All 13 episodes from the first season of the action adventure following the Marvel Comics superhero. Idealistic lawyer Matt Murdock (Charlie Cox), along with his long-time friend Foggy Nelson (Elden Henson), uses his newly established firm to tackle the rising levels of criminal activity in New York City. By night however, Murdock - who was blinded by a chemical spill as a young boy - uses his heightened senses to fight crime on the streets as vigilante Daredevil. With the influence of underworld kingpin Wilson Fisk (Vincent D'Onofrio) continuing to grow, Murdock faces a fight on two fronts to keep the city safe. The episodes are: 'Into the Ring', 'Cut Man', 'Rabbit in a Snowstorm', 'In the Blood', 'World On Fire', 'Condemned', 'Stick', 'Shadow in the Glass', 'Speak of the Devil', 'Nelson v. Murdock', 'The Path of the Righteous', 'The Ones We Leave Behind' and 'Daredevil'.

The quality of the bluray is very good, a fine-detailed picture with no anomalies and a pumping, expansive DTS-HD 5.1 soundtrack. It's a shame they didn't include any extras on the discs, there is nothing at all included here which is a shame for such an acclaimed series. It would've been nice to see how they achieved that now famous hallway fight scene, or some features about the CGI, interviews with actors but alas all we get is bare-bones. Disappointing.
However, the episodes are what matters and the discs include all 13 of the first season, which are best viewed in a few binges as per the Netflix model.
Charlie Cox is great as Matt Murdock/Daredevil. The character is all about contradictions: he's a lawyer by day yet a vigilante by night; he's blind yet he can "see" better than most. Cox does a fantastic job of bringing the character to life.
If anything, though, Cox is overshadowed by Vince D'Onofrio's portrayal of arch-enemy Wilson Fisk. The character is captivating and it's a magnificent piece of acting by D'Onofrio. It's so well acted that you almost feel a certain sympathy for Fisk despite his proclivity for extreme violence at times.
The quality of acting runs deep though. Deborah Ann Woll is great as Karen Page, as is Elden Henson as Foggy Nelson. A mention should also go out to Aylet Zurer who plays a fine role as Vanessa, Fisk's love interest, and gives us a window into The Kingpin's frailties.
Tha balance of the whole thing is great. There are the deeper, "downtime" scenes and some great action scenes too. What one likes is always in the eye of the beholder of course but I haven't enjoyed a series like this for a long time and I immediately ordered Series 2 upon finishing Series 1.
This is a very different - and much, much better - offering than Ben Affleck's Daredevil. If I had one criticism it would be that, as I previously mentioned, it doesn't really come to life until episode three or four. Episodes one and two cover a lot of "origin" stuff, which I suppose is necessary for those who know nothing about Daredevil but I think it stops the series getting properly into the swing of things for a few hours.
Nevertheless, it's still a 5 star watch as far as I'm concered.
I do not like the fact that Amazon made this a Prime-only item. People were forced to sign up, then end the membership. That is outrageous. It remains to be seen whether the US customer could actually benefit from UK Prime membership. (Since customers may already be Prime members in US, this seems like bad form on Amazon's part.)
