Nice! I wasn't exactly exited about this event either.
But after reading the first two issues. I'm pretty interested in what's going on with Daredevil.

Posted by doordoor123

sounds like youre telling the news.  
Do people really like individual unscripteds? 
This felt uncomfortable for me to watch. When you look comfortable, i feel comfortable. And you look so much more comfortable and natural with someone there beside you.

Great review. I am very interested in the direction of this arc. 

Posted by FLStyle
@doordoor123: Agreed.
 
Daredevil is going in a great direction at the moment, long may it continue, despite what damage it may do to his psyche.

I'm still curious as to how Ghost Rider and Punisher are gonna play into this. Punisher was still Franken Castle last time I checked

Posted by Bearded Justice

pretty good issue.  not enough Moon Knight though.  and Ghost Rider is always cool

kill them all DD

I liked this format.
 
Babs doesn't waste time here. It ends up feeling a little like a book report, but the lack of rambling in this video was very refreshing. Especially when two hosts are involved, there tends to be unnecessary dead space and time spent on unimportant details that makes me skip around in the Unscripted reviews.
 
Part of this may be due to the fact when you're with someone else, you want to have more of a discussion, but we end up watching Babs and G-Man pointing to pages in the book that we can't see while they desperately try to avoid spoilers. This format is much more efficient and enjoyable.
 
While G-Man has a broader knowledge of the characters' backgrounds and publishing history, Babs puts emphasis on general issues of quality and the psychological/philosophical implications of character development.

Dare Devil is my favorite comic, I am loving Shadowland. I thought this was a good issue. Im really looking forward to the next.

I haven't been reading Daredevil at all... Is this event new reader friendly?
I'm glad you liked this issue Sara, because I know that any time you recommend a Daredevil book, I will like it...

Posted by carnivalofsins00

Yes, the art is definitely beautiful.

Posted by Realpolitix

Black-suited Daredevil "suits" him well.

Posted by innocence

to me it seems too predictable. i mean, it's a really interesting series so far, but i have a feeling in the last issue Daredevil will become a hero once again.

Posted by NXH

Pleased to hear you enjoy this issue, Babs. =] 
Why the change of heart?

Yes Shadowland #1 and 2 and the Daredevil issues that go with it are new reader friendly.

its KINDof new reader friendly. I dont know who those people sitting in a circle that keep talking about matt murdock are and i dont know his friends but other than that id say ive been enjoying it. I hevent read Daredevil till now and im really liking it.

"Change his code of ethics over night?" I wouldn't say that. What I love about Shadowland is that this isn't coming out of the blue. This is actually the result of a gradual progression of Matt's psyche since Bendis was writing the Daredevil title. I'm still ecstatic about this event, and this issue was not a let down. Very good stuff. I just hope that this doesn't turn out to be some some sorta "Daredevil's under mind control" or somethin'. That would probably be the only thing in the world that would ruin this event for me. Definitely looking forward to seeing how this unfolds. 
 
Loved the review. It cut straight to the point, gave us what you thought about it, and I found it very enjoyable. Good job.

Posted by Joe Venom
@doordoor123: not I
 
This actually feels scripted, now I'm not saying that it wasn't informative because it was, its just that I didn't feel this really needed to be a video, Babs could have gotten the same points across in a written review. The duo reviews were much better to me just 2 people talking comics, mixing it up giving these vidz that real unscripted feel.

Daredevil is one ofmy fav comics
Posted by Namor1987

Babs you seemed to kinda rush this review. You kinda just spat a 4 out of 5 real fast

Posted by ShawnMichael

Iron Fist should have more spotlight in this series seeing as he was once Daredevil...

@Namor1987: 
You feel that's not an improvement over something like this?
 
"So should we give ratings now, or later?"
"Well, we could give them now, before we get into things."
"Ok."
"So you want to go, or...?"
"Me first?"
"Why not?"
"Oh, ok, then. I know you'll disagree, because you like these characters more."
"Well, yeah, I started in issue #183, I think, when [insert plot detail here]--"
"Well, I don't usually care for these characters, but this issue was good. Nothing special."
"So, what's the rating?"
"I was between two ratings, and I don't like giving half stars, so I gave it a 3."
"Wow, ok."
"Would be a 3.5, but the art here wasn't really my cup of tea and the roster doesn't excite me."
"Ok."
"What about you?"
"Well, I really love these characters and I think [writer name here] has been taking the plot in all crazy directions, so I was excited for this issue. I was really looking forward to it."
[silence]
"Ok."
"I gave it a 4.5"
"Wow, that's pretty good. So you really liked it."  
"Yeah."
[...] Etc, etc.
 
Streamlining it saves so much awkwardness. I'd much rather save more time for the plot and character development than on figuring out the ratings. 
 
I'd like to stress that while this post was slightly tongue in cheek with the dialogue, I mean no disrespect to G-Man or Babs. It's just an unscripted, less edited conversational discussion ends up being much more difficult to focus on and less informational than a straightforward review.
 
I really enjoyed this review, Babs. I'm not opposed to the dual review system, if there's a more structured way of presenting it, or if it gets tighter editing. In the meantime, keep up the great work! :)

I liked this review better than the last one.Babs seemed sad and uninterested in Shadowland #1.

That's a really good point, but I have a feeling his time will come. 
 
I actually love Iron Fist and I would love to see more of him here as well!

Can't wait till shadowland is over sorry but i'm way to wooried about Matt Murdock to enjoy this
Posted by spider-pig23

DAMMIT! This review is SCRIPTED!

Posted by longbowhunter

I enjoyed Shadowland for the most part. The exception being the Bullseye funeral one-shot. Its nice that Daredevil's dark little corner of the Marvel universe is in the spotlight for a minute.

I know how you feel.It's like you want to read Shadowland because you're a DD fan but you can't help feeling he will die at the end of it.

Shadowland is really shocking and it is good to see the "street" level heroes united. Plus i am stoked bout Ghost Rider

i usually dilike and find most of the video reviews boring but this was very good. I didnt find it rushed at all, just to the point and Yay babs didnt make noise with her bracelets or play with her hair once! Seriously though  this was a great review, i hope they continue just being quick reviews and not boring conversations.
Posted by Jord
@doordoor123:
I agree. 
 
The vids with both G-man and Babs are SO much better.  His knowledge and wit, her energy and charisma, and their shared genuine appreciation for comics and complimentary senses of humour and style; the sum is much greater than the two parts. 
 
We understand you guys are busy, and we're thankful for the hard work you do.  But the unscripted duo reviews are what bring me back to this site.

This is the best thing to happen to the Daredevil series since I  became interested..
The plan was, awesome blind lawyer Daredevil fights street crime, and NINJAS with awesome martial arts, and has many love endeavors. But every time I tried to read a daredevil comic, it was mopey for MANY issues.. So I could only enjoy DD when he made cameos.. NOW Daredevil is taking the fight all out.. if Deadpool can earn the fans love and respect while blowing people away left and right, then the heroes and fans can suck it up and leave daredevil to what he has to do..
(just Doctor Strange may want to help keep Matt Murdock in control of the Devil ;)   )

I'm totally NOT into Billy Tan's pencils. He makes faces look so weird and they're all similar.

Edited by victimblue

Love the Unscripted reviews now. Its better when you and G-man are not together. Points are coming across in reviews far better and insights of the book is far better reviewed individually. Also love the music in the background of this review. Fits the mood of the book you were reviewing. keep it up. My opinion is that Sara and G-man should come together only if MAJOR, MAJOR events appeared...like Civil War  or Siege....Not Shadow Land. Although i love DD, he will always be a second tier character. No matter what happens in Shadow land clearly it will not affect the Marvel Universe. So bulls eye is dead....Like nobody cares. Why? Daredevil did it. If Spiderman or Ironman did it it would cause major rumblings in the Marvel Universe....Shots around the world. ....er, my opinion of course. And reason for so many guest stars in this book is simple. They are trying to make Daredevil a marketable guy with help from marketable heroes

Posted by The Mast

If you want more Iron Fist, people, lobby for an Iron Fist book. It's Daredevil's event, not Danny Rand's.

Posted by darkwolverineUSMC

I think its good the direction they're going with Daredevil. It's about time Matt sullied his hands with some good ol' fashioned violence. Plus being the leader of the hand is pretty awesome.

That poster makes me really nervous about Shadowland. I know it'll probably happen but I don't want Matt to be killed off.

Beautiful as always, Babs. Great vid.
