    Agreeing to have him killed?!? Really? That's the biggest jump in logic in this. I could maybe see it if Danny killed her dad, even in self-defense, but Ward did. Danny even surrendered himself to save her life. Gao and Davos being alive at the end was certainly enough to set up future villainy without this nonsense.
    I agree with that,

    it just wasn't a believable change of heart after she walked out on Harold because he was framing Danny.

    Pretty much.

    Watching John Wick made me appreciate (all over again) how shitty most action scenes are and how every action scene needs to be done the Jacky Chan way.

    The bar for this series was set low enough since most people don't know shit about IF and all I wanted was a guy with glowyhands to kick ass. Instead he can't use the glowyhands much and catches the hands against standard grunts. :/

    DD would kick Danny's ass.

    Meh, just finished this, kept hoping it was just going to be slow buildup and get better, but it just never did. This is easily at the bottom with Luke Cage for me. Kind of losing hope in Marvel's Netflix stuff at this point.

    No idea why they made a martial arts series so boring and full of business deals, meetings, etc.

    My god, Iron Fist is like if Mac from It's Always Sunny gets to choreograph a tv show. Even Arrow has better fight scenes, come on.

    I thought Iron Fist was better than Luke Cage.

    Daredevil was arrow level relationship wank that was saved by Vincent Donofrio, and Jessica Jones was hard carried by David Tennant.

    Yeah making him non-white would be like making Nick Fury black. Ohwait.

    Honestly they might have even considered it, but "the first outsider to become the Iron Fist" is pretty significant to his character.

    Was diggin thru the thread for a different comment but gave up, about the connection to Defenders being absent, was thinking...why didn't they work Stick into this? Would've been perfect.

    at least they should have shaved him and made him look like a monk, instead of some hippie hipster dude.
    plus he acted nothing like a monk, just a spoiled rich dude.

    Good news for the haters, after almost a week out, it's Netflix's 2nd most popular Marvel series so far! I'm guessing behind Daredevil. So Season 2 to fix things! And hopefully a year or so for Finn Jones to train how to fight like half decent.

    Even though I was not a huge fan of this first season, if this does get a second season I could see it potentially being a lot better.
