Welcome to the TV Soup podcast, home of drinkfive.com’s television review series. In this episode we continue our discussion of Netflix's Daredevil with episodes 9 & 10, "Speak of the Devil" and "Nelson v. Murdock". This show keeps reminding us that it is the darkest of the properties set in the Marvel Cinematic Universe and the excruciating fight scene that framed "Speak of the Devil" was one of the best in the series. How Matt was able to get home that night still breathing is a testament to his inner strength and willpower. The insight into Matt and Foggy's time spent as friends and colleagues in their formative years that we see in "Nelson v. Murdock" was much needed and adds to the impact of episode 10's ending. With only 3 episodes left, we can't wait to finish up the series!
TV Soup Podcast: Daredevil, "Speak of the Devil" & "Nelson v. Murdock" Review
Just as a reminder, we're going through this series 2 episodes at a time so there are only a few weeks left before we move on to something else. We would highly recommend that you watch Daredevil in a similar fashion, since the whole thing plays out more like a movie than a TV series. Although there are a few gaffs that always come with a show based on a comic book, Daredevil has been put together pretty flawlessly in our professional opinions and we're looking forward to breaking down the rest of the episodes in the series leading up to the finale.
