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

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.
Daredevil really went above and beyond compared to this, which had to be anything but Daredevil. The show isn't bad, but at the same time, it's just not as epic, or intriguing. Could be I'm a huge Daredevil fan (have been since I was 10), could be Vincent D'Onofrio as an amazing villain, but Iron Fist is just kind of dry in comparison.

I love the show! I also started watching because of my love of Buffy/Angel. I think it's smart enough and tongue and cheek enough to not be associated with the CSI craze. I haven't watched last night yet....
