Marvel’s The Defenders Pre-Show Podcast #2: Daredevil / Jessica Jones from August 16th, 2017


The Devil of Hell’s Kitchen and the most disgruntled detective in New York City are the topics of the day here on Post Show Recaps.
In their second of three preseason preview shows, Josh Wigler (@roundhoward) and Jim Gibbons (@TheJimGibbons) weigh in on two of the four DEFENDERS heroes: Daredevil and Jessica Jones. Over the course of the podcast, Josh and Jim lay out their opinions on both characters based on their comic book origins and their previously released seasons, plus make some predictions for where these brooding heroes might be headed once the new series begins.
Subscribe to the podcast at, and check back on Friday for our third and final preview, focused on Luke Cage and Iron Fist.

    It seems inevitable that these Defenders podcasts will be full of both hosts crapping all over the Iron Fist show, which would have been appropriate in the Iron Fist podcast. But that podcast is over (and these guys are just getting started!) and yet we still get multiple instances of them talking about how awful it was.

    So far I’m not that impressed by the new guy Gibbons. He seems to be doubling down on “Iron Fist is the worst TV show I have ever seen” hyperbole, which, whatever – it’s his opinion. But then he says that he loves the Daredevil movie, which many people say is awful. Apparently he doesn’t recognize the irony of him saying that Iron Fist (which was the second most viewed Marvel Netflix show) is awful, and yet saying that he loves the DD movie which many people say is awful. Unfortunately I don’t expect this type of cognitive dissonance regarding IF to go away in the upcoming Defenders podcasts.
