The Defenders are leaving Netflix. What comes next?
While in many ways it is the era of hero tv (and movies), 2019 carved a bloody swath through the shows that were around. This is my look back at the series that didn’t make it to 2020.

“The Basement,” the sixth episode of Luke Cage’s second season, picks up where the fifth episode left off, Luke shielding Piranha Jones as they run from the horde of Bushmaster’s gunmen.
