    […] El Día de la Batalla de Puebla, May 5, 1862 It is secondary holiday in Mexico (other than in Puebla). It is really just an excuse to eat Mexican food (even if a lot of it is at best just Mexican inspired) and drink Mexican beer and tequila. That works. Some interesting recipes here. Then again, Andy at AoSHQ theory is just as plausible… Wombat’s Live at Five, Cinco De Mayo, 2015 […]

    In other news, I just finished Season 1 of Daredevil on Netflix, and gave it a 5/5. Although it’s set in the same NY as the events of the first Avengers movie, it’s a gritty, street-level story. Well-plotted, well-acted, and well-produced. I also appreciate the deft touch with the Catholic angle, and I think that RSM would appreciate how they handled the old-school newsman, for the most part.

    I hear different things about Daredevil and am diffident about trying to follow it, given all the stuff I need to see on Amazon Prime.

    FWIW, I haven’t read the comics, so I was judging it without that context.
