I signed up for Neflix 2 days ago and binge watched the first season Of Daredevil! Well all I have to say is ..... This is ONE HELL of a GOOD series! This is not a review post, though I may do one of those later if I can figure out how to write it without spoilers! What this post is however is a recommendation! If any of you in the Heromachine community are contemplating signing up for a Netflix account but are unsure if it is worth it or not, well I am here to say in My own personal option DAREDEVIL alone is worth the price of admission!
I am Glad that I have waited as long as I have however to sign up for it. Watching the first season has left me wanting more and the second season is only a few short weeks away. If I had to wait months to watch season 2 I think I would be climbing the walls by now, that's how good I think this series is!
Well that's all I have to say so let me leave you a taste of whats to come if you decided to watch this show with the season one and season two trailer!
To be honest, I’ve never really been a fan of Daredevil, either in the comic books or in the TV show. I’ve tried to watch the show a bunch of times and just can’t seem to get interested in it, despite the fact that Deborah Ann Woll is in it.
On the other hand, I absolutely love the Jessica Jones show. Also from Marvel and also on Netflix. My partner and I binge watched the entire first season almost as soon as it came out. Great show and I recommend it.
I agree, Daredevil is great and definitely worth a watch. Me personally, I did not think Jessica Jones was nearly as good….but both shows have great villains. One thing I have been noticing is that Marvel is turning out more interesting villains for their shows then they are for their movies. Maybe that has something to do with more time to flesh out the characters or something I dont know, but they are more interesting to me.
@Anarchangel: Just be sure to catch some of it so you’re aware of the character developments for later on. Netflix plans on having series for Luke Cage and Iron Fist. Also once that is on, they plan to have all 4 characters in 1 series, The Defenders.
The superhero genre has yet to peak when it comes to movies and television. So many things have come together.
I have seen neither “Daredevil” nor “Jessica Jones.” Though I have had Netflix for a few years now, I barely watch it. Why? Mostly because I’m too busy watching first-runs of “Gotham,” “Supergirl,” “Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.,” “The Flash,” “iZombie,” “Legends of Tomorrow,” “Agent Carter” … rarely stopping to eat or sleep.
Then there’s “Arrow.” Praise be to Netflix and the internet! I skipped “Arrow” at first because I didn’t have cable. So no CW. Thanks to the digital age, you can catch up on any show or movie at anytime and almost anywhere. You don’t even have to set the VCR (aside: Cyborg’s rant about VCRs on “Teen Titans GO!”).
Definitely will check out “Daredevil” and “Jessica Jones.” Probably after I catch up on “Arrow.” Especially since the CW runs cross-episodes with “The Flash.” Those cheeky producers.
I could scrawl an epic blog about why we are living in a golden, nay, PLATINUM age of superheroes in popular culture. But, “X-Files” is on tonight.
@The Atomic Punk, Speaking of crossovers it has been confirmed that The scarlet speedster will be making an appearance on Supergirl.
Talk about a way to start off on Netflix! I haven’t been able to watch all of Daredevil yet, sadly. But from what I have seen, I’m totally with you. I’m a little more partial to Jessica Jones at this point because I’ve actually gotten to sit down and watch it, but I am definitely awaiting season 2 of DD rather impatiently. Because while Vincent D’Onofrio’s Kingpin is terrifyingly phenomenal, I’m more excited to see Daredevil coming up against the Punisher. I’ve got some high hopes for that after that trailer. I haven’t been that happy to see the Punisher on screen since the Dirty Laundry short (which I highly recommend to anyone who hasn’t seen it, although very much not kid-friendly).
But I’m rambling. Welcome to Netflix. I know between us and the kids, it’s definitely worthwhile, and hopefully will be for you too. Once they start rolling out Luke Cage and Iron Fist and whatever else is coming down the pipe, I think it’s going to be a good time. Just from what we’ve gotten so far, at least.
I did see CBS’s Supergirl when The Flash ran through the breach. I believe the other hero was from an upcoming DC’s Legends of Tomorrow. This week’s episode, in fact. No doubt that there will be multitudes of crossovers as DC expands their “mediaverse.”
However, I don’t think that The Flash who appears in Supergirl will be Barry Allen from Earth-1 (Grant Gustin). Why? The primary reason is that the heroes appear on separate TV networks. Contracts, studio rights, and all that. These “inconsistencies” are easily explained by DC’s Infinite Earth premise.
Comparatively, there is Spider-Man with Tobey Maguire. Then there is The Amazing Spider-Man with Andrew Garfield. These are different directions for the same character. Bugs me to no end when people refer to Amazing as a “reboot.” Even in the comics, I lost count of how many Spider-Man titles with webhead living in distinct universes.
Speaking of inconsistencies. Did anyone else catch the gaffe when Alex Danvers brought Supergirl some take-out from Chicago? Correct me if I’m wrong. My understanding is that Metropolis (Superman’s base) is Chicago. Central City is Denver (which is now by the ocean or a really huge lake in CW’s The Flash). Gotham is New York City. Starling City is Seattle. Do a search on “dc cities comics” and you get all sorts of geography. Perhaps a result of planar shifts between the Infinite Earths.
I apologize for hijacking the Daredevil thread.
@Worf Yeah I know about the other series coming from Marvel. I’m looking forward to both Iron Fist and Luke Cage but I’ve just never been all that interested in Daredevil. He’s just boring to me.
I do like all the DC shows (except Supergirl) and Flash and Arrow are two of my favourites.
I’d say my favourite of all the Marvel and DC shows though is Agents of Shield. I know it has it’s critics but it has a great cast with some of my favourite actors. Fun show.
No it will be Grant Gustin, I’ve seen Pictures of him on set with him and supergirl is costume. CBS owns part of the CW
I agree Daredevil is a GREAT series, Iv watched them all and I love how Agents of Shield, Daredevil and Jessica Jones all come together to help form the MCU. Great shows, all different but all have great stories.
I also have to say that DC is doing really well with its TV than they are with movies, Im a huge Arrow fan, its one of my favorite series and Flash goes with it so well. They just started Legends of Tomorrow and its been pretty good so far. I just hope they can go further and these shows stay as good as they are!
Second trailer is up and it is KICKASS!!!!!
