Daredevil is the best by a longshot! Iron Fist second. I got bored from the start with Luke Cage. Forgot to finish it. Jessica Jones made me creeped out and couldn't get through it putting it in last place. Defenders will be interesting, but bring me Daredevil season 3 and DVD releases.

Yeah, something is going on with Marvel Television's home releases. Agents of SHIELD season 3 and Agent Carter season 2 are almost half a year overdue, and Jessica Jones should be out by now too.

Curiously, they're all available outside of the US. Unfortunately they're wicked expensive and have ugly emblems on the spines, so they'd look weird on my MCU shelf. So I'm holding out.

I am holding out too. I wanted a DVD,but just the Blu-Ray is out there. I found only about five copies around early December at Wal-Mart for $40. With 13 episodes, its $3.25 USD per episode. I am tempted to go an alternate route. Region 4s or an all region are out there, as in DVD format? There has to be a licensing issue. You wouldn't know what would the reasoning would you?

About to start episode 6,TMNT reference,huh?

Agreed on the choreographed fights not being to the level of Daredevil and this is more martial arts. I had expectation in that. The brief fight in the elevator was great though!

7 episodes in. I like Iron Fist better than Luke Cage and Jessica Jones.

6 was the highlight. Unfortunately episode 8 is where they started purposefully dragging their feet, so as to fulfill their 13 episode quota.

The one thing that bothers me was
Spoiler:
when Ward pushed Iron Fist through a window and wakes up in the office and is okay with it. He does immediately realize the despite to ride of him to maintain control of the company. Was it a thought, not to give himself a way he embraced the older Meachum?

Yeah, I don't get the complaints about the fights. They are miles above Jessica Jones.

That they are. But Jessica is not a martial artist, Danny is supposed to be.

If you ask me, the main difference between the fights in Daredevil vs Iron fist is...

Spoiler:
the fact that DD wears a mask, so it's way easier to sub in the stunt man for Charlie Cox. Another reason they need to ditch the Nolanisms and just bust out the green and yellow pajamas. I thought the dude in the 1940's footage looked good enough.

So in the comics Ward is the much younger brother of Harold and not the son. The way it was presented I thought Joy was Iron Fist' girlfriend in the comics. Wing is. Is Joy supposed to be made news and not Iron Fist romantic interest? Just trying to connect comic from T.V.

Finally getting started, finishing up Episode 1.

Enjoying it so far, although comparisons to Arrow Season 1 and Batman Begins are inescapable.

"WHERE DID YOU GO?"

The handprint scene was awesome.

Dammit, Danny, don't tell the doctor about an other-dimensional city and magical warriors!

Chill, yo, no one cares for a running commentary. Do it in one post or don't do it at all.

Up to the end of 11. Whoa. Major Winter Soldier-level revelations. And double whoa with Beacham.

And that Ward actor is impossibly entertaining to watch. Fantastic. Doesn't he kind of seem like Keanu Reeves mixed with young Al Pacino... by way of Justin Long?

Yeah, Ward is cool. It may not be the best show of the four overall, but I think it has the best and most interesting supporting cast.

No costume? Not even Daredevil move,putting it on to end the season? Surprising move,making a plain clothes Iron Fist.

Also,am I the only one who thought Danny and Joy and Coleen and Bakuto would have made for better couples?

It also seems they every single character is bad in one way or another aside from plain clothes Iron Fist. Edit:Well, aside from him the nurse played by Dawson is completely clean.

They've said he won't even get the costume until somewhere near/at the end of Defenders.
