Iron Fist season 2 comes out the week of my birthday, so I’m assuming it’s Netflix’s gift to me. I was fine with season 1 and didn’t dislike it to the extent most people did, so I remain somewhat hopeful about season 2. I have also been largely disappointed in most of the Netflix Defenders shows at this point, but i remain somewhat hopeful about season 2.
All of this looks fine. Davos should make for a good villain, especially if they go full Steel Serpent with the guy. And the fight scenes are supposed to be improved.
Why they haven’t gone full Tournament of Heaven with this Iron Fist series is beyond me. Brubaker and Faction gave you a perfect Iron Fist story! Make it!
San Diego Comic-Con keeps rolling along, and it keeps producing quick and easy trailers on YouTube that I can share! I love trailers, and I hope you do too, because here’s a bunch of them for upcoming TV shows!
First up, a full trailer for Disenchanted, the new cartoon from Matt Groening. It looks…OK. A lot of simple jokes. But I have faith. The show goes up on Netflix on Aug. 17.
Then there’s a trailer for the next season of Voltron, which looks awesome. I love this series and can’t wait to buy the Voltron LEGO set in a week! Hopefully I’ll have it in time to watch this new season on Aug. 10!
Then how about the new season of Young Justice. Looks pretty neat. I enjoyed the show the first time it was around, but wasn’t such a super fan that I’m foaming at the mouth over Outsiders. But hey, I’ll always take some nice DC animated superhero stuff.
Then we’ve got a new season of The Venture Bros. coming up. I love the show, but I continue to be annoyed at the release schedule. Every other animated show produces new episodes every year. What is it about The Venture Bros. that requires several years between seasons?
The new season starts Aug. 5.
Finally, here’s a glimpse at upcoming DuckTales episodes. Further fuel for my Disney Expanded Cartoon Universe hopes and dreams!
Oy vey, that was a lot of trailers. And I’m sure there will be more today! So keep tuning in to the madness as I try to keep up!
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.
