This show is pretty good. I've got through the first 9 episodes in 3 days and it's gotten better as it goes. Really elevates the back half of Daredevil season 2 as well since I now see they were starting to lay the groundwork for Iron Fist and what is yet to come. The Defenders series has a real shot of being something great. The casting on the titular Netflix heroes has been perfect, all strong performances that bring the characters to life. I look forward to seeing them interact in the team-up.
I find the manufactured outrage by racist critics cringe worthy. If all you care about is the color of the person playing a character, that says more about you than the people who made the show.
