TV trailers: HBO’s ‘Silicon Valley’ and Netflix’s ‘Daredevil’ & ‘Bloodline’

Mike Judge’s hysterical tech-infused comedy Silicon Valley returns for a second season April 12 on HBO. If you’ve gotten through the first batch of episodes, this minute-long teaser will have you in stitches because it quickly reminds you all about how absurdly funny and crude the show can be.

Jump after the break for trailers from Netflix.

Here’s a first-look at Daredevil, the first of four Marvel properties coming to Netflix. Charlie Cox (Boardwalk Empire) plays Matt Murdock, the blind crimefighting superhero made famous first in the comics and then by Ben Affleck in the 2003 flop. Here’s a quick synopsis provided by the streaming service:

Meet Matt Murdock. Blinded as a boy but imbued with extraordinary senses, Matt fights injustice by day as a respected lawyer and by night as the masked vigilante Daredevil in Hell’s Kitchen, New York. He’ll do anything to make his city a better place, but at what price?

Trailer looks better than good; dare I say great? Of course, if you’re a Marvel fan it doesn’t matter because you’ll gobble it up anyway. Plus, Daredevil is a major piece of the “Everything is connected” pie Marvel has concocted across film and TV. Following the story of Murdock, Netflix will tell tales of Jessica Jones, Iron Fist, and Luke Cage. And when all that’s wrapped, a “Defenders” mini-series will bring them all together, Avengers style.

Daredevil unspools April 10.

Kyle Chandler (Friday Night Lights) returns to the small screen in Bloodline, a new Netflix drama about secrets, lies, and deception.

When the black sheep son of a respected family threatens to expose dark secrets from their past, sibling loyalties are put to the test.

The series hails from Damages creators Todd A. Kessler, Daniel Zelman, and Glenn Kessler and also stars Ben Mendelsohn, Linda Cardellini, Sam Shepard, and Sissy Spacek. All 13 episodes drop March 20.
