Okay, so for those who want to join in, a few of us are planning to have a live re-watch and discussion/chat of Season 1 of Marvel's Daredevil (seeing as we all binge-watched it at different times and so missed out on the usual weekly chat and squeeing of a weekly season).

We're planning to start with Episode 1 at 9pm (GMT) on Monday 1 June. :)

I have to say, overall, this first episode is just SUCH a good introduction to who and what Matt/Daredevil is. From his past, to his present, to what he becomes and why. It has a lot of "scene setting" to do, and it does it perfectly. :)

The flashbacks are not overdone which is good. You just get enough of the past

Love that within a few minutes he is shirtless! If you didn't fall in love with him before the opening credits you did now !!!

I love how this scene also completely and succinctly summarises Matt and Foggy's whole friendship. :)

I pretty much fell in love with Foggy's character (adorkable love, not phwoooar! love) in that phone call with Matt. :)

I really love it when he answers Foggy, who asks how it was and he wryly replies, "Violent!"

One thing we must be grateful for is the quite astonishing amounts of not only whump but also of shirtless Matt this show gives us. :D

Heee. I kinda love Matt being "blind" and making blind jokes ("he can have the view") and pretending he can't tell someone is holding out their hand to shake etc.

And Foggy rolling his eyes as Matt charms the real estate agent. ;)

Alipeeps
June 1st, 2015, 12:19 PM
This is the only bit of the show/this episode that I find a bit clunky... where they randomly explain to the real estate agent how they want to run their law practice. It's necessary exposition that they had to get in somehow but it feels forced to me.

Alipeeps
June 1st, 2015, 12:20 PM
I freaking loooooove Matt and Foggy in this scene.

"I'm Matt. He's Foggy." and the way they banter with each other in front of Karen. And when they check their watches! :lol:

I love how, throughout the series, even though he and Foggy are a partnership, you see Matt is very much the one in control, the one making the decisions and the rules. And Foggy, and Karen, just naturally defer to him.

I dunno if it's just when he's doing his American accent for this show, but Charlie Cox has the most amazing voice, there's like a ridiculously rough, low undertone to it... like his voice is coming from low in this throat.

I love it. :D

I love it when the cop threatens Matt and he just sits there, doesn't even react, and I always imagine that he's feeling supremely confident in the face of such a threat, thinking to himself that he could beat the **** out of this jerk with just his pinky. :)

I also really like Matt's professionalism as a lawyer. He just has the gravitas he needs to persuade me I'd want him to be my lawyer if I'd been arrested for murder. Um, well, yeah, the fact that he's smart, hot and charming helps too! ;)

Love how it doesn't even occur to Matt at first that the lights are off (just shows how often he brings anyone to his place).

One of the things I love about Daredevil being PG-16 too is that they can have casual swearing where, in real life, people totally would swear. Like Karen's "holy ****!" at the billboard.

One thing I've noticed in this show, and that I find interesting, is when Matt wears his glasses. He pretty much wears them all the time except around Foggy and Claire. Even as the show progresses and Karen becomes part of the team etc, he still wears his glasses around her. In fact, there's two scenes where he's not wearing them and Karen comes in and he immediately puts his glasses on.

The exception is in this scene in this first episode where he takes his glasses off to talk to her about his loss of vision etc... and I love that because it's clearly a deliberate move on his part to instill confidence, to make her feel connected and trusted. It's intimate and he knows that.

Another thing I love about this show is all the different languages and the fact that they use subtitles. That two non-English native-speakers speak to each other in their own language, as they freaking would in real life!

Yes. I love how much work he has put into this part... the physical training, the accent and especially the blindness.

I did a whole post on tumblr about how he sits down/gets up from chairs and moves them as he does. It's just such a small, but very telling, thing that really sells the blindness.

Oooh and I love him all cuddled up on the sofa, pretending to sleep and the way he just opens his eyes as Karen sneaks out.

God, yes. It's beautiful. The slow drip of red blood. I've printed out a screencap of that image cos I badly want to do fanart of it. Also love the way he lifts himself up almost in a press-up position, balanced between hands and feet. It's ridiculously sexy. :D

The other fab thing about this show being PG-16 and it being a series, not a movie, is that the fight scenes/whump is realistic. Like, he gets TIRED when fighting, he staggers and slumps over, he's getting hit, as well as hitting, and it shows. As it freaking should!

And the whump is a natural consequence of the fight scenes. So many shows/movies just gloss over the whump - the hero is shot or stabbed or beaten and they grimace a bit, shake it off, and carry on as normal. No. Matt is a completely human man (super senses aside) getting into knock down, drag out fights and that has consequences. He takes DAMAGE.

I think I've mentioned before on tumblr that someone somewhere, probably in the continuity department, must have kept some kind of record of where and what injuries Matt has received over the course of the season, particularly the ones that were stitched/would leave scars, so that every time he's shirtless (:D) the appropriate make-up can be applied.

Apropos of nothing, I have a new career goal... ;)

I swear Charlie is some kind of human chameleon. His face can look SO different in this show... like his face there in the boxing gym, without his glasses, looks totally different to his "lawyer with glasses" face, which is again totally different to his "lying beaten and bloody on Claire's couch without glasses" face, which again is totally different to his "clean-shaven preppy student with glasses" face... etc etc etc...

He does look totally different all of the time - I don't know how he does it but when needed he looks like a really tough guy and then a little puppy dog - it's weird

You're not wrong. :D



I think I've mentioned before on tumblr that someone somewhere, probably in the continuity department, must have kept some kind of record of where and what injuries Matt has received over the course of the season, particularly the ones that were stitched/would leave scars, so that every time he's shirtless (:D) the appropriate make-up can be applied.

Apropos of nothing, I have a new career goal... ;)

Yet *another* thing Charlie has had to learn for this show. I love that he has put SO much work into this. He comes across as such a sweet puppy in real life but he has absolutely worked his (gorgeous) ass off to get this part just right. :)

Well, SheppyD is right. It's not continuity but lazy filming. One is in ep 2 on a close-up and the second is in ep, um, 11? Another close-up. Don't want to spoil here unless you don't mind? (I know you've obviously seen all the eps! :lol: )

I always think he looks totally different in ep 2 in the whump scenes at the start than any other time - his face looks longer - probably due to his messed up hair

Yes! His face really looks different then. And even between scenes in that part of the episode too... his face when he gets up and staggers towards the kitchen (before he passes out) looks very different from his face when he's on the couch. I think it's maybe the lighting?

But yeah, the scenes where he's on the couch in ep 2, his face looks totally different than how it does any other time. I do think the mussed up hair must have something to do with it.

In ep 2, where Matt's lung collpases, Claire squirts iodine onto his chest, but nothing comes out of the bottle!

Yeah, I've always thought it was a bit odd that he would pull the mask up but I can fanwank that he was pretty darn out of it at that point.

I loooove how she lifts his head (and his hair is all tousled and blood-soaked!) and gently feels for head wounds.


Claire is my favourite female on the show. RD just is so believable and sincere and just really sounds convincing.

RD is frakking amazing in this role. And Claire is such a fab character. I love that she's strong and practical but also vulnerable, and sarcastic and whimsical, and that she is *honest* - she makes no bones about the fact that she likes Matt and fancies him but she's also sensible and refuses to let herself get involved with him.

And aside from all that, the character provides such a freaking amazing excuse/reason to have Matt injured (and shirtless!) and to actually see him getting treated for his wounds. We would not be able to have the whump that we have in this show if there wasn't a Claire to treat his wounds "off the books".

Structurally, this episode works SO well, interspersing current day whump with backstory and tying it all in together. It's beautifully done. But I am a tart and I just want to watch the whump over and over.

(Seriously, I wish I had some kind of video editing software so I could edit myself a video of just all the whumpy bits from Daredevil all in one lovely big whumpy clip :D)

I'm very impatient. But it is a well crafted ep, IMO. I like the backstory. However, sometimes I just need to get straight to the whump as I just can't wait! :D

Yes it would be so much easier to have the edited version of Matt only - they should sell the whumpers cut

Maybe there's a whump director's cut with added scenes? :D

OKay, are we ready to move on? Are we ready for the freaking epic deliciousness that is the pneumothorax? (Eeep, it's like we died and went to whump fanfic heaven!! :D)

Um . . . YES!!!

Yup, I think we all feel the same. :D (I do the same with a lot of my fave whumpy SGA eps too - e.g. 38 Minutes. I can't be doing with no Halling and his tea ceremony, I just want whumpy SWhep!) :)

Love the way the flashback cuts straight to Matt waking up gasping, as if having suffered a bad dream, but then we realise it's something worse! The only slight annoyance for me here is that Claire asks, "What is it, what's wrong?" Um, he can't breathe??? :lol: As a seasoned whumper, I was like shouting out, "It's a freaking pneumothorax, you daft moo!!! " ;)

I'm actually really hoping we get some behind the scenes stuff on the DVD. There has been next to no behind the scenes stuff - even photos, never mind vids etc - from this show, presumably because they kept it all so top secret while filming...

Am gonna carry on now and will FF to the pneumothorax scene then pause to chat. :D

Yes!! I mean, FFS, we're not even medically trained but every single one of us knew immediately that a) he couldn't breathe (that was pretty darn obvious Claire!) and that b) it was almost certainly a pneumothorax! :lol:

However, I'm willing to let it slide just because it gave us the deliciousness of Matt gasping desperately, " I can't... I can't... breathe!!"


When she fiddles around with her bag it slightly digs into him and he moves his arm to protect his big wound and I love that

Ah now, I've always read that moment a little differently. When he's gasping and struggling for breathe he instinctively curling in on himself, lifting his back up from the sofa, his whole body tensing... and he's got a stab wound and broken ribs - that tension, that pulling upwards, has got to hurt like a b*stard. But at the time he's more focused on the fact that he can't freaking BREATHE. But once that's sorted, once he can breathe and is desperately sucking in air and relaxing back onto the sofa, the pain in his ribs/side comes to the fore and he instinctively cradles the source of his pain.

(I freaking love that little touch. I may have spent far too much time thinking about that gesture. :D)

I seriously need, if not every whump ep throughout the season, someone to just edit together for me those three scenes... Matt unconscious on the floor/staggering to his feet and then collapsing.... Matt waking up on Claire's sofa and their conversation... and then the pneumothorax scene.

I would happily watch that vid over and over and over (and the fast forward button on my remote would see a lot less use! :lol:)
