Iron Fisty 1.1.1

This is it, the big pay off. This is what everything has been building to... uh?

In this last set of episodes... I have trouble saying who the big menace of the season is. The series is "how about this guy? No? Here, try this guy". Nothing feels big, even the personal emotional investment isn't really there, and the series itself doesn't know what to do with itself.

This extends to the characters, who aren't really anything either. Nothing amazing happens, and you can spot all the character turns before they happen, and really... even Danny Rand, the big hero, is a large lump of sod all.

That said Gao continues to impress, and she should get her own series... although the writers will then make everything terrible...

So that was Iron Fist, and it isn't going to break records.

Not even with his fists? While the records are on cinder blocks? Not even then?
It's not great and I hope the double act of Iron Fist and Luke Cage will revitalise and/or redeem this character.
