After you've seen all thirteen episodes! t:
They really stretched this season. Like seriously, it should have been 8 episodes. But it was still good. It wasn't as good as the first half of season 1 but far better than the second half of season 1.
Way better than Jessica Jones season 2. That was a
An excellent season that left me begging for more....
6/10. Just like the other Netflix shows, it felt like a slog. This could have been 6 to 8 episodes but once again stretched to 13 episodes. Story wise, nothing really impressed me. The action was average. The acting was okay. Over all, its just there. Not bad, not great.
This was a great season, a big improvement over the first. I also think it's the best series of 2018 so far, and that includes the second seasons of Legion and Westworld. To me, compared to the rest of the Netflix shows I'd only rank Daredevil seasons 1 and 2 above it.
1. Daredevil Season One
2. Daredevil Season Two
3. Luke Cage Season Two
4. Jessica Jones Season One
5. The Punisher Season One
6. The Defenders
7. Luke Cage Season One
8. Jessica Jones Season Two
9. Iron Fist Season One
1. DDS2 (9.5/10)
2. DDS1 (9.0/10)
3. Punisher S1 (9.0/10)
4. JJS1 (8.5/10)
5. LCS2 (8.5/10)
6. Defenders (8.0/10)
7. LCS1 (8.0/10)
8. JJS2 (7.5/10)
9. IFS1 (6.5/10)
So much better than JJS2. Not quite as good as the Cottonmouth saga, but substantially better than the Diamondback saga. I love this show. I think it stands at least as tall as JJ when you include this season. And I am really hoping we see IF compensate for the weak af S1 so that all these series can transcend.
3. Punisher S1
6. Defenders S1
As much as I enjoyed this season it just didn't come close to that first half of Season 1 IMO. Bushmaster being such a charismatic and well developed villain is what really elevated it for me and kept me engaged, but he ain't no Cottonmouth. At least it ended on a strong note though.
I gave it a 9. Really enjoyed this show. The villains made the show really. Loved Bushmaster, Shades, and all the Stokes.
I gave it an eight. Good season. Good performances, but a bit padded and too long.
solid season, surprisingly. I'd give it an eight. season 1 was a disaster, but this was promising. better story, better written characters, better acting and way better music
if I had to rank it, it'd go like this:
1. Jessica Jones Season One
2. Daredevil Season One
3. Jessica Jones Season Two
4. Iron Fist Season One
5. Luke Cage Season Two
6. Daredevil Season Two
7. Punisher Season One
8. Luke Cage Sason One
9. The Defenders
i thought it was a really really good season.
alfre woodward had so much fun with the role and made a great foil.
i thought there was some really good character development with basically everyone.
bushmaster turned out to be a really good anti-hero of sorts. wish his backstory episode came a little bit earlier.
fight choreography was much better.
also first gay reference in marvel (if i'm not mistaken).
and this version of iron fist is infinitely better than what he was on the show.
happy they focused on jamaicans all year (even if some of the accents were really watered down).
music was on point too.
all in all, solid 8+ out of 10 for this one. it connected with me.
I give this season a 4.5/5. Quite enjoyed it! I would rank them as:
Daredevil Season 1
Jessica Jones Season 1
The Punisher Season 1
Daredevil Season 2
Jessica Jones Season 2
Luke Cage Season 2
Iron Fist Season 1
Luke Cage Season 1
i just figured out who bushmaster reminded me apperance wise.
he's pookie on steroids...
I enjoyed this season more than the first, but I gave it a five because of how stone cold stupid the ending was. What were they thinking?
This is my ranking as well, though I might put Defenders above Luke Cage Season 2.
Daredevil Season 1 - 10/10
Daredevil Season 2 - 9/10
Luke Cage Season 2 - 9/10
The Punisher Season 1 - 9/10
Luke Cage Season 1 - 8.5/10
The Defenders - 8/10
Jessica Jones Season 1 - 7.5/10
Iron Fist Season 1 - 6.5/10
Jessica Jones Season 2 - 4/10
I gave it a 9. I thought this season was stronger than the first. I didn't mind the Diamondback stuff the first season, but this season didn't feel like it had any dips in quality. Maybe it's because it kept the action up with a lot of cat and mouse stuff, I don't know. I thought Bushmaster's motivations were great and the whole Stokes family drama as a whole was wonderful. The ending worked well and was mostly a surprise. It opens things up for an interesting season three and I hope they don't back away from the premise.
I absolutely loved this season and made up for the garbage that was last season.
So far my ranking of Marvel Netflix shows:
1) Daredevil season 1
2) Daredevil season 2
3) Luke Cage season 2
4) Defenders season 1
5) Jessica Jones season 1
6) Luke Cage season 1
7) Punisher season 1
8) Iron Fist season 1
9) Jessica Jones season 2 (boring as hell)
This season was great but I'm not big on the eps that go back decades to imprint character motivations. I don't agree with the good 6-8 eps and filler argument, more like 10-11 good ones.
I also don't like the "bad guy from eps 1-7 flips to more of a good guy in 8-13" plot points. Meh.
1. DD S1
2. JJ S1
3. LC S2
4. LC S1
5. JJ S2
7. DD S2
Unseen/no interest: Punisher and Iron Fist. The Iron Fist actor/character continues to blow chunks.
I enjoyed this. One of the better seasons. Excellent character development and depth. Sets up season 3 nicely leaving the character of Nightshade ready to pick up the mantle as the villain going forwards, perhaps aided by Bushmaster. Overall enthralling story telling. My ranking:
Luke Cage s2
Jessica Jones s1
Luke Cage s1
Jessica Jones s2
Iron Fist s1
Overall, a very good season with compelling villains, a good moral quandary for the hero, and mostly good-to-great performances. I especially enjoyed Bushmaster. But I do agree that it definitely could have been condensed into 10 episodes, especially if you cut out some of the musical numbers. I know thats part of the show, but it felt excessive this season, like they were just including it to fill time. Also, some of writing was really spotty in certain points... like when Bushmaster ties up Mariah and Tilda, but then unties Tilda and sets the house on fire. Somehow Tilda doesnt have enough time to untie Mariah, but enough time passes to allow D.W. to see the house burning and go find Luke, and for Luke to come save them both. Like, really?
Still, overall, it was a really good season.
From Best to Worst
1. DD Season 1 10/10
2. DD Season 2 9.5/10
3. The Punisher 9/10
4. Jessica Jones Season 1 9/10
5. Jessica Jones Season 2 8/10
6. The Defenders 7.5/10
7. Luke Cage Season 1 7.5/10
8. Iron Fist Season 1 7/10
9. Luke Cage Season 2 6.5/10
Can't see many agreeing with me but seriously thought this latest season of Luke Cage was the worst one of the Marvel Netflix shows so far. Out of any of the series so far this one felt like it had by far the most filler, the Shades & Maria relationship was painful to watch im not an actor but neither of them looked comfortable with it, Luke Cage to me wasn't the first, second or even third most interesting character on the show.
I really enjoyed this season, and I thought the whole cast did an excellent job. In many ways, I thought it was stronger than the first season because, while I liked Season 1 a lot, I felt that the second half of Season 1 was a lot weaker than the first half. With Season 2, I felt that the whole season was very strong from start to finish overall. Some parts were a little slow in the pacing, but I was still very intrigued and entertained.
The strength of the show's characters helped a lot in keeping me interested. Luke, Misty, Bushmaster, Mariah, Shades, Tilda, and the others all had strong portrayals. That went a long way in making the season a great experience for me. I give it a 10.
Finally got around to finishing the season, and I actually liked it! Color me surprised because the first season was my 2nd least-favorite of all the Marvel seasons, after Iron Fist. But yeah, this was a huge step up. Mariah was far more interesting this season (Woodard KILLED IT), Shades continued to be a highlight and Misty was awesome, as opposed to mildly decent. Her team-up with Colleen was almost as fun as Luke's team-up with Iron Fist. Speaking of, it took 3 different shows, but I FINALLY managed to like Iron Fist! Huzzah! Well-played, Luke Cage team. I need both duos to get shows now, please.
Mike Coulter remains the weak link for me, unfortunately, but he did alright and the supporting cast was totally able to hold my interest this time. This season ended in a very interesting place that actually managed to get me interested in Season 3, so, bravo.
