Daredevil (Netflix Series)

Produced by Netflix

Starring Charlie Cox, Deborah Ann Woll, Elden Henson, Vincent D’Onofrio, Rosario Dawson.

Daredevil is a superhero created by Stan Lee and Bill Everett for Marvel Comics. This was one of the many comic book titles I used to read when I was a teenager. I loved the stories and the images and really spent a lot of time reading them. The Daredevil movie I can’t say it was all bad but it had its flaws, and it was not just Ben Affleck. But I think this series got it right. 

The story is that Matt Murdock is blinded by a radioactive substance that falls in his eyes. That really augmented all of his other senses and gave a unique ability to act as if he could see. As an adult, he becomes a lawyer and a hero by night. the first season revolves on how he became Daredevil. The first season I thought it was great. The story was interesting and the way they developed the character was also done properly. The other characters that surrounded Matt, I liked that they had their stories and situations. Foggy was a good character along with Karen, the three formed a good team on screen. Wilson Fisk is one of Daredevil’s biggest foes and he is so brilliantly portrayed by Vincent D’Onofrio. 

Season two was a bit of a letdown for me. It was not as exciting as the first season, even though the storyline included The Punisher, I don’t know it just failed to really grab me. I saw the whole season and I liked it, but it was not better than the first season in my opinion. 

Season three is the best season of the series. I started season three without much expectation and I found myself glued to the episodes. The story of Daredevil defeated and in hiding, thinking of crossing the line and kill Fisk was a good story and it was really interesting that it was a nun who healed his wounds. Fisk is the character that drove this season as he manipulates everything and creates the villain Bullseye. 

It is a shame that Netflix canceled the show. We will have to wait and see if the new streaming service Disney + will revive this series along with the other Marvel shows that were on Netflix. This is a good series if you like Marvel heroes.
