'The Defenders' (CBS)

What we said then: "We had written 'The Defenders' off as a silly show that would be one of the first to be canceled. But two episodes in, we're pleasantly surprised at how entertaining it is." What we say now: We're still on board with "pleasantly surprised." It isn't knocking our socks off, or going to win any Emmys, but it is fun and entertaining. And that's more than can be said for a lot of this season's new shows. -- Andrea Reiher, Zap2it
