I am a big fan of the Marvel Universe, but, I think Netflix has kinda ruined it to an extent. Don't get me wrong, the premise for their Original Marvel shows are actually quite good, but it's the level of violence that I'm not really able to stomach.
Iron Fist was great, but quite violent, still enjoyable though. Jessica Jones, alright, but unnesessary unsexy animalistic sex scenes, where I actually burst out laughing because I was imagining two animals going at it. There was even one scene with a person's head impailed on the edge of a glass table, which they thought was nessessary to keep going back to over the course of what seemed like 5 minutes. Daredevil season one was very violent, but the second season was unwatchable for me. They took the violence up a few notches completely forgetting the core of what Daredevil is about. I haven't finished it. Then I read a review to see if it mellows out. They talked about a scene with people on meat hooks and confirmed that season 2 abandons all discretion shots in favour of full on gore. WHY??? These aren't horror series, but they've made them pretty much on that line in parts. I can't watch horror, so you can understand my frustration.
Does anyone else think that Netflix shows are tipping on the side of being too violent for the mainstream?
