Storyline

As a child Matt Murdock was blinded by a chemical spill in a freak accident. Instead of limiting him it gave him superhuman senses that enabled him to see the world in a unique and powerful way. Now he uses these powers to deliver justice, not only as a lawyer in his own law firm, but also as vigilante at night, stalking the streets of Hell's Kitchen as Daredevil, the man without fear.

Goofs

Throughout the series, when adult Matt is shown reading, he moves both index fingertips across the page at the same time. A blind person places the left index fingertip at the edge of the line and keeps it stationary, to hold the place. Otherwise, the right index fingertip (which is the one that moves across the line of Braille) might not return to the start of the next line properly (it might get "lost" and skip a line or start one that had already been read). Child Matt does this more correctly than Adult Matt does. See more »

Quotes

Daredevil: Why are you doing this?
Frank Castle: 'Cause I think you're a half-measure. I think you're a man who can't finish the job. I think that you're a coward.

Want the short version? Watch it.

What can I say? Growing up I was a massive Daredevil fan but in my later years fell from grace on that front. After watching the first episode of Daredevil, though? I'm all in.

Acting was great. Was it perfect? No, but that, like this whole review, is an opinion. I thought Charlie Cox was great as Matt Murdock and seeing as I haven't seen Elden Henson since the Mighty Ducks days and The Mighty, he was also really good.

The action sequences were tense and I honestly feared for Matt's life in some scenario's, which, as you all know, is damn near impossible when making a superhero movie or television show. I mean, c'mon. Are they ever REALLY in trouble? In this case, it felt like he was.

I've heard some people have compared this to the likes of Arrow and I can see that, but is that a bad thing? Don't get me wrong, it definitely differs from Arrow, but the approach to the series is ALMOST in the same vein. Again, NOT a bad thing.

All in all, I will be watching the rest of the series and I will be patiently waiting for Season 2. This show is truly a sight to see, unless your Matt Murdock... No? Alright, here's my rating.

8.8/10. Superb.
