 I've started The Defenders, although I only got to the first episode before chores and then my Fire table disappearing. Set up seems good and if this first episode is anything to go by, relationships will be a big part of the story.

 I did read a writer friends mostly spoiler free review and he pointed out that the entire Marvel Netflix would be so much better had they done rewrites to remove the Hand from the plot. Every series was strong or well centered until the Hand we brought in, arguably forced in. Even Danny's story worked much better as just the Meachums as the bad guys and lost its footing pretty quickly when it went mystic Asian; not that it had a strong footing. Maybe if someone who respect Asian cultures, and the fact that Chinese does not equal Japanese, etc, the mystic elements could've worked, but we aren't allowed nice things.
