"Marvel's The Defenders" follows Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage and Iron Fist. A quartet of singular heroes with one common goal - to save New York City. This is the story of four solitary figures, burdened with their own personal challenges, who realize they just might be stronger when teamed together.
As of this series, Captain America and Iron Man are the only Avengers referred to by name (Captain America in Daredevil season one, Tony Stark in season one of Luke Cage). All other references were rather subtle such as "an iron suit, or a magic hammer" said by Wesley in Daredevil, and "The big green dude and his crew" by both Luke and Jessica in Jessica Jones.

Better than Iron Fist but just for a bit. Disappointing
I saw all of the MarvelxNetflix series that came out. I would say that Daredevil was by far the best, but didn't quite love Jessica Jones, and then Iron fist was really bad... Finn Jones is not a bad actor but I think that he just doesn't know how to play a good Danny Rand.
DEFENDERS was supposed to be the AVENGERS of netflix and it really disappoint. I was wondering how would they balance the gathering of this actors in one series and it sucked. Didn't work.
Better just wait for the Punisher.
