We meet again, “Daredevil” fans. If you’re joining this recap already in progress, part one is here and part two is here!

With “Daredevil” eschewing the traditional format of television by releasing the entire first season at once, recapping becomes a bit tricky. Binge-watch the entire series in one go and I risk spoiling everything and being stoned in the digital streets. But binge-watch too slowly and I become that person who discovered “Breaking Bad” in the last season.

Over the next couple of weeks, I’ll be giving my thoughts on Marvel’s “Daredevil” in all their stream-of-consciousness glory. It’s like “MST3K,” only without the robots and less funny.

#1. Flee for you life, Asian businessman! 
#2. Businessman owns a desert eagle he can barely pick up, which means he skipped arm day.
#3. Um, excuse me? That should’ve kicked like a son of a bitch.
#4. Is that sword magic? Did it just cauterize the wound? That’s not a lightsaber. Shenanigans. 
#5. Hollywood is giving me very high expectations as to the battle prowess of blind guys.
#6. Foggy wants to punch Daredevil. Foggy also wants to sometimes punch Matt. Win/win.
#7. Karen now has mace because she’s the most realistic portrayal of a ‘Regular Jane’ with agency on television ever. This makes me happy for progress and sad it’s been so slow.
#8. Is that how people read Braille? By moving their hands in opposite directions over the same line?
#9. Distractions get you tazed, bro. Somehow cross-stitch that on a sampler.
#10. Matt’s mom isn’t dead? Where the hell is she? Probably hiding somewhere waiting to pop up like a plot point bogeyman. 
#11. I see the obligatory old man mentor has arrived.
#12. Stick’s been gone 20 years but now he’s back to fix everything with patronization and secrets.
#13. This entire car scene between Urich and Karen is giving me an anxiety attack. Y’all gonna get murdered.
#14. Awwww, Matt Murdock has “Princess and the Pea” skin. 
#15. DARKNESS. NO VISION. Stick is Old Man Batman.
#16. “The kind you don’t want in your world.” You mean the non-mystical world?
#17. Why does Jesus look like he’s doing his impression of the Fonz?
#18. Once again, Karen reacts like a normal person and puts that henchman on the ground.
#19. Foggy comes to the rescue but Karen didn’t really need it. She’s a damsel, she’s in distress, she was handling this. Have a nice day.
#20. But hey, always nice to see a minion take a baseball bat to the face.
#21. Good job Matt Murdock, you just let a demon magic child or something get away. Also, actual good job, Stick. At least ONE of you isn’t going to let magic Japanese demon children run loose in the city.
#22. Daredevil’s commitment to showing how much fighting winds all participants is admirable.
#23. Great, now Foggy is in on Karen and Urich’s project “Get Murdered By The Yakuza”
#24. Of course Stick kept the bracelet, you obtuse idiot. Use your grey matter. He left to protect you and/or keep himself from getting attached.
#25. Mystery man has some serious scars. My lack of Daredevil/Iron Fist knowledge is working against me here! Who is this?
