Is it just me or did Marvel/writers acknowledge how annoying Dan Rand was and actually wrote in all those snide potshots at him?



And yeah, even in this new series, I find Iron Fist to be not my fave character. Has a nasty habit of reminding peeps on the show who he is and etc. etc. etc. Colleen should dump him.

Can't decide if it's the Danny Rand character that's bad or the actor. Or both.

Overall, the show was okay.

I'd have to rank the Marvel shows as:

Daredevil > Jessica Jones ≥ Luke Cage > The Defenders > Iron Fist

The actor doesn't help. He literally has one expression throughout the season and it's that angry/threatening look.

Easily the most annoying MCU character to-date. But, I am pretty sure the snarky comments throughout the episodes are a shoutout to their recognition that the Iron Fist series was a trainwreck.

Finished the series. Not terrible...but found the last 2 episodes a bit on the so-so side. Ah well.

I'd have to agree with your rankings though I'd probably flip LC and Def post-Cotton Mouth.

The first joint fight in the boardroom with IF and Cage was pretty cool but it seemed to tail off when DD and JJ showed up. I was like damn I waited 5 seasons for that. I think the fight where IF is fighting Elie and the other 3 are fighting together was one of the better fights. Overall show was ok.

I was all excited to watch this series but the very first scene of E1 was the Iron Fist guy, who is a terrible actor... I had to turn it off... Maybe give it a try again later

Yep, he pretty much single-handedly brings down this series. It's not the worst you'll see but it's definitely not on the same caliber as DD.

I don't think any of the Netflix Marvel shows are on the same caliber as DD

Spoiler


What. What are we talking about again?
