Right now in the magical ether of the internet, on mystical servers of awesome just waiting for you to say the magic word, is a show that you should be watching instead of doing anything else. That show is Marvel’s Daredevil on Netflix.
Available through Netflix streaming as of April 10th, the series centers on Matt Murdock, played by Charlie Cox. By day he’s a lawyer working out of Hell’s Kitchen in New York City. He’s just getting off the ground with his college buddy and best friend Foggy Nelson (Elden Henson). They’re in business to make a difference in their city. To find justice and protect the innocent away from the scumbag lawyers they interned with during their matriculation. Oh yeah, Murdock is also blind. After a childhood accident that cost him his sight, Murdock has since developed his other senses to turn him into the “Devil of Hell’s Kitchen,” a masked vigilante with amazing martial arts skills and heightened awareness and physical capabilities. The “Devil” — who evolves into the titular Daredevil — also fights for justice and protection of the city just in a more punchy way.
The beauty of the Netflix format is that the episodes are released all at once, allowing you to watch an entire season at your own convenience, or if you’re really into it (like me), you can watch all 13 episodes in one weekend. After the binge, I have to say that Daredevil is amazing and in my opinion has changed the game for comic book-based television shows. If you turned off your Netflix account, it’s about time to fire it back up because here’s a few reasons why you should be watching Marvel’s Daredevil right now.
