We are so close now. I’m getting ready to go to bed, and when I wake up, Daredevil will start airing at 9.01am in my time zone (Central European Time). Yes, I realize that I live in the best time zone possible for taking the day off work and binge-watching Daredevil. The snacks have been purchased, and I know there’s enough coffee in the house to get me through the day.
I haven’t been able to post quite as religiously as I had intended to over the last few days. Part of the reason was some real world time constraints, but another part of it was the massive onslaught of news coming from everywhere that I didn’t feel the pressure to keep you guys entertained. Besides, just keeping my Facebook and Twitter accounts updated has been work enough. Suddenly, everyone is talking about Daredevil, and that’s definitely an odd feeling.
In case you’re wondering, I did cave and read all the reviews, and I don’t think it’s spoiled the experience for me. Most of them are, as you know, very positive. I learned something else, though: That infographic I made of all the casting information on IMDB is wildly inaccurate. Don’t blame me, though. Blame IMDB (or whoever at Marvel or Netflix who supplies the information). But that’s good. If you thought it had too much in terms of potential spoilers, consider that damage undone.
So with fewer than ten hours to go, I guess it’s time to start looking at what comes next and what the ground rules are going to be. I will watch all episodes right when they start airing, but I will also stay away from social media, and the Internet in general. When I’m back online, I’ll be sure to not spoil anything for anyone, posts will have clear warnings at the top, and also directions on what can and can’t go in the comments. I don’t yet know what kinds of posts I’ll be writing (by theme?, by episode?), as that depends entirely on what I think of the show, in all its aspects.
So, with that, I’m going to sign off. Below is one of my favorite clips from the last couple of days (there’s also the scene at the end of this interview). Enjoy, and I’ll see you on the other side!
