Wrapped up this show today. Marvel finally got its head out of their ass and delivered a great show after the fiascos of the Iron Fist Season 1 and 2, 2nd half of Luke Cage Season 1 and the defenders.

my only gripe is

Watched a few episodes. Outside Jessica Jones, which I liked for its themes and break from the traditional narrative structure, I think I just find Marvel Netflix boring slogs. Daredevil is clearly the quality superhero show for them, but I still just find it a little too heavy handed and long-winded. Really wish they weren’t always thirteen episodes.

I had the day off when this season dropped, so I plowed through it pretty quickly. Agreed that this is the best one in a while, the first great Netflix season since The Punisher. Doesn't hurt that it had maybe the best action sequence of all the Netflix shows (relatively early on, too).

There were other gripes I had with the season, of course, because I always have gripes. None of these Netflix shows have been perfect--even JJ's first season had Robyn, and DD's first season dragged at times. I definitely agree with Jet that pretty much all of these seasons probably could have been satisfying and more tightly-plotted at 10 episodes rather than 13. My biggest complaints:

Side-note, I actually thought Iron Fist's second season was a massive improvement on the first. More focus on Colleen at the expense of Danny definitely helped. Misty's appearances and chemistry with Colleen really made me hope for Daughters of the Dragon at some point (I'd be way more interested in it than Heroes for Hire, that's for sure). And man, Mary stole the show for me--such a fascinating and well-acted character. Danny himself is still kinda lame, but at least the showrunners seem to have realized that. I'm hoping that Colleen, Misty, and Mary at least manage to find their way into other Netflix shows at some point, because I would hate to be done with those characters.

I will check out iron fist season 2. I tried luke cage season 2 and it was bad. No chemistry between shades and the black woman (no idea about her name) I droppes it after episode 1 just didn't click with me.

I mean, I'm not going to say that IF's second season was amazing by any stretch, but I thought it was worth watching while I really didn't think the first season was. The action was also improved, which was a major problem for the first season of a show about a supposed master of martial arts, and I believe that show actually did drop the episode count to 10. I also actually did like Luke Cage's second season, so take that for what it's worth. My season ranking would be something like this now:

1. Daredevil Season 1
2. Jessica Jones Season 1
3. The Punisher Season 1
4. Daredevil Season 3
5. Jessica Jones Season 2
6. Iron Fist Season 2
7. Luke Cage Season 2
8. Luke Cage Season 1
9. Daredevil Season 2
10. Defenders
(large gap)
11. Iron Fist Season 1

The top tier and the bottom two are set in stone for me, but I could rearrange the middle five in pretty much any order and not find it too far off. Luke Cage's first season would be top tier if the second half hadn't careened out of control, maybe would be above Daredevil's third season.

Season 3 made me fall in love with this universe again, to the point where I even went back and watched the Defenders and enjoyed it a fair bit (but man, I still can't believe how that show was 8 episodes and it was still slow and full of filler). It's a shame that it feels like all of this is wrapping up, because when these shows are on point, they're really on point, and I'd like to see them continue. DD season 1 and 3 and JJ season 1 were all incredible, and I don't think we'll get anything close to them from Disney's streaming service.
