His name is Dany Radd after years in Hell he has returned come home with only one goal: to save my city. Now others have joined my crusade. To them, I'm Danny radd. To the rest of the City, He is someone else. He is something else.

That was a joke status I put up when I started watching Iron Fist , not knowing how Arrow like this show would end up being. In a way It is the weakest of the Defenders origins, but when you have a show that should be full of amazing fight scenes and they spend so much of the show talking about Business and Stocks.

It sets up The Defenders and shows just what they are going up against. Things like K'un-L'ug and Shou-Lao are touched upon but never really fleshed out.

My Only complaint is that you only see the Iron Fist outfit once for a few seconds in one of the later episodes.

Over all I did enjoy it

Dont say its not worth it, when you can sleep with no fear, that kind of time is worth any thing.- FFX

I'm only a couple episodes in so far (I don't binge shows), but I think the big problem is that the show was sold and billed as something it's not.

It's not a show about kung fu. It's not a show about magic. It's barely a show about super heroes. It's a show about isolation, and alienation, and loneliness. Look how beautifully empty the frame is when Danny's in a shot. He can't stand in a room with 20 other people without the camera positioning him all by himself. And I think a lot of the pushback against Danny's character is because the audience isn't really supposed to like him either. He doesn't fit in with anyone - although I'll admit, making your protagonist unlikable for the audience is always a huge risk, and it doesn't always pay off.

In fairness, Daredevil is already a show about magic and kung fu, so they had to do something really different with Iron Fist. I just don't think that this was what anybody expected, and it wasn't what a lot of people wanted.

I absolutely love it so far, though.

I'm glad to see I'm not in the minority here. Angela with the cat was stupid, Perfect Strangers-style sitcom dreck. Watching Pam try to continue Michael's speech was the only time I laughed the whole episode. 30 Rock > The Office last night.
