    It was great seeing all of the netflix marvel's heroes fight the villains together.

    It was amazing to see these four characters at once in a teamup. Every Defenders member was amazing and side character too. Incredibly good action and storyline, I want more of that

    This is marvelous, incredible, transcendent. 4 different people come together and create an amazing team. The best squad to my heart 💛❤💙💚 One thing I need is the team up scene should be more brilliant. Hope to see Defenders of New York again soon in the future 🗽

    While Defenders is far from perfect and has its flaws, it has some good stuff in it as well. It nicely balances all the characters who are involved in the show and allows the involvement of those characters to make sense so it doesn't feel like they were all thrown together just for fan service. The story and plot of the show makes sense and remains straightforward enough throughout it so that nothing gets too confusing, which is impressive considering that basically every big character from every one of the solo shows appears in Defenders at some point. The action is pretty good and it's cool to see this group of heroes working together for the greater good. A core theme of this show, as generic and cliche as it may be, is that there are some things you simply can't do alone and teamwork can achieve a lot when it's done right. All that said, there are moments where the direction and dialogue are awkward. The actors do their best to overcome this, but they aren't successful 100% of the time which causes some scenes to be disrupted. Even the action feels iffy at times, which is disappointing since there are a bunch of talented fighters in this show. The worst part about this season is the pacing, which is mostly due to it having 8 episodes and not 13 like the solo shows. This causes the season to feel a bit too fast which leaves certain things underdeveloped and it's clear that parts of this season had to be rushed to fit it into the 8 episodes. Defenders would've benefited immensely from slower pacing to give more time for the plot and characters to develop and give the season depth. Overall, though, Defenders is enjoyable enough and manages to get past its flaws on many occasions.

    8.0/10. I love to see all these Marvel heroes team up and work together. once it gets past the first 2 painfully boring episodes, it gets so much more epic.

    The show wasn't good, but after years with the characters, it gets two points for content and conclusion. I'd have been more interested in a story about the four of them being attacked by ninjas while buying groceries by the end.

    Besides Daredevil this show was pretty slow , cringe and awkward , only watched for daredevils story
