Unless it goes off track towards the end like Luke Cage did then I think I'll be ranking it third out of the four.Same.
Well, it did.
Man, the last three episodes were a trainwreck, especially the finale.
I am VERY disappointed with this show. Other than Daredevil, this was the Netflix show I was anticipating the most when the initial announcement was made. So much could have been done with this character, and it just wasn't. It's almost as if, for the first time, Marvel entrusted one of their properties to a creative team who just didn't fully understand or love the character. At least that's how it felt to me.
Parts of it were fun, and Colleen Wing saved the show from being a complete shitstorm. But Claire was apparently just shoehorned in "because", and then was given WAY too large a role for an out-of-work nurse. The Hand was nowhere near as scary or foreboding here as they were in Daredevil.
Danny Rand was pretty pathetic as a character, especially as a protagonist. I know it isn't all on Finn Jones; he's not a bad actor. But all you can do is all you can do, with the script and direction you are given.
Other than Colleen Wing, the most interesting character was Ward Meachum, IMO.
They missed real opportunities by NOT featuring the costume (the uniform of the Iron Fist) or showing Shou-Lao the dragon. Iron Fist
was easily the worst thing produced thus far by Marvel.
