    http://www.independent.co.uk/arts-en...-a7618121.html has some quotes from various reviews. Had a user comment after it that might get missed, "Saw the first 6 eps of Iron fist. Luke cage is way better."

    Why do I get the feeling Finn Jones is gonna fuck up Danny Rand?

    It sounds more like pacing problems. He can't fuck up the character if they don't have him do anything with it.

    A lot of these reviews (which is hilarious) are focused on his race. Which is retarded. Paraphrasing here but "this was marvel's chance to cast an asian for a main role but instead a white man gets the role in typical hollywood fashion"

    ugh

    After the initial outrage, how do people still not understand that Iron Fist being white is like the whole point of the character?

    Well he could've been any race so long as he was American, but I'll be super honest; him being white ain't gonna bug me.

    No, these are reviews after seeing the first 6 episodes which were released to various reviewers. Looking at them, they're all focused on the same thing: the lack of action and slow plot.

    Daredevil definitely set the bar pretty high.

    Jessica Jones was pretty slow the first 4 or so episodes and it eventually turned out pretty amazing. But I'm probably being bias since Kilgrave has been my favorite villain in the Netflix MCU.

    JJ hooked people pretty quick in that first episode with the elevator scene though. Even if the plot around that was slow that was a pretty big milestone in showing how dark the MCU could get.

    JJ became a slog. It could've done with 3+ fewer episodes to tighten the pacing.

    It was great, but it definitely benefited from all of it being released at once. David Tenant was fucking superb. Maybe I'll watch it again sometime, but from what I remembered it took a few eps to really get good. To me, anyways.

    Jessica Jones would have been garbage without David Tennant. He was fantastic.

    I've been watching. The writing isn't as terrible as the reviews state, but the pacing definitely is. It feels like the series is constantly 3-4 episodes behind where it should be in the progression of the plot.

    Spoiler: show
    We spend an entire episode in a mental asylum because he shows up and is like "I'm Danny Rand!" and no one believes him. Now to be fair that's completely realistic but we dwell there way too long for the purposes of storytelling.


    As far as whether or not they should have made him Asian, all the problems with the story would still be there if John Cho was the lead instead of Finn Jones. It's not the acting that's the issue, or the thematic elements (if you can get over a white guy knowing wushu).
