Netflix Marvel’s the Defenders

I took advantage of the Netflix free trial so that I can finally watch Marvel’s The Defenders. I watched it the other day and I had fun watching it. Honestly, I didn’t finish watching Marvel’s Luke Cage and the Iron Fist. It did not interest me unlike the Daredevil and Jessica Jones’ Netflix series. Anyway, The Defenders delivered more than I expected. The series only have 8 episodes which is unusual for a Marvel/Netflix series. We always get a 13-episode series from them, but for this series, I think its just enough.

The story line was well written. It was pretty clear why these heroes came together. They were all trying to fight the Hand and its more logical for them to work together than individually. They were reluctant to work as a team, with the exception of Danny Rand, but it worked out in the end. I still think that Danny Rand is that kid who is unsure of his purpose. He comes off as an immature and impulsive character in this show. My favorite in this series is Jessica Jones, she always have a way to make fun of the other heroes especially Matt/Daredevil.

Matt’s story line is definitely the most intriguing one. Its no secret that Elektra came back to life and became the Hand’s ultimate weapon. In most episodes, I always look forward the Elektra-Daredevil face-off. It’s both fun and quite painful to watch. It’s apparent that both of them are confused about the situation they were in.

I don’t want to spoil it for others who haven’t seen the show yet, but, the ending of The Defenders gives us a quick peek of Daredevil’s season three. I am so looking forward to watch the DD3 because I am curious how Matt survived and got out from the rubble. Marvel’s Daredevil season three and Jessica Jones are expected to be released next year. For Marvel’s Luke Cage fans, I think they are currently filming for the second season too, and the Iron Fist got the “go ahead” for season two. For all Marvel fans, you probably already know that The Punisher will be aired this year, so, that’s something we can all look forward to.

Overall, I will give this show a 4/5 star rating.
