How do u like it?

I am six episodes in and...

have enjoyed it. No idea why it has gotten such bad reviews. It isnt some amazing show or anything, but id say its been better then DD season 2 and Luke Cage so far. That said i was super dissapointed with Luke Cage so you might feel differently. I just found it super slow and by the midpoint in the season i was more watching it to finish it then i was watchin because i enjoyed.

Like i said im only about half way through, but id say its worth a watch.
I haven't seen it yet but my buddy binge watched it.

He said it was okay but the character was a huge vajayjay.
My wife and I watched the first three episodes

It's not great but I don't understand the terrible reviews. It is better than Jessica Jones IMO.
I didn't care for it. Something about the main character and how slow  
BLUATHRT : 3/20/2017 12:07 pm : link
he moves, etc made the show less "believable" for me.
I haven't gotten to it yet but should watch it soon  
Bill L : 3/20/2017 12:13 pm : link
but since Luke Cage is probably my favorite, I might be in the oddball "nay" crowd here.
It's alright so far.

^^This.. I have been binge watching it and I am enjoying it. It's not the greatest show I've ever seen but entertaining and definitely better than Luke Cage on par with Dare Devil or me. I'm getting toward the end of the show and it's gotten pretty good. I'll admit there were some fight scenes in the later episodes that were kinda ridiculous.
I'm surprisingly loving Jessica Jones right now (onto episode 11)

and just started watching Iron Fist this morning. I'm done with both Daredevil seasons.

I guess I'll need to catch up on Luke Cage after that :)
I actually really liked Jessica Jones.

David Tennant was awesome as the villain. Luke Cage was good, but I was expecting it to be a little better.

It's interesting how the Netflix marvel villains are far more fascinating than the ones in the marvel movies. It is probably because they have more time to delve into the villains' back stories
I think Daredevil is my favorite

I've never been a comic book guy but really liked that on Netflix. I've enjoyed them all honestly but Jessica Jones was the toughest for me to get through.

On a separate note, I really enjoy Gotham (which was also on Netflix)...probably more than any of the Marvel shows, and I feel like that's one that most people would laugh at me for haha
Oh and to the point of the thread  
kelsto811 : 3/20/2017 1:00 pm : link
I am 7 episodes in to Iron Fist and am definitely enjoying it. Had no knowledge of the character or backstory prior to watching this so I went in blind.

Im looking forward to the Punisher show. I liked his storyline the best out of all the Netflix Marvel ones so far.
I have enjoyed all of the Netflix Marvel shows so far  
JerryNYG : 3/20/2017 1:17 pm : link
I think Jessica Jones might be my favorite with Daredevil a close second, Luke Cage and Iron Fist both a notch below that.

I don't get the bad reviews either. It is not the best show ever but it is far from terrible.
Ranking based on my preference  
Sly Guy : 3/20/2017 1:29 pm : link
1. Daredevil
2. Jessica Jones
3. Luke Cage
4. Iron Fist

I like the first three. I'm 2 episodes into Iron Fist and I can see why the critics panned it. I just can't get into the storyline and the character development is poor. The acting isn't great either.
Id prolly go...  
Italianju : 3/20/2017 2:16 pm : link
DD
JJ
Iron Fist
Luke Cage

and i def think the reason the marvel netflix Villains are so much better is they get more screen time to develop them. They can actually get a back story that somewhat explains why they are doing what they are doing.
Just finished.

Not bad. Of course knowing that if you ever try and use King Fu in a real real fight you are going to wind up in the hospital hurts it a bit for me.

Getting tired of the "Pacifict hero" who will beat the crap out of someone but won't kill them. But it did have the old school Sat morning kick flick feel which is fine if I liked DareDevil the best. The rest all have been ok.

The Punisher should be great
I actually enjoyed JJ  
family progtitioner : 3/20/2017 4:00 pm : link
The most so far. I found the villain, killgrave, to be absolutely terrifying. Great portrayal by that actor.
I thought it was awful  
RasputinPrime : 3/20/2017 9:39 pm : link
and the turd of an ending was the acid on the cake.

I never cared about Danny or any of the Meachems. Worse, i'm now concerned about the Defenders since this is likely going to lead-in to that series. I can't remember watching a single fight sequence and being impressed the way I was by some of the sequences in the other series. I think their choices of actors should have started with who could convincingly kick series chi instead of grabbing actors with some name recognition who had to learn to fight.

Iron Fist should have been amazing. If they could make a Dr. Strange movie that most people loved they have no excuses for this show.
maybe

they will have Shang Chi master of kung fu at some point.

A few episodes left  
AnyoneButPhilly : 3/21/2017 9:51 am : link
Its ok. Definitely better than the reviews its getting. I think its missing a great villian like we saw in Daredevil, Jessica Jones, and Luke Cage but that might all change in the closing episodes. I think its hard to make a martial arts movie without it feeling like every martial arts movie. While I do enjoy it, I think it will be a very forgettable movie
I hope  
spike : 3/21/2017 11:57 am : link
White Tiger will make a cameo
I think I'm on episode 7 or 8...  
T-Bone : 3/21/2017 12:34 pm : link
It's ok. Maybe a B- grade from me. Iron Fist was one of my favorite Marvel characters back when I used to collect comics (still have two huge vats filled to the top of most of my old ones) so I already knew most of the backstory and it's because of that it lost a few points with me because I would've really liked to see them go more into his training (although maybe they show more of it in some of the later episodes).

My list would be:

DD
Luke Cage (looking forward to Power Man and Iron Fist hooking up hopefully in the future)
Iron Fist

I haven't watched Jessica Jones yet but have been hearing mostly good things about it so I'm going to watch it after I'm done with Iron Fist. I don't know a thing about her though. After Jones, I'm going to binge watch Gotham.
Have only watched one episode  
jpennyva : 3/21/2017 8:18 pm : link
It's OK, though not being a comic reader, I don't know what I should have expected. My husband and I will no doubt watch the entire series, but I was not drawn in as much in the first episode as I was with the other Netflix-Marvel series. I'd say my order of enjoyment has been Luke Cage, Jessica Jones (which was the first series I watched) followed by Daredevil. There were elements in the first episode that were frustrating and sometimes I just wanted to shake Danny and scream "What the f*** is wrong with you!" How could he really not understand others' reactions to him? But we'll see how it unfolds.

Now The Defenders is something I am REALLY looking forward to later this year!
