I'm on episode 6 of Iron Fist.

I dunno why the bad reviews. I'm liking it. It's good, honestly. I think critics are expecting a quick climax and ending like the Marvel movies. The art of the Marvel story is lost on them.

I want the origin to be that. A start and build up.

I saw a review in USA Today that said he "kung-fu splained" martial arts to Jessica Henwick (Colleen Wing). And that she should be the Iron Fist. Wtf..why? He was trained to be a Master and The Iron Fist. Why? Just because he's white and she's Asian, she should be better?

It's a story...strong female leads are not a rarity in Marvel. Jessica Jones anybody? Which, btw, was also freaking awesome. She's a bonifide badass.

Anywho...I'm liking it do far. But I'm a mark for Marvel shit. What say you?

1. Planning to start watching it soon

Watched Daredevil, Luke Cage, Jessica Jones, Marvel Agents of SHIELD and all of the movies.

I'm really looking forward to Punisher if they make that into a show; he was awesome in Daredevil.

3. John Berthal is the perfect Punisher.

I'm anxiously awaiting that series. Netflix is hitting home runs with these characters. Redefining television. Something HBO had started, and now Netflix is perfecting.

5. Only up to episode 3

But I'm not getting why the bad reviews either. The story is moving along, we have a nice little conspiracy, the first crossover character from other series (not counting the first villains, who haven't been seen yet), Colleen Wing is certainly not shown to be weak, just not up to the level of Danny, which is faithful to canon. This is very much a good modern take on the character and his story, just like Luke Cage's story was updated from it's Blackspoitation roots.

I'm liking this show just as much as the rest of Marvels works on Netflix.

6. Exactly.

We are about to watch 4 and 5 right now.

It fits nicely with the other Netflix Marvel series thus far, and it is going to be fucking amazing when the Defenders comes out.

The average attention span of the younger generation is less than 10 minutes. When you have shows like this that take 10 plus minutes to tell a backstory or to engage a plot twist, it is considered a 'bad show' with critics panning it.

Fuck 'em, I like character development and Netflix Marvel series are hitting that aspect of the storylines out of the park.

A car honks it's horn. A man tells "Hey! I'm walking here!"

10. An evil secret society of ninjas.

Daredevil also dealt with them in his series.

12. Give it a shot, again.

Some of the fight scenes are amazingly choreographed. Season 1 when he rescues the boy and fights in a hallway and rooms. And season 2 had a crazy good fight sequence on the stairs against the bikers. By far the best of the Netflix Marvel series.
