    More Stick is my #1 wish as well. That was one of my favorite episodes, and I kept hoping he'd show up again toward the end. It's encouraging to me that the guy who wrote that episode is one of the new showrunners.

    My only problem was Scott swore more than necessary, as if they desperately wanted to break the language barrier.

    It's more the opposite. Stick would swear more in the comics if the CCA had let him.

    Yeah, being on Netflix means these shows are gonna push boundaries. Get used to it. These aren't going to be written at the level of a Power Rangers episode for that target demo. Also, Stick's language was part and parcel of his character: He don't give a **** about social niceties or about your feelings.

    I just want to say I still think it was a mistake killing off Ben Urich but ..... I respect their decision.

    I agree Slick, so much more story that could've been from Ben Urich.

    Just got done with Season 1 and all I can say is: Wow!

    A few personal notes:

    - Loved the characters of Foggy, Karen, and, of course, Murdock.
    - Wilson Fisk is the best villain in the Marvel universe IMO. I hope he comes back in a future season.
    - Did not like the killing of Ben Urich. There was so much more they could do with that character.
    - Did it seem to anyone else that the season finale wrapped everything up a little too quickly?
    - I am still shocked that Karen shot Wesley. Did not see that coming at all.

    I watched "Stick" & "Shadows in the Glass" last night and those, atm, are my two favorite episodes. Hopefully I can finish the season between tonight and tomorrow.

    Foggy's my favorite character!

    What things you didn't expect to be on the show but were on the show?
    To me it was the bouncing billy clubs.

    Likewise, what things you kind of expected but weren't on the show?
    There was in me thought it will have internal monologues similar to Memento.

    Yeah, the bouncing billy clubs did a lot to convince me that this show would be a Daredevil shot. He would do all the cool things Daredevil could do. The fact that they did it in the first episode reassured me and made me OK with not seeing the costume through the run.

    For me, the thing I absolutely expected and didn't get was Ben Urich figuring out Daredevil's secret identity. As the season went on, there was clearly no place for it and I stopped expecting it (although, until things changed for obvious reasons, I still expected it in future seasons).

    My jaw literally dropped when he threw that stun stick in the first episode.

    If I recall, that was the first time I raised my eyebrows because of astonishment.

    I'm in the process of watching through the entire season again for the first time since release. I'm only 3 episodes in so far and it's still as good as I remember. My only gripe is that I think the confession scene in the first episode could have been either shorter or maybe written a bit better? Something about it does not feel right to me.
    Other than that, everything else is on point.

    Hmm, I really loved the confession scene and thought that it was beautifully written. And Cox was fantastic.

    The final ep, while good, felt more cartoony than the rest of the season. Then i realized D.Knight directed it.

    The suit looks cool in motion. Even though the cowl looks weird during close ups....

    Can't wait for season 2.....

    i do wish that ben survived this season as well, but that scene with him and fisk was pretty great regardless.

    Same. I was genuinely shocked that he didnt make it through the season. It would have been nice to get an interpretation of this scene in season 2.

    i'm willing to bet they'll use that scene but replace ben with a different character.

    hannibal does it pretty much all the time.
