Lightbulb Ranking performances from the Netfix/Marvel shows.

Since the quality of shows varied pretty widely, I think a more interesting question is that which performances did you like the most? Here are my top ten:

1. Charlie Cox as Daredevil
2. Vincent D'Onoforio as Kingpin
3. Jon Bernthal as The Punisher
4. David Tennant as Kilgrave
5. Jessica Henwick as Colleen Wing
6. Scott Glenn as Stick
7. Alice Eve as Typhoid Mary
8. Rosario Dawson as Night Nurse
9. Mike Colter as Luke Cage
10. Rob Morgan as Turk

Feel free to post as long a list as you like. Also post about the ones you hated, if you want.

It's hard for me to separate characters I've enjoyed from the actual performances by the actors.

My top ten ranked:

1. Charlie Cox as Matt Murdock / Daredevil is unquestionably my favorite performance.

2. David Tennant as Kevin Thompson / Kilgrave is the best Marvel villain in the MCU not just in the Netfilx shows.

3. Mahershala Ali as Cornell “Cottonmouth” Stokes. Great performance and a multi-layered character. The best part of season 1 of Luke Cage.

4. Vincent D'Onofrio as Wilson Fisk/ Kingpin.

5. Jon Bernthal as Frank Castle / Punisher

6. Deborah Ann Woll as Karen Page

7. ***Wilson Bethel as Benjamin Poindexter / Bullseye*** - almost forgot him, but the choices made for the character and his performance were outstanding.

8. Jessica Henwick as Colleen Wing. The best part of season 1 of Iron Fist.

9. Krysten Ritter as Jessica Jones

10. Rachael Taylor as Patricia “Trish” Walker

11. Élodie Yung as Elektra Natchios

The only actor I strongly disliked was Finn Jones as Daniel Rand/ Iron Fist. I had such high hopes for the series and while he wasn't the only problem with the show, he was a big part of why it didn't work for me.

The reason Ben Poindexter is not on my list is that Bethel was too damn good. He made Bullseye, a sigularly evil guy, almost sympathetic.

I liked Deborah. She was great.

For some reason the Ritter-Taylor dynamic didn't work for me, though. It's a shame because Jessica Jones is one of my favorite newer characters.

Elektra was simply unrecognizable. Don't know how much of that is on Elodie Yung, but her smugness didn't help.
