Daredevil (TV)

Charlie Cox does a fantastic job playing Matt Murdoch - lawyer by day and vigilante pugilist  by night. For the most part he hides his super human senses behind his blindness, just as he tries to keep his two lives separate from each other.

With a strong script, actors, cinematography, as well as fantastic fight scenes this is easily my favorite of the Marvel Universe shows. Yes, there are some parts that falter quite badly (looking at you S2 Elektra), but for the most part it is very enjoyable mainly due to Daredevil getting fantastic foils.

He's like a punching bag that keeps coming back for more.

These are in the form of Vincent D'Onofrio's Kingpin, Jon Bernthal's Punisher, and Wilson Bethel's Bullseye to name a few. My only other complaint is the conversations in foreign languages (especially early on) - I don't mind if a conversation is all in French or Japanese, but don't make one character speak one language and the other speaking English. It's just so unnatural!

Maybe that's part of the reason the show got cancelled after 3 seasons? Or maybe like Iron Fist and Luke Cage he just got Thanos-ed? Who knows! It's still worth a watch if you haven't seen it already. As a bonus the series ends on a non-cliffhanger so thumbs up for that!

Special thanks to Redbeard for giving me a heads up about the cancellation of this series.


  1. Well, I'm not exactly happy that they cancelled it, but that's the breaks.

    1. I don't think anyone is happy with this cancellation!
