  1. Next to watch: "Trial of the Incredible Hulk" directed by Bill Bixby with John Rhys-Davies as The Kingpin. Marvel was obviously trying to launch a Daredevil series back then but this TV movie didn't do nearly well enough. As far as the finances that Nelson & Murdock have in this movie, I was wondering about that too. I guess their equipment and office isn't too fancy.
    1) James Wesley gave them a big check to represent the bowling-ball assassin.
    2) The Nun at the orphanage says to 'Stick' that Matt has a lot of money that his father transferred to an account in Matt's name before he was killed. It's not said whether Matt still has this money or if he's hiding it away for an emergency.
    3) Karen could be contributing some of her hush money to the cause.
    I definitely noticed some more neat easter-eggs and theme tie-ins while re-watching my favorite episodes.
