Don't watch much TV but saw the first ep with someone and was pleasantly surprised -- seems like it's going to be more of a community/politically oriented show than a cape one, although hope and assume the ending was a nod towards Heroes for Hire.

Lightly skimming news to avoid major spoilers, interested in the Defenders. Might even be the thing that tips me into a Netflix sub.

Really enjoyed it. Didn't connect with me in the same way that Daredevil and Jessica Jones does, but that's probably a cultural thing that I can't help, and other people won't have that problem.

Reminded me a bit of The Wire in a few ways.

Re the ending
SPOILER! (select to read)
Big fan of how it ends with the surviving villains getting away with it, while the hero gets carted off to jail for something he hasn't done.

It's also an object lesson in why you should always have some form of screen locking on your phone.
