It's Alexandra who's key to everything. Just powerful, dangerous and mysterious enough, she's the reason the Defenders can find common cause... a much-anticipated series and beloved franchise has already found an indispensable newcomer.

It's a bridge more than an artistic accomplishment in its own right. If that's enough for you, that's fine, but with all the build-up and all the hype for this superhero supergroup, no one would blame you for expecting a little more.

Given that we've waited so long for The Defenders, first impressions are that while it's solid, it takes too long to get to the good stuff.

August 15, 2017 | Rating: 3.8/5 | Full Review…

Dark and gripping, this superhero series will appeal to fans who love big bad villains with big bad plans, and the complex heroes who oppose them despite their many limitations.

Again, just as when the Avengers first assembled, much of the joy here is seeing disparate personalities get to know each other and reluctantly embrace the T-word - team.

Anyone who has enjoyed the other Marvel Netflix shows most certainly won't want to skip The Defenders. That big screen/prestige TV feel is back in full force here, and there's no shortage of fun when the team finally gets to kick some ass together.
