    I hope Iron Fist turning out to be a Skrull in the MCU would solve so many issues incompetent showrunning caused.

    Nah. Too far fetched. We'll probably see Thanos and Lex Luthor, though.

    Hahaha, Inhumans too. They could start a storyline where Scott Buck actually becomes a Marvel Universe character and infects all the above with a Skrull virus.

    episode 6 or 7 is really good. But it takes a dip.

    I loved binging it back in sept2016

    Yeah a few people have said it takes a dip so I am prepared for it. I felt season 1 of DD took a dip around that point as well though.

    I didn't honestly mind the later episodes. I think it didn't have the same flavor of the early ones, but I liked the comic book-ness of them. Netflix shows tend to downplay it sometimes so Diamondback, to me, was a sign that they can go in that direction. Although, given how many people said it was bad, maybe they won't.

    I definitely would like to see Netflix go more comic booky and outrageous with their stuff. Heck, a Heroes for Hire team-up almost calls for it. It's not that Diamondback was more comic booky. It was the fact he didn't mesh with the show tonally, fit the description as the great mastermind he was hyped as, and the twist of him being Luke's brother was far too convenient and stupid. He was just not handled well at all. I finished the 1st season of Luke Cage, but it was mostly out of obligation since I invested 7 episodes by that point. Mentally, they lost me at "I AM YOUR BROTHER!!!"

    Looks like Blu Ray for this is dropping on Tuesday, for those like me that enjoy Physical Media :)

    Albeit, I pretty much am only getting this out of my completionist collecting mentality. Such a wasted second half of the season.

    It's been out here in the UK for a few weeks on BD, started watching and enjoyed the first 3 episodes.

    However may send it back as the case is severely cracked. Discs are fine so still debating.

    I'd buy these if they weren't still on Netflix (or if they don't move to a Disney streaming service).

    I was hoping for a box set, but I don't think I want to take the chance of the BluRays selling out.

    I must have missed it, but apparently season 2 completed filming like 3 weeks ago.

    Oh nice one. I'm doing a rewatch of the whole Netflix universe (done JJ, IF, getting on with LC and leaving DDx2 to last). Watched Defenders and Punisher recently. Look forward to having second seasons of all this stuff to get into.

    I def need to do a rewatch sooner or later. Probably after Jessica Jones s2 drops. I guess this pretty much should secure LCS2 dropping sometime during summer. Maybe July

    Yeah, maybe we get a new show every 3 months or so.

    I don't see anywhere for pre-orders, but Amazon has a listing with no picture, and the product details show 12/12/17 as the release date (Amazon has a freeze on Disney pre-orders so that isn't uncommon) and Best Buy as a listing for pre-order, but the Best Buy listing says it is a DVD, but shows a blu ray picture. Hence why I have not jumped on that pre-order. I am just going to check Amazon and other sites tomorrow and see if it is readily out, or see if a nearby store has it tomorrow after work.
