There are no words to truly describe how awesome Daredevil is, the fluidity of the story, as well as the relatively small amount of screen time dedicated to the titular hero both help to keep the action sequences exciting without overpowering the main thrust of the story and characters. It is a wonderful piece of storytelling.
The focus on Vincent D’Onofrio’s Fisk allows for plenty of time to make the character more human. All too often the villain of a film or TV series is given minimal characterisation with most of their actions written off as “because they’re evil.” This is a workable solution, but can occasionally lead to the viewer questioning why the action should make sense within the realms of the narrative; for a prime example, see every James Bond villain. Also, taking the time to flesh out the shadowy figure of Fisk makes him much easier to relate to; his awkward conversation with art dealer Vanessa (Ayelet Zurer) belies a much gentler figure, albeit one who is running a criminal empire. His actions at the end of the episode convey his ruthless business manner, and show why the rest of the criminal underworld respect him so.
With so much going on, there is a worry that the show will eventually drop the ball with a plot or character, but until then, (if it does happen) there’s absolutely nothing stopping you from enjoying the ride.
