Default Iron Fist - Netflix

Finished this yesterday, and it was great. As good as all the Marvel/Netflix shows.

I can't wait to see them pull them all together for the Defenders Mash-Up. I'm assuming a giant throw down with The Hand is in order.

Im not into the comic stuff, but I thought it was a decent show as well.

I didn't like it. I only saw a few cool things.. Looks like another series that may pick up in season 3 if it makes it that far.. Didn't like Jessica Jones. Luck cage was ok..
Daredevil was good and got a great reaction, but now I think Netflix is pumping out crap.

My complaint is all these movies are just too slow to start. Do we really need a 12 part introduction story?

That's why these are on Netflix. To develope a true backstory on a lesser known character. That's the point

lesser known to who? Hipsters that didn't read comics? DD was in the early 60s, Cage has been around longer than Wolverine, and Iron F was about the same exact time as W. I use Wolverine as a example because that's what the "cool kids" like.

I'm sorry but its painful to sit 13 hours and get to see powers used 3 times lol.

Not everyone is 60+ years old.... and if anyone from our generation read the 60's comics it'd be the fucking hipsters.

I was too busy playing outside when I was a kid so these back stories are nice IMO.

We went into it expecting a show similar to Daredevil and have been sort of disappointed so far. There's just not enough to it. There aren't even any flashbacks of him training or anything.

Well we are only about 5 episodes in I think. Rosario Dawson(sp) just got introduced. It's just not even on the same world as Daredevil was.

I *think* I'm on episode 4. There are some flash backs to the monks beating him with sticks, I assume to toughen him up and/or he said he gets more focus the harder he's hit. Maybe that's the key to focus your chi.

Yeah I think that's the only time we've seen the monks actually doing something. You HEAR him training in his head for about 20 seconds and you see a few flashbacks of him looking up from his back on the snow at the monks, but that's it so far. I do like the asian chick. She's hot.

Finished it last night, the story lune is solid and I bet season 2 spools up better. What is it with com8c books and if your family is wealthy they will die and you will become a superhero?
