Iron Fist was the worst of the 4, but it was decent enough to hold my attention.

Up to episode 11 in prep for Defenders.

Danny's just the worst. And not in a good way. He's po faced, mansplaining and condescending as he goes.

Some episodes seem to call him on this, others present him entirely straight faced. It's an inconsistency that indicates poor show running (they've fired them for season 2 I think). Claire's presence was breath of fresh air with energy and sense of fun. RD has done some serious heavy lifting.

I'm not sure if it's actor/writing/direction or a combination - but it just doesn't work. Veers from naivity to "So wise everyone should listen" without any structure or style. (Jack Sparrow calling him on his tantrum's during the fight was spot on target, but I'm not sure the show intended it to be)

It doesn't even have flaire as you add in completely lack luster fights (Jones said he saw Choreography 15 minutes before?!?!)

We're finally 11 episodes in starting to get hints of Danny's motivations and arc, but in general pretty much every other character is better written, acted and has a more compelling storyline (Joy has floundered a bit)

We also might finally be getting a decent central antagonist. (Gao/Harold haven't quite filled this role, and 'The Hand' is too nebulous). Every other series had great central villians as a counter point to the heroes - and Iron Fist has suffered for it's lack. (So many poor choices)

Still..only 2.5 hours to go by Friday

So finished this last night.

It's just...eurgh. So bad. So many messy disjointed plots - for each character

Danny has a new central motivation every few episodes and nearly completely ignores previous

Came back - important to make family connections
Went to Mental Hospital
Fought for Rand
Got to Rand, started some changes not many
Lost Rand - never followed up (Joy and Ward fight to get back in, no one got Danny abck barely followed up)
Kidnapped Goa (which someone we're later told got Hand out of Rand)
Then all about Bakuto for 2 episodes
Then all about Harold.

It's just a messy structure - has no one running it even seen a TV show before? The other netflix stuff massively padded their story line - but it was normally a single story line stretched out, rather than so many different ones like switching channels.

Synopsis
Season 2 furthers the transformation of Danny​, a character with a fish out of water coming of age story making his way in a harsh new world, battling to work out who he is. This season, Dann​y​ has promised that with Matt Murdock gone, he will step up and protect his city. ​But a sinister plot twist threatens his very identity ​and he must conquers his villains to protect the town and people he holds close to his heart.






I'm looking forward to this after Danny's last appearance. Marvel are apparently going all in this time and it's rumoured to be 10 episodes instead of the 13 (Punisher is taking the 13 episode order and Iron Fist is taking The Defender's 10 episode order). Plus Alice Eve is in the cast :datass:



Tweet thread of panel:

Panel summary (spoilers)
New showrunner is Raven Metzner (apparently he was in the audience for the Season 1 SDCC panel and is a big comicbook guy)
New fight coordinator Clayton Barber (Creed, Black Panther, Blade, Agents of SHIELD)
Fight choreography up.
Finn Jones doing a lot of his own stunts.
Daughters Of The Dragon arc.
Alice Eve is Typhoid Mary.
Danny Vs. Davos flashback wearing Iron Fist masks.
Steel Serpent confirmed.
Part of the season takes place in K'un L'un and they'll be more mythology.
Releasing September 7th.

I didn't mind season 1. It seemed to get a lot of hate, but I certainly preferred it to the travesty that was JJ S2. I also actually liked Danny. I found him quite amusing, and his constant referencing to Chi with people rolling their eyes made me smirk.

The only thing from that trailer that seems odd is that Danny is back to being Whiny/Angry Danny which doesn't sit with Chilled Danny from LC S2.

Iron First season one was very average so I am not expecting much from season two. I'll watch it though.

Trailer looks decent, but then it's easy enough to cut a solid trailer from a show which is otherwise crap.

If they've sorted out the fight sequences, reduced the whinge factor from Danny and given us more of a coherent story then I still have hopes for the immortal Iron Fist.
