I am currently 8 episodes in and wow….just wow. Last season brought Mahershala Ali’s Cornell “Cottonmouth” Stokes and Alfre Woodard’s “Mariah Dillard” as true finds and deeply layered villains.  I honestly did not expect this season to surpass either character but have been thus far delighted in being proven wrong. This season brings Mustafa Shakir as ‘Bushmaster’/John Iver and honestly…Marvel/Netflix continues to annihilate with its brilliant character depictions. Bushmaster is presented as initially – distressingly evil – and with typical Marvel aplomb becomes something far greater via exposition and development. I will assuredly be reviewing the series in its entirety once I finish viewing it. In the mean time however….8 eps in…and wow…an amazingly different series from what was offered in the show’s first season….This is a very good thing.
