Rahul is a TV addict who can never get enough of good shows. His all-time favorites are 'The Wire', 'Breaking Bad', and 'The Sopranos.'

Daredevil is Marvel’s best work yet. Some people think this show is a bit overrated, and I agree with them to some extent. You have to agree, however, that it’s one of the best superhero TV shows ever produced. Daredevil easily surpasses rest of the Marvel’s and DC’s offerings.

The plot revolves around Matt Murdock, who balances his life of an ordinary, blind lawyer in the daylight and a fearless vigilante at nights.

Being a big fan of this show, I have compiled a list of some must-watch superhero TV shows like Daredevil. Let’s take a look -

How would you rate Daredevil out of 5 stars?

Arrow

Arrow is to superhero TV shows what Game of Thrones is to Fantasy TV shows. It explores Oliver Queen painful journey to become a vigilante hero from a spoiled brat while he was stranded on an island. He manages to get out of there after 5 long years, coming back home better and stronger than ever with a different outlook on life.

Back home, he finds his city in even worse state than what it was 5 years ago. So he decides to weed out all those who have failed the city while keeping his vigilante role a secret from everyone. Time and again, flashbacks take us back to the island where he was stranded on that island, explain how he managed to stay alive and became what he is today.

While Arrow is still a little rough around the edges, it has reached a point where all the complaints I have are minor at best. So if you are looking for some good superhero shows like Daredevil, Arrow should be your best bet.

The Flash

With superhero shows, it usually takes a good couple of episodes to get into groove. Sometimes, it may even take a better part of a season before it becomes and good. It takes times as actors set into their roles.

The Flash never really had to deal with any of that. We already knew Barry, his superpowers and what made him tick from the show Arrow. So when they announced that they are doing a spin-off of Arrow, most of us already knew what to expect. It never really needed to live up to any expectations or grow into something better. The Flash simply started strong and kept building on the momentum till the finale. The show only got better in the course of seven months. It’s not a surprise considering several writers and producers of Arrow were also working on The Flash.

The Flash is never afraid to delve deep into the wild and weird elements of DC lore. While some episodes suffer from underdeveloped villains and forced romances, for the most part, it remains grounded, thanks to an experienced writing and producing team. On the whole, the quality of The Flash is really high. It might be too early to say how it’s going to turn pout in rest of the seasons, but season 1 remains one of the best TV shows like Daredevil.

Legends Of Tomorrow

Legends of Tomorrow takes place in a time where the world is on the verge of an impending apocalypse. It’s so big that someone has to time travel to the past and gather a group of superheroes to prevent the upcoming disaster. Fighting alone is not enough anymore.

Featuring various superheroes from other DC worlds, Legends of Tomorrow promises to be bigger and better than anything we have ever seen. Luckily, we won’t have to wait long as it’s going to air sometime in early 2016. So keep an eye out for it.

Agents Of Shied

I have to admit that this show didn’t look like it’s going anywhere during first few weeks. The characters were bland, the plot seems uninteresting and the acting was mediocre at best. Out of boredom, though, I continued to follow Agent of Shield, and I am glad I did.


The chemistry between characters get a lot more intriguing later on in episodes as the plotline becomes more complex and unpredictable. As the plotline develops and delves deeper, new riveting questions are raised that will keep you coming back for answers.

They took a lot of time to work out the kinks, but looking back at initial episodes now, I feel it was necessary to give characters some breathing time in the beginning and slowly build up the tension. The thing with AOS is that it requires a lot of patience. You can’t expect a blast from this show in the beginning. Get through the first half of the first season, though, and you are in for a treat. I am glad they took a lot of time to build up the characters and plot. How else setting up such a rich world with so many complex characters would have been possible? If you are looking for some amazing TV shows like Daredevil, I would wholeheartedly recommend Agents of Shield.

Gotham

At first I didn’t know if it’s going to worth watching at all. A prequel to Batman? It sounded like a recipe for disaster. How is this going to work? To my surprise, things began to unfold rather quickly and make sense. Gotham is more in line with Batman movies than you think.

Gotham is a mess right now. Current heroes are not enough to weed all the bad guys out. There are way too many of them, but it works for this TV show as more heroes would be introduced in the next seasons (hopefully). One can only guess that Gotham city is only going to get messier in the next couple of seasons. And that’s not a bad thing for its viewers as we will have more action on screen than the first season, which kind of fell short of the mark.

Nevertheless, with a great casting and producing team, things are looking great for Gotham as the show heads on to its next season. Be sure to check it out if you are looking for some good TV shows like Daredevil.

Person of Interest

Without spoiling much, Person of interest takes place in New York city, a city still recovering from the 9/11 attacks. Everyone is under surveillance. With the help of a machine that can identify potential murderers, the creator of that machine and an ex-assassin take on a mission to prevent as many crimes as can before they happen.

The plot is more in line with “Minority Report”, but with less focus on sci-fi. Both this TV show and that movie focus on preventing crimes before they happen with the help of technology. However, as things progress in the show, it evolves into much more than a weekly prevent-the-homicide show. Person of Interest has come from being a procedurally generated show to being a show that focuses on each individual character and makes effort to emotionally invest us in them. And they have done a pretty damn good job at that.

Person of Interest may not be the next Lost, but it’s still a pretty smart action thriller with a lot of nail-biting twists and suspense. If you don’t like the first couple of episodes, keep going, and you’ll be glad you did. It takes its time to get into the groove, but the payoff for your patience is rewarded with some riveting stuff later on. You mustn’t miss out on it if you are looking for a good show like Daredevil.
