With all of the interest into how New York’s “street level’ heroes would work together, the stakes were undoubtedly high. Unfortunately, while there are some undeniable highlights in the long awaited team-up, “The Defenders” is the weakest show on Marvel’s Netflix roster since “Iron Fist.” (more…)

After a well received first season adaptation of the young adult novel 13 Reasons Why, Netflix announced that the story will continue with a season 2.
