    Yeah I've seen it's not got the best reviews. I've seen 4 eps and think it's decent so far. a mate of mine finished it within 1 week of it going on to Netflix and he waxed lyrical about.

    beyond 'the Defenders' - i'm not sure how much progression these shows will make. but I do sincerely hope DareDevil gets a 3rd season. definitely that show has the legs for a few more standalone seasons.

    I found Iron Fist a chore in all honesty. Started well enough but just really dropped off as it went on. Definitely weaker than Daredevil and Luke Cage.

    The Defenders is only 8 episodes long. That's good in my opinion, doesn't remove importance from the individual series. Plus The Punisher is out this year too. We're being spoiled.

    In fact it's been confirmed it will start filming later this year with a view to Season 3 airing on Netflix in the first half of 2018.

    If they do the Punisher in the same style as Logan, we will get the most violent Marvel production yet.

    I'm 6 eps in but i'm hardly blitzing my way through it. it's watchable and i'm interested to see where this 'Hand' storyline goes.
    at this stage it's definitely weaker thatn DD and LC. possibly even JJ as well.

    excellent!!

    finished iron fist a couple weeks ago.
    it was okay but definitely the weakest of the 4 'defenders' programmes.

    in any case I was determined to watch it as the defenders is starting pretty soon I believe.

    Yeah, I agree, Iron Fist started off ok but did drop off as it went on. Still, think the character has potential though if they develop it right.

    @superyids You are correct sir. All episodes available August 18th!....though I heard out of Comic Con that we may only ever get this one season of the defenders if current internal plans stay the same.

    i'm not hugely bothered about this possibly being the only season of 'the defenders'.

    I just hope they keep pumping out daredevil for a good few years (fingers crossed).

    The Defenders is up on NetFlix. Seen the first couple of EPs. Quite promising so far.

    Although I've seen there's only 8 episodes and not the standard 13. Bit disappointed by that

    I dunno, 13 episodes is a lot. It worked for Daredevil and Jessica Jones but Luke Cage started to drag on a bit and could have easily trimmed a few hours off in my opinion.

    I hated Luke Cage and gave up about 8 episodes in. Haven't watched Iron Fist at all but the reviews aren't encouraging. Not sure if it's worth trying the Defenders if I can't stand one character and know nothing about another. :laugh:

    it's over so soon. I've already watched 5 episodes and am trying to slow down. I had a mate who watched the whole thing in the first weekend and he's already moping over the fact he's finished it. IMO 13 eps is hardly a lot.
    many American shows STILL have 20+ episodes per season. back in the day 24 eps was pretty much standard practice.

    thought luke cage was great personally. not sure what's not like there.

    finished 'the defenders'. I decided to stretch it out over a few weeks rather than blitz it all in one go. overall a decent watch but it hardly blew me away. think they took too long getting the 4 of them together personally and parts dragged.

    interesting ending I suppose.. I can only assume daredevil season 3 (which supposedly has been greenlit) will continue the story on from here.

    6 eps in. brilliant so far.
    my word was episode 4 good!! 11 minute single-shot, continuous action scene! think it probably topped the stairwell fight scene in season 2. and apparently it was actually a genuine one shot take- no camera trickery.


    other news:
    gutted luke cage has been cancelled :(
    personally not that bothered Iron Fist has been cancelled.
    Jessica Jones season 3 has been greenlit.

    Halfway through it has been great so far bringing Kingpin back was a great idea...also the introduction of another comic book villain has been pretty seamless.

    finished the other day! brilliant just brilliant!
    certainly retains it place at the head of the table for marvel tv shows. fisk is a great villain and bullseye has the makings of one as well.

    the last episode was some seriously great tv. bring on season 4.

    Agent Nadeem was a brilliant character and superbly acted.
