3 episodes in and I'm enjoying it.

Familiar faces like Foggy, Karen, Ben Urich and Turk all have appeared although the Kingpin and the red suit are, so, far under wraps. All the action has been well choreographed fights but it zips along and acting and script are crisp.

Will be in for the duration!

Kingpin in at the end of episode 3 and dominates episode 4. Nice to see some other characters from the Miller era either named or in person - Wesley, Vanessa and 'Mr Potter' - the Gladiator turned tailor.

How quickly is this being released on Netflix? The first episode only seemed to be a wee bit ago, is it a new episode every week?

I started watching the first episode. Had to pull the curtains so I can see the picture properly due to sunlight reflection on dark visuals.

Then the missus of my household (in this case not MY missus. Thank goodness,) popped her head in the room and exclaimed "Oh god!" Translation: she wants the living room but seeing the room is dark, and I'm watching something she thinks I've settled in and her plans have scuppered.

I could have just stayed there but so as to not foster bad feeling in the household I switched it all off, opened the curtains again and went upstairs to do something else I'd planned for a while*.

Not a big deal but I'm thinking of getting a TV for my room or I could move the one in the living room (which belongs to me) up there but again with the bad feeling. I could watch it on my tablet but it tends to be a bit fuzzy, (although it does improve) but we'll see.

Oh, on Netflix, there's a picture of Daredevil in what appears to be the full red costume. At least it's a dark reddish colour and sports horns which he doesn't appear to be wearing in the first costumed scene of the first episode, so it looks like you guys are right - he will upgrade later.

It's a dark red, but if we're going the realism route, that makes sense for stealth purposes. The bright yellow or red of the comics never quite made sense for someone who relies on surprise and ambush, although it does make a statement. Much like Batman's bright yellow utility belt on an otherwise grey/black costume... altough it does look cool.


*Namely ripping a bunch of CDs so I can listen to them on my phone and MP3 player alarm clock.

I've only watched the first two episodes of Daredevil, but I think it might be my favourite Marvel live action thing by quite a margin. Even better than Roger Corman's Fantastic Four.
You may quote me on that.

Agreed! Though Blade nudges it out.

Episode 2 was excellent, and that scene so simple to Oldboy's famous hammer fight scene.

A nice surprise for me at least.

There have been many series I've liked that went the way of the dodo.

(I have a silly image now of a superhero in a fat bird costume. What a rubbish superhero that would be...)
