    See if they had done a sequel, here's what I thought would've been awesome. Wilson Fisk and Mariah Dillard (Stokes!....Mariah....Stokes) join forces with Madame Gao (in my headcanon, she survived....spoiler alert) to finally take full control of New York with some help from Billy Russo (that's how you get The Punisher in there).
    Of course, then Season 2 of Luke Cage happened and then all the shows slowly but surely started getting cancelled so.....that can't happen now.....crap.

    Daredevil Season 1 & 2 = Perfecto 👌
    Jessica Jones s1 = pretty good tbh!
    Luke Cage = probably my least favourite member out of the group but still his first season wasn't too bad
    Iron Fist s1 = as bad as everyone makes it out to be it really isn't. Season 2 was a big improvement and did make up for a lot of its flaws but I honestly liked it, not nearly as good as daredevil though.
    The Defenders - Despite its mixed reviews I fucking loved it. Yeah it could of been better but what can't be improved? So much fun. Second favourite show out of the lot

    I just finally watched it I have to say I’m disappointed though.
    The overall tone of the series just seems super weird. They go maximum comic book but then keep on reminding you every three seconds of how ridiculous every thing is. About 25% of the dialogue between the main characters is them arguing in disbelief about the situation.
    I didn’t find to many problems with iron fist but Luke cage seemed off. It seemed like he kept switching positions constantly. At first he’s planning on keeping his head low then he’s back super heroing I couldn’t understand his motivations at all. It was a problem with the character in general though. After Cotten mouth died and the whole diamond back being his brother thing came out of nowhere they haven’t really established a solid motivation. There’s always been this idea for him about cleaning up Harlem but then he gets back from jail in defenders and he’s like nah fam then he’s like I’m protecting this one kid who knew someone I barely knew then he’s like ok I’m full on in let’s take out the hand then he turns around and hates on Danny. It wouldn’t be as much of a problem if he wasn’t the main antagonist in nearly every argument.
    Also a lot of plot points and story beats feel incredibly contrived for instance Jessica is like I’m not here to help you guys save the city I’m just here for my client and she leaves the team then she comes back the same episode because she shakes down some hand guy and re realizes the hands behind everything like what? Her motivations are also incredibly flimsy. She doesn’t care about anything one second then she’s doing a ridiculously dangerous job for a client she just met for free then she has a problem when people need her help to save more people it’s just confusing. I would say that daredevil and iron fist make the most sense story wise but there characters rarely have time to shine thanks to all the massive exposition dumps. For me personally the show is good for the first 3 episodes but once the team is actually together all of the arguments and internal conflicts seem over exaggerated or poorly written and the characters get nowhere near enough time to bounce off each other.

    Sigourney Weaver was the only good thing about the hand but The Hand as a group was disappointing. They have been giving them such a huge buildup since daredevil season 2. But it was such an anti climatic group and I found the antagonists for the shows separately were more threatening than the hand as a group.

    I enjoyed the Defenders, though it was VERY underwhelming, considering the build up. It also felt rushed. It could've been at least 10-12 episodes.
    I hope they someday do season 2.

    They said that the city would crumble if they extracted the liquid from the dragon bones (don't know how that makes sense) but that's why they had to stop the Hand from getting the substance

  • Lori Hyslop

    You definitely need to see Jessica Jones - not even to watch the defenders just because it's something everybody needs to do because it's the best Marvel show by far

  • Alec Willey

    I feel like everyone overhyped themselves and expected way too much from Defenders. I feel like everyone expected Avengers-quality action, when from the get-go they said it’s gonna be very different from it. It’s unfortunate that Krysten Ritter believes that we won’t get a second season, because I want to see even more of these characters interacting. If Iron Fist can get a second season, so can Defenders. That’ll be all.

  • Media Hood Reviews

    I say you should at least check out Luke Cage, if not for it’s story but it’s incredible soundtrack, and avoid Iron Fist at every change you get. I was struggling to get past the first episode, so I just skipped the rest of the show and went straight to The Defenders. From what I heard about Iron Fist, I don’t think I missed much.

    Bro iron fist is great. I don’t know why people have it but it’s really good. You should watch it. I thought Luke Cage was ok but the last 3 episodes made it great and those are the ones you probably didn’t watch. You should reconsider watching the rest of the marvels Netflix MCU!

    In my opinion the plot could've been told in 3 episodes. stretching it to 8 episodes felt to me a bit watered down. plot finals resolves like a b rated movie. could not wait for it to end already. so dissapointed

    i felt like iron fist and daredevil were the two central focuses. I personally loved iron fist after episode 7. It was just boring as hell up to that point. Not bad just boring and predictable. The final few episodes of Iron first were awesome and very important for setting up the defenders

  • Dave Gunner

    Honestly, defenders was massively mediocre compared to daredevil, Jessica jones and Luke cage.
    Watching ironfist and Defenders was fairly difficult, simply because Danny rand as a character is stupid, and the actor who plays him just doesn't fit the role imo.
    I wasn't sure if it was just the director of the show, but it didn't change in the defenders

    Well it would have been the war for the new york if they actually got the elixir of life from the dragon bones. They said once the substance was extracted , the city would crumble . Meaning the substance is sort of a foundation. In my mind anyways.

    Defenders really could've gone for more episodes. There wasn't a good story arc, granted the character arcs were very good and the tension was up to the roof. Yet a coherent and a satisfing story in the whole wasn't given. Even with the budget these shows tend to have a more better story could be presented. The villians were extremely dissapointing, except for Alexandria who if they kept wouldve been better. They somehow ended up making Elektra confusing as hell. However I have to say Iron Fist actually was much much better this season. Even though he was more trouble for them then anything he actually seemed to have a character arc. Where he seemingly learned.

  • OfficialFOY
    OfficialFOY Year ago

    I'm just sad that the Netflix marvel universe has taken such a fuckin nose dive. It started out super strong with Daredevil season 1 and Jessica Jones. Great characters, tight story, cool action scenes. Luke Cage was great up until Cottonmouth got killed, then it became shit. Iron Fist never really took off but it was okay. Weak main character but the supporting cast was fine. The Defenders, though... it felt like a continuation of Iron Fist but with even worse villains. I didn't think that was even possible. Truly felt like a waste of my time. Tragic stuff.
