Getting some excellent reviews this week.
Come on Midnight PST
Really good 1st episode.
Love seeing that the Chitauri attack on NYC, "The Incident", is still having its influence.
A little Deborah Ann Woll side boob (sans nipple), can't remember if we ever got that much from her in True Blood
I thought the first episode was pretty good. Not great. But it certainly sets the scene for a season that could end up great.
First fight scene was fucking brutal and awesome.
Also loved the fact the corruption is rising from construction after the near destruction of New York in Avengers.
Not the biggest fan of Daredevil, but I really enjoyed the first episode. Especially that part where Ben Urich kicked 15 guys asses by himself, then pushed his glasses back up his nose, lit a cigarette and said, "Now, there's a headline."
Oldboyian fight scene in episode 2 is awesome.
NOT FOR CHILDREN
OH SHIT! They just went in on anti-vaxxers!
This show goes HARD in the paint! Jesus.
Guess I'll just check into this thread once I finish the series. Don't really want to read reactions on future episodes.
D'Onofrio is amazing in this role
Episode 1: Just became a lawyer take on a murder case, no big thing.
Ending of episode 4
What I've learned from this show....don't leave a corpse in a room with two prisoners, because they can use the corpse's ribs as shanks.
yeah its awesome that there's continuity
I've heard of getting your foot in the door, but a door through your head?
Show is a mixture of the brutality of Punisher War Zone and Batman Begins
4 episodes in.
Marvel is so fucking amazing.
Episode 9. God damn.
Hold onto your jimmies for that one.
The "Greek girl" they are talking about Matt taking a Spanish class with is Elektra. :comicnerdchills:
It's all so good but goddam if I can't wait for the next Kingpin scene.
D'Onofrio probably won't, but should be nominated for an Emmy for Best Supporting Actor, if not win.
He is just mesmerizing on screen.
Just started episode 1.
2 episodes in. Very surpised and happy to see Rosario Dawson. her
Beating a dead horse, but this show is amazing. I'm glad it's on Netflix, because this show would never air/work on TV.
Started it tonight with the GF unfortunately, now I have to wait for her and watch 1-2 episodes at a time, where as if it was just me I'd binge watch that shit in 2 days hah
First two episodes were very good, looking forward to the rest.
Yea I couldn't stop watching and finished the show today. So fucking good
Finale is incredible.
Hard to compare TV and movies, but I'll rank this just under the tier of Iron Man 1, Avengers, Winter Soldier, and GotG that Marvel Studios has put out.
I'd put it right there with those movies
Yeah, thinking about it I'm putting it in that category.
D'Onofrio is among the best comic book castings ever.
yea he was an awful person, but somehow i was still rooting for him.
also i've finished the series and i still can't stop thinking about the fight scene at the end of episode 2
Man, I am going to get slayed for this opinion, but I walked away a little disappointed. Granted, I am sure I had unrealistic expectations for the show, but the only episode that REALLY hooked my was Episode 9 when he took on The Hand.
I thought it was good to very good, but nowhere near the level of Avengers or Cap 2. As a comics fan, I much prefer Luke Cage and Iron Fist to Daredevil, so hopefully those two will hook me more than this one.
How does it compare to Spartacus? Watching entourage right now so I can't watch DD.
It's better, but with less tits and fucking. I wasn't ever a big Spartacus fan though. I gave up halfway through the second season. I wasn't ever s Daredevil fan either, but this show is really good regardless of whether you liked the comics or not.
Just finished it up. Damn good series. I don't really know shit about comics so I probably missed a bunch of info that was dropped throughout the series. Look forward to reading the spoilers itt to see shit I never would catch myself.
Not a huge Daredevil fan. But, I liked Frank Miller's Man Without Fear. Really happy that this reminds me of that.
There are so many good performances in the show. Especially by all the villains tbh.
His on the screen shift in episode 4 is amazing. Up to that point if you know nothing about the comic book version of Fisk, you would think that the brothers were right and basically he was hiding behind his money and letting lackeys do all the work because he couldn't. One scene later and that is dispelled in an an amazingly violent manner.
Binge watched this all weekend. Now sad panda that I am out of episodes. Amazing! Can't wait till everyone catches up and we can discuss freely.
I'm 6 episodes in. This is amazing.
Iron Fist easter eggs *spoilers*
In Marvel's Daredevil series, there were four, major organized crime syndicates operating in NYC - the yakuza, the triad, the Russians and the Kingpin's (Vincent D'Onofrio) group. While the Russians and Kingpin's crew are more traditional elements of organized crime, the yakuza and triad only appeared to be. Daredevil definitely left the door open to explore more of the latter two and their more mystical roots in a second season or....in Iron Fist.
Stick looks to be reporting to Stone, a member of The Chaste. In the comics, Stone is actually Stick's pupil.
Naturally, the mystic element to Daredevil truly arrives in episode 7, "Stick". In Marvel Comics, Stick is a member ofThe Chaste, an offshoot of The Hand. The spilt between The Chaste and The Hand occurs in feudal era Japan whenThe Hand veers away from samurai philosophy and transforms into a ninja cult. Those who kept to the traditional, samurai ideology became The Chaste. As hinted at by Stick (Scott Glenn) in episode 7, each member of The Chastepossesses supernatural ability. It appears that Stick was just about to teach young Matt Murdock (Skylar Gaertner) these abilities when his sentimental gift caused Stick to abandon Matt as he feared he was too soft for what sounds like an impending showdown with The Hand. The leader of The Chaste is Master Izo, an immortal martial artist and original member of The Hand who is also mentioned in The Book of The Iron Fist - a sacred tome that contains every martial arts move ever conceived. In addition, the mystical abilities Stick hinted at just before abandoning young Matt sounds a lot like the Chi-based abilities many of the residents of K'un-Lun posses. Don't be surprised if Marvel's Iron Fist series attempts to combine the mythology of The Hand and the Seven Capital Cities of Heaven. In the comics, the conflict between The Hand and The Chaste is generally something that is separate from the activities of the Seven Capital Cities of Heaven, the two martial arts linchpins of Marvel have intersected with one another before and led to team-ups between Iron First and Daredevil.
That's definitely the symbol for Iron Fist villain Steel Serpent.
The next hint comes in the form of Madame Gao (Wai Ching Ho) and the heroin she manufactures in Hell's Kitchen. According to Ben Ulrich (Vondie Curtis-Hall) the drug is known on the street as the Still Serpent. This is definitely an allusion to "Steel Serpent" an Iron Fist villain with ties to K'un Lun. This symbol on the drug packet is also a dead on match to the symbol on the Steel Serpent's chest. There's also Gao's cryptic hint that her home is "a considerable distance" farther than China. Many fans are speculating that Gao is really Crane Mother , the ruler of a differentCapital City of Heaven and adversary of Iron First. There's definitely more to Gao than meets the eye, given that she dismantled Daredevil with one palm-thrust.
In the drunken college flashback, Foggy accuses Matt of taking Spanish because of that "Greek girl" and goes on to ask "whatever happened to her?" Matt does not respond...
Elektra Natchios, anyone?
Five eps in. Enjoying it. Not a big comic book guy so I'm sure a lot
Is going over my head.
Fun fact: the actress plays Karen - her long time BF suffers from some disease that makes him blind.
And now she's in a show where the lead is blind. CRAZY!!!
3 episodes left.
In retrospect in the first episode I'd have loved a joke or reference to the car accident that spilled the toxic waste mutating sewer animals.
about to start watching in a few days, im pumped
