Default Iron Fist - Netflix

Anyone else watching this?


Yeah so I know it's St. Paddy's Day and most are out drinking the green beer, but some of us have sick kids at the house. Anyways I'm about 3 episodes into this thing, and it's pretty good so far. Think Arrow back when it was good with a little Chinese mythology added in.

It's getting poor reviews. There's too much good stuff on these days to try out a marginal show.

We are on episode 6, it's good imo. Right up there with the other marvel/Netflix series. Very similar storyline to the Arrow series like other posters said.

The only Marvel show I watched on Netflix is Daredevil. I watched the whole 1st season and it was a little below average. Had a cheesy broadcast network feel to it. I've never tried Luke Cage or the Kristen Ritter show.

The best Marvel based show is Leigon on FX. That show is badass.

Daredevil imo got much better as the first season progressed, the first half or so everything looked very "staged" and choreographed. Haven't started Legion yet, it's def on the list tho, question for you, is it tied into the current marvel/avengers tv/movie universe?

It does not appear to be. It's kind of it's own thing and reminds me somewhat of the movie Inception b/c much of the show is spent jumping through the protagonist's memories and psyche.

Noah Hawley, who made Fargo for FX, is the showrunner. If you've seen the 1st 2 seasons of Fargo, you'll know that you're in very capable hands.

OK guys. I finished up episode 8 last night. There is a scene where he fights a drunken master. All negative arguments have been rendered invalid.

Yup....way too much violence from some blind guy and not enough substance. Just didn't grab me.

I've had much more success watching foreign crime series with subtitles. I've enjoyed the scenery and cultures displayed as much as the stories themselves. And a few have excellent twists and turns as well as cinematography.

Foggy is just a terrible character. That actor is so annoying.

It is getting absolutely crushed in just about every article posted about it online.

Netflix and Marvelís Iron Fist is an ill-conceived, poorly written disaster

Yeah that just confirms to me that critics don't know what the hell they are talking about most of the time. I'm thoroughly enjoying this show, and so are a lot of other people.

daredevil season 1 was awesome in every regard, though yeah i could do without foggy. i just finished up iron fist, its watchable but the action and the characters other than colleen just didnt grab me. it has a lot to live up to when compared to the other marvel netflix shows and even daredevil's season 2 reviews werent close to as good as season 1. legion is in the x-men universe but they havent really explored tying it in with any x-men characters, its really its own mind bending entity with mutants at this point. great show
