Netflix' Daredevil

If the Ivory Tower is the brain of the board, and the Transformers discussion is its heart, then General Discussions is the waste disposal pipe. Or kidney. Or something suitably pulpy and soft, like 4 week old bananas.

It's up! And it's pretty amazing so far!

The fire extinguisher. A definite [composite word including 'f*ck'] yeah Marvel moment.

Or do one big poo in the morning and another one in the afternoon. I bet they weren't even excited by and then subsequently disappointed by Star Wars Prequels. Or have a glass full of spare change near their beds. That they don't have.

SPOILER

Was this the first legit *death* of an actual Marvel character in the Cinematic Universe? If so, dude, WTF?!?!

They even said "They never got around to having kids," so having a younger Ben take up the name seems out of the question. Seriously, W...T...F? And making him black COMPOUNDS the Fs. They made the character black...and killed him FIRST? WTF?!?!

Nah.

I'm going to spoiler tag this anyway, just to be on the safe side.

ANYWAY I HAVE WATCHED ALL OF THE DAREDEVIL AND IT IS AMAZE.

So many awesome little easter eggs. The casting's superb. It's all just ace. Didn't like everything being bathed in yellow, but am going to assume that's what America looks like.
Spoilerage wrote:Was really impressed by the way they handled The Hand, because that mystical supernatural shiznit's going to need to be accepted by the viewer before they do Iron Fist. Loved the reference to Nobu "going up in smoke".

Not quite sure about the final suit. Movements in it don't really look natural or comfortable. Hopefully that'll change.
Wonder if they'll tie in Jess Jones's origin to the same accident. EXCITED FOR MORE NOW PLEASE.

spoiler wrote:Yeah, I left out Stane and Erskine because they're dead in the comics anyway. Admittedly so's Victoria Hand, but her death was under quite different circumstances. But yeah, there's been plenty of buckets kicked.

And back to specifically Daredevil finale related spoilers...

To be honest, it was The Owl being killed off that surprised me more than Ben
