Reposting from another thread but I just finished it. I think the reviews were too harsh. I thought it was mediocre, just a little bit below Luke Cage. If I'm generous, I could say I enjoyed them about the same. It had its fair share of boring episodes though. Even Rosario Dawson looked like she was about to fall asleep. I didn't think Finn Jones was bad at all, but Jessica Henwick and Carrie Anne Moss saved it. And I will say that Harold, while nowhere near the league of Kingpin, Purple Man or Cottonmouth, was a better villain than Diamondback.

Iron Fist needed a standout moment, a cool badass scene or set piece that we could at least say "damn that was impressive." It needed its own version of the Hallway fight from DD s1 or the stairway fight in s2 or HECK, even the warehouse fight from Luke Cage. We needed that moment where our protagonist just goes HAM and we see what he is truly capable of. We did not get that.

And to think Gareth Evans almost got his hands on Iron Fist.

The show really needed to establish Iron Fist as a fighter, that can take out Daredevil in a one on one fight. It did not do that. In fact, I think it did the opposite.

Before this, I was actually looking forward to hopefully seeing DD and IF go toe to toe with each other in Defenders as even matched martial artists. Now? Oh please. Cox's DD would mop the floor with him, would barely be a fight.

I don't think it did either. The closest we got was probably the fight with Davos

FWIW the reviewers only got the first 5 episodes.

Sad to hear this didn't happen. I'm only on episode 6 but I thought the hallway hatchet fight was going to be the moment. I was expecting Raid level awesome but nope.

You do have a couple of above average fight sequences to look forward to, but nothing that is going to WOW you.

Far too much complaining. I haven't seen all the episodes yet but so far this series is light-years better than Jessica Jones.

Jessica Jones was a poorly written mess. This series is far more complex. Definitely not for the ADD generation, however. I guess the slower, smarter burn is what is generating most of the juvenile complaints.

If I remember them correctly episodes 3, 4, 10, 11 and 12 were the top tier.

The rest were mediocre to fairly lame. I like the show overall. It's not horrible. But it's not amazing either.

Agreed. Not on the JJ part, because JJ was just awesome. But I agree that for a generation with the attenion span of a toddler it might have lacked punchy stuff so much seemingly want and as I can see from many comments here, a lot of the more complex stuff went completely over some commenter's heads. A pity really, because the show was great and is definatly underappreciated

Nice that we attack the fans now, in order to defend the show. The lack of punchy stuff isn't the only problem with the show.

sorry, not good enough punch-kicky stuff and no costume. also booooring with all that grown-up talking from everyone not Danny, who's stupid.

that's the criticism of the show in a nutshell
I'm not saying it didn't have it's problems. but those points are the ones, people on this boards are get upset about

I was thinking this would be able to match Into the Badlands in its action scenes. Unfortunate that it's not even really at DD-levels. Not familiar with IF and his mythos, but am a big fan of martial arts shows so this kinda failing at is really disappointing to hear.

I'll start it soon, but with incredibly tempered expectations.

I'm a fan of the show, but you can't just handwave criticism of the show as childish tantrums.

I'd probably agree with this. I wouldn't necessarily say the others were mediocre or lame. 6-8 were pretty good too
