I'm liking it. Only on Ep 7.

I never read any comics and with a million characters, each with a million different storylines (half of them conflicting, retconned, or undone with time travel), I'm not about to start now.

I thought it was okay... not as good as the other Marvel series on Netflix.

I think what bothered me the most was, the way they portrayed him as a fighter. In some scenes he was super badass and couldn't be touched, then he got his ass handed to him by seemingly unworthy opponents. And for someone who earned the Iron Fist, he sure doesn't use it very often.

It sure as hell is boring so far, in episode 1. I'll keep going, but it is not interesting at all thus far.

<-- Did not read comic books as a kid either

Finished watching all 13 episodes. In hindsight many parts of it are slow, but will likely watch the second season when it comes out. The only comic I read as a kid was Superman, these more modern heroes weren't invented yet!

he comments several times that he left before completing his training after receiving the iron fist. Which is why he has trouble summoning it, etc.

The problem was that it didn't seem like he had trouble, it felt more like he didn't try.

yea i could see him turning into a total badass though...that one episode fought the three different people, that last one with his budha teaching was he smoked that guy....maybe in defenders he really centers since his home is gone and turns pure iron fist
