I'm really enjoying this, up to the 7th episode. So far there hasn't been a stand out moment like Daredevil or Jessica Jones, but generally scene to scene it is more enjoyable.

Halfway through. The music has absolutely been my favorite so far.

Anyone else think Cottonmouth's laugh is awesome?

I'm a little mixed on it. I think it's a little pedantic at times, predictable, and a little ham-fisted-- but the cast is so great it makes it okay. Only 4 in and having fun.

Does this take place after the CW movie? If so, it seems weird that a bulletproof guy is out there walking around and there hasn't been any mention from anyone about the Sokovia Accords.

I know the two divisions are a little contentious, and that because of time tables they are reticent to lay in too many references-- but I wish they'd try harder to make it work to unify the universe a bit more.

I think it's set the same time as Daredevil season 2, so no Sokovia yet. But yeah I agree with why you were bummed out

Yeah, I get this too. I'm watching because it's fun but the hoody - trayvon martin thing is very ham fisted. The best character they've drawn is basketball star cop. Her partner was telegraphing a future plot point to me. Won't say much because of spoilers but the best parts are still keeping me interested like the music and set dressing as I love NYC.

The other reason I'm bummed about that is not only because

Finally finished today. After Cottonmouth's arc ended, my interest level went waaaaay down, especially the part where episode 11 ran on about six hours too long, or maybe just felt that way. 

 

Diamondback would've been right at home fighting Lou Ferrigno's Hulk.  That's not a compliment.  The rest of the surviving cast I'd happily watch again, even the ones who weren't in The Wire, on the condition that they hire some editors willing to make tough calls, trim the padding that they're mistaking for texture, and stop making Harlem feel as lethargic as Herschel's farm.

 

On the upside, Jidenna's "Long Live the Chief" is now my favorite tune of 2016.

Can someone explain why Luke and Diamondback aren't THAT old, and why Cottonmouth and Moriah's flashbacks were basically 80's accurate, but when they flash back to Luke's dad's church it's straight-up 60's?

 

I think this is my favorite Defenders series so far. Yeah, there were some parts that dragged a bit, but both Daredevils and Jessica Jones had way more parts that dragged a bit.

 

Why haven't they come out with an album of the Harlem Paradise musical acts yet?

I have one episode to go, but the clear top songs are Jidenna's and Method Man's.

I love Raphael Saadiq anyway, so I'd add him to the list.
