JXM - Ranking MCU Netflix (2015-2017)

This is my ranking order for "phase 1" MCU Netflix shows.

List items

  • What can I say about this show that hasn't already been said? Great plot, great acting, probably the best MCU villain (show or movie) so far, etc. Just all around great series.

  • I was going to divide this series into two, but I didn't think that was fair. This was a solid show, even if the second half of S2 was lackluster. Great plot, good villains, good supporting cast, and this series still has the best action in the Netflix MCU so far.

  • Fantastic. I don't think it captured the Punisher, but I don't think it was trying to. This is very much a Frank Castle origin story, and I feel confident we'll see the Punisher in the future. The action took time to build, but it made the show all the more tense. There was a lot of character in this show.

  • It's a good show with a good plot. I'm just not sure how I feel about the villains or the side characters, but to elaborate would be a spoiler. I'll just say it's a really good show.

  • Honestly, this didn't live up to the hype for me. It really felt like Iron Fist's presence just dragged everything else down. At the end of the day, this felt more like a Daredevil epilogue than anything else.

  • You saw it coming. This show suffered from mediocre acting, a boring plot, terrible fight scenes, and a boring villain. The best character in the series comes late.
