    I've watched the first episode and I'm less than impressed. I know they're trying to be artsy or whatever, but the filming is too fucking dark. I don't want to watch a show where I have to turn the brightness up on my TV. The first scene was also right out of Batman Begins.

    No thanks.

    True, but the audience isn't. It's also everything, the city, the police dept., offices, etc.

    :mad:

    I am on my last episode.

    Agreed, it's pretty dark but good too.

    There's a lot of good about it too. The fight scenes are pretty good. I just can't put up with how dark it is.

    It's slow.
    I like Charlie Cox but christos -this show moves like a slug crossing Occam's razor.
    It looked like the clips copped from the old movie Black Rain.
    Scary Japs.
    OOOOOOOOOHHHHHH!
    I'm just so scared of martial artiste piss freaks.

    Not just that please watch further episodes where they take time to show the traits of each main character it's pretty good .

    Daredevil is one of the darker comics Marvel prints. Back in the day it was one way to make him different from the most, apart from being blind.

    I'm actually loving the show. Take this from a comic book lover. It does stay for the most part, true to the character.

    I wouldn't know. I watch it with a black mask over my eyes. You've heard of method actors? I'm a method viewer.

    It's very visually noir moody dark but that's Daredevil's subpocket world within the Marvel Universe. Its supposed to be NYC Hell's Kitchen at its most corrupt and worst.

    I'm not bailing on shit. I'm riding this out till ep 13 - Ive waited too long for this to come out. But it DOES need to be brightened a wee bit as I'm almost as blindzo in real life as Matt Murdock. And as @JessOnCrack will remind everyone on twitter.

    I'm guessing he sports the classic red costume by ep 5??

    When does Rosario Dawson show up? Anything on Bullseye or Elektra yet?

    I think Matt just made an Avengers reference. And THIS Foggy Nelson reminds me of a cross between Donal Logue and Oliver Platt with a rim shot of Favreau.

    The hideous IRON MAN 3 bit off BATMAN BEGINS as well alot. BUT DARK KNIGHT RISES shamelessly stole from GOOD WILL HUNTING.
