dare­devil: sea­son 3 (mul­ti­ple di­rec­tors) opens with the not ex­actly shock­ing news that lawyer-turned-vig­i­lante Matt Mur­dock (Char­lie Cox) did not die at the end of The De­fend­ers last sum­mer, as his fel­low su­per­heroes be­lieved. In­stead, badly in­jured, he wound up re­cov­er­ing at the very or­phan­age where he grew up, his radar sense com­pro­mised by his wounds. Can Matt rally him­self when his arch-en­emy, Wil­son Fisk (Vin­cent D’Onofrio), re­sumes his gen­eral evil­do­ing? Of course he can, though as with most of Marvel’s on­go­ing TV projects, that story takes a very, very long time to un­fold. When that pays off as well as the one in episode 304 – which stages the show’s an­nual hall­way brawl in the mid­dle of an evolv­ing prison riot, all cap­tured in one con­tin­u­ous shot – this sea­son of Dare­devil cap­tures the comics’ syn­the­sis of pulpy ac­tion and self-se­ri­ous Catholi­cism. And I’m still watch­ing, so I guess it’s good enough. But I also know it could be so much bet­ter. All 13 episodes stream­ing Fri­day (Oc­to­ber 19) on Net­flix. nnn (Nor­man Wilner)

Char­lie Cox re­turns for more Dare­devil.
