    I watched the opening scenes before the credits on my phone this morning, like a desperate sad nerd. Looked pretty great.
    The end of episode 2 is supposedly where it's at!!

    I think it's time I stop reading the thread, stick my fingers in my ears and go "La! La! La!'.

    I shall return once I have finished watching.

    @THFourteen Burgers improve any TV show by roughly 48.6%.

    (You're now making me paranoid that I eat a burger every time I watch TV...!)
    And what's wrong with burgers and tv :-D sorry to correct you but actually they improve them but 86.2 percent. Curry or pizza improve them too but less so.

    It's really well done so far.

    I may as well compare it to Arrow because I guess that's the closest comparison. The way it's shot is closer to something like True Detective than Arrow.

    Arrow (which I enjoy, for what it is) is so fucking stale, there's no thought into the cinematography, or into colour, or mood. It's the bare bones template of how to make a TV show. Or take Gotham for example, everywhere is too clean, and the premise is too formulaic.

    This, on the otherhand, looks pretty damn beautiful most of the time. His sense ability is really well done too, nothing too comic booky about it, you have to infer most of it through the dialogue, which isn't as cliched or run of the mill as Arrow. It's actually makes the characters feel like people, and not stuck in TV archetypes like Felicity out of Arrow is.

    Essentially, it does what every other decent TV show does, which is only really a surprise and worthy of applause simply because every other superhero TV show so far hasn't managed to.


    TLDR. It's not amazing, but it's doing everything right.

    Just finished Episode 1 - very, very promising.

    The tone is absolutely spot on - it's much darker and grittier than the other 'superhero' shows that are on at the moment. The action is more visceral and the colour pallete is much darker.

    The guy playing Daredevil is really good, he has an easy charm to him and does well in the action scenes too.

    Obviously it's just the first episode so it's all about getting everything set up, but it's an excellent way to kick things off.

    Highly recommended.

    On my way home with pizza. Girlfriend wants to have sex first, and then it's pizza, ice cream and DareDevil.

    @Derblington why not eat pizza while having sex while daredevil plays in the background?
