I really don't understand the hate this series gets. Just finished season 2, I think it was more entertaining than the first season.

I really liked that Godfather moment in Episode 13.

Maybe she is working on DD season 3? I heard she is having some issues because of her politics, but I don't see it effecting her work.

Honestly, there were many other female leads to follow, and I dig how ladies are always asking Luke "Coffee?"

Rosario Dawson said she doesn’t know whether she will be back because she wants to be with her daughter in the West coast (i.e. she doesn’t just generically “not know whether she will be back”, but she probably has discussed with Loeb about how she doesn’t want to be in NYC year round). That’s probably why they tried to close Claire’s storylines, starting with that in Luke Cage.

Showrunner is a man what do you expect (though at least that’s Mike Colter and not, say, Finn Jones),

I'm on episode 8 and I'm enjoying the season. It's slow, slower than season one but the thing Luke Cage has going for it is its style and vibe. I love the vibe of the show: the characters, the music, the cinematography, the show just has an overall pleasant atmosphere to it that makes it fun to watch, you know what I mean? With Punisher and JJ season 2, they felt laborious, i didn't even get past the first episode of JJ season 2. Even though this show is slowly paced, its still enjoyable to watch.

I really wish they'd give Luke some kind of...uniform that he wears. I know Luke doesn't wear a costume in the comics, but seeing Mike Colter walk around in hoodies and raggedy clothes is so visually unappealing. Get creative, give him a cool look, whether its a yellow under armour shirt or...something. Like, come on.

3 episodes in. While it's good, it's really, REALLY slow so far. And it is missing that hook that Neflix usually gives you at the end of their episodes where you instantly need to put on the next one.

Hope it gets more fast-paced and cliffhanger-y as it goes on.

Bushmaster, though... That dude is everything.

It does get more cliffanger-y after episode 3. And yes, Bushmaster is BOSS. The actor who plays him is incredibly charismatic.

Half way through episode 3 and I'm enjoying the ride so far. Alfre Woodard seriously deserves her Emmy for this.

Loved Misty's scene with her shutting the cops up about her arm.

This is far and away better than season 1. Loved it

And I honestly thought the Marvel Netflix shows were losing its steam after the last several outings. I don't think I have enjoyed these series this much since all the Punisher episodes from DD season 2. Bravo

Mariah has got to be considered one of the best Marvel villains thus far.

they really stretched this season. It's better than season 2 of Jessica Jones. The season is better than the 2nd half of season 1, but pales compared to first half of season 1.

I really enjoyed Misty this season. She was MVP. Mariah was more intriguing though she seemed to be chewing scenery. Alfre Woodard is truly talented. I liked Commanche. Shades, I enjoyed that he had more to do this season.

Luke was Luke.

they didn't have anything worthy to give to her. She should have never been a regular in this or Iron Fist. The more we see her, sadly the less vital she seems.

For season 3, can we get better writers or simply condense this to 8 episodes?

No more than 10 episodes is necessary for these shows. I'm curious at how IF will look with 10 episodes.

I don't think there really is a place for Claire in Daredevil anymore, now that Karen and Foggy know Matt's secret; and I think Karen's more likely to be the one who will be stitching Matt's wounds up in the future. As for Iron Fist, we're getting Daughters of the Dragon stuff with Colleen and Misty, so no place for Claire there.

Claire was never really used properly. I still don't know why they got an actress like Rosario Dawson and gave her scraps

Claire in the early days was more of an audience surrogate, and by the early days, I'm talking about when she was a part of Matt's story in the first season of Daredevil. Thing is, in the time since then, she's lost a number of the traits that made her interesting to start. Look at The Defenders, where Claire was actually one of the most informed, well-connected, characters in the show, but she came off more as just another person in a large crowd of side characters. That season treated her as Luke's girlfriend and not much else, and she only served to get Luke and Danny together. There was no acknowledgment of her time with Matt, or her encounter with Jessica.


Her early role was as a link between the Marvel Netflix shows. And that role is no longer needed as other characters like Karen, Foggy, Turk, Misty, Colleen, Danny, Brett, etc. have become connective tissue between the shows. Within Daredevil, I totally think that they're planning on Karen taking over Claire's duties as a medic and confidant for Matt. With Luke Cage, Luke will probably be fine on his own. And Misty will be Danny and Colleen's sidekick for Iron Fist.

Just a few episodes in and I'm loving Bushmaster already. Still think Mike Colter isn't that great of an actor and is actually the weakest in the cast. But he does ok.
