    Episode 13 - Where In Danny Stares Angrily and Uselessly at his Fist.




    Meh. I give the series a 3 out of 10. Maybe a 4. The Meachams were good. Colleen, Claire, and Hogarth were all good. The Hand villains were solid. Danny was a waste of time and space.


    Is it just me, or was Madam Gao only Tong back in DD? I know the Hand was represented by the Japanese dude and the hand mooks were all 'ninja', so it gave the Hand a very Japanese flavor, but I was also under the impression that Gao was not Hand back then.

    Obviously (as per IF) she's been Hand the whole time (and is quite old) vut does anyone remember any hints that she was Hand back then? I was strongly under the impression that she was actually against the Hand at that point (granted it could have been a factional thing even then, but again, I was under the impression she wasn't Hand).

    Shit yeah.

    My friend thought they needed to find a young Jackie Chan to play Iron Fist.


    Well, here's hoping Finn gets more martial arts and acting lessons before the Defenders starts shooting.

    If they had made an Iron Fist movie in the 90's they could've gotten Brandon Lee. He would've been perfect.

    Saw the first episode which I enjoyed more than Luke Cage and Jessica Jones.

    Sadly it goes downhill from there. First 1-2 episodes are probably the best.

    Done with 11.

    Danny seems portrayed as having the emotional maturity of a 10 year old. I had hoped it would be intentional, but it doesn't seem so.

    I think the fight scenes would have been better if they had had a few more with Danny simply mopping the floor with people. He seems too vulnerable, and it's not just his skill, it's the portrayal.
    It seems to me the lack of emotional maturity is intentional, actually. It represents his inability to get over his survivor's guilt, basically.

    I don't care much for his weird flashback effect.

    The fight scenes weren't as cool as Daredevil's.

    He did appear too weak compared to his opponents, but maybe that was intentional, too - he didn't come to New York as actually fully trained Iron Fist that actually understands all his powers.

    I think the bigger problem is the seeming inconsistency - why has he sometimes more trouble with an enemy, and sometimes less. The fight with Harold should have been a lot easier for him than it was potrayed, even if the guy was physical fit, he had no real martial training. Once the gun was taken care of, it should have been trivial to him.


    It was overall definitely the weakest of the series so far. But I liked the Meachums, and want to see more of Joy and Ward. I am not sure if I can really see her on a dark path anymore, though. It seems that she had started to grow above that. I can see her brother turning on a new leaf more easily. (But I suppose that would make them boring.)

    Colleen was great. Is her character from the comics and has a future as crime-fighting superhero?

    Yes. Although they're following the comics loosely. I think she made a splinter group of the Hand eventually so that might come into play.
