    Creator/executive producer Drew Goddard (“Cabin in the Woods”) serves up a dark, edgy, violent and, at times, gruesome series that has some teeth to it.

    This is easily the best of Marvel's three shows so far, and quickly moves towards the front of the overall superhero TV pack.

    Daredevil stands alone as an artful, gritty ensemble drama that could elevate the superhero origin story like HBO’s “True Detective” did for the crime procedural.

    The pulpy style and brutality (torture is one of Daredevil’s tools) clearly seek a higher sense of realism, which must be balanced against the notion of a blind superhero who can shimmy up walls and whose spectacularly hearing lets him to function, among other things, as a human lie detector. Helpfully, Cox brings the necessary mix of grit and Marvel-esque self-doubts to the dual role.

    It's dark and, yes, gritty, but the tone fits the character, and it's obvious the series' creators have a real familiarity and affection for their source material.

    So much about Marvel’s Daredevil works exactly the way it’s intended, including the pace of the action and the extent and style of the gore. What still doesn’t work--what almost never works where the name Marvel and live-action film/TV meet--is the hammy dialogue, especially when characters express their feelings to one another.

    Ultimately it’s very purple in its prose, yearning to be film noir, but--lacking the writing or grit to achieve that--playing more like hokey blood porn.

Matt Murdock is an excellently written character, and the suspenseful nature of the show is immediately appealing. I highly recommend this show for any comic-book fan, and anyone who just likes a good action/adventure story (as long as you can handle the very graphic violence)! Expand

His screen presence is outstanding. Daredevil himself is good and nails the nerd element perfectly. The supporting cast works well in Matt's slipstream.

    But Fisk is the man here, puts meat and bones on a fantasy tale and somehow makes it believable and thoughtful.
    Lastly its much more violent and more willing to kill off characters than I expected. So far so good.

I have never rooted for a villain so much to kill the "good" guys and at the same time you know that none of the annoying "good" guys will die no matter how ridiculous the plot is and their circumstances are. I watched the entire first season and hated every minute of it. Wanted to see if something exiting happened but no. You already know exactly who isn't going to die and exactly whats going to happen. Worst acting I have ever seen in a super hero movie too. Expand
