REVIEW: Daredevil – “Rabbit in a Snow Storm”

I'm Jeffrey Rex Episode Review - Daredevil - Rabbit in a snow stormMarvel’s Daredevil is a new Netflix show from the same universe as the Avengers films. Expect spoilers for every review this season, though I’m going to try to limit spoilery details. “Rabbit in a Snow Storm” is the third episode of the first season, and in it Foggy and Matt are handed their first guilty client.

All roads lead to Wilson Fisk. In what was a very interesting episode, we saw just how determined Matt Murdock can be in the face of evil. Matt was eager to uncover any and every clue, though unable to see just what kind of people hired Foggy and him. I cannot wait to see what Wilson Fisk will be like in this show, and the teaser scene at the very end of this episode was absolutely perfect.

“That’s not a client, that’s a shark in a skin-suit”

Great quote by Foggy Nelson, and that’s what’s interesting about Nelson & Murdock. They’re clean, ethical, they have a moral compass – unlike many other defence attorneys Fisk has worked with. They clearly didn’t want this guilty client, but Matt felt something was amiss.

The episode showed us Ben Urich (played by Vondie Curtis-Hall), a journalist for the New York Bulletin. I must admit, I didn’t find him compelling, actually I thought he was a bland stereotypical character. With that having been said, however, I am intrigued by the story Page gives him.

I thought the episode was surprisingly light on the vigilantism, and heavy on the law order – yet, there were a couple shocking moments delivered by Healy.

Overall it was a good episode, but the B-story didn’t really function for me, due to the stereotypical nature of Ben Urich.
