    I do not exist.

    Finished Daredevil S3 last night. This was next on my list but the comments in this thread have made me think it's not worth my time. Half of me wants to see how it finishes but the over half can't deal with the disappointment.

    This show was incredible for the first two seasons but has gradually declined since then.

    I had some fun with this. The last two episodes were pretty unimpressive, but this season had it's moments.

    Even though Spacey is a trash person, his character was missed and needed. I feel they did the best they could on shifting focus to a character who we didn't really know all that well and had been kind of inconsistent throughout the series.

    That ending though.....not a good way to wrap up anything...

    The thing is I was surprised how much he was brought up. They could've made a really good season with Claire that didn't depend on Frank at all I think but there was just too much crammed in 8 episodes and did anybody wanna see Claire come out on top in this season? I didn't lol

    I agree with how much was crammed in, I feel like if they did 13 eps it would have given the new characters and plot points time to breathe. I also didn't want to see her come out on top, but at the same time didn't want the Shepherd's to win either haha. I kind of wanted Doug to win for a bit, but then he became full on psychopath which was a turn I didn't like.
    I do think them always bringing up Frank was necessary though. It made sense to me that his shadow would hang over her, esp within her first year.

    This didn't feel like a series finale to me. I had planned to watch the whole series again once i finished this last one, but now I probably won't.

    Yeah, I feel like there is no logical way to continue from where they ended, so they did a cop out shock ending just for the sake of it.

    I don't know if I am explaining it right, but I would love to see another episode of what happens after, but I feel like they only gave us that ending because they knew they didn't have to show us anymore and could get away with that.

    Honestly I do not understand the hate for the ending, at all.
    I liked it and thought it was unexpected and exciting. It wrapped up just enough and didn’t leave a gigantic cliff hanger. I dunno. I guess I would like to hear people’s opinions on how they would rather it have gone.

    The first two seasons are great and then it was up and down, I honestly don't think I could make it through a full rewatch

  9. Why Bother?

    Still bothering.

    Haven't finished but I loved Episode 5. That alone was better than all of Season 5 for all I know.

    I dunno, having the president murder someone in the oval office is a pretty big cliffhanger. That fall out from that and what has to happen afterwards makes it fall into that category I think.

    Poetic and noble land mermaid

    I dunno I took it as she stopped an assasination attempt which she has clear evidence of as well as the list of people who were responsible. To me that’s not a cliffhanger. An infuriating cliffhanger for me would have been like, Doug pointing a gun at her and then cut to black. Not wrapping everything up perfectly in a bow is not the same as a cliffhanger lol
  12. Davjs


    Ah, you are talking like The Sopranos type ending huh? I can understand that take.

    I just finish this and I have mixed feelings. Overall, I enjoyed the season and I think they did a good job. I do think it made sense Frank was still a big part of the show. You can’t just erase him from it. I also thought it was a pretty cool twist to have Doug be the one who killed Frank, that even he realized Frank had lost it. I do feel a lot of plots went unresolved but also feel like it’s easy enough to fill in the blanks. Claire has the knife wound and list of names to confirm an assassinstion attempt. She said several times that Doug was the last link thing her to Frank, and the Shepherds will go down with the assassinstion plot. I guess she’ll call off the nuclear strike too. I’m surprised Janine wasn’t killed - I thought for sure when she had that scene in the car that they were gonna off her. But I can’t help but feel like she still has a lot of work to do to win back the good faith of her cabinet. Idk maybe now that she’s not fighting everyone at every turn she will be able to be a better leader.

    As typical with me watching House of Cards, I got lost in some of the plot. I don’t exactly get Doug’s intentions. Was he ever actually planning to kill Claire or was he working for her the whole time? And how did the army guy fit into it all? I didn’t get what his role was.

  15. Finally finished the final season. Can't remember how I felt about the past couple seasons, but I was pretty indifferent on this one.

    Yeah the middle of this season was pretty good, I too would like to see the fallout from everything that happened but I don’t hate the ending. Wish it had gone on longer episode amount-wise. Not bad, not great. Might rewatch the series to make sure there isn’t stuff that I missed.
