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

Funny I actually just started to watch the series just yesterday and thought the same thing.

Watching anything with fights reminds you of that.  This show has done significant harm to the entire Marvel/Netflix brand.  If I'm Jon Bernthal, my management is on the phone with Marvel making sure my show is taken better care of.  This crap will be unacceptable a second time around.

So am I alone in having loved this series? You guys are harsh. I think the Meachums were incredibly interesting from episode 1 through episode 13. They were dynamic and mysterious and had real depth to them. That said, I also don't buy Joy's last scene. That's out of fucking nowhere. But up to that point, I think the Meachum family were the most interesting characters in ANY of the Netflix series that aren't Wilson Fisk.

Danny and Colleen had good chemistry. Colleen was a lot better than any damsel-in-distress type, and had some seriously great scenes.

I dunno. I am a big fan.

If I was grading the Netflix series at this point:

DD season 1: A
Jessica Jones: A
iron Fist: A-
DD season 2: B+
Luke Cage: C


EDIT: I see most of your bitching is about the fight scenes, and honestly? I don't give a flying fuck. On the list of things I'm looking for in a show "great fight scenes" wouldn't make the top 5. This show didn't have nearly the terrific action that DD1 or DD2 had, but I thought the writing and characters were strong. I'm on board.

I was expecting more from the fight choreography but ithe actually makes sense in context. It wasn't as flashy as we've come to expect, however, it's still clear Danny is a better fighter than DD. He only struggled with one goon and had competitive fights/wins against actual masters. And didn't need any body armor.

I thought it was a decent show.  Some people are being weirdly harsh.  Oh well.

Agreed

There's this which I think factors in somehow

Rotten Tomatoes has a Critic's score of 17%... and an Audience score of 88%. Interesting.

I watched it the whole way through and didn't feel burdened, so decent is a good word.  I'd like another season, though I'm afraid the backlash may have killed it.  The martial arts choreography was indeed subpar, I don't think anyone being honest with themselves would say otherwise, but it wasn't complete shit and that alone doesn't make or break a show imo.

If they don't give him another season, I wonder if they'll bring him and Colleen into the Luke Cage series.  I would not have a problem with that, honestly.

Or Marvel could do what they did for Thor Ragnarok and have Cage or some other popular Netflix hero heavily feature in the next season.  Again,... no problems with that.

They aren't gonna dump the character, no matter what. I also wouldn't mind them folding this and LC into one show. I think that'd help both characters.

Speaking of, I've seen people question whether Danny and Luke could become best friends. I think they absolutely could. Beside the obvious common ground of liking hip hop,  they're both all about social justice. Cage's practicality should also play well off Danny's naivete.

I think they'd be both a kickass and hilarious duo, yeah.  Tons of potential there.

Consolidating them into one series would not only improve the two [perceived] weakest shows of the Netflix world, but it would give GREAT development to a long-standing friendship and partnership. Id be on board.

I agree, it would be good for both characters.

It's easy to see that this has been the weakest of any MCU product thus far. And yet I found myself more engaged than with DD Season 1--which I struggled to finish. Not sure why.

The climax with the confrontation with Meachum was pretty bad.
