Despite a big dip in quality, and despite Disney planning its own streaming service before too long, the Netflix Defenders shows are still going and we got the second season of Luke Cage this past weekend! Seeing as how I’m never going to quit these shows, I binged the whole season over the past few days and want to share my thoughts. Largely, I liked it!
TV Rating: 7/10 – Good.
The second season of Luke Cage was a definite upswing from the past few disappointing seasons of the Netflix Defenders shows. It was a solid, enjoyable season with some standout moments and episodes — though not nearly as many as I would have liked. I definitely echo what pretty much every other critic says about these shows: 13 episodes is way too many. Not a single one of these shows has produced a season-long storyline that requires all 13 episodes. It’s weird why they keep trying. Do they really not have any other tricks up their sleeves? Like some entertaining one-off episodes or something?
Regardless, I liked the second season of Luke Cage. Join me after the jump for my full review! Expect FULL SPOILERS for the entire season.
Despite the pretty crummy last bunch of seasons of the Netflix Defenders show, I will never not be excited that a new season is coming. I’m that much of a Marvel fan. So yeah, I’m excited for Luke Cage season 2.
The trailer looks neat. I’m not super excited and I don’t anticipate much of anything, but you best believe I’m gonna watch the heck out of this season!
The show comes out on June 22.
Today, seemingly at random, we got a new trailer for the second season of Luke Cage! We get a full look at the new villain and the possible story, with plenty of style. Can the second season make up for the horrible second half of the first season?
We’ll find out on June 22!
Honestly, I’m a little worried. I haven’t loved a Netflix Defenders show since the first half of Luke Cage‘s first season. Everything else has been…bad to lackluster to merely OK. But I will probably never lose hope that they’ll turn things around.
I did not like the second season of Jessica Jones. I kind of hated almost everything about it. I am honestly going to sit here and tell you that I found it less entertaining than Iron Fist. You are more than welcome to disagree with me. I hope you enjoyed this season of television. But I did not. Oh man, I did not.
TV Rating: 3/10 – Bad.
I loved the first season of Jessica Jones. It was gripping, exciting, had a very important message and starred some really awesome characters, Jessica Jones especially. So the fact that most, if not all, of the same people could return and make this horrible season is mind-boggling! How did it go so wrong? Why did anybody think this was a good TV show? How can they mess it up this much after such a stellar first season?
Join me after the jump for my thoughts and review on the second season of Jessica Jones! Warning, there will be FULL SPOILERS from the show. And please share your own thoughts on the show in the comments!
The next season of Luke Cage comes out on June 22! That’s not too far into the future! And we’ve got Jessica Jones at the end of the week! So things are pretty good, I’d say, for Netflix Marvel shows.
Here’s hoping Jessica and Luke can make up for Danny and the Defenders…
I wonder who the villain is going to be…
