    Same here. Average acting, bad action, by far the worse of the Netflix shows. Danny Rand is not a likable character. I'll stick it out (due to my inner nerd), but it's not been enjoyable.

    Watch the first episode. I liked the slow burn in the beginning.

    I saw a an ig post citing Finn that claimed he trained up to 4 hours a day martial arts and weight training. He purposely wanted to look like this. That's right, Finn Jones is so fucking DYEL that he had to have a grueling training regiment just to get the skinny stoner look.

    I guess Danny and Daredvil will have a meet up and through Claire get to Cage who gets to Jessica by promising her more BBC action

    At least Joy's and Colleen's actresses were nice to look at.

    I'm three episodes in and I can't get over the fact that this hipster stoner that has been doing wushu in Kunlun his his whole life all of a sudden thinks he is capable of running a billion dollar enterprise. Take the money and move on dumb fuck.

    Also the broad playing that douchey businessman's sister CANNOT ACT.

    I'll see if I can complete this or give up like with Luke Cage.

    I like how he gets tied to the bed for fighting then they just walk away with the door opened to the rest of the patients. He gets set free with no repercussions.

    Guess I'm in the minority, I'm on episode 5 and am enjoying it. Nowhere near as bad as reviews made it out to be.

    LOL you kidding? She's not the only one.

    Basically the only good acting came from the guests Carrie Ann Moss and Rosario Dawson. When they aren't there it feels like a chore to watch.

    I recently watched a review for this show that was more entertaining than the actual show. One of the reviewers even said that you could watch the first episode, then the last episode, and not miss a single worthwhile thing from in between the two.

    It was the only way to hide Finn's lack of athleticism and preparation.

    I read that there was a typo in Finn's contract so instead of practicing martial arts he was painting portraits of marriage counselors.

    I'm interested in good reasons why Iron Fist should have cast an Asian as Iron Fist. That link wasn't really relevant to the show. He wasn't a white savior figure saving people of color from some plight. The people of K'un-Lun didn't have any plight, and Danny abandoned his post to protect them anyways. The show basically became about him trying to find out who was responsible for the plane crash from 15 years ago. I guess you need an Asian for that?

    I don't blindly say, "nuh uh", but if you don't have a relevant point, then I guess we are done.

    I don't get why Ward was so miserable. His father was the one who was imprisoned, couldn't leave, was kept in line by the Hand, and had to keep his life a secret from everyone aside from his son and some goons while Ward could go on vacations, slay bitches from around the globe, party it up, take up hobbies, or do whatever. Harold couldn't even talk to his daughter or really even go outside, but he seemed far more happy than Ward, who was free to enjoy life if he chose.

    People get too butthurt about this topic, but Iron Fist is a comic book character who probably should have been asian in the first place. Everything from his training to his costume to his fighting style attests to that, but the social climate when his character was created was dominated by white characters. Minority characters were very few and far between. A lot of people were saying that the TV show was a chance to "make it right." I don't think it's a big deal, but I think the people who are getting so upset about other people getting upset are the most ridiculous for being so unaware of the social context of the past.

    Think of it this way, imagine Iron Fist had originally been a white character who was raised by a mystical tribe in africa. Imagine there being a TV show about that in the modern day and how awkward it would be to see a white guy acting like Black Panther.
