All of Marvel's Netflix shows are problematic. Save for the first season of Daredevil, all the other shows had several issues that make them tedious to watch. Iron first is arguably the worst one, I find it miraculous that I was able to watch all 13 episodes.
First off, this is not about whitewashing. As someone who always prefers it when producers stick to comic book canon, I would hate it if they made Danny Rand Asian. What's glaring at first is the comical acting. A lot of these actors simply cannot act very well, the bad acting is jarring and it prevents one from being truly immersed in this world that they created. Or maybe these characters are horribly written to begin with, their actions and decisions do not make sense, and any actor would be hard pressed to make them believable. The plot absolutely makes no sense. not only that, it also lacked direction. there's no cohesion at all, and it seems as if they writers didn't know which direction to take. there are a lot of subplots as well that just serve to confound the entire story without contributing much to it. It had potential, but the finished product is simply horrible. Anyone who is not a blind Marvel fanatic can clearly see this show for what it is.
