Life is not about the second chances. It's about a little mouse and his voyage to an exciting new land. That, my friend, is what life is.

Sir, do you have any Warrants?

Thanks for reminding me about it. I keep forgetting to put the DVDs on my wishlist.

My family got me the BD set for Christmas (I think because they wanted to watch it too ;)) and it's a truly amazing release. :joy:

I wish that I had enough to get the mega Blu set.

But I did just buy the complete series set of Taxi, so...

Caught the first episode of Daredevil. Loved it! Can't wait to watch the second one tomorrow. :)

Just got done with the 7th episode. This show has gotten progressively better, to my delight, and Stick is an awesome character. I'm really hooked, now, but unfortunately I have too much to do today, so I can't watch anymore episodes until tomorrow (and I'll also have to watch the season premiere of GOT tomorrow, as well).

I finished it off. Loved it. Especially on a character level. By the end I was really on the side of Matt and his friends and was pulling for them to succeed. I also really liked that Kingpin and his men got a lot of focus which easily made him my favorite villain in the whole Marvel Movie Universe. Of course I could quibble about the speed of the show, but it honestly didn't bother me at all. I was engaged in every moment.

Here's hoping it did well enough to merit a second season, because I want to see more of these characters. Though I think the hints as to what we're going to get next are pretty obvious just based on Stick.

Daredevil seems to get progressively better. Just finished episode 4, and I haven't been this engaged by a TV show in some time!

**cough**Game of Thrones**cough**

I'm 8 episodes in, and it's great. Foggle, if you like it now, it gets even better by the end of the fifth episode. ;)

True Detective, then Breaking Bad, then Treme, then Game of Thrones. That's how I'm gonna do. ;)

Daredevil gets better as you get used to the characters. I'm betting a re-watch would do it a lot of additional good, too.

Also, that fight scene at the end of episode 2 deserves a lot of credit.

Oh god, yes! It looks like somebody took notes from old-school Bruce Lee films. No shaky cam bull-shit at all. Just straight up excellent choreography from a stationary camera where you could see all of the action. Nothing else is there to enhance the effects. The action is comprised entirely of good stunt-men pretending to beat the crap out of each other.
