I was pretty pissed when I heard, reviewers were dissing the show because the lead was a white male, It’s kind of ridiculous to think our fight against racism has led us to racism, maybe that is just the horseshoe theory for you. I have watched 7 episodes of the show, the Iron fist has a slow start, just like all of Netflix’s Marvel Shows, I didn’t find it particularly slower or faster. From the outset the show seemed like a “regular TV show”, it didn’t have the grit or “realism ” of the rest of Netflix’s marvel shows, but that necessarily isn’t a bad thing. I just wanted to point that out. I image when you are working with a Kung Fu master billionaire who has descended from heaven it’s hard to achieve the same vibe as the rest of the shows. I got through the first six episodes neither feeling it was a great show or a horrible show, but the seventh episode was bullshit. The feeling that I came out with, after watching the episode was this bullshit, bullshit is bullshit. It was not like a bad plot twist, or anything of that sort, but it was that, I didn’t like the whole episode, it felt cheesy and crappy, having seen the seventh episode, I don’t feel like I’m going to watch the rest now, don’t get me wrong, I’ll watch it in the future but I just don’t know when I’ll get to it , probably before the Defenders come out.
The one gripe that stands out above all the rest, of which there are a lot, is where a plot point revolves around killing the bad guy, I do agree superheros shouldn’t be in the business of killing bad guys but in the situation that was in the episode, I didn’t feel there was a argument to be had there and I felt all this bullshit was bulshit and I had better things to do than hear this meaningless yapping.
In the second world war if the allies felt they had to fight the war without killing any enemy combatants, we wouldn’t have won the war, all the allied soldiers would have given their lives in vain and a massive amount of civilians would’ve been killed. All this hippie love crap should stop somewhere, people should start living in the real world where decisions have to be taken that wouldn’t need to taken in an Ideal world.
I know the Iron fist is in a make believe world but whatever world it’s in, this bullshit is bullshit.
