And, to very little surprise, "Defenders" also kinda' stunk.

Too much cheesy dialogue ("don't give in to fear") and way too much talking. The final two episodes heavily featured the cast waiting around in the police precinct, talking about how urgent it was that they face the bad guys. We've been ramping up to this big conflict and we want to see the final fight! Instead, it's lots of waiting. I almost feel like that was the intent of the writers/directors/etc to convey frustration to the audience.

I got into it around episodes 4-6, though. Stick (Scott Glenn) continued to steal the scene from others. Had a Comic Nerd Mark-Moment, too: Iron Fist enters the executive board room of the Hand, then the Luke Cage cavalry arrives! Great teamwork, as Iron Fist hid behind Cage's bulletproof body. I said: "Power Man and Iron Fist! Ho, I love it!"

Aside from that, it was 8 hours of the usual shlop. Really a shame that these things have tanked. We've now had SIX different serials and I can't say that I recommend any of them. "Punisher" is up next and I wouldn't be a Comic Book Nerd if I didn't think: "hey, that looks neat. Might give it a shot". That's the curse of the Comic Book Nerd-- you can't give it up and keep getting strung along in hopes of something nifty eventually happening.
