Since Netflix doesn't release ratings, who knows how disappointed they are?
I think it's juggling what Marvel wants for their upcoming Marvel streaming service. And the fact that they're just too damn long. Who wants to sit through the equivalent of an 11-hour IF movie? I think that Netflix is realizing that the binge-watching audience ain't the way to go. I suppose it has the advantage of people not realizing that it sucks until after it's over. IF would have been lucky to get a 13-episode order on network TV. But they paid people to produce the equivalent of an 11-hour IF movie and then an 8-hour movie. And what did they get for it? A bunch of critics complaining about how lousy to mediocre it was.
Bummer. If Luke Cage bought it, after Defenders and Iron Fist, it's hard to imagine the others three Marvel/Netflix shows will make it. Maybe Daredevil, but Jessica Jones and Punisher don't look too good.
Was it the full episode, or just a... sneak peek?
I preferred "The Commuter", but this is second best of the first five.
