Set a few months after the events of the second season of Daredevil, and a month after the events of Iron Fist, the vigilantes Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, and Iron Fist team up in New York City to fight a common enemy: The Hand.
Following the tragic end of her brief superhero career, Jessica Jones tries to rebuild her life as a private investigator, dealing with cases involving people with remarkable abilities in New York City.
When a sabotaged experiment gives him super strength and unbreakable skin, Luke Cage becomes a fugitive attempting to rebuild his life in Harlem and must soon confront his past and fight a battle for the heart of his city.
Spoiled billionaire playboy Oliver Queen is missing and presumed dead when his yacht is lost at sea. He returns five years later a changed man, determined to clean up the city as a hooded vigilante armed with a bow.
After exacting revenge on those responsible for the death of his wife and children, Frank Castle uncovers a conspiracy that runs far deeper than New York's criminal underworld. Now known throughout the city as The Punisher, he must discover the truth about injustices that affect more than his family alone.Written by
About halfway through the first season and not sure how much longer I can take it... the fast forward button is getting used more and more often.
I blame the writers - this season could have been told in 8 episodes or less. Every good writer knows that every scene has to accomplish several thing at once - the two most important being character development and advancing the story. This show repeatedly gets bogged down in character development - 5 minutes of two guys talking about guitars and how they met their wives??? - that has nothing to do with the story or plot; so it just sits there, dead in the water.
Don't get me wrong - I loved The Killing, which is also glacially paced, but at least they managed to maintain some tension.
If they're planning a second season, they'd better hire better writers who understand the basics of storytelling.
