Oooooh, Typhoid Mary! I... hope this season is good. I mean, it has to be better than 1, right? Luke Cage 2 was certainly an improvement over 1.

I mean at the very least we're getting Colleen and Misty together more. THat alone makes it ten times better than season 1.

I've watched IF s.1 twice now, and I think it's got a bad rap. It has some bad moments early on, and drags a bit in the later episodes, but overall I think it's pretty good.

Luke Cage and Iron Fist were major low points for me with the Netflix series. I struggled to get through both. Whilst including Typhoid is a good start for IF I think that many of the issues the series' have are with pacing. I'll have to wait and see what everyone says before I waste another 13 hours.

I thought the storyline was fine. I just couldn't get past the bad acting, most notably by Jones and Henwick. At first I thought their casting was great, but the acting just didn't work for me and seemed to just get worse and worse. I didn't buy their chemistry either. I haven't seen either of those actors in other things so I suppose it's possible to attribute it to the writing or directing (which seems more likely as I think about it because I liked them much better in Defenders), but either way it just didn't work. When your two primary characters come across with acting comparable to high school drama students it really detracts from everything else. Hopefully they grow into their roles in Season 2 and this improves but based on Danny's guest appearance in Luke Cage I'm not encouraged. *sigh* I really wanted to like this. I'm baffled why they didn't just integrate Luke and Danny into a Heroes for Hire series since they were heading in that direction with Luke anyway this season.

My rankings from best to worst:
Daredevil
Jessica Jones
Cloak & Dagger
Luke Cage
Punisher
Runaways
Iron Fist

Someone in this has been cast as a character named Sam Chung--the name of the Daredevil comic book character Blindspot. Could be a coincidence or maybe not..

Oh, that's cool. There's no way he's named that without there being some kind of payoff.

The fact that I'm even considering watching Iron Fist is a desperate cry for help.

I’ve read a couple of reviews which have been lukewarm.

I've seen it's an improvement on the first season.

Honestly, as unpopular as the first season was I don't expect many reviews to be hugely positive because it would take a massive improvement to get that reaction. You'd need a new cast for that to me, minus Colleen and Danny.

Review in Vox indicated the relationship between Misty and Colleen was a really strong element of the first six episodes, and suggested a spin off would be warranted for those two characters. I’d be down with that, for sure.

I'm though 8 episodes and this has been really, really good guys. So much stronger than Season 1.

I actually really enjoyed this season. I flew through it, and was kind of disappointed when I realized I was done.

Loved this season. The Iron Fist mythos is being explored, and really, it's the most interesting mythos of all of the Defenders shows. I finally finished it last night, and I enjoyed the hell out of the whole thing. 10 episodes was a great number because, for once, I felt like I needed more. There wasn't that dragging middle arc that nobody cares about this time.

I'm still hoping Mary Walker ends up having powers. She was in Sokovia, after all. It's possible she was experimented on alongside Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch (and that maybe her powers are an unstable precursor to Wanda's). Bloody Mary may end up being the powered one.

Also, when Colleen's fist went white, I legit whooped. And then she channeled it through her sword! And then Danny got the Orson Randall pistols! And the seven mystical cities thing is being explored! I had such a good time!

Re: Mary. When she was telling Joy what happened to her there, didn't she specifically mention that they experimented on her? I need to re-watch. Which is something I didn't think I'd ever say about IF after season 1.

It did. It happened during the epilogue. Colleen stops a bank robbery and can channel her chi through her sword. Then it jumps to Japan where Ward and Danny are trying to hunt down Orson Randall and came across his pistols. He then uses them to fire chi-bullets to vaporize an oncoming bullet.
