Mainly watching Seinfeld lately, though trying to sprinkle in some Girls and hopefully Taboo someday soon. Scared to watch Iron Fist, cos I have enough unfinished on my list.

I'm halfway through episode 4 and still indifferent. I'll keep watching it, but it has not hooked me like the other Marvel Netflix shows did.

The kungfu is terrible. I mean especially considering this is supposed to be his superpower.

Imho he is a Yoga Instructor claiming to be a Kungfu master. And the story is contrived...

It gets a bit better after episode 6...

I could never see the appeal or get into the DareDevil/Jessica/Luke shows after giving them a try.
They seem to be highly praised and generally liked by the majority though.
With that in mind I've been hearing nothing but negativity surrounding this Iron Fist thing, going so far as to call it a Netflix failure, has <20% score on rotten tomatoes etc.

I did intend to eventually try to get through those other Marvel shows at some point maybe when my current schedule is on break and I have nothing else to watch. Think I might give this one a pass however if this is the general consensus I'm seeing.

4 episodes into Iron Fist and I'm struggling to continue. It's just not a good show.

Ishan was right that it seems to start to get better in episode 6. That's far too long in a series to get beyond a rocky start.

Episodes 6 - 7 is usually the point where the Marvel shows have overstayed their welcome.

On a side note: I wonder if Luke Cage and Iron Fist will get a second season, or if they'll jump directly to Heroes for Hire after The Defenders.

My guess is that they go straight to The Defenders.

New episodes of Mystery Science Theater 3000 coming to Netflix April 14!

Hmm, felt like I had this musical Flash episode built up way too much and had too high expectations.
It was 'alright'. Nothing really stuck with me though, and nothing was memorable in my opinion. (Still have Stein singing Tallyman stuck in my head from last week's Legends moreso than I can remember any of these)
Will have to listen through them/watch it again, perhaps.

I guess Buffy's Once more with feeling has just spoiled me and ruined expectations going forward since nothing can hope to compare or come close to that level of perfection anymore =(

Mystery science theatre is one of those things that might be a regional or generational gap for me. I've only really heard about it in forums and reddit etc. Supposedly it's the best thing since sliced bread though. Perhaps I'll also check that out come April.

I knew nothing about it and turned it off halfway through. I loved the Musicals in Psych and i really enjoyed Galavant... this was just trash and a waste of time.

Its definitely regional, i never heard of it even existing. As far as i can tell it was a thing Comedy central ran in the 90ties.

The Defenders is already done filming. I imagine we'll get a Season 2 for both characters. Although if one gets cut it would probably be Iron Fist. I think The Defenders will be a deciding factor in new seasons for these characters though. If they do well in The Defenders I could see their popularity and interest for them increasing.

And debuting in the Summer, probably July/August. Punisher is rumored to be in the Fall, so probably in September so it doesn't clash with Stranger Things in October.

I'm enjoying Iron Fist more than most of the critics. I'm only on episode 11 so it could have a bad ending, but I actually like the story so far. It has had some good twists and turns these last few episodes.
