    It's not as bad as some of the reviews made it sound, but there are still problems. Overall it's still fun so far.

    the fighting is pretty bad
    the pace is very very slow
    danny's character is still pretty annoying

    The first episode was definitely the weakest of the Marvel shows so far.

    Serious lack of kicking bad guys through a train.

    Danny bugs the shit out of me.

    He seems bewilderingly naive and dumb much of the time.

    Also there seems to be remarkably little fighting in a show about a guy who's supposed to be a living weapon. DareDevil saw more action than this (so far, I'm on episode 4).

    Yeah I get that danny hasn't been on earth in 15 years but he really needs to pick up the script faster

    It's just that there's so little. For a hero who has kung fu superpowers, he doesn't really do a lot of kung fu in this show.

    I am after 7 episodes (I had access to first 6 episoded for reviewing purposes, so I had a headstart).

    It may be surprising for you, but in my opinion Ward is the most interesting character in this series.

    Obviously skipping around is not going to give me a good picture of this show overall but I have been doing just that and determined that it does not get much better, at all. The guy playing danny is very bad, the fighting looks like someone took two lessons in karate and said I'm good

    Like let me put it this way: Daredevil is a way better Iron Fist show.

    Upto Episode 2
    Presumably they are gonna explain why Faramir faked his death. and went from running a multi billion company, to running a multi billion company from behind the scenes, with his son as a front man while living in a secret(?) penthouse. And with only a submissive manservant for company. What the hell is his deal.
    Because at the moment i'm finding this a much bigger mystery than how Danny survived and became Iron Fist while living an alternate dimension martial arts city

    Finished up episode one

    It is slow, and it absolutely expects you to care about the cast for no reason other than them being the main cast and some of the performances are real bad. It also doesn't provide a clean hook early on like the other 3 shows. If I wasn't already super invested in Iron Fist I would not have a ton of drive to dig into this wholesale after just the first episode.

    But I didn't think it was the absolute trash fire that has been hyped so far and Jones had been a pretty solid Danny so far, although he hasn't had that much to do. I am super happy
    Harold is around because Ward is fucking terrible

    Oh also I like Colleen a lot!

    I don't like it very much so far after 4 episodes. Its not so bad that I wont keep watching (I am always in need of content to watch while painting)

    Danny is annoying and seems to be about as bright as a goldfish

    The actual fighting is sparse for a show about a martial arts master named Iron Fist

    The actual fighting scenes are no where as good as Daredevil

    The ninja stuff is not as good as the ninja stuff in Daredevil

    The ninja stuff in Daredevil was my least favorite stuff in Daredevil

    Episode 2 is one of my least favorite tv 'tropes' (ugh Im sorry)

    Danny's acting isnt great which makes me wonder why they didnt get any other dude bro who isn't great at acting but IS great at choreography

    Colleen is the one bright spark in the show

    Ward's actor seems like he watched the pre-car crash portion of Doctor Strange, and decided to mimic Cumberbatch in every way possible

    Also, a few extremely leaden lines of dialogue aside, I'm kind of enjoying Iron Fist. I can already tell it will not be nearly as memorable as the other Marvflix shows, but the fight choreography only really stuck out as bad to me in the very first episode. I'm about to start episode 8, and there have been some cool fights.

    It probably helps that my expectations couldn't have been lower, but "not the trash fire I expected" per Blank's post is pretty accurate.

    The fights aren't as, like, horrendously bad as I've seen people talk about

    Like Daredevil's are much better but these are perfectly acceptable TV Action series fights

    Which obviously isn't ideal for Iron Fist, but still isnt, like, Jr. Karate Hour

    The fighting is amateurish and the show looks cheap. Danny is deeply tedious so far. I don't know if we're supposed to immediately take against him or not, but who likes entitled, shoeless hippies that expect everyone to drop their shit and attend to their every whim?
