New Daredevil Season 2 Trailers Feature the Rise of the Hand

You know, you’re one bad day away from being me.

After a stellar freshman effort, the Devil of Hell’s Kitchen is set to return to NetFlix, this time with Elektra and the Punisher in tow. Now less than a month away, Matt Murdock and company will again star in a marathon of NetFlix binge-bait. And while promotional stuff was slow to appear the last few months, it’s now coming out at a remarkable rate. Posters and trailers and the promise of satisfaction for those who doubted that show runners could duplicate the quality of the first season.

Marvel & NetFlix: Daredevil’s Season 2 Trailer and More Jessica Jones

Marvel’s line of NetFlix shows are taking a more adult approach than Agents of SHIELD or any of their movies have thus far. Their inaugural season, which featured Daredevil was a little darker than some people were expecting, and the upcoming Jessica Jones show is said to easily top that.

This past weekend at the New York Comic Con, NetFlix revealed the first footage for Daredevil‘s second season;

True Blood – #WaitingSucks but a new trailer doesn’t!

I’ve mentioned it before, (here in the S.H.I.E.L.D. trailer write-up) but I love when shows embrace social media, especially when they come up with a clever hashtag with which to brand themselves. There are few better than the HBO vampire show, True Blood, with their #WaitingSucks campaign. In addition to having something that is easy for people to spread around twitter, they put out YouTube videos as well.

HBO’s True Blood Episode 5.08 – “Somebody That I Used to Know”

After the brilliance of last week, I was completely underwhelmed by what I was served during this most recent of episodes.

Sookie’s faerie powers are getting ridiculous.  Now apparently she can read the thoughts of dead people?  It’s too much.  It’s too weird.  And who is this creepy new vampire that killed her parents?  The Scarecrow from Batman Begins?  Seems like he’d be pretty cool to have on the show as more than just a memory, so let’s hope we meet him for real.

HBO’s True Blood 5.07 – “In the Beginning”

It just wouldn’t be True Blood if we didn’t open with someone’s blood everywhere.  This time it’s Roman’s; and his absence creates quite an upheaval at the Authority headquarters.  It’s fascinating how much humanity remains in these vampires.

As soon as one strong figure-head is removed from the picture, how quickly we can all jump on board with another, even if their principles and ideals could not be more different.  Most people want someone at the helm leading them through life more than they want to stand up for what they believe is right.

HBO’s True Blood – First 8 Minutes of Season Four

Tonight after the season finale of Game of Thrones, we were given an extended sneak peek of the upcoming season of True Blood!  This was the first 8 minutes (we had previously seen the first three) of the premiere, which will air next week on HBO.  Here’s the video if you missed it:

SPOILERS AHEAD…

THANK GOD we got the rest of this preview.  I don’t know how ‘Grandpa Lumbergh’ lasted 20 years in fairy land, I could hardly stomach three minutes.

Anyway, after Sookie and her grandfather get reunited, Sookie starts to get glimpses of her surroundings that lead her to believe that things are not all that they seem.  She uses her mind to tell her grandfather that they need to escape, that they are not safe there.  This is always a neat little trick on Earth, where 1 in 2,542,698 people is a telepath.  Sookie forgets, however, that she is in fairy land where mind reading is something everyone can do; so naturally, everyone hears her.  We are then introduced to what I assume to be the Queen of the Fairies, who appears less than thrilled with Sookie and her refusal to take anything at face value.

By now, we’ve deduced along with Sookie that this fairy land is not all that it seems, and that this light fruit is responsible for making everything more beautiful.  This Fairy Queen informs Sookie that because Bill came to the fairy land allegedly searching for more fairy blood to drink, the fairy race is no longer safe.  As a result, all the fairies and humans with fairy descendants must be sealed off in this other realm, which looks a lot less appealing when you’re not tripping on fairy fruit.

Naturally, Sookie tries to escape; but is chased down by the fairies, who now look like trolls and can shoot purple lasers from their hands.  The brother of Sookie’s “fairy godmother” (I guess that would make him her “fairy goduncle“) helps her and Lumbergh escape by talking them off a cliff, which is a portal that will take them home if they jump in before the crazy Fairy Queen seals it off.

Pretty weird.  I’m honestly still on the fence about all this.  Some of the previews of the new season get me really excited.  Others tend to make me really nervous.  Naturally, the scenes that get me the most excited are the ones that focus on the vampires, which I think are the lifeblood (pun intended) of the show.  I would like to see more focus on the vampires, considering they are the center of the premise of the series.  All this nonsense with fairies and witches and werewolves and shapeshifters gets stale.

Again, only time will tell what’s in store on True Blood.  As long as there’s gore and intrigue, I’m on board.  HBO doesn’t usually disappoint!
