    The episodes just started here, and I have been able to finally watch through the first episode. I kept falling asleep. Yesterday I finished episodes 2 and 3 in succession. And after a break, and when my food was ready .. I watched 4 and 5. Last night I watc.. 6... yeah.. I think we get it. I like it.

    Oh, not like that, I mean, it's not something I strongly recommend. It doesn't stack up to some of the just fantastic shows I've seen in the past. But compared to what's out there right now, it's in the top 5 of 'what is on tv now'.

    Watch it if you're into that type of tv, it helps me get through the lonely cold end of winter nights when I can't sleep because I feel terrible.

    But I am surprised by the main character, he's much more fun to have in the show than the trailer implied. I found some stuff pretty corny acting wise, or action wise. The super mega make believe they're trying to sell just doesn't work for me. I tend to see through it, maybe it's just my mood. Who knows.

    I have watched enough episodes that I want to finish the season. Despite that the story line doesn't feel like we will have a lot of surprises. I am certainly not sucked into the story and hoping to figure out how it develops. Who knows, plot twist surprise in the last few episodes and I am changing my opinion? I dunno.. It doesn't feel like that's going to happen to be honest.

    Overall rating, maybe a 6 or 6,5 out of 10.
    But for what's on TV right now that I watch, it kinda hits a 7 out of 10.

    I finished season 1. It indeed did not get a lot better. The story had a bit more umph to it, but that's all. I started to like his character, but him being torn between emotions and it just explodes.. it made him look like a spoiled teen that stamps his foot. I lost interest near the end. I did like it enough to continue watching, but it certainly didn't make me excited about any future season, if any.

    I do not think I will commit to watching this - the trailer did not really make me want to watch it.

    The first few episodes were way better than the trailer. But yeah, I had the same feeling. I got sucked into it, but I was also in the mood that if it wasn't that good, I'd be ok with it. It doesn't compare to Dare Devil or Luke Cage. And even Luke Cage was pushing it for me.

    I've been wanting to watch this for awhile now, but after so many comments about it...I don't know if I should now or not. :(

    Worth a try, if you still watch it on episode 3, you know the golden rule: you have to finish the season.
