Marvel’s The De­fend­ers

drama / Net­flix

fi­nally, Net­flix’s col­lec­tion of marvel he­roes gets its own su­per­group, as Dare­devil (Char­lie Cox), Jes­sica Jones (Krys­ten Rit­ter), Luke Cage (Mike Colter) and Iron Fist (Finn Jones) team up to take on global su­per vil­lains The Hand. Rather than the usual 13, this has just eight episodes, mak­ing it a much punchier ex­pe­ri­ence – although be warned

that the four he­roes don’t even meet un­til the third episode’s fi­nale. The plot picks up from where the New York he­roes’ sto­ries (es­pe­cially Dare­devil’s) left off, with the four forced to work to­gether to com­bat the ne­far­i­ous Sigour­ney Weaver and her evil out­fit. It’s an ac­tion-packed, tightly writ­ten series that of­fers sat­is­fy­ing clo­sure for these mis­fit su­per­heroes.
