Susan: As I was telling your associate, this office was barely touched by the incident, which is why it's on the market already. The neighbors weren't so lucky.
Matt Murdock: "The incident"? Is that what we're calling it?
Susan: Well, it sounds so much better than "death and destruction raining from the sky, nearly wiping Hell's Kitchen off the map."
Matt Murdock: Shorter, too.

Heroes and Their Consequences
28 April 2015 | by ThomasDrufkeSee all my reviews

So I finally got around to watching the first episode of one of the most buzzed about TV shows, at least of superhero shows. After the Ben Affleck debacle, which was not his fault by the way, I wasn't too interested in another adaptation of the man without fear. This new take on Marvel's blind superhero seems to take the character in a different direction. The opening episode is by far the darkest thing that the Marvel universe has done. It's definitely an advantage of having the show on Netflix as opposed to network television.

We begin with the initial accident to Matt Murdock and the tragic but interesting consequences it has on him. We also get introduced to what we can assume will be on his team come the rest of the season, Karen Page and Foggy Nelson. I thought Deborah Ann Woll's performance as Page was the highlight of the episode. There was absolutely nothing fake to her performance and didn't come off as damsel in distress like female characters in superhero movies/shows often do. Nelson brought comedic relief but so far, I can do without. We only got a glimpse into Wilson Fisk's AKA Kingpin's plan but I love the way Hell's Kitchen was set up. One of the criticisms of Arrow was that they failed early on at showing the brutally despicable sides of the Glades in Starling City. But Daredevil seemed to understand how to set up a city that does indeed need saving.

The show is more graphic and realistic than the movies or TV shows of the universe has done so far. So I'm not to keen on the full on crossover just yet. In fact the show only hints at the events of New York as 'the incident'. But those events did pave the way for Fisk's business plans. Murdock springs into action against Fisk's associates a few times during the episode, in his cloth like costume. The fight sequences are absolutely incredible. They make even Winter Soldier seem like works of a semi-pro. I also really enjoyed the opening credits as it seemed Girl with a Dragon Tattoo like. The show has a lot of promise so far, and can be something fresh Marvel can put out every year. So I'm really looking forward to watching the rest of the season in the coming days.
