Don't mess with the Law if you don't have an Ace up your sleeve.
I watched the whole series. I enjoyed it. The only thing I didn't like plotwise is Danny becoming so damn “confused“ mid season. I actually really liked the naive Danny from the first half of the season.
Another thing that bothered me from the beginning to the end and I can't really forgive is the low quality fighting choreography. Besides 1 or maximum 2 fights it was really bad. Sadly my expectations were really high since Daredevils was really good and due to the martial arts setting I expected it to be far better. It was way too boring and had waaaaay too many cuts.
Rethinking it there was also a third thing that I was disappointed of: the soundtrack. But I presume this is just because of me comparing it with Luke Cage.
This series is a 7/10 for me.
Speaking of music that reminds me...
Maybe they just had electricity and Wi-Fi - they're no savages.
Lol, maybe you all are right. Everything described about the place just made it seem like it was running without modern conveniences. Seeing as how though the city was built around a spaceship maybe they've adapted some of that technology. Plus, they've had some contact with the modern world a couple of times I assume so who knows what they've learned.
Wow, we can't truthfully tell from his drunken acting how he would have fared overall in Danny Rand's place but, hell, at this point I would be fine trying anyone else if we could go back in time. Lewis Tan left a far better impression on me in the short time he was given on the show. In Finn Jones's defense though he had the pressure of carrying most of the show on his back and more screentime to be criticized on so, again, can't really tell if Lewis Tan would've been a better lead. Still, what is clear to me at this point is based off of Finn Jones's performance and portrayal that he was not the right choice.
Finished watching Iron Fist.
I guess I enjoyed it, for what it was ... and that's an important distinction, I think. This is set in New York, I wasn't expecting him to hang around Chinatown all throughout, but while Daredevil showed us the underground, Luke Cage the street life, each with its own identity, this one on the other hand had none, at least not the one I was wanted.
I was expecting more martial arts. Danny barely even uses that damned iron fist of his. I certainly understand the rotten tomatoes score. It's based on a thumbs up or down system, and I certainly wouldn't recommend this to anyone even though I found good things in it.
I'm really interested in seeing The Defenders now. Finn Jones was not good as Danny Rand. At times it was the writing, and other times it was his acting - his monotome voice, especially. And so I'm curious if he'll be any better in The Defenders.
But good lord the man is a buffoon. I get he's been living in a monastery and he may not realize people aren't familiar with the supernatural as he is, but so many headaches could've been avoided if he just learned how to explain things better. "Your favorite color is emerald! Only Danny Rand would know that!"
