help it as I try to rework my fic to account for all the new canon that got dumped down on us.

Below are some of my own personal wishes for season 3. Most of it is about relationships rather than plot. The show can do whatever plot but it'd be great if they can work in my relationship wishlist.

I managed to finish the 2nd season of Daredevil. Granted, I skipped some action sequences when they went on too long but I'm usually someone who watches stuff for character rather than action. Anyway, below the cut are spoilers that are just some disjointed observations/thoughts.

Spoilers for the entire seasonCollapse )

Season 2 is almost upon us and with that in mind...

15 Things You Probably Didn't Know About the Daredevil Cast

My main takeaways from this interview were these:

1) The entire cast is so photogenic. Like ridiculously so.

2) They have a pretty clear eye about their characters being difficult people. I mean, of course, I should have just assumed that since they're actors and they probably did some thinking about their characters. But it's always nice to hear that the actors know their characters are largely jerks. I read an interview with Charlie Cox somewhere talking about Matt Murdock and how his main traits were his overwhelmingly huge sense of self-importance, his arrogance that he can and needs to save an entire city, and his general inability to be a good friend to anyone. When I read this, I remember thinking, "Wow, Charlie Cox. You're actually a really good actor because you convey these things so well! And you're so sane about how messed up that is!" For some reason, with this cast in particular, it felt nice to know how different the actors are to their characters. Or rather, how much they don't agree with their characters.

3) Having said the above, tendency to laugh, taking naps, and telling Dad jokes more or less sound like all things Foggy would do so...

Hm, I'm not a huge fan of trailers that insist on having a part 1 and part 2 but what are you going to do?

Thoughts on trailer so spoilers for that?Collapse )
