I’m about eight months late to the party but I just finished watching the first season of Daredevil on Netflix. I know some of you are suffering from superhero fatigue but this show is unlike anything you’ve seen. The show is much more grounded in reality, well as much reality as there can be while still staying within the Marvel Cinematic Universe. I would actually describe the first season as more of a crime thriller with some very limited superhero elements.

People have described the show as having a neighbourhood hero rather than say Thor, whose exploits span the galaxy. Indeed, this is very true as all thirteen episodes take place in New York City, and even then, only the Hell’s Kitchen portion of the city. There is some amazing character development, far more than is possible in any of the feature films.

Once you’re done with the man with no fear, you might want to look up Jessica Jones as well.
