Netflix's "Daredevil" - Don't Miss This Wonderful Adaptation! - A Review by Wayne Rée

Daredevil fans have been nervously wringing their hands for many months ever since the Netflix web series was greenlighted and set for production.

From the announcement of the series creator/ writer Drew Goddard and Steven S. DeKnight as showrunner, to Charlie Cox joining the cast as titular character Matt Murdoch/ Daredevil, the geek community simply couldn't wait for the series to premiere! Added to this was the rousing fan approval when Vincent D'onofrio was confirmed to be Daredevil's main nemesis, Kingpin.

When the series finally aired on 10 April, Red Dot Diva saw that most fans couldn't help but binge-watch all 13 episodes!

Red Dot Diva has only finished watching the first episode of "Daredevil" a few minutes ago and found the series to be dark, intense, visceral, entertaining and very promising. Naturally, much of the promises laid in those gorgeous biceps and abs of Matt Murdoch (Charlie Cox). She really didn't expect the visuals to be that beautiful.

W00t! Case in point. 'Nuff said

Although, she really enjoyed (Truth, okay!) Charlie Cox's portrayal of the charming but inwardly seething-angry persona that inhabits Hell Kitchen's vigilante, Daredevil.

Now, Red Dot Diva's geek pal and writer Wayne Rée, who is a ardent Daredevil fan, has watched the entire series. Here is his mainly spoiler-free review of Netflix's "Daredevil":
