5 thoughts after binge-watching Netflix’s The Defenders

1. That was one wild ride.

2. Eight episodes is better than 13. Everyone got significant time and good moments even with five fewer hours to cover the ground.

3. Stay through the closing credits for a trailer. Hey, it’s Marvel, even on the small screen.

4. Yeah, after six series of Marvel TV universe, I still like Jessica Jones best. Her show, the character, I’m eager for more.

5. One thing: Comic book villains always, always talk too much so the good guys can come to the rescue just in time. But if we were in it for realism, we wouldn’t be watching stories about bulletproof, impossibly strong people, would we?
