I’ll keep this post pretty brief and just do my best to recap all the news of the day, before launching into full analytical mode in the days to come. Today, Netflix released two more TV spots, and a truck load of reviews based on the first five episode of the show made available to select critics started hitting the Internet.
I have glanced at a couple of them, but will actually try to stay away since I don’t want to risk exposing myself to major spoilers. Even though Marvel and Netflix are probably keeping these reviewers on a tight leash, it’s easier to just stay away.
I know that Kuljit Mithra is doing his best to try and post all of the reviews on ManWithoutFear.com, so I suggest you head over there if you don’t want to miss anything. I will just be posting links to some of the major sites. If you do choose to read them, feel free to post comments about them here, just be careful with anything that might count as a spoiler. The general impression, though, has been that this show is getting overwhelmingly positive reviews, which is great to hear!
Below, I’ll just list some clips and links. As always, feel free to weigh in on the news in the comment section!
