Default Ranking the Modern Marvel TV shows

How would you rank the modern Marvel TV shows, best to worst?

At this point I consider the Netflix shows, Legion, Agent Carter and Agents of Shield as modern Marvel TV shows, feel free to add any modern Marvel shows I forgot.

1. Agent Carter
2. Legion
3. The first episode of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.

Not much of a list, I know. The Netflix shows still aren't available to rent on DVD (and might not be), but at this point I'm more interested in Runaways, Inhumans, and the upcoming X-Men show than any of the Netflix stuff. Agent Carter and Legion are both pretty good, but right now I give Agent Carter the edge. AoS's premiere was bad, and that was it for me.

I was referring to the member's interest of watching the show in the future.

I'm not going to rule Cloak & Dagger out without seeing a trailer, but at the moment nothing about it's making it a priority.

1. Legion (9/10)

2. Daredevil 1 (8/10) - Foggy and Karen brought it down a bit.

3. Jessica Jones s1 (5/10) - All the annoying characters (everyone except the villain) brought it way way down, so much that it turned me off the Netflix shows completely.

I watched the first couple episodes of Agents of Shield as well, which I remember being pretty unbearable. I'm expecting Inhumans to be great though.

I forgot to mention Legion. That's #1 for me though I still find it off putting that 90% of the characters are all made for TV. Agent Carter would be higher if only season two wasn't so redundant.

1. Daredevil (spectacular in all respects...would have been even better with a few less episodes)
2. Agents of SHIELD (a lot of bad...but its been going long enough to have a lot of good)
3. Luke Cage (great first half...terrible second half)
4. Jessica Jones (Good villain. Fairly weak first half that went completely off the rails in the second half)
5. Agent Carter (um...I liked the oldschool Black Widow...not much else)
6. Iron Fist (Garbage. Even the few good things, like Colleen Wing, were drowned in bad story points connected to them)

I haven't seen Legion.

Honestly, the Netflix stuff should be its own list, as the properties of a streaming show are about as different from broadcast TV, as broadcast TV is from movies.

So. . .

Netflix:
DD s1
DD s2
JJ
LC
IF

ABC:
Agent Carter
Agents of SHIELD

I'm not really interesting in distinguishing seasons for them.

6. SHIELD (If there was a way to make this one even lower on the list, I would)

I haven't seen enough of Legion yet to properly rank it.

I suppose if I *had* to rank the Agents of SHIELD seasons, I'd put them something like. . .

Season 2 > Season 3 > Season 1. I haven't watched season 4, and it might well be the best season yet, but I can't bring myself to care enough to watch it.

I'm not going to cherry pick certain episodes of certain seasons but, IMO, in their totality, I'd rank it something like this:

Jessica Jones
Luke Cage
Daredevil
Iron Fist
Whatever that steaming pile of procedural garbage on ABC is

I haven't watched Legion yet.

Rankings:
1) Legion (original enough for me rank it here despite not seeing episode 8 yet)
2) Daredevil (really up/down but delivers on action)
3) Agent Carter (S1 took while get into but a fun show after bit; S2 really bad)
4) AoS (tight writing and action scenes despite poor overall concept/concept of team that drives the show, not feeling like a SHIELD show, and rushed predictable endings all the time)
5) JJ (really good at first but just became kind of frustrating by the end and could tell held back on budget)
6) LC (some good/unique parts but just kind of felt tired and worn out with writing and dialogue with exception of episodes dealing with origin for me); guessing Iron Fist will sort of fall into this same ranking for me as well based on reviews





*What haven't seen:
-Pretty much all of S1 AoS (beginning and last 2 episodes saw) and s4 AoS
-Iron Fist

Default Re: Ranking the Modern Marvel TV shows

Finally got around to watching Jessica Jones this past week and wow was that series over-hyped!

For me, the best so far has been the first half of season 2 of Daredevil, then Season 1 of Daredevil, then Luke Cage. Everything else I have seen has basically had too much filler for me to tolerate. I'm glad it's all there for people who really, really, really can't get enough of Marvel, but for me, watching the supporting characters of a B-tier hero like Jessica Jones or a show dealing only with supporting characters (like Agent Carter or Agents of Shield) is just dull.

With Iron Fist, it finally seems Marvel is overplaying their hand. I haven't seen it yet, and it may be that the critics were just as wrong about it as they were about Jessica Jones, but if it really is as boring as they claim...I can see why. Iron Fist is B-tier, just like Jessica Jones. B-tier characters work best as support, maybe having their own little stories occasionally, but certainly not their own shows! And when you devote half their screentime to their own supporting characters...it's like, who cares?

Jessica Jone's battle with Kilgrave would have been a fantastic six-episode miniseries, and maybe the best of the lot. Luke Cage and the second season of Daredevil should have been eight or nine. I'd probably watch them again and again if that were the case (like I do with the movies.)

I want The Defenders and The Inhumans to be awesome, and the fact that they are going to be eight episodes each instead of 12 or 13 gives me hope. It also helps that the tier of the characters will average much higher. With less time and more B-tier characters to work with, it should be good.
