A well deserved 1 out of 10
23 September 2017 | by See all my reviews

Afflicted by the same pacing problems as the Iron Fist series, the finale somehow manages to heap on unforeseeable layers of insult to a cripplingly injurious amount with its cringeworthy dialogue, filler action, anemic plot and total lack of suspense. It would be surprising if any more series of The Defenders get commissioned since the writers clearly have no ideas left if this episode is anything to go by. Disappointing.
