Fifth about The Seventh

Marvel’s Daredevil – Season 1

Daredevil S1Marvel’s Daredevil – Season 1: Drew Goddard’s series succeeds (mostly, and for what it’s supposed to be) by virtue of having what a film doesn’t have: time. There are as many (or probably more) quiet moments than there are action scenes; those don’t allow for character development per se, but rather character insight, and as much attention is given to the main antagonist as it’s given to the protagonist. All that results in a more interesting show than the genre suggests. The cast (Deborah Ann Woll, Charlie Cox and Vincent D’Onofrio in particular) is solid, bringing in some gravitas. The action scenes are gritty and small-scale, but the violence is, at times, needlessly high.
