Yeah I'd definitely agree that, on the whole, this season was a lot better than season 1. There were some pacing issues across the whole thing but they were carried by the fact that all of the main actors were really solid - especially Alfre Woodard who was the standout. Having the main antagonist switch back and forth between Maria and Bushmaster was a good way to make sure we don't get tired of the same villain throughout the season, but also let us get a lot of time exploring those characters and who they actually are.
The ending... I like the idea, not sure about the execution. The fact that it all happened in about 10 minutes was a bit weird, I think they could have spent more time on that.
It was nice to have an Iron Fist that wasn't utterly terrible in every way.
Really the one thing that stands out to me as not really working was Misty's robot arm. I know it makes sense to have technology like that in a world with things like Iron Man's suit and The Vision, but in the context of the show - which generally keeps things pretty realistic and grounded (sans a magic glowing hand) - having a super advanced robot arm that can do basically everything a real arm can do just came a bit out of nowhere. Especially since Misty gets the hang of it in only a few episodes (which is what, a few days - a week? - in the timeline of this season?). It's a shame as the episodes that dealt with her actually getting used to losing the arm and coping with that were handled really well I thought, so it was a shame to lose all of that so quickly.
BUT YEAH IT WAS GOOD PEOPLE KEEP SHOOTING HIM AND HE MUST BUY SO MANY HOODIES.
The first instinct is to think that it's something to do with the Disney streaming service; either Netflix cancelling it out of spite or Marvel wanting the character back to launch a new show on that service. But the article says it was down to "creativer differences" (they were already working on season 3) so who fucking knows. If they cancel Daredevil we know something's up (Punisher and Jessica Jones have seasons either filming or completed so we won't know about them for months.)
STILL A CHANCE THEY COULD DO A HEROES FOR HIRE SHOW THOUGH RIGHT GUYS.
