Since it was only 8 episodes and I worked from home today I was able to finish it. I was kinda worried after seeing the sub-par reviews, but I liked it a lot. It's not better than Daredevil or probably Jessica Jones, but it's better than Luke Cage and Iron Fist's solo shows. I did think the first 2 or 3 episodes before they all meet was a little slow, but maybe that's because we've been waiting for this for years. After they meet and talk they did have chemistry and I liked the team dynamics. Matt being such a reluctant hero was a bit strange to see, but I expected Jessica to skeptical, Luke to be the conscious, and Iron Fist to want to lead the charge against the hand. Full spoilers ahead. Hardly any reaction to Stick's death was disappointing to me, since he is my favorite secondary character in all of these shows. Matt mentioned him for like 4 seconds and that was it.
The season finale was a letdown. Blowing up the building was such a random plan - they would've been fine if they just killed the 3 main members of the Hand and Electra since blowing up the building means they're okay killing, which is something they're all against and have never done besides Jessica. Mining for dragon bones being the reason why NYC is going to collapse and be destroyed sounds like a bad Saturday morning cartoon. Electra's motivation was messy too. I enjoyed watching it and I'd like for them to come together again, but they have somethings to work on.
- I didn't know how much I missed Jessica Jones, would like to see her series next.
- I half expected Punisher to show up when I was watching trailers for this.
- Colleen was a little annoying.
- Treating Matt being a superhero almost like a recovering alcohol or drug addiction was weird, especially since Karen was always a Daredevil fan and supporter when she didn't know it was Matt.
