Iron Fist needs a mask/costume ASAP. Action scenes suck because Finn Jones needs to be covered up. Colleen's scenes are so much better because she seems to have some experience so it's not as.much of an issue when it comes to fight choreography.

Yeah, a mask would allow them to use a stuntman on choreography instead of a slow, doughy nerd of an actor.

Watching episode 6 now. Its getting better but Bride of Nine Spiders was a let down... A hot hot let down.

I'm assuming she's slumming it for some reason.

I want to know if Finn was lazy or if the showrunner decided to keep him soft looking. Marvel is usually good at getting their people in fighting form.

I've always wonder about this corporate takeover moves. Can the board actually have secret meetings to remove people? I fee like with Danny's 51% and whatever % the Mitchums have they would basically be untouchable.

Probably not.  It's similar to when criminals get off on technicalities in movies.  It adds drama but isn't realistic.

Why did the drunken fighter sound Australian?
And the Bride of Nine Spiders was disappointing as fuck. I checked out the end credits hoping it wasn't supposed to be her.

I assume the guy playing the Drunken Master was an Aussie.  I liked him.  Not sure why his accent is an issue.

I am hoping future seasons will explain Bride of Nine Spider's role.

Wasn't an issue just found it odd.  I would have assumed they would have made him lose it for the show

They made a point of showing the Hand to be an international group so it made sense.  Somehow it fit Zhou's character.

Anyone else liking Claire the most in this series? There is some hand waving shenanigans with having her quickly become a more than competent fighter but I'm ok with it. I'm enjoying her sarcastic comments about all this crazy bullshit. The only part that's driving me nuts is how they acknowledge her other ties but she is not picking up her phone to get help. Even if she just mentioned she tried to get a hold of Matt and Jessica but couldn't would be fine.

I honestly hated every appearance she had in this series. I think the show would have been better without her.

I've always liked Claire and found her very likable in this series especially.

Claire went from likeable in Daredevil season 1 to annoying and pointless, which is where she stands currently. I hope her death is the reason the Defenders form.

I'd argue she played a larger role in Cage than in DD
