This week, Netflix’s Marvel series, "Daredevil," "Jessica Jones," "Luke Cage," and "Iron Fist," will finally come together in "The Defenders."
Over the last month, executive producers of more than 30 current genre shows have taken part in Yahoo TV’s “Why Genre Shows Matter” survey, either via email or by phone. We’ve learned which genre show was the first to resonate with them, which genre show they believe deserved more Emmy love, which current genre show they think is tackling an issue well, and, if they were a Buffy the Vampire Slayer fan, what moment, episode, or arc best explains why in honor of the show’s 20th anniversary.
What was the first genre show to resonate with you? 1. HBO owes a “thank you” to The Incredible Hulk. Because when you’re a skinny, nerdy 10-year-old, you wish you could transform into a painted green Lou Ferrigno and beat the living s–t out of anyone who makes you angry.

There are a lot of dangerous acts on America’s Got Talent, and Tuesday night, one almost turned deadly. Daredevil Ryan Stock, along with his fiancée AmberLynn Walker, has been shocking the AGT judges and audiences all season by sticking stuff in his nose, putting a blow torch out on his tongue, and holding a chainsaw in his mouth. During their live performance, Ryan had stuck a tube down his throat with a bullseye on the end of it, and AmberLynn set up on a ladder to shoot a flaming arrow through the bullseye and into the tube.

Never mind what Marty McFly says. In our opinion, it’s totally cool to be chicken. March 19 marks National Poultry Day, and we’re seizing the opportunity to celebrate some of our current favorite TV chickens. Not actual fowl, of course, although there are plenty of those to be found on the airwaves.
The second season of Daredevil starts streaming on Netflix on Friday, and it re-shapes and sharpens the series in new ways. The first seven episodes made available for review introduce two key characters from the Marvel Comics series—the Punisher (Jon Bernthal) and Elektra (Elodie Yung)—and tinker with Daredevil Matt Murdock’s law-office relationships. Thus we get lots of knock-down, drag-out fistfights between Charlie Cox’s Daredevil and Bernthal’s Frank Castle, the emotionally-wounded war vet who becomes known as the Punisher, followed by some awfully long discussions between the two about how ethically vexed it is to engage in knock-down, sometimes murderous fistfights, complete with dialogue such as “I think that the people I kill deserve killing.” It would be an interesting debate if the speeches were as vivid as the fight scenes are.
The upcoming Justice League: Part One has added Oscar winner J.K. Simmons to its cast as Batman’s ally, a possibly-retired Commissioner Jim Gordon. Simmons, replacing Gary Oldman in the role, is no stranger to comic book movies - he played Jean Grey in X-Men. Kidding.
In 2015, television made us laugh, it made us cry, it made us text friends “OMG?!” There were so many incredible moments that we couldn’t stop talking about on Twitter, in the office kitchen, via Skype with our moms. Related: The 26 Best TV Episodes of 2015 There were hilarious musical numbers like “Pinot Noir” on Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt and Kristen Wiig’s “Chandelier” dance at the Grammys. We stopped breathing for a few minutes during thrilling fights on Justified and Daredevil.
The arrival of another Independence Day has us thinking of the TV characters (and, in some cases, actors) we’d like to see declare their independence from shows that don’t always properly value their contributions.
