So the new Daredevil show from Marvel just hit Netflix around to day and I thought I’d give you my first impressions on the show after watching the first 2 or 3 episodes. So here we go!
In case you weren’t aware this is yet another MCU related TV show (the first of many coming to Netflix), but don’t expect this to be as child-friendly as any of the movies have been so far. No it’s not that there’s anything content-wise so far that I think would be to much for kids, but the overall tone and subject matter is more complex then what we’ve seen before from the MCU. And I gotta say, I’m kinda digging it! The shows whole existence adds a unique layer to the MCU I don’t think we’ve seen before, and it’s one I hope gets expanded upon greatly. I dunno if Daredevil’s like gonna team up with Captain America or Spider-man someday, but I hope he does!
Speaking of Daredevil, Matt Murdock has been really well cast. This is easily the best version of him we’ve seen to date (it’s not like he’s had much competition) and the supporting cast is really good to. The direction on this show is really good too, and the lighting adds so much to the tone. I was a bit annoyed at how it sometimes got to the point where you couldn’t see anything during the action scene’s, but I haven’t noticed this problem often and hopefully it will be fixed by later episodes. Daredevils backstory is explained in flashbacks throughout the first 2 episodes, and if anything it’s even more interesting then the main plot, so no problems there. If there’s one standout moment that might make the whole show worth checking out, it’s the ending of the second episode; which feels like it might be more at home in a movie like “Killing them Softly” or “Drive” then anything else. I won’t spoil it, but trust me, it’s worth it.
So overall, if you have a Netflix account and are looking for something different to hold you over to Age of Ultron, there’s really no reason for you not to check this show out. I’ll be watching this show a lot from now on probably, and would love to know what you think of the show in the comments below. See you next time!
