Karen, Matt and Goffy

"Daredevil" review by Eva Diaz 4/20/15
Airs on Netflix - watch the first season -13 episodes now!

I love superhero shows! My favorite superheroes are Superman, Batman, and the Flash (although, I don't agree with some of the changes that have been made to the Superman back story in recent film and TV versions). However, I say all this because it is very rare for me not to have heard of a popular superhero. I must admit, though, that I had never heard Daredevil. Because of his being new to me, I was excited to hear that they were going to have a show about him. I have only seen the first episode so far, and that episode is the basis for this review. I enjoyed the show very much. I felt that the lighting was very dark, but it served to highlight the evil of Hell's Kitchen where Matt Murdock (Charlie Cox) lives. He's a lawyer who was blinded as a child from an accident and radioactive spill. Now he uses his skills as a lawyer to defend those people who cannot defend themselves, and at night he is Daredevil, defending people who need help to fight the evil around them. I like daredevil for many reasons, but the main reason is that as Matt Murdock the lawyer, the character can be a hero when he wins a case, and as Daredevil he can also help people who need him around the city.

The show has a lot of humor, but it's also dramatic and sweet without losing the elements of a good superhero. I also enjoy the great chemistry between Matt and his buddy --best friend and law partner Foggy Nelson (Elden Henson). I have heard that the supporting cast in future episodes is great and will include Rosario Dawson. This show feels like a movie, broken down into hourly segments. If you like a good superhero show, mixed with a good lawyer show, Daredevil is the one for you. Being on Netflix, it's perfect for binge-watching on the weekend, or to watch one or two episodes at a time when you have some free time. It is very well-written, although the violence is a bit graphic and disturbing at times. I give this show a 5 out of 5 stars. The show began airing on Netflix on April 10.
