| The Defenders - Review
It's finally here, the culmination of all the four MARVEL/Netflix shows, this was my most anticipated thing of this year, mostly because I love the comics of every character and I love for the most part their shows, but like I said, regardless of my hype and expectations, I always try to be cautious with that as well, I don't want them to get in the way of my enjoyment of the show. Out of the get go this is a really good show, 8 episodes was definitely the right amount for this season, also the acting for the most part is great, Cox, Ritter and Colter as Daredevil, Jessica Jones and Luke Cage were all great, as usual, Finn Jones also has improved a bit here over his performance in Iron Fist, my guess is because he had better material to work with, the cinematography is great and consistent to the rest of the series, one thing in particular I loved was the way they used colors, whenever a certain character is on-screen, the colors in the background are either red for Daredevil, purple for Jessica Jones, yellow for Luke Cage and green for Iron Fist and when they were together the colors would mix up and I loved it. The score by John Paesano is good (Though not as good as his score for Daredevil), the action scenes were for the most part good, but there were 2 particularly great action scenes, one in episode 3 and one in episode 8. Also, without getting in spoilers, the last 20 minutes of the season finale really excited me and I can't wait to see what they do with the things they set up. I would say that some minor details could have been improved here and there but overall, The Defenders gave me what I wanted and I feel for the most part very satisfied with the result, I can't wait to see the future of the other shows and to see what will happen when The Defenders season 2 arrives.
