Daredevil 1st episode review


While I have not seen last nights episode, I am still encouraged by this sudden wave to comic book properties to the small screen. However, as with all things comic book properties, the transition from one medium to another can be boost to the property or a complete bust. Take the Wonder Woman tv series with Linda Carter which last three years on network tv and yet can not make the transition to the big screen or even return back to its tv roots. The latest incarnation was a pilot from David E. Kelley which was decent enough update to these comic book character but could not get green light to make more. Amazon is another version on WW which the CW was going to do last year but had to hold off to rework the storyline; this is just but series one to keep an eye for but there’s more.

Powers by Michael Bendis was another comic book property that seems to be on hold. The premise can easily translate to the small screen as cops are on the beat to solve murders of supers. A crime drama with a touch of superpowered elements could work provided the stories and characters provided they are compelling to the audience to invest the time. I’m just hoping that the news of the second episode of SHIELD will be just a hiccup along the way.

To the surprise of no one, Disney’s Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.Ddelivered impressive numbers during its ABC premiere Tuesday night. The numbers show that 11.9 million viewers tuned in to watch the premiere along with a score of 4.6 adults 18-49 rating. As Entertainment Weekly points out, that makes S.H.I.E.L.D. TV’s highest-rated drama debut in almost four years.

Given S.H.I.E.L.D.’s time slot — 8 p.m. with no lead-in — the numbers become even more impressive given that the show had to compete with NBC’s The Voice and CBS’s NCIS – two of the most popular shows on television. Not only did S.H.I.E.L.D. compete with the hefty competition, it actually ended up tying The Voice in the overall demo (4.6) and resoundingly beat NCIS, which came in at 3.4, although S.H.I.E.L.D. still lost to NCIS in total viewers at 19.4 million.
