    I liked cottonmouth and the music of Luke Cage, the rest was pretty below par. Iron Fist is worse IMO, but I muscled through it so I can enjoy the defender series

    I just meant from a choreography standpoint. I think that could be one explanation for why the action scenes seem slow and clunky at times.

    It was just bad. If any show should be extremely impressive on martial arts choreography, it should be Iron Fist because he is supposed to be the most skilled of them all. Not only should very few people even be able to fight against him, but his technique, speed, and fighter intelligence should be unmatched. Unfortunately, Daredevil has better fight sequences in a dozen places than any fight scene in this series which is THE biggest problem this show had but not it's only one.

    Its not a bad series, had some unique twists that I didnt see coming. I liked it and would watch it again before I ever watched a second of Luke Cage. Dare Devil set really high expectations for these series, while Iron Fist wasnt a home run (the writing was not great at all) it was a good watch.

    Man, seems to be a lot of people on youtube who thought this series was good. Maybe I have been overly critical. To each their own I guess.
