The coming together of the streaming service's four superhero shows - each with varying styles on how to be a hero - works in part because of how they focus on why such a get-together shouldn't work at all.
If you walk into The Defenders expecting something different from that basic premise, you may be disappointed-showrunners Marco Ramirez and Douglas Petrie aren't reinventing the wheel for these characters just yet.
The final trailer of Netflix's hero team-up show "The Defenders" shows that the war for NY is about to begin. Bickering, hallway fights, and Catholic guilt follow. Jessica Jones, the supercream of the supercrop, is underused over the first four episodes; Iron Fist, the super-runt of the superlitter, is gratefully muted and spared. Getting all the heroes just to meet takes a few episodes.
Of the series studied, "13 Reasons Why" was the only Netflix original that showed any growth in week-over-week viewership in the first month of release, with an 18% increase from week one to week two. They include nurse Claire, who was featured in all four of the series and helped patch up the various heroes when they were seriously hurt. Is there some endgame where Luke and Jessica will end up together? Thankfully The Defenders lives up to those expectations, but so far it hasn't yet exceeded them - yet being the operative word, of course, because odds are that the second half of the series will probably pack some more surprises. There's a short teaser, but you have to be a bit of a detective - or a huge fan of end credits - to stumble upon it. It remains to be seen if "The Defenders" can elevate the character to a better standing. Jessica Jones throws sass at everyone around her, whether she's investigating shell companies or pretending to be a bubbly idiot.
Gao was especially teased as the leader of one faction of the Hand during Iron Fist's first season, which ended with her listening in on Davos (Sacha Dhawan) and Joy Meachum's (Jessica Stroup) plot to take down Danny Rand. Instead, he gets to compete with JJ for that mantle. But at the same time, we get some sort of idea of what Alexandra's plans are.
