I'm feeling better with each episode.
Yeah this is the reverse Luke Cage.
SO MAYBE THEY WOULDVE HAD A GREAT SHOW IF THEY MADE A HEROES FOR HIRE SHOW INSTEAD.
Now on ep6...directed by RZA. Thats interesting.
Could you expand on this a bit more? Not quite sure how to interpret.
Luke Cage got worse and this got better. I didn't mean any more than that.
Gotcha. I just didn't remember your feelings on LC.
Episode 6 was annoying. Bride of the Nine Spiders was butchered. They turned her into Joel Schumacher's Poison Ivy.

/ Film Diary
I've been alternating episodes between this and Into the Badlands. It really highlights how badly the fight scenes in this is filmed. Iron Fist cuts between shots with every move and sets most of the fights in dimly lit indoor sets that all look alike.
It's a really poor decision to make the fights in this gritty and close quarters like Daredevil. They should've differentiated them by going for a high-wire wuxia style. I thought that's where they're gonna go with it when they showed Danny jumping over the taxi. But nope.
Three episodes in. This is not nearly as bad as it has been made out to be, but it's still the most unremarkable Netflix Marvel so far. I think part of what makes it kind of lame is that the main plot has been recently seen as a soap opera version in Arrow. I do like Jones as Rand, though. He's a lot better than the Luke Cage dude.
Four episodes in, and this feels pretty accurate. Still digging it, and still don't feel it's even remotely as bad as its reputation, but it does feel like a noticeable step down from the other Netflix outings so far.
This... explains... a lot.
Quoting Finn Jones
Yeah, that is NOT how its supposed to be done. That being said, taking that into consideration makes me more respectful of what Jones did in those scenes. True, they reek of "taught an actor some moves instead of a martial artist some acting", but it was far from the worst examples of that I've seen.
Haven't seen the show, but this is awful:
So I've reached the point where Rosario Dawson finally makes her appearance in this show, and all was well with the world again.
