Daredevil Series Review

Quote
In the comics, they call him “the man without fear,” and there certainly is fearlessness to this new series debuting April 10 on Netflix.

As my video review above says, Marvel’s Daredevil is the TV offering from the superhero giant that we’ve been waiting for. With Spartacus creator Steven S. DeKnight as showrunner and Boardwalk Empire alum Charlie Cox as the blind protector of a very rotten Big Apple, the 13-episode first season leaves the painful 2003 Ben Affleck movie a very distant memory.

With influences including features The Raid,  District 13 and Taxi Driver, this very stylized Daredevil is hard to take your eyes off – which is a way of warning you that there might be some bingeing in your weekend. To that end, let’s give a shout-out to former showrunner Drew Goddard, who wrote the opening episodes.

So... my level of excitement just jumped a few notches.

My plan is to get Netflix streaming after the season finales in May.  So I'll probably get through DD at the beginning of June.

I tend to agree with Alan Sepinwall's tastes, so his glowing review of Daredevil is another sign it's going to be worth it.

I'm looking forward to checking out the show... but I probably won't get around to it until Justified, Americans, and Game of Thrones are done for the season.
