I do. It always feels like a generic city to me as well. Daredevil is one of my favorite comic characters, so I will probably watch his seasons. But even those are getting to me a bit. The hand-wringing and brooding is a bit too much. But back to your point, they go on and on about how he is a champion for Hell's Kitchen. Hell's Kitchen needs him. etc etc. But until the end of the second season (when Matt is walking through the town in daylight and recognizing the people he has helped) it never seemed like anyone really cared whethere DD was there or not. They needed more scenes like the one I mentioned before to make us care about Hell's Kitchen, flesh it out and give it personality. Its a pretty vital misstep if you ask me.It's funny one of the things that always bugs me about these shows is the location. They hammer home the location, over and over – Hell's Kitchen, Harlem, New York. But the location never feels authentic, it feels like a generic city. Any one have this problem?
Sneaky PeteOn Netflix: "Halt and Catch Fire" is well worth your time, and gets better the deeper you go. I just finished "Ozark" and really enjoyed it.On Amazon: My last very good binge was "I Love Dick". "Catastrophe" is fantastic and "Fleabag" is good, but dark. "Man in the High Castle" was very interesting, though the plot was a bit blah. "Bosch" I find very mixed. The first season was cliche-central. Later seasons a bit better. Billy Bob's show, "Goliath" was solid.
I forget what it was called, but there's another good show on Amazon - with Giovanni Ribisi playing a scam artist who's trying to become an honest person?
