I enjoyed Iron Fist quite a bit. And I've really enjoyed most of the Marvel Netflix series' and am looking forward to The Defenders and The Punisher.

I did hear some negativity from some friends of mine about Iron Fist, and how they felt like the series didn't match with the comic much at all. They made it sound like the Iron Fist was much more powerful and such a better character than portrayed in the series. Personally, I don't know, but I do think that in The Defenders Danny will be developed even more, and become more powerful.

Of the series, I think Daredevil has been my favorite, as well. I like the character, I like the fighting in it, and I enjoyed the extra characters with Electra, Kingpin, Punisher, and even Stick. I've really enjoyed the way they've developed The Hand as the bad guys, and we got to see more of what Madame Gao is capable of in Iron Fist.

I'm really looking forward to seeing how they all get brought together.


I hear they are expecting Punisher to be later this year.

Rand had only just gotten the power of the Iron Fist. Of course, he is just learning. I also do not expect him to be emotionally stable either. He just came home 15 years after losing his parents. He just gained incredible power. I would expect the wounds would reopen. There were a couple points that he specifically learned on camera. I think there were areas to improve. They had the time.
I was happy to see Madam Gau get more screen time.

Hey Bulltahr. It looks like you (and others in New Zealand) can catch it on SoHo! https://www.sky.co.nz/soho

I'm currently starting with Daredevil Season 1 and working through them all again, preparing for The Defenders.

I just need to learn that things like this are for ENTERTAINMENT, and not to be taken so serious....and I need to learn this as soon as I can. I still hate myself for being the way I am when it comes to shows/movies with a MA plot.

Come on, Bob, get your head out of the clouds, and enjoy the entertainment aspect....gee whiz!!




I finally did learn that! For me, it wasn't MA movies, it was cop movies. I had been a cop too long to watch 'em without going "oh that's just ridiculous, he'd still be on admin leave from the last shooting. And I've yet to see him submit ONE use of force report!". Finally learned - ya want reality, it's outside. Ya want brain candy, grab the remote

I like Iron Fist. Interesting characters. Especially how one can make you go from hating him to feeling sorry for him (Ward).

Good show, but it is no "Badlands"
