Badly written (every episode till here)
21 August 2017 | by See all my reviews

Every episode is badly written. The first episode goes very slow and is understandable but every episode is written with one goal in mind - the climax of the episode should be so & so. Same goes with this episode. Instead of using the already strongly built characters who have/ had their own TV shows and were really well-written (except for the Iron Fist), it's a shame that they are not bringing out the characters in a fine way and they are not even working on the story. The entire Defenders team can defeat The Hand in around 2 episodes but the writers wanted to make it thrilling and use really cheap writing. It's such a shame. Every episode the defenders either win by the end depending on that very episode and not the entire story of the series. This episode had something very silly. I just couldn't digest that the climax could have happened the way they have written. Yet people have been blinder than the Daredevil to rate this series on a high note.
