Daredevil Season 2 (Netflix, Streaming) – Here’s what we’ve all been waiting for. Netflix’s exemplary adaptation of Marvel’s comics series about a blind lawyer (Charlie Cox) who becomes a costumed vigilante by night gears up for a whole new season in Hell’s Kitchen, where Daredevil must face Jon Bernthal‘s The Punisher, Elodie Yung‘s Elektra, and the much-feared syndicate known as The Hand.

Pee-wee’s Big Holiday (Netflix, Streaming) – Paul Reubens‘ immortal, besuited character of the strange yet endearing Pee-wee Herman returns for this Judd Apatow-produced movie for Netflix, wherein our hero is spurred by a musclebound adventurer (Joe Manganiello) to take a vacation and see the world outside his small town.

Sunday, 3/20

The Walking Dead, “Twice as Far” (AMC, 9 p.m.) – Two supply runs are the central focus of the latest episode of AMC’s titanic horror series, both of which are (surprise!) beset by danger in different forms. The ties that bind Alexandria continue to be tested, as the dark figure known as Negan continues to loom large in the background.

Girls, “Queen for Two Days” (HBO, 10 p.m.) – This HBO comedy series has really bloomed in its fifth season, and each episode has only gone to highlight the insight of Lena Dunham‘s series. In the latest episode, Dunham’s Hannah takes a road trip with her mother, while, in Japan, Shoshanna’s (Zosia Mamet) relationship with Yoshi (Hiro Mizushima) only seems to get better and better with each passing day.
