    Overall, fun series.


Yep, it was a lot of fun! My only real complaints about the series is that it wasn't long enough(needed more episodes) and that the different characters didn't get to interact enough(which ties back in the not long enough complaint). I mean not a single interaction between Matt and Clair, or Matt and Weaver's Alexandra? In fact, Clair got short-changed all around in this series I thought.

    Weaver as the main villain was excellent.


Yeah, I enjoyed her a lot. And I was actually surprised by her death which came out of nowhere!

    Luke Cage: Nice to see that despite him being so invulnerable that some well placed martial arts hits can cause him some trouble.


I actually didn't understand that part of the show. It didn't bother me a whole lot, but I didn't understand how so many of the characters were able to knock him around. Iron Fist was getting nowhere until he used his fist, but these other characters can affect him? If Elektra could hurt him and kick him around then she should have had an absolutely devastating effect on the others. I wish they had just come up with a opponent physically powerful enough to give Luke, and to a lesser extent Jessica, a run for their money.

    Iron Fist: Danny evolves a bit as a character but is still naive and thick as a brick at times.


I enjoyed him in his own series and enjoyed him even more here. Him fighting Luke that first time and him confronting the Hand in his suit at Midland Circle were some of my favorite moments in the show.


    Quote:
    Jessica Jones: still cynical and a bit trashy in terms of personality but at least she seems to be getting over that.


I enjoyed her in this more than in her own series too. Her and Matt's interactions were some of the best in the series. In fact, they probably had my favorite dynamic in this show.

    Daredevil: tried to quit being a super hero but as they say in Godfather 3 "just when I thought I was out, they pulled me back!" He's forced to suit up again, and gets all weepy when he finds out that SHE is back.


Daredevil was awesome as usual. My favorite scene from the show was when he first appeared in costume again to help Jessica.

    Also nice Punisher trailer after the last episode.


I truly had no interest in this show until I heard Karen is going to be in it. I'm probably going to give it a shot solely for her, but I'm not excited about it at all. I'm not a big Punisher fan and I'm not looking forward to watching a whole show of him brutally murdering people.
