Defending shit does sound a whole lot more positive and productive than avenging shit.

Also, isn't the classic Defenders line-up composed of Doctor Strange, The Hulk, Namor, and the Silver Surfer?

I guess Fox has the rights to the Surfer (and I think also Namor...?), and the other two are already in stuff, so they probably just had to fill up the show with a few characters they've got the IP for who wouldn't really fit in other stuff.

Daredevil is the only character here whose comic I've read and I like him a lot, but I haven't really felt much urge to watch his TV show.

That was the classic Defenders. But these four were as well later on.

Both are Marvel Comics teams. And as Marvel Studios owns the film/TV rights to the characters featured in both properties, these Netflix miniseries take place in the same universe as the Marvel Studios films.

However, I've heard there's some sort of conflict between the movie and television divisions that may prevent the television characters from showing up in the movies.

I thought this was an OK series. But the 8 episodes actually felt too long. the story seems like something that could have been accomplished in 3 hrs as a long movie or a "mini series"

Sigorney Weaver is a boss

Krysten Ritter is simply amazing

Danny Rand is far less annoying than in the Iron Fist series

I want an Elektra series!

I did like the final scene, which sets up a classic comic story for a future season

Punisher teaser at the end was kind of lame. Should have given us something more
