TeeVee 343: The Defenders S1E8 Review: "The Defenders"

We have reached the end of the season and now it is time to talk finale with an eye over our shoulder to see how we got here. Was this Marvel team-up good enough? We found some shiny points, as well as some holes 30 ninjas couldn’t fill. Join us as we blow up a building and sift through the wreckage.

TeeVee 334: The Defenders S1E7 Review: "Fish in the Jailhouse"

There be dragons on this game of heroes? Wait, what?! It is time for a penultimate recap of our Defenders getting down and dirty before the fall of everything we know. Tony, Lisa and Moze explore the finer details of how a team up deals with a less than adversary. Dive into the hole under New York City with us to maybe find the real narrative hole.

TeeVee 321: The Defenders S1E6 Review: "Ashes, Ashes"

“The Defenders” takes a dive at the dynamics of what makes a superhero team-up… well, super! Lisa, Tony and Moze start to cut through and analyze this episode with our special brand of fine-toothed comb. We look at how power levels and pairing off teammates works inside of the story up to now.

TeeVee 312: The Defenders S1E5 Review: "Take Shelter"

Lisa, Tony, and Moze continue on to episode 5!

We chat about confusion of the various character’s power levels (a classic nerd debate!), whether Bakuto is credible as a villain, and of course: character wardrobe analysis.

Also we mix up “Black Sky” and “Black Hand” a lot, sorry about that!

TeeVee 308: The Defenders S1E4 Review: "Royal Dragon"

Lisa, Tony, and Moze are back together to dish on perhaps the best episode of the Defenders: “Royal Dragon.” We finally get the info dump on what the Hand’s org structure is, get to see the defenders get on each other’s nerves, and ask the eternal question: where have all the ninjas gone?

TeeVee 297: The Defenders S1E2 Review: "Mean Right Hook"

Lisa, Tony, and special guest Nathan Alderman take apart episode 2 of the Defenders miniseries.
