I wasn't going to be in a real rush to watch this, but with needing/wanting to also watch Ozark and Jack Ryan, plus a slew of new video games coming out (Spider-Man and Tomb Raider) this one might get backburnered for a while.

If it weren't for Henwick, this wouldn't be a must see for me. *smitten*

Re: Marvel's Iron Fist (Netflix) -- Season 2 Discussion Thread -- premieres 9/7/18

A little surprised this is the 1st Marvel Netflix season to actually cut their episode order from the standard 13 to 10.

Maybe the new showrunner figured out he didn't need the standard 13 to tell his season arc.

Anyways, I'm a little behind on this Marvel shows. I'm 6 or 7 into The Punisher, 5 into Luke Cage season 2 and haven't started Jessica Jones at all. I did already see the 1st season of Iron Fist, so maybe I'll try to power through a few this weekend.

I think 10 is better given the last few felt way too long to me.

It's weird to me that you're bouncing around shows like that though.

With so much when those other seasons aired, it was tough for me to stay dedicated on 1 Netflix show. I ended up stopping down on those for months.

But, I should probably stay focused on 1 Netflix show and not bounce around so much otherwise I'll fall even more behind with Fall coming up. Jack Ryan on Amazon had a really short 8 episode season and I finished that in 3 days.

Don't forget about Defenders as well. I'd avoid bouncing around and go in air date order just because of how related the shows are. There are connections formed in one show that carry into the others. You wouldn't get lost, but it might lose some resonance.

I did see The Defenders. I watched that within a few days after it dropped.

As for Iron Fist, I know the only big connection is Colleen and Misty's friendship.

Supposedly the finale in this is fantastic. I need to finish Luke Cage so I can start with this.

I have not watched Luke Cage or Jessica Jones seasons 2, so don't know if I need to watch those in order to get this season. The Defenders and Iron Fist S1 was the last ones I watched from this universe.

this can't be worse than the first season.

I need to finish Luke Cage S2, too.

Minor spoiler for Cage S2
Spoiler:
there is an IF/LC crossover in LC S2, but I haven't read anything that indicates it directly ties into IF S2.

Just finished Ozark and 5 eps in on Jack Ryan. So I'm kinda with you.

I went ahead and watched the 1st episode. I'll watch a few more this weekend or maybe more.

They are setting up some plan with Joy and Davos.

And there's a pretty badass fight scene with Colleen and a bunch of Chinese thugs.

and Alice Eve is also introduced and it appears that she has:

Spoiler:


some kind of multiple personality issues.

I'm up to three episodes and really liking it so far. Danny is better, the fights are better, the camera work is better, everything is better. That isn't say much since the first season was terrible but like I said I'm liking this season so far.

I wonder why they chose to introduce her in IF when she is actually DD's nemesis.

I guess it is best to watch JJ season 2 and Luke Cage season 2 first, before watching this.

Fight scenes are way better than season one. Not sure how I feel about the ending, but I think I can say without spoilers that at least it changes things up.
