I too am baffled by the terrible "professional reviews". I'm also a
little irritated that they get to watch it early. I love most of these
Netflix lesser known Marvel hero stories some are better than others.
This one is very good. I like the characters and story. It's just
enough action to make me believe it's a superhero story but not so much
it's just one explosion after another. I appreciate the point of these
shows which is to dive into the character, show a complete origin story
just like in a comic book. The acting is good, the stunts are
believable and the story is interesting.
I don't mind that a white guy is playing a white guy from a comic book
about a white guy. I'm reviewing the TV show not the identity politics.
Thank you Marvel and Netflix for deeper, adult story-telling.
