Despite the criticism of Danny Rand being played by a Caucasian actor, the Danny Rand in the comics was indeed Caucasian with blonde hair and green eyes. Even so, the Iron Fist comics were inspired by Kung Fu (1972), wherein a white actor played an Asian character. See more »

I've been doing this for 15 years.
But not against the Hand.
I know. You're right. The Hand was a myth drummed into me. I've never met them face-to-face.
So, you're saying I have more experience fighting the Hand than you do?
Well, if you wanna get technical about it...

I'm a long-time Defenders fan. I started watching the first episode with my hopes up. There was a lot of negative press before its release, but I wanted to give it a fair shot with an open mind.
Six episodes in, I'm done. I can't force myself to watch anymore. The show is just so boring, with such awful pacing and bland, often pointless dialogue that I found myself rolling my eyes every few minutes. The fight scenes are mostly awkward and obviously scripted, and as a martial artist myself, they make me cringe. Maybe it's a blessing in disguise that there are so few of them?
This is not the Iron Fist I know. Honestly, the more I watched, the more I realized it seems like a bad rehashing of Daredevil season 1. I love Daredevil season 1, but I don't need to see it done again, with a character that the show does not allow me to connect with or like.
I'm sorry, but this is just awful.
