Yeah and watching Hogarth take care of the puppy instead of dealing with the cat is going to make her more likeable.

Someone assign animals to Cage and Murdock to complete the metaphore.

I was referring to her character in general.  In JJ she had an affair, treats her ex like shit and even frees Killgrave for her own gain.  I hated her in JJ.

Well that was anticlimactic.   Much worse than the final Cage fight against Copperhead. And Joy and the Mithcum were awful in general and all the way through.  And not enough Iron fist and only in one hand?
Honestly the best part of the show was Colleen Wing .  Also loved his fights with the drunken guy and Davos team up.

I thought it was ok. Nothing terribly special and I like iron fist. The new secondary cast except for Colleen were awful and seemed it didn't have a clear focus and thought it ended weak

Also The actual iron fist seemed bland too. I wanted to emit energy like in the comics like his hand was on fire...and no dragon? Bah! So is davos the steel serpent or not?

when did he do that punch at 2:05? Must have been not paying attention

Nah, nothing was worse than Diamondback.  That guy was the Jar Jar Binks of the MCU.  He damn near ruined Luke Cage.  I'll take boring old Mechums any day.

That was during the final episode when he was going after Mechum.  He was about to shoot Colleen and Danny blasted out the windows on the top floor.

For the Mechums, I wasn't quite satisfied with their status at the end.  I could see Ward reluctantly taking Rand again and Joy not wanting to have anything to do with Danny, but Ward being friendly and Joy wanting him dead?  Not so much.  I think they could have waited to get to that point later.

Totally agree on all of this

Final ep was terrible to be honest. Fight scenes aside I think it actually got weaker rather than stronger in the second half of the series and it was only "okay" in the first half of the series so that's not great.

Easily the weakest of the Marvel shows and I didn't care much for Cage at all.

Claire needs to die, she was annoying and forced as all fuck.


Cheers.

I'm only up to do 6 or 7, I don't even care anymore.  This show is one of the more mediocre shows on all of TV.  The choreography is literally a joke.  Mutant X had better fight scenes (I love Mutant X btw).  A show about Martial Arts can't have fight scenes this bad. 

Finn Jones can't can't act and the writing is shit.  So you have poor dialogue being delivered poorly.  Makes me wanna eat an elephant raw.  Just terrible.

Hopefully the poor reviews will force Marvel to step up its game

I was hoping for more insight into Madame Gao's character.  I didn't think she was part of the Hand when she appeared on Daredevil, and after watching this series I'm not sure if she is or isn't.  Bakuto said she was, but he could have been using her as a scapegoat in his attempt to trick Danny.  However, Gao portrays herself as part of the Hand to Harold Meecham, so that seems pretty straightforward.  She's been a mystery throughout these shows and I hope they give us some real backstory soon.

It was mentioned that there were multiple Hand clans and that Gao was heading a "rogue faction".  This would explain how she knew so much about Nobu and the Hand in Daredevil but still distanced herself form them and considered them a threat.

This show was ok. It seemed to showcase a lot of the old issues comic book adaptations had where they would add tons of drama and crap instead of focusing on the comic book shit everyone wants to see.

Watching the Badlands reminds me how much the fights in this let me down.
