Throughout the series, when adult Matt is shown reading, he moves both index fingertips across the page at the same time. A blind person places the left index fingertip at the edge of the line and keeps it stationary, to hold the place. Otherwise, the right index fingertip (which is the one that moves across the line of Braille) might not return to the start of the next line properly (it might get "lost" and skip a line or start one that had already been read). Child Matt does this more correctly than Adult Matt does. See more »
I was thinking about a story from the Bible.
FBI Agent #1:
Did I tell you to open your mouth?
FBI Agent #2:
Let him talk. Don't mean nothin'.
I'm not a religious man, but I've read bits and pieces over the years. Curiosity more than faith. But this one story... There was a man, he was traveling from Jerusalem to Jericho when he was set upon by men of ill intent. They stripped the traveler of his clothes, they beat him, and they left him bleeding in the dirt. And a priest happened by, saw the traveler, but he moved to the ...

The opening credits is a montage of silhouettes emerging from a red background, in the manner of blood dripping over everything and revealing hidden objects. See more »
Two episodes in so far, as a Daredevil fan it's exactly what I hoped for. I am a huge fan of the Daredevil comics, my favourite run being by Bendis and Maleev, and this show is how you would imagine a Daredevil TV show being. It's a dark, gritty sombre affair with some great action, there is a fight scene in episode two which is truly amazing.
Talking about action the best part for me is the action feels very realistic and brutal unlike the Daredevil film with its over the top wire work. Also very good in this show is the way his powers aren't shown in any fancy way, no sonar view or anything like that, it just emphasise his listening. The actors are all great too and the plots are compelling, just now I have nothing bad to say about this show.
When marvel got back the rights to Daredevil I was a little apprehensive of how they would portray his character, no worries there now I've seen it, or if they would use the character at all. I was worried if he did get his own show/film it'd be like the rest of the Marvel films/shows, light hearted action with great fan service and a good helping of comedic moments, which wouldn't of suited the dark world of Daredevil. But I can safely say to all you fellow hornhead fans that they have nailed everything about Daredevil perfectly.
I would highly recommend this show to Daredevil fans and fans of darker heroes like Batman, fans of the current MCU films/shows might not like the tonal change from those films/shows but it's exactly what the character needed. Now excuse me while I go watch some more! 10/10
