If We Were Having Coffee: Netflix’s Daredevil

Daredevil having a cup of coffee

Daredevil having a cup of coffeeIf we were having coffee, I’d talk to you about Daredevil. Last week, I shared that I started watching the show. I told myself I wasn’t going to binge watch it. Instead, I decided that I was going to take my time and enjoy the series slowly.

That didn’t happen. I consumed the final 9 episodes in two days. It was so good that I couldn’t stop watching. Plus, my Mom, nephew, and my friends kept talking about the show. I felt a little left out like they were privy to some super cool secret. They knew not to say anything thing to me about the show because I wasn’t done with the series, and I don’t suffer spoilers.

In last week’s coffee comments, Widdershins said that the show was like a 13 episode movie. That statement along with my feeling of abandonment from my friends and family only intensified my need to finish the show. So, it’s really their faults rather than my lack of discipline that I didn’t achieve my viewing goals.

 I laughed and laughed when I saw this on Facebook. 

I was hoping that Daredevil wouldn’t disappoint me like Gotham. While I loved the actors in Gotham, I quickly got tired of the parade characters. Within the first few episodes, the audience had been introduced to half of the villain/alley line-up. Note: I know this is not completely true. I’m exaggerating for effect. 

I felt like the show was introducing too many characters too soon, and they were doing it in the most unclever ways. I was bored with the entire show, I didn’t care about a lot of the characters, and the writing seemed a little cheesy. I had high hopes for Gotham, but I just didn’t like the show. I may give the show another chance this summer… Maybe.

Daredevil was nothing like that. Great writing, great direction, great acting, great character development, and awesome action… Netflix did it right.

If we were chatting at Starbucks, I’d want to talk to you about the villain (OMG, I love the villain. I always have.), but I’m not sure if you’ve seen the show or not, and I don’t want to spoil anything. I hate spoilers. There are rules about these things.

If we were having coffee, I’d promise that I wouldn’t gush over Daredevil anymore until Season 2 comes out. That’s right! Nextflix ordered a second season. Yaaasssss!

I’d also give you an A to Z challenge update. I’m not going to lie. While this has been a better experience than I expected, I’m ready to see the tail end of this challenge. It has been great for my stats, and I’ve shared A LOT of education posts I’ve been too lazy meaning to write.  I had to make some changes from my original plan, but I’m pretty happy with what I’ve posted. One unexpected consequence of the challenge has been inspiration. I have a ton of new blog post ideas that have been inspired by me reading other bloggers. So, April 2015 A to Z has been  a pretty awesome experience. Yay!

This Week’s A to Z Posts:

O was for Oceans: Deep Sea Dive

  1. I’ve seen the first episode of Daredevil but haven’t seen the rest of it. From the sounds of it, things really pick up. 🙂

    Good luck with the last few days of A to Z—I’m glad it’s winding down, though I’ll be a bit sad to say goodbye to it for another year!

    • Thanks. I’m so glad I did it. I’ve gotten a lot of shares and views from my ed posts. I just wish we educators would comment more.

      I’m super proud that I’ve kept up with Coffee Share. I didn’t think I’d be able, but they are so fun to write and read each week. I’ll do a better job of preparing for A to Z next year. #YeahRight

      • I wonder if a lot of people are having a difficult time with the commenting—I’ve been having a hard time keeping up with the comments at the Monster some days, and that hasn’t left me a lot of time to comment elsewhere, unfortunately.

        I’m incredibly pleased that so many who are doing A to Z have also kept up with the coffee share. I’m not sure that I would’ve done so if I hadn’t been hosting the link-up! It’s a lot to keep up with—but I think it says something amazing about a depth of community that what started as some silly coffee post thing is building. 🙂

      • Absolutely. And I’m ready to be writing closer to when I actually publish again–I prewrote almost all my A-Z posts, so by the time they went up I’d mostly forgotten them. Whoops!
