Daredevil!!!

H and I are only through the first four or so eps of Daredevil.
Like everyone keeps saying, it’s good.

And yet…
I really don’t like Vincent D’nonfrio . I never have. I only watched his Law & Order when they were doing Logan episodes. Duh, Chris Noth > Goren.

I was telling H, villains are usually at least a little sexy: Loki, Billy Zane in Dead Calm, Sunil Bakshi, Pat Bateman, even Matt Damon played a hot bad guy. If they’re not sexy, they’re just straight-up terrifying. Anthony Hopkins as Hannibal Lecter (or Titus, depending), Palpatine, Otis Driftwood, Jigsaw, McCauley Culkin in The Good Son. You know…but D’nonfrio isn’t really either of those things. I’m not saying I’m resistive to something new, but I just don’t see the appeal.

Otherwise though, Charlie Cox is everything I wanted him to be.
I love that Jessica from True Blood is way less annoying than she was on that show. Turns out, she’s actually got some chops.

I love the universe building, though it would have been cool if they’d had Creel show up for the fight with the dad.
