Marvel’s Daredevil
Season 2 Episodes 1-3
Created by Drew Goddard
Starring Charlie Cox, Elden Henson, Deborah Ann Woll, Vincent D’Onofrio, Jon Bernthal
Netflix
Premiere date: Friday, March 18th, 2016

Finally, Marvel returns to Netflix with Season 2 of Daredevil. Debuting last year, the 13-episode series, uploaded all at once on the streaming site, put to death terrible memories of the unimpressive Ben Affleck film version. The new Daredevil (Charlie Cox), is blind lawyer Matt Murdock, who along with his best buddy Foggy Nelson (Elden Henson) and victim turned associate Karen (Deborah Ann Woll), run a law firm to help the underprivileged in Hell’s Kitchen. Murdock was blinded as a boy and the chemicals that blinded him also enhanced his other senses to the extreme. After a season long battle with Mob “Kingpin” Wilson Fisk (Vincent D’Onofrio), Murdock finally went from blindfolded ninja costume to the red suited Man With No Fear himself in the season finale. The series received rave reviews from critics and fans and with the series being on Netflix it was allowed to take its time over the 13-episodes whereas a film is forced to squeeze everything into 90-120 minutes. The show’s success launched a future Marvel Netflix empire, as Jessica Jones starring Krysten Ritter was already a huge hit last year, and there are other series slated such as Luke Cage and Iron Fist. The storyline going into season 2 of Daredevil is, who will take over Wilson Fisk’s spot as top crime boss?

Spoilers for the first three episodes below.

  |  @   |  

Immigration Tango
DIRECTED BY: David Burton Morris
WRITTEN BY: David Burton Morris, Martin L. Kelley
STARRING: Elika Portnoy, McCaleb Burnett, Carlos Leon, Ashley Wolfe
Roadside Attractions
RELEASE DATE: February 18th, 2011 (limited)

Immigration is a major hot button topic in this country, which of course makes it the perfect situation to base a romantic comedy around!

Immigration Tango follows two couples — Elana (Elika Portnoy) and Carlos (Carlos Leon) and Mike (McCaleb Burnett) and Betty (Ashley Wolfe) — and best friends in Miami. Elana is Russian and Carlos is Columbian — both in the country on a visa. But when a job interview goes horribly wrong for Elana, immigration is called and she faces deportation.

Pondering any options the group of friends might have, it’s decided that there’s only one way: American citizens Mike and Betty will play couple swap and marry their foreign best friends so they can both stay in the country. Though it might have seemed like the best option at first, being highly illegal it’s not long before the authorities are on to them and making things very complicated. Add to that some unexpected feelings coming to the surface and this quartet of friends have themselves an obstacle course to run.
