Netflix Sunday Time Dumps: Marvel’s The Defenders

Netflix Sunday Time Dumps

Welcome, my fellow dumpers, to yet another Sunday of streaming.

Last week we binged the first season of Van Helsing. This week we’re heading back to the Marvel universe to see what The Defenders are up to.

I’ve been on the fence about The Defenders for a while now. I’d started feeling severe Marvel fatigue right around the time Dr. Strange was coming out. On top of that, Iron Fist didn’t work out so well, so it was starting to seem like Marvel’s Netflix universe might be wearing a little thin.

And considering the much beleaguered Danny Rand (AKA Iron Fist) was the driving force for this series, I was hesitant to sign up.

However, I’m happy to report that although Finn Jones is still a liability to the Screen Actor’s Guild, The Defenders manages to be an entertaining show that, in my opinion, is definitely worth a watch.

And if you haven’t seen the individual shows that make up this Voltron, consider it a Netflix Sunday Time Dump challenge to get caught up. Although it’s probably not necessary to see everything if you want to enjoy this show, fuck it — it’s Sunday and we need a break from the hatred of white supremacists and the epic failure of our complicit American President.
