88 thoughts I had while watching 'Daredevil' episodes seven, eight, and nine
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?
