Yeah, Jessica Jones is my favorite of the Netflix superhero shows.

There are different things I like about each of the series (DD1 & 2, JJ, and Cage).

Overall, I'd have to say I liked Jessica Jones the most. That may have a lot to do with David Tennant more than anything, though.

In Daredevil season 2 the only parts I really liked were with Punisher and Wilson Fisk in prison. There should be more stuff like that and less about the moral struggles of Daredevil and Luke. I get that's part of the story, but it drags on when the same things get repeated over 10+ episodes. I want more story, less brooding. We all know these heroes are brooding. We can see it in their faces. We don't need redundant dialogue between characters that doesn't lead to anything we don't already know.

New show- The Iron Fist.
I wonder if at some point all the Netflix Marvell shows will get connected. (Jones, Cage, daredevil)

Watched a couple of episodes, not too bad.

I'm a Marvel fan. Two episodes left of Iron Fist.  Found some great footage online of the making of The Defenders.  Cool to see all of them together. 

Went to see Logan 2x last weekend.  Sad to see the Wolverine character gone, but his daughter is no joke!

I'm about a quarter of the way through Iron Fist—so far, so good. Luke Cage has been my favorite so far, particularly because of the cool shoutouts to the original comic elements, like the yellow shirt, chain belt, and metal headband and cuffs. Really looking forward to the Defenders!

Of the Marvel shows I've completed.  I'd rank the them like this.

Jessica Jones
Daredevil Season 1

Luke Cage



Daredevil Season 2


As you can tell, not a fan of DD Season 2.  It was far too disjointed and all over the place.  It felt like 3 different seasons all melded together and not in a good way.  It just didn't know what it wanted to be.  I though JJ did a much better job of introducing Cage than DD did in introducing the Punisher, and Elektra, and the Hand.  DD 2 had no real villain.  It was just a mess.

Cage started off great, but then it felt like it should end around episode 7, but then dragged on for 6 more episodes with almost an entirely new show.  Had they kept that season to 10 episodes I think it would have helped it a great deal.  And I know they want to keep the heroes separate until the Defenders, but there were a couple of points where I'm wondering why Cage isn't picking up the phone to call JJ (since you know they know each other). 

I'm about 7 episodes into Iron Fist.  I like it a lot thus far, but at this point in Cage I thought it might be the best Marvel show and then it went down hill.  Fist isn't as good as JJ or DD 1, but pretty solid show into the midway point.

I'm really looking forward to the Defenders which is only like  8 episodes so it should be a nice short compact series.

Yeah, Jessica Jones is my favorite of the Netflix superhero shows.

Of all the Defenders-related stuff, Jessica Jones is the character I was least familiar with, but I ended up liking the series, in big part because Kilgrave was, to me, the most terrifying of all Marvel villains to date (movies included).

Also, I'm really hoping we get to see Hellcat.

I think I'm about the only Marvel fan that didn't like Jessica Jones all that much.

I'd say:

Luke Cage
Daredevil I

Daredevil II


Jessica Jones

All have been somewhat uneven. The beginning half of Luke Cage was definitely better than the latter half. Daredevil II dragged when Punisher or Fisk wasn't on screen, but that season had incredible highs.

I haven't had time to watch Iron Fist yet, but the criticism that they cast a white character with a white actor doesn't concern me at all.

So far for me its been

Daredevil 1
Luke Cage


Ironfist
Daredevil 2


Jessica Jones




Loved DD1 and especially D'Onofrio as Kingpin.

Cage had the most consistent quality and best storyline to me.

Ironfist had a great story but I think the guy playing Ironfist sucks and the character too many times comes off weak and dumb.

Daredevil 2 was just too disjointed.

Jessica Jones was just boring as hell

This is how I'd rank it too, with adding Iron Fist just above Jessica Jones. My issue isn't with the skin tone of Iron Fist, but rather that he's sort of whiney and annoying.
