“lol. gideon emery is in daredevil, i recognized him instantly when i…”
Sadly that aspect of the show does not get better.
why is american media so obsessed with russian and east asian mafia doing terrible things in america? like, this is in SO MUCH media. i can’t even be mad at daredevil, because it’s a real thing in tv, comics, books, movies, games, literally all forms of entertainment. to me, it’s so weird, we have our own mafia, our own sex traffickers. but i guess it’s easier to blame our old cold war enemies with a little bonus orientalism thrown in. sigh. there are intriguing elements to the show, so i’ll keep watching, but i am frowny face over this. but to be fair, i am often frowny face with a lot of media (like the 100 and its problem with race and post-colonial thematics, or dragon age and its raging post-colonialism and gender issues, or really anything). i am now trying to decide if i can go to sleep now, or if i will watch another episode….
