    I'm 3 episodes in and it's finally starting to get interesting. Sucks to hear it doesn't finish strong though, at least in avvie's opinion.

    Yeah, you should definitely form your own opinion on it.

    Enjoying the new version of The Tick. About 6 eps in, I think. I'm not terribly familiar with the two original shows; only saw a couple episodes of each, but I seems that this one is not those. This is one episodic story line, obviously comedy but propelled by tragedy. Arthur is the central character; a victim of PTSD and possibly mentally ill according to friends and family, he struggles to maintain normalcy when The Tick appears and starts propelling him forward against his will towards his "destiny" of becoming a superhero. Mayhem ensues, as expected. The banter between the characters is pretty fun, but I usually LOL at the sight gags and references, such as the Spam knockoff "Fo-Ham" and a scene in the evil villain's lair when he asks his home AI "Alexa, play ominous music!"
    Fun stuff.

    Finished up Defenders. I have to agree with avvie about the ending kinda falling flat. I felt the two episodes before the finale were probably the strongest of the series. The finale wasn't bad. It was just kinda "That's it?"

    Overall though, I liked it quite a bit more than I thought I would after the first episode or two. The portrayal of Iron Fist is just so weak and uninspired he sticks out like a sore thumb in the group. Seems that character should've been way more interesting than he turned out to be.

    My issue wasn't so much the storyline but that the climactic battle looked-and sounded- like it came right out of an episode of Arrow. Daredevil started this Netflix MCU by putting gritty realism to the fight choreography; Iron Fist comes along and settles for 1970's Wonder Woman choreography and cheapens everything. This lands in the middle: the CW supes universe.

    Cali cartel now man, I am liking it more than the first two seasons. More intrigue and suspense than with Pablo Escobar.
