Iron Fist

#1

Not… very good.


What TV show are you currently watching?
#2

Except for Colleen Wing who is quite good as a supporting actor, although still boring.


#3

I love the comic but don’t think I’ll bother with the TV series.


#4

moi aussi. super, super slow-paced series. Like the second half of Cage but even slower


#5

Oh shit, really?? immediately loses interest :frowning:


#6

even the fight scenes are really slow. it’s bonkers.


#7

Arggh the trailer had got me fairly pumped for this even after it had taken MONTHS for me and my friends to wade through Luke Cage…


#8

three episodes will break you fully dude. once it’s finished, it’s a mildly satisfying setup. but you know the marvel films which are literally just for the setup? It’s one of those deals. Defenders will be fine.


#9

I was just about to type questioning about its promise of a set up for the defenders series :confused:

Hmm I’ll still watch it regardless, I guess…


#10

Watched the first episode yesterday. Badly scripted, wooden acting, poorly paced, main guy horribly miscast…

Seems like the first real duffer from the whole Marvel/Netflix deal.


#11

The first few episodes have absolutely no respect for the audience at all. Completely stupid. Improves marginally but it is pretty fucking shit so far (just started ep.7).

Good things:
Title music
Faramir
Colleen Wing


#12

think this has made my mind up


#13

There’s one other character who appears towards the end who is good. But it’s litte compensation for having to get there


#14

He’s an awful choice, especially by comparison to the solid good choices across the board in the other series


#15

I just watched a scene in which I am almost certain Rosario Dawson was trying not to laugh at the absolute bullshit she had to say. Christ.


#16

spoilers (it’s shit though)

there’s a moment where Danny has to partake in three challenges. despite the hand being ninjas who are all in theory serious pros, the only female aggressor among them is in a corset, and tries to kiss him before she kills him. it’s that shit.


#17

Worst actors in the various Marvel Netflix series so far

Danny Rand
Electra
Nuke
Diamondback


#18

Main question: am I going to be fine to not bother with this and still be pretty much to speed with the Defenders?


#19

yeah im prob going to watch this. i thought luke cage was great though, but a large part of that may have been coz the soundtrack banged


#20

Confirmed.

Reading a wiki synopsis of the plot will be more than enough (even that’s slow and overly confusing though)
