The Truth™:

Daredevil S1 > Jessica Jones > Daredevil S2 > Luke Cage > The Defenders >>>>>>> Iron Fist

Iron Fist was the only one that I would say is not that great, the rest are all a good watch.

Jessica Jones certainly had the most interesting themes, and tackled them surprisingly well, covering things like abuse, manipulation, guilt, revenge, rehabilitation etc. Others may disagree but I'm hoping they keep going down that route and don't try and make it all about explosions and hitting each other with no real depth to the story.

I'd stick an = between Luke Cage and DD2 and take out a few >s before Iron Fist but other than that I agree with that ranking. I think the Netflix shows are at their best when they try to be a bit more varied than just standard superhero fare, DD series 1 had all the legal stuff/investigative journalism to go alongside the actual crimefighting and JJ had the psychological trauma aspect which I reckon it totally nailed. It's after they got the Punisher legal battle out of the way and focused on Elektra/Hand bullshit that I think DD 2 went downhill. Luke Cage was kind of promising with the social commentary at times but never really delivered. Iron Fist was kind of just eh, and Defenders was yet more Hand bullshit. So basically I'm really hoping that JJ sticks to its guns for series 2 and doubles down on the psychological stuff.

I think I enjoyed Iron Fist more than The Defenders, perhaps because I didn't know much about Iron Fist going in and had higher expectations for The Defenders, which ended up disappointing me a lot.

I agree with that rating but Punisher should be slotted in near the top, maybe just below JJ/ DD2 and just above LC

DD1>JJ>P=DD2>LC>Def>IF

Iron Fist is the worst, but I didn’t think it was as awful as some people make out.

I’d go: DD1>P>LC>TD>JJ>DD2>IF
