Daredevil

Abandoned by his mother, Matt Murdock was raised by his father, boxer “Battling Jack” Murdock, in Hell’s Kitchen. Realising that rules were needed to prevent people from behaving badly, young Matt decided to study law; however, when he saved a man from an oncoming truck, it spilled a radioactive cargo that rendered Matt blind while enhancing his remaining senses. Under the harsh tutelage of blind martial arts master Stick, Matt mastered his heightened senses and became a formidable fighter.

On Friday, Netflix launched the original new series, offering 13 episodes from its first epic season. Designed to be watched as a 13hr movie, Netflix offers the perfect medium to binge watch this new gritty series.

The fight scenes are skilfully choreographed although very graphic at times so not suitable for young viewers. From what I’ve read, the writers have stayed true to the comics and books which has pleased many fans.

From the start, he’s dressed like some kind of ninja although I suspect he’s wearing his trademark red suit by the end of the season. In light of this, I’ve incorporated elements from both costumes opting for a slightly darker undertone.

I generally love watching how these shows develop, although I only know Daredevil from that Ben Affleck movie – so for those who have watched it, what do you think of the series?

Check out the rest of my Super Sunday series.

  1. We started watching it last night and I was surprised by how much I’m enjoying it so far! Though, not the gruesome parts — I’ve gotten very good at turning my head away when horrible things are about to happen! I’ll be forever the chicken :P

    Love the transmog :)

  2. Omg I love that transmog! Daredevil is one of my favourite superheroes!

    I wasn’t sure what to expect when I started watching the series but now both the hubby and I are hooked. I really love how it’s done and the fight scenes are amazing. So far, I like it better than the movie! :)

    • Thanks :D

      It’s definitely a lot darker than the movie.

  3. My home hosted a DD Marathon this weekend. Both my boys, my older one’s roommate and the spouse started watching Saturday night. I crashed after 3 episodes. The spouse stopped after 6. The boys stopped after 8. They restarted and finished on Sunday. Despite missing many in between, I enjoyed what I saw. I’m find some way to pick up what I missed.

    • That’s the great thing about Netflix. You can easily pick up where you left off.
