I’ve been waiting for a show about Marvel’s blind lawyer superhero lawyer for, like, 20 years. So, of course, I binged on the new Daredevil show on Netflix as soon as I could. I wasn’t the only one here at Kotaku who felt that way. You know what? We loved it.
Daredevil’s a different beast when compared to the other adaptations based on Marvel’s characters. It’s co-produced with Netflix, with no network executives making creative decisions that could screw things up. And, like many other streaming series, all the episodes are available at once. So Kirk Hamilton, Mike Fahey and myself all inhaled 13 episodes of Daredevil as quickly as possible and then got together to talk about the stuff that jazzed us or bummed us out.

There are, of course, plot details discussed below for the whole first season so don’t read any further if you don’t want to be spoiled.
