Been pacing myself and not watching all 13 episodes in one go!
It's so dark! Gritty!! And a tad violent!! But brilliantly made!
Watch it!! grin

Tell us more.

It's very good but I do find the fight scenes a bit poorly cut and dark. That is really a very minor complaint though; the overriding fact is that Daredevil is hot grin

Bea Tue 14-Apr-15 17:04:45

Oooo! Don't tempt me... It's dark...!
The fight scenes are amazingly choreographed and I love the slow story telling.. . I think because it's made by Netflix they have the luxury of not being confined to tell the whole story in 50 . Mins . With ad breaks!
Or try and grab audiences with a tied up all resolved ending!
It's great!
Oh and Daredevil / matt murdock is not only angst ridden but mighty handsome too!! wink

we watched the first episode last night.... I was very impressed! we'll have to try very hard not to binge watch!

Blarblarblar Tue 14-Apr-15 17:21:09

Struggling to get into it but I shall persevere.

Pantygirdl Tue 14-Apr-15 17:28:10

Love it! But I have had to look away for some of it, very violent. He is very gorgeous too.

Bea Tue 14-Apr-15 18:21:02

Hoorah! I'm not the only one trying not to binge watch then!
Wilson fisk is a great creation!! Flawed.. A cliché but fantastically acted and really well written! Not cut and dry bad guy!
There's a lot of flinching from me during the fight scenes....

My only one real complaint are the incredibly tight clothes the two female leads are poured into!! .

MischievousNaughty Tue 14-Apr-15 18:31:53

Ooh yes he's very tasty and the show is so gripping!

redexpat Tue 14-Apr-15 18:45:05

Are you my DH?

mynewpassion Tue 14-Apr-15 18:45:37

Thanks. Will check it out

quietbatperson Tue 14-Apr-15 18:46:01

DH and I have seen two episodes. It is very, very good, and completely gripping. I like the darkness - it has the darkness of Arrow without the cheesiness and is miles better than the Flash and I noticed in a big fight scene in episode 2 there was no incidental music, which really kept the tension high. It's been very well thought out.

LadyDeadpool Tue 14-Apr-15 19:02:08

If you like Daredevil you'll love Arrow and Stephen Amell is gorgeous plus he does his own stunts then you need to watch the flash since it ties in. Oh and then there's the Arrow/Flash spin-off next year.

ZingDramaQueenOfSheeba Tue 14-Apr-15 19:03:44

ooh thanks for that

my recommendation is White Collar. just fantastic

ShouldIworryornothelp Tue 14-Apr-15 19:06:00

Its crap. DH is hooked on it though.

WannabeLaraCroft Tue 14-Apr-15 19:27:58

Watched the 1st episode of this the other night, thoroughly enjoyed it!

And yy to White Collar - brilliant show smile

EndoplasmicReticulum Tue 14-Apr-15 19:28:45

They need to turn a few lights on. I can't tell what's going on most of the time.

iklboo Tue 14-Apr-15 19:30:53

We're on episode 11. shock

It's very good. Love Vincent D'Onfronio as Wilson Fisk. He's so so watchable.

ZingDramaQueenOfSheeba Tue 14-Apr-15 19:36:22

wannabe

I watched White Collar with DS1.
last Friday DH took oldest 3 clothes shopping and DS1 returned with a black trilby.grin
really suits him

oh yes, watch Gabriel Macht Suits as well

Royalsighness Tue 14-Apr-15 19:37:17

I'm quite liking it too! I second this thread x

CumbrianExile Tue 14-Apr-15 19:42:03

I agree, wasn't to sure but DH insisted I watch it. We are on episode 8 now and I am really enjoying it. I just can't get used to Detective Goran as Frisk though, its really weird grin

WannabeLaraCroft Tue 14-Apr-15 19:52:20

Yes Suits too!! Fantastic show

ZenNudist Tue 14-Apr-15 20:00:30

Seen first few, will watch it all but not too impressed. It's got room to improve. Bit dumb (& I love marvel stuff!)

I'm hoping for his superpower to become more 'super' plus bit of conspiracy backstory about how he ended up blind. It better be that as a pay off for all the dull harking back to the past.

Roll on new avengers film I say!

MadAsgardian Tue 14-Apr-15 20:06:35

I am a bit disappointed so far. We are HUGE Marvel geeks in our house so it has been hotly anticipated.

First I find some of the dark scenes too dark!! I know the whole mood is dark but when you can't see what's happening it's annoying. Second, it's much more violent than I had imagined.

Last - it's not Ben Affleck!!! (I know he can be a bit crap but he's so dreamy!) DH and DD love it. DS got bored after the first 15 minutes.

VV Excited for Age of Ultron Zen - DD is sulking because we aren't going on opening night but our nearest cinema is 45 minutes away and DH and I don't get in until 6ish. We've booked for Friday
