Daredevil - The Complete First SeasonThe First Season of Netflix’s Daredevil is collected here. Perhaps preferring views to keep watching the show on Netflix rather than shell out money for hard Blu-ray copies, the collection is noticeably light when compared to other television series. Only available on Blu-ray (no DVD), the collection includes no digital copies (as Netflix wants you to keep paying to stream the series) or any extras.

The first show in Marvel’s line of Netflix originals, Daredevil introduces us to defense attorney Matt Murdock (Charlie Cox) who, despite being blind, spends his free time fighting crime in the streets of Hell’s Kitchen. We also get Matt’s best bud Foggy (Elden Henson), their leggy secretary (Deborah Ann Woll), and the season’s big bad in the villainous Kingpin (Vincent D’Onofrio). As with the other shows which have followed the same format, the season does have its ups and downs, but it’s certainly more consistent that Marvel’s ABC properties (Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and Agent Carter).

Highlights from the season include the episode which introduced us to the famous hallway sequence (which every Netflix Marvel property has tried, and struggled, to replicate), the close of the Russian mob arc which brings Daredevil into contact with Wilson Fisk for the first time, Daredevil’s battle with Nobu (Peter Shinkoda), and the fallout from Foggy learning Matt’s big secret.

[Buena Vista Home Entertainment, $39.99]

You would think they would have released it here if they were going to. Sometimes you see series only available on DVD, not Blu-ray, but this is the first I can remember where it’s not even available for DVD. Guess there’s a chance they will always release it down the road (like when Season Two goes to home video).
