"This is easily the best of Marvel's three shows so far, and quickly moves towards the front of the overall superhero TV pack," said Alan Sepinwall of Hitfix.

"The pulpy style and brutality (torture is one of Daredevil's tools) clearly seek a higher sense of realism, which must be balanced against the notion of a blind superhero who can shimmy up walls and whose spectacularly hearing lets him to function, among other things, as a human lie detector. Helpfully, Cox brings the necessary mix of grit and Marvel-esque self-doubts to the dual role," wrote Variety's Brian Lowry of Daredevil.
