In | #NOTlistening Ep.173 - He's the Blind One right? | myself , Ash and Will finally got to have a little discussion about the MARVEL/NETFLIX show "DareDevil". A show that ALL of us can finally agree on. A Show all three of us can finally get behind. A Show all three of us can talk about without Will shutting us down........In summary DareDevil is a great show and IF you haven't watched it yet........then you ARE missing out!
I personally am considered a DC fan. I like my Batman. I think Wonder Woman kicks more arse than Black Widow ever would. I prefer Flash over Quicksilver anyday. The Green Arrow is far more interesting than Hawkeye. The Justice League is more appealing than the impressive Avengers.....in my eyes!.
BUT with that, comes the fact I like the tone of DC compared to Marvel. Marvel, especially the Movies, have a lighter tone to them. A Feel of Family and cartoonish qualities. I am still a fan of these films and will continue to be until the end, BUT I am still more excited about Batman V Superman and Suicide Squad.
......then DareDevil arrived.......and shocked me.
When I heard they were making a Netflix series of MARVEL shows beginning with DareDevil, I was interested but I just had the hope they wouldn't make them like that god awful ABC show "Marvels Agent of Shield" because I just wasn't ready to give over 13 hours to that.
Instead, I was given a show that exceeded my expectations, shocked me, thrilled me and threw a shit tonne of darkness at me for 13 hours. A Show that I call
The Breaking Bad of Superhero Shows
Again, if you haven't watched it yet, go watch it! I mean it's a bloody excellent show with some excellent performances and epic acting. Charlie Cox as Matt Murdock (DareDevil) is almost perfect. He sure does erase any memory we have of Affleck as Daredevil which bodes well for us to watch him in the next Batman film.
BUT....we all know the one man who stole the show.......Mr Vincent D'Onofrio playing Wilson Frisk (The Kingpin).
So much about this guy is beautiful. The Acting, the presence, the subtle character traits! THIS guy simply grabbed this show by the bollocks, twisted them until they came off, threw them on the table and let his dog eat them!.....He OWNED this show! All he had to do was turn up on set and fart excellence. He is that Good!.....Seriously WHY HAVEN'T YOU WATCHED IT YET...and if you have, I am sorry for shouting.....but seriously that guy next to you hasn't watched it yet!....poke him with a stick and give him a bruise to remind him!
Anyway, Check out the Podcast! It's only 10 minutes, I am sure you have spent longer searching for porn, so I know you have the time to press play.
