Rand commits numerous state level as well as federal offenses, including battery, breaking & entering, theft,kidnapping and passport fraud. Yet by the last episode, he is stated to "only" be facing assault charges against the DEA agents who came to raid Colleen Wing's studio.

I will say that the cast is reasonably good. It is good to see familiar faces from other Netflix Marvel shows.
I noticed people bashing the lead because he is white. Iron Fist was white so I do not understand that position. To expect the lead to be Asian simply because there is martial arts involved is racist in itself. Please also understand that his whiteness is actually important to the story. It leads to the two worlds fish out of water uneasiness that the main brings.
My only real complaint with this is some of the fighting scenes so far have been very clunky. You can see the fighting technique weaknesses and the lack of fluidity.
So far the story has been good. The characters have been likable and as long as it does not spiral over the next 7 episodes. I would say it is just about on par with Luke and Jessica.
