Iron Fist - The Fury of Iron Fist television review

Iron Fist returns for a Second Season with Danny Rand (Finn Jones) ignoring the concerns of his company (yeah, that’s not going bite him in the ass) while being consumed by stepping into Matt Murdock’s role as the city’s protector. Tensions are running high as someone appears to be orchestrating a gang war between the local gangs. And lurking in the shadows is the alliance of Davos (Sacha Dhawan) and Joy (Jessica Stroup) who plan to take out their own aggressions and inadequacies out on the man they blame for their misfortune. Meanwhile there appears to be trouble brewing at home between Danny and Colleen (Jessica Henwick) who gets her own mystery to look into involving a family crest and unanswered questions.

Marvel's Defenders - Mean Right Hook television review

The slow inter-connection between Netflix’s four Marvel super-hero shows begins here as Misty Knight‘s (Simone Missick) multiple run-ins with Jessica Jones (Krysten Ritter) and the bitchy private eye’s proximity to dead bodies, which also allows her to meet a certain Hell’s Kitchen lawyer, and the more violent meeting between Danny Rand (Finn Jones) and Luke Cage (Mike Colter) whose separate investigations lead them to the same warehouse where the Chaste have been slaughtered. The Cage/Iron Fist battle is pretty much run-of-the-mill comic story with two heroes mistaking each other for adversaries and duking it out before discovering they are on the same side. While the Knight/Jones interaction is less explosive, it does help set the stage for the police getting involved in the heroes’ battle with the Hand.

Marvel's Defenders - The H Word 1 television review

For a show that had 65 previous episodes to set-up all the characters necessary to tell a combined storyline, the first episode of The Defenders spends an awful long time reintroducing us to the characters from each show. Luke Cage (Mike Colter) is released from prison, thanks in part to the help of Foggy Nelson (Elden Henson), and returns to Harlem and Claire (Rosario Dawson). Danny Rand (Finn Jones) and Colleen (Jessica Henwick) stop their worldwide travels searching for the Hand and return to New York after an encounter with a familiar deadly warrior. Jessica Jones (Krysten Ritter) is slowly drinking herself to death and refusing to take any case until threatened to stay away from the search for a missing architect piques her interest. And Matt Murdock (Charlie Cox), long since putting his horned-mask and billy-club aside, continues to struggle against leaving that part of his life behind.
