    Just finished.

    Loved it overall, but still think the casting of Bernthal misses the mark.

    it's hard to even imagine better casting than Bernthal. He basically makes the show.

    Gotta love opinions about media. I loved Jessica Jones, but hated every minute I watched Dare Devil (and quit, which means I was never introduced to Punisher, I'll watch it at some point). I thought Luke Cage was ok, and while I won't pretend Iron Fist was some kind of masterpiece (or even a 'good' show), I don't understand the vitriol it receives. I found it entertaining enough.

    Defenders was not a good season. It was seemed rushed and was not very interesting. Several story development decisions seemed really strangely timed (prob b/c it was rushed).

    I'm not a Bernthal fan so it's possible I have an inherent bias.

    The final fight/torture scenes were bloody awesome.

    I thought Luke Cage was C+, the characters were pretty good. I thoroughly enjoyed the actor who portrayed Cottonmouth (Mahershela Ali or something?). Agree with the rest, haven't watched Defenders or the Punisher myself. Iron Fist was really bad.

    Yeah Luke Cage was watchable up until they switched villains. Mahershala Ali was amazing. The Diamondback character was horrendous and the writing went off the cliff.

    Fun Fact about those Netflix Marvel shows: Melissa Rosenberg the head writer for the well received first four seasons of Dexter was the showrunner for Jessica Jones. Scott Buck who was the Dexter showrunner for the poorly received last three seasons was the showrunner for Iron Fist.

    Jessica Jones - A-
    Daredevil - D
    Punisher - ?
    Luke Cage - C+
    Iron Fist - ?
    Defenders - ?

    Daredevil was painful to watch. Way too many 10 minute scenes of two people arguing in a room.
    And they skipped over all the action parts. They'd set the stage for a big fight, and then just skip ahead to a bunch of bodies on the ground, and Daredevil limping away.

    Almost stopped watching all the NetFlix superhero shows but Jessica Jones was really good.

    Haven't got around to Iron Fist or Defenders yet.

    David Tennant as Kilgrave is beyond phenomenal in Jessica Jones. I'm not sure why he doesn't get more hype for one of the all time great villain performances.

    Or maybe he gets enough and I just don't pay attention!

    Anyway, gave me shivers.

    Does Punisher get better? Episode 1 was good but 2 and 3 were awful. 4 only slightly better.

    My grades are close to yours. I liked Luke Cage a lot more than you did. Gets an A until Cottonmouth dies and a C when Diamondback shows up.

    Jessica Jones - A+ (David Tenant and Krysten Ritter, who is a dime, were both excellent)
    Daredevil - A
    Punisher - ? (Not done yet)
    Luke Cage - B
    Iron Fist - F
    Defenders - B-

    They're sure not afraid of changing things up with Agents of SHIELD.
