'Daredevil': Exclusive new photos from Marvel series

Forget Ben Affleck.

Netflix’s Daredevil is “the exact opposite” of Affleck’s much-maligned 2003 bomb, promises showrunner Steven S. DeKnight. Expect the classic origin story to remain unchanged: Blinded as a child, Matt Murdock (Charlie Cox) is a lawyer by day who hunts criminals by night (he apparently doesn’t get much sleep). But this upcoming iteration of Daredevil—the first of Netflix’s multi-show deal with Marvel, which also includes adaptations A.K.A. Jessica Jones, Iron Fist, and Luke Cage—is more influenced by 1970s mean-street films like The French Connection and Taxi Driver than traditional superhero titles.

“There aren’t going to be people flying through the sky; there are no magic hammers,” says Marvel TV chief Jeph Loeb. “We’ve always approached this as a crime drama first, superhero show second.” There’s also more grown-up content here. “It’s a little grittier and edgier than Marvel has gone before,” says DeKnight, best known for the ultra-hardcore Starz series Spartacus, adding, “but we’re not looking to push it to extreme violence or gratuitous nudity.”

What I'm Watching Now: 'Black Mirror,' the best sci-fi show you've never seen

If you’ve already bingewatched every single critically acclaimed show out there, and you’re wondering what to watch next, TV critic Melissa Maerz has a few suggestions. Her column, “What I’m Watching Now,” is devoted to the best underhyped series on television (or Amazon, or Netflix, or whatever iDevice you’re using), whether they’re just premiering or have been lingering on your friends’ season pass queues for years.

Every so often a British drama comes along that’s so brilliant, you must ride a TARDIS to London just to watch. (Note: ”Ride a TARDIS to London” definitely isn’t slang for ”secretly download while pretending to play World of Warcraft,” because that would be wrong.) The cult-favorite sci-fi series Black Mirror is one of those shows, as I said in a rave review last year. (It was one of my favorite TV shows of 2013.) But, thankfully, the TARDIS is no longer necessary: The whole series is now streaming on Netflix. READ FULL STORY

'Arrested Development' creator: A new, chronological version of season 4 is on its way

Whether you loved or hated it, Arrested Development‘s fourth season was a departure for the show, telling its story out of sequence as each episode focused on a single character’s perspective. Sometimes it worked (i.e., Maeby’s episode) and sometimes it didn’t (some of George Sr. or Lindsay’s episodes), but it appears fans will now have a chance to watch the show in a brand-new way.
