Oh that's interesting. I used to love them as characters back in the day. Kinda lost touch with them but it might be interesting to see what they do with the idea. That trailer is all foreshadowing so lets see where it goes ... although whether I will...

Yeah not too bad, that. Looking forward to seeing the series I used to love those characters!

....yeah - during episode 5 we decided to dump Iron Fist. It's not offensive, it's not terrible - but it's simplistic, shallow and extraordinarily bland.

It was Claire that did it - she just... shows up as if she's been written into the scene on the day it was being filmed and was grimly crowbarred in. Rosario is great but ... they couldn't find a better way to fit her in?

A lot of it was just "long-form for the sake of it" I feel - spending hours with scenarios that should have taken minutes. The ethical-guy-takes-on-big-pharma scenario genuinely seems like it was written in minutes by an idiot. It doesn't help anyone to be that crude about it but seriously. At times it made your standard Fox primetime trash show look like The Wire.

Happy to watch Rand as part of the ensemble in Defenders, but the groundwork here doesn't seem like it's worth eight more hours of my time.

The Defenders is on Netflix today, first episode was quiet start. Look forward to next 7 episodes.

And in another news about Jessica Jones Season 2 as it in production;

Mr Killgrave aka David Tennant is there at the production, so he was alive or was he there for flashback scenes?

I've been looking forward to this. I may restart my membership, if only for a short period.

Concerning the spoiler, I'm hoping it's the latter, unless they have a really good story behind it, as it gets a bit silly if death doesn't mean anything. There's been enough villain resurrection with The Hand as it is.

So the Defenders was fun, basically a kung-fu action show. Left things open for the inevitable sequel.

& are we going to see a Misty Knight spin-off? Or a link between Defenders & Avengers. Apparently in the comics she gets a bionic arm from Tony Stark.

Really enjoyed the Defenders- It benefitted from having a tighter plot, though there was still a fair old bit of standing around and talking.

Just finished Defenders. Solid, but Rand is such a massive tool. The series kinda confirms for me that I'll be well up for more JJ, will watch more LC, couldn't give a hoot about DD, and would have to be paid good money to watch another second of IF.

Looks promising. Not sure the changes to the origin were necessary - I always found the 'family killed in a crossfire' story satisfying enough. Still, shouldn't really get in the way of the shooty action!

Doesn't  look like a big change - seems to more closely follow the Garth Ennis Punisher: Max version of the origin story (which I'd heartily recommend, along with Nick Fury: Max) than the original Marvel version - same gang shoot-out at the park, but turns out to be a FBI undercover sting that went wrong and was covered up, rather than just a random accident. The trailer does seem to make it more CIA/spooks than FBI, but we'll see.

Bottom line: naughty people - need punishment!

Looks good, but hope it get lots of backstories of enemies to fill up the episodes like in comics!
