    Too many superhero shows seem to be on the way, but I think this is going to be good.

    I only watched Jessica Jones & Luke Cage because they tied into Daredevil. I'd probably watch this regardless, but this seems like the Batman/Arrow show of the Netflix universe.

    I started Luke Cake but haven't finished it yet. I liked JJ and Daredevil though.

    I think this will be way better than JJ or Luke Cage (both were sorta disappointing to me). It looks to be up there with Daredevil.

    Just finished this about 20 min ago.

    I give it a 6/10, it's worth watching if you like the other Netflix shows but it's not great.

    After seeing how it ends it makes me wish they had done some other things differently.

    A certain faction of people were mad he wasn't Asian, and Finn didn't help by engaging these people on twitter. I'm not sure that the people who are upset are even aware he's white in the comics (and casting Asians in martial arts rolls is progress for some reason).

    Also advanced reviewers only saw about the first 6 episodes, and the second half of the season is much better than the first. If they keep building up this character in the Defenders and I'm sure it will get a 2nd season then people will retroactively look back at this and say "it wasn't so bad".

    Finished it last night - it's definitely not that bad.

    It's not as exhausting as Jessica Jones (good lord how many times can you catch the villain then let him get away) and it's more consistent than Luke Cage (great first half, terrible second half).

    It was flawed. I'm not sure it was Finn, to me, it was more of the writing. The script seemed to be the culprit to me. I mean how many times does he have to say "I'm Danny Rand." It was just a little too on the nose throughout.

    Watched the first two episodes. I really like it so far. Excited to see how he and Cage interact once they meet.

    The fight scenes so far seem pretty bad for a dude that is supposed to be a martial arts expert.

    I think that's the largest complaint about the show. I do think they got better as the show went on but they're not even as good as DD and Fist is supposed to be the most prestigious martial arts guy living.

    Re: Marvel's Iron Fist (Netflix)

    Yeah, I was reading that it may just be the actor isn't that good at stunt-type stuff, and they are trying to mask that issue by lots of quick shots/edits that don't allow any of the fight to fall in a rhythm. I'm typically a fan of shows that depict a more real-world superhero vibe NOT having their heroes in masks/bright costumes, but if putting a mask on him means they get a stunt double and the fight scenes immediately improve, then I'm all for it.

    Not just an expert, it was his life 24/7. I don't expect him to master his powers, but random guy should be easy takedowns. At times regular nobodies appear to be his equal.
