Daredevil Episode 1: Just Getting Started


In the spirit  of Jessica Jones premiering on Netflix November 20th, it seemed like a fantastic idea to finally watch Daredevil and write about it in the only manner I knew.

Sarcastically, and full of absurd remarks.

Let us begin!

Not for the faint of heart at all.

With a warning like that for just the first episode, you can tell it’s going to be a promising season. What with its bone crunching, and its angst, and the dark filter over most of the show giving it this gritty tone… it’s lovely.

Anytime you start a show with a kid losing his sight in a heartbreaking way, you know you’re in for a good time.

On that note, fucking old people and their neediness to be saved.

“Be careful of the Murdock boys. They got the devil in them.”

Should you be revealing your identity and family history in confessional? Even to a priest? I mean…that just seems counter productive to the whole secret identity because you’re a superhero sort of thing.

I get it. He’s holy, yada yada, religious stuff, you think you can trust them. There’s a slew of investigative reports that would say otherwise against trusting the good ol’ father but Matthew’s over the age of twelve, so he’s fine.

Gotta love Foggy.

The man supplies the mother of an officer of the law with cigars. The man is a gift to humanity. So what if he handed her the equivalent of seventy sticks of cancer (that’s an estimate I’m not a mathematician), he’s actually very considerate!

You can’t help to feel a little bad for him though. His friend and partner in law somehow manages to get every single beautiful woman they make eye contact with to fall for him! Matt can’t even make eye contact, and he still gets women!

It’s a tough day to be Foggy…or life…whatever.

Murdock has nifty not-spider-senses.

The man is a human lie detector thanks to his superhuman four senses, and it’s actually quite helpful. How convenient is that? You don’t need a fancy schamncy lie detector machine to figure out the truth, just a blind guY!

Not any blind guy though, don’t try this at home kids.

“The incident.”

Ah, subtle references to the events of the first Avengers film. No one calls it the Chitauri invasion apparently, but rather,  the incident. How vague and ominous, considering how many incidents there are nowadays in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

This is like their own version of Voldemort, or hell, Beetlejuice! Careful, if you say the incident three times in a row, a SHIELD agent appears and ruins your life forever.

Gotta love the girl who lies through her teeth.

Honestly, Karen. Lying about having the file and sneaking out in the middle of the night? After all of the elaborate scheming done to make sure you didn’t talk, did you really think no one would be watching the place so they could take the files for you?

Sure, call her a hero for willing to get herself killed so no one else would die. In reality, this was just poor planning on her part!

I can’t wait for more Daredevil, where Foggy will surely be baffled by Matt’s ways of having sex with all the beautiful women, and Foggy will continue to add his own special brand of humor.
