Iron Fist

Liking it except for the cinematography. Wasn't  as boring as people was saying...so far.

What do you say?

Watched a few more episodes and it went downhill fast. 

Don't know what happened to everyone's posts, it just disappeared.

This show was a chore to get through.

I really do not care about anyone on the show at all.

I mean, its not as bad as the non JJ/Kilgrave stuff in Jessica Jones but I was forcing myself to finish it.

With DD, DD2, and LC, I was watching epsidoes every spare hour. This show, it was like, "well, nothing else to do..."

Every one of the Marvel Netflix shows had been a chore at one one or another. They'd all benefit from being 10 episodes instead of 13. It'll keep it from dragging in episode 9 or 10z.

I watched the first and half of the second episodes so far.
Hmm.  Lots of overly-lengthy confrontations that don't yield much, at least not initially.

So Ward is a d___, clearly, but we see where he gets it from.

I guess in future episodes it will reveal just how Daniel came back to NYC.

Pretty decent stunts, so far.

The Chinatown parade was a little convenient, but... lol..

So Colleen speaks what languages?

Love that Rosario Dawson's "Claire" is woven throughout Marvel Netflix U.  Her level of involvement here in I.F. though is more convenient than reasonable/suitably developed?

S P O I L E R S.......



Warmed up to Coleen but fear the character is diminishing after "getting some" Iron Fist.  Ugh!  That sounds really dirty, but you know what I mean.  Haven't finished yet, maybe she'll rally?  Hope so, always liked Colleen Wing/Misty Knight as Daughters of the Dragon!  Glad she got some though and wouldn't mind Danny and Misty thing not happening in the MNU.  It could be a threat to their partnership storyline though?

Danny's clueless, ham-fisted return to civilization/investigation of the Hand and Rand Enterprizes is more than a little disorienting, causing this series to drag IMO.

Peace,
