TV Show Review: Netflix’s Daredevil

Posted on by

I am always consuming stories. To me, I don’t care if it’s from a TV show, a movie, a book, or a well-written video game; stories are stories to me, and the medium really doesn’t matter to me.

A clear master of the Urban Fantasy genre, Jim Butcher has created a world that I would love to live in. Currently composed of fifteen books (of a planned twenty-three or so) and a multitude of short stories, The Dresden Files takes the genre to a level I’ve never seen before or since.
