Apartment fight was hilarious, man was so tired and hurting, taking breaks between each scuffle.

Yeah that 4 minute long fight scene was incredible. It was all a single shot.

This has got to be the best comicbook to television production ever.

Mature, intelligent, gritty without falling over into parody/slit-your-wrists territory and brilliantly acted.

Fisk is obviously the outstanding character, but Matt, Foggy and Karen are well fleshed out and their actions and thoughts are given meaning and weight due to the combination of dialogue and acting.

The first season was always going to be a bit slow, so much background to provide, the need to introduce the characters but leave room for them to grow into their fully realised comic-book forms, etc, but still it managed to be very entertaining and retain its sense of maturity with the fantastical elements.

Can't wait for season two. Pity MAOS, which looks like it has a similar budget, doesn't have anywhere near the depth to its characters.

Still DD and MAOS are head and shoulders above cheesy tween-ish Flash and the slightly more adult Arrow.

The Flash is just a different show. Its full on Sci-fi/comic nerd at this point and it does what its supposed to. Its a polar opposite to something like Daredevil.

Watching it now. Marvel is just kicking the absolute shit out of dc. It's kind of hilarious.

Daredevil is truly great but lol at this. Dark and gritty isn't what make a show great. The Flash is suppose to be the exact opposite of all that. If you don't like that then thats cool because different opinions and all but The Flash hits the mark wonderfully.

Honestly The Flash and Daredevil are my two favorite shows for sure!


Edit: Also I stopped watching MAOS around the Thor: The Dark World tie in....has it actually gotten better? I mean I thought it was alright for what it was but it wasn't enough to keep me interested really.

It's still not the greatest show, but it has massively improved since then.

I highly disagree, though season 3 of Arrow isn't at it's best compared to the last two seasons. I have never been excited to watch the next episode of AOS as I have for Arrow and The Flash. AOS has made strides, though, but it still feels like MCU filler at the end of the day.


Now, onto Daredevil: This is what Marvel television should be! Smart, thrilling, suspenseful, well acted, action packed, and starring actual Marvel characters!

I hope the rumors of an Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. spinoff aren't true. No need to waste more resources on D and F list characters with no prior establishment in the comics.

Mine too. Both DD and Flash are apples and oranges. Flash is a hit, that's for sure.

Reminded me of the hammer brawl in 2003's Oldboy, which was one continuous shot down a hallway and one guy versus dozens. Maybe it was a homage.

I think when I started reading Daredevil in the mid-1980's, this is how I imagined it would look in live action. Not like that movie misfire in 2003, which was trying to be a Spider Man imitation. This is the best work of Frank Miller, David Mazzuchelli, Bill Sienkiewicz, Brain Michael Bendis and Alex Maleev I'm seeing so far.

Just finished watching it (watched all 13 episodes in 3 days). Um....wow.

Easily, EASILY the best comic book to tv show I've ever watched. Arrow is pretty good, MAOS is alright, but this is Heads and shoulders better than anything else. I only wish there were more episodes to watch sad

Acting is terrific, plot and pacing are outstanding, and the fight scenes are maybe the best I've seen in the live action super hero medium (the hallway fight and battle with Nobu take the cake).

I cannot WAIT to see the other Marvel netflix shows now.

After watching the first six episodes, I've concluded that not only is it the best comics related show on TV, but one of the best comic related properties period. It's takes territory explored by Christopher Nolan's Batman trilogy and goes further into the dark corners the movie can only glaze over; the advantage of the serial aspect of TV, getting to fill more air time with character development.

Just waiting to see how Matt arrives at the full red suit, now.

I agree. It really exceeded my expectations. I got pissed when I finished watching the entire thing knowing there wasn't anymore.
