Matt Murdock was blinded as a child and through interesting circumstances, learns to use his other senses and abilities to fight crime in the neighborhood of Hell’s Kitchen, all while being a lawyer with his best friend, Foggy Nelson. Murdock faces up against the kingpin to end all villains: Wilson Fisk, played by none other than Vincent D’Onofrio from Law & Order: CI.
This show is dark, heart-wrenching, and attention-sucking. I couldn’t stop once I started. I binge watched all 13 episodes in less than 36 hours. Granted, they’re roughing 55 mins each, so you can imagine how working 8-3pm every day faired while completing this marvel-ous series (hey, I had to ;)).
Charlie Cox is perfection and for those of you unfamiliar with the name, does 2007’s Stardust with Claire Danes ring any bells? Another one of my favorite movies.
Go out and watch this show, but get more sleep than I did.
Yes, there is a season in the works, but I hear we’ll have to wait under 2016. Le sigh.
