Marvel's Daredevil

Post by tony ingram on Sat Jul 09, 2016 6:49 pm

Still can't bring myself to watch TV online, but a friend has just sent me eight DVR discs in an unmarked case which, on closer inspection, proved to contain two complete seasons of Daredevil! I've just spent six hours immersed in season one and I've another two discs to go! Utterly compelling stuff, so much better than the movie a few years back... Very Happy

Anyone else?

I haven't seen it. What makes it good?

It's kind of like Gotham in that it's a very character driven show which gives as much attention to the villains (particularly Wilson Fisk, the Kingpin) and supporting cast as it does to Matt Murdock. All of them are believable, and most of them-even Fisk-are written in such a way as to make the viewer see and understand their point of view.

There are also nice flashes of humour. My favourite line so far has to be "So you were trained in the secrets of the martial arts by an old blind man? Isn't that the plot of Kung Fu?"

I still haven't gotten myself to finish the first season, but I've enjoyed it so far. Pretty brutal, but overall well-done. Looking forward to the second season.

I think the brutality works, with this character and his world. It doesn't feel gratuitous.

I agree, but it is pretty graphic. Then, it would be in the real world, wouldn't it?

That's why it works. I love te MCU as a whole, but it's all pretty larger than life. This feels real. Foggy's reaction to finding out that Matt is the masked man-not accepting that he has powers, but simply assuming he's been lying about being blind-feels like it's what would happen. Fisk's backstory is believable. Good people die pointlessly, bad people are shown to be all too human. I actually felt sorry for the Russian gangster when he died!

Good. That's how good drama should make you feel.
