    I waited quite some time to actually sit down and watch 'DareDevil'. I basically had zero interest in the series. But I am all for giving all shows their fair chance. Once I finally had nothing else to watch one night, I figured I would give it a go. Now I am super happy that I did.

    Reason number one. If you are a superhero fan such as myself, it does a very good job of keeping Matt Murdock (aka DD) as a die-hard protector of the public.

    Two. There are a flood of superhero movies hitting the big screen these days. This is a great escape from them. Not that any are bad. But they have to hold themselves to a more serious standard that Netflix.

    Three. Blood, bones, violence. This series has all of those. As much as I love the Avengers, I'm kinda tired of seeing an entire city get destroyed and not a drop of blood on anyone. It's unrealistic.

    Four. The main character, Charlie Cox is outstanding. I really liked his role in 'Boardwalk Empire' as Nuck's right hand man. I was super happy when I saw the first episode and noticed it was him.

    And finally, fifth. The show doesn't take itself too seriously. It's hard to explain what I mean by that. But it's just another reason for you to check the show out yourself.

    One episode in. I like where i think it's headed. Main character is really believable too. That's usually how I decide if I watch episode 2 or not. I'm sold, so far.

    There are certain series that the main actor becomes that character. Sopranos, Sons of Anarchy, etc, etc. This is yet another. Charlie Cox IS DareDevil. It gets much much better as it goes. Keep watching!
