All season 1 episodes of Daredevil are currently streaming on Netflix.
How about all of you? Did you love it as much as everyone here? Did you accidentally watch Hemlock Grove and wonder why Matt Murdock was a werewolf, not blind, and not called Matt Murdock (Seriously, after episode 1 you should have figured out something was wrong. The whole Hemlock Grove/Daredevil mix-up is kind of on you)? Sound off with your praise in the comments below.
