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.

Hmm, Shane as The Punisher? I dunno, I guess I don't quite see it, but maybe he can pull it off.

You don't think he can pull of a super-intense psycho?

Well, i tend to think of him as a short , jumpy redneck, not as a taller, darker brooding guy. I haven't really seen him outside of WD though, so his range may surprise me.

The Internets say he's the same height as Charlie Cox (5'10").

He seemed to tower over everyone in Fury (though maybe that was camerawork tricks).  Or maybe it was just that he was intimidating.

I think it is a great casting. Looking forward to it. I just need some Hot Toys figures of Daredevil and Punisher now!

I have faith in Marvel, but feel kinda the same.  Shane was such a hillbilly, wheras Castle seems a bit more Urban to me.

After three Punisher films, I don't really know if the character works anymore.  Simply because The Punisher was very much a product of his times.  He was a New York character when New York was VERY dangerous.  And the whole concept of the everyman turned vigilante seems like one that played much better during the heyday of his books, back in the 1990's.

Are you sure about that?
