It’s an understatement to say I was pumped up for the latest Netflix adaptation of Daredevil. I love Daredevil. Even when I hate it. I’ve always had a complicated relationship with the Marvel hero, largely because of how the series relies on Matt Murdock’s blindness to hide his super alter ego.

With season 2 afoot, I felt now was an appropriate time to share my thoughts on the first season over the next few days to help get you hyped up for what’s coming this Friday!  As with most reviews, the following may (read: definitely does) contain spoilers – consider yourself adequately warned.
