Did You Know?


Big Al's philosophy about farming being "The Worst Mistake in the History of the Human Race" is not the ranting of the deranged mind of a homeless man. It actually comes from a 1987 paper of the same name by noted American scientist Jared Diamond, and makes the case that modern ills such as pandemics, war, sexism, and social stratification, among other things, can all be traced back to humanity's adoption of agriculture.

The practice swords used for the martial art known as Kendo are shown in Colleen Wing's dojo (gym). They are called "shinai" and are very flexible, with a bamboo core. When new - before use - and for shipping, a shinai is wrapped with bands. The shinai shown in the show still have those bands in place. Also, the martial (colored) belts closing the kimonos of Colleen's pupils are badly done, like a true beginner would. See more »

Easily one of the worst pilots ever made, and the absolute worse of the Marvel Netflix shows
8 August 2018 | by hitdoctor24See all my reviews

The acting is terrible. The writing is terrible. The pacing is terrible. Everything about the Iron Fist pilot (and essentially the whole first season, unfortunately) is just plain bad. I went into this show knowing it got poor reviews and began watching it with the mindset of "maybe I'll enjoy it since I'm going in with zero expectations." But nope. This episode is painful to watch, and sets the stage for all the agony and misery you will most definitely experience if you, for whatever reason, decide to watch beyond the pilot.

Danny Rand is bland. He's foolish. He's naive. He's impressionable. He's soft. He's indecisive. He's rash. He's hotheaded. He's dramatic. He's temperamental. He possesses just about every single trait the protagonist of your show should NOT have. The supporting cast is very weak as well. Only watch this show if you absolutely have to see how it stacks up with Netflix's other Marvel shows. Spoiler alert: it pales in comparison to all of them, even the inconsistent and slow paced Luke Cage. If you do force yourself to sit through all 13 episodes like I did, you will grow to hate yourself and potentially fall into a deep dark pit of despair that can only be escaped with a 62-hour marathon of Breaking Bad.

Save yourself the horrors of this pitiful tv show. If you value your sanity, STAY AWAY. It really is as bad as you've heard.
