I finally finished Daredevil Season 1. It was great. It had a slow burn which felt like an arc over several comic book issues, and that made the final episode very satisfying. Not revealing the Daredevil costume until the final episode was an inspired choice. So was giving Fisk his own arc by showing him meet and fall in love with Vanessa, instead of having him already married as in the comics... Yeah, that served to humanize him and make him more layered. I'd rank him as possibly the best Marvel Studios villain so far, or maybe the equal of Loki as the two best. So much of what makes a superhero show good depends on how strong the villain is. Daredevil also had a lot of nice touches and small details, like Karen seeming flawed from the start, and Melvin Potter AKA the Gladiator be the one who makes DD's costume! Yes, he was a tailor, and did switch sides to become a DD supporter in the comics, so that was a perfect fit! Leland Owlsey AKA the Owl! I love it! The Daredevil vs Ninja fight was like something right out of a Frank Miller storyboard, and a lot of the lighting and use of darks was reminiscent of Klaus Janson inks.
