Netflix hits home runs with Daredevil and SabrinaDamn it Netflix stop being so damn good. At this point your shows are so good I have a hard time watching anything else. Two shows have been released this October on Netflix that deserve comic book fans attention, frankly both are so good that they deserve EVERYONE's attention. They do however both have comic book connections, which makes them even better for a comic book blog like Toylab to call out.
Daredevil Season 3 the third (and potentially final?) season of Netflix's Partnership with Marvel for its street level heroes. Netflix also landed the new Sabrina show made by the same group that created Riverdale for the CW and the comicbook the Chilling Adventures of Sabrina. The Toylab blog has followed both of these shows and the news coming out for some time now. Sometimes following one of these shows ends badly. Yes I'm talking about you INHUMANS! You can create 52 posts hoping that the Inhumans will get fans looking into Inhuman characters for example only for the show to be such a horrible stinker that no one gets past the first episode (I actually have still yet to finish the entire season). Luckily though, this is not the case with Daredevil or Sabrina both of these shows are flat out brilliant.
Daredevil Season 3
This show gets a 9/10 from Toylab. While this show takes up Matt Murdock after the events of the Defenders it really connects spiritually to the equally brilliant Season 1. Some feel that Daredevil Season 2 lost a little something from the original. I liked Season 2 but must admit that Daredevil characters became polluted by the focus on the Punisher. Those that had issues with Season 2 will be delighted to learn that the Third season really gets back into the feel of Season 1. This season's focus is Daredevil vs the Kingpin. The Kingpin does not disapoint, if anything he is all the more terrifying and captivating in a phenonal performance from vincent d'onofrio. A carefully built up major villain also leads to climatic battle that Daredevil fans have been waiting for since this show started.
For all of this shows greatness one can not help but wonder if this is it. Sad as it may be there are reasons to suspect that this is the end of Daredevil on Netflix. If that does come to pass it ends on a strong note.

The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina
Sabrina gets a 10/10 from Toylab Yes I am not joking this show is awesome!
True, I have really enjoyed Riverdale on the CW. I was initially disapointed that Sabrina would not be joining the Riverdale crew on that show. However, I have to say that my disapointment is over. The goal of this show was to do something darker, but still have enough of the fun, romantic, quality of Sabrina. The show creators wanted to have lots of magic, not a little and felt that it would have breaken Riverdale to add in Sabrina. I think they were right. This shows focus on magic, makes it sweet, and beautiful and terrifying all at the same time. Its not shy about anything but always bold and its story is all the more juicy for it.
How do brutal Demonic monster mix with a cute teen romantic stories, it shouldn't but it does, it works sooooo damn well. This is a show that you will binge through and won't be able to stop. The visuals, the acting, there is a lot of good here, everything is dark, but attractive. Gorgeous really. Your eyes will eat it up even as it terrifies you.
Fans of the old show will definetly find something here to like. No this is not the Sabrina you grew up with, it is something more, deeper, denser and more savory full of dark humor, romance, and even a little death. Your favorite old Sabrina characters are all here along with a few delightful new ones.

How have these shows done from a view perspective? Not sure, I have not seen metrics out for them yet but I also really don't give a damn. What is important, is they are good and they should be watched.
Netflix proves again that it knows what its doing. Check these shows out you will not be disapointed.
