The Defenders (S01E01) "The H Word"


The lives of New Yorkers hang in the balance again in Netflix’s latest entry to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, The Defenders. Other than display the evil machinations of The Hand and its leader Alexandra, plays brilliantly by Sigourney Weaver, the pilot is excellent and comprehensive at showing the in’s and out’s of our four heroes’ lives.

The show runners invent such a rich world for the titular heroes (Krysten Ritter’s Jessica Jones, Mike Colter’s Luke Cage, Finn Jones’ Danny Rand and Charlie Cox’s Matt Murdock) that I would love to see a miniseries based solely around them dealing with the small events in between defending the big apple from whatever threat rears its head.

Netflix won with this.
