^I felt that Trial of the Incredible Hulk
was a pretty good Daredevil pilot for its day. Purists would've complained about the simpler black costume (but then, religious nuts would've complained about a more accurate one), but I would've liked to see it continue to series.
But these days we'd definitely expect better FX for his radar-sense shots. I've read some of the recent comics run and they're doing some impressive visuals for that.
Who are DD's main antagonists? Kingpin, Bullseye... who else? They seem pretty FX-light characters.
