    Luke Cage is alright, but IF was pretty dire imo.

    Iron Fist started off OK. I enjoyed the first four or five episodes. And then it just took a dive into the world of crap writing and didn't resurface... The only Marvel series of any note has been Daredevil so I'm really hoping Punisher at the very least rivals it. It should (should!!) be much better as Punisher is an action man that doesn't spend his time pondering how hard the world is and goes out and kills the bad guys.

    My only concern is that it's not really a spin on Garth Ennis' Punisher which as far as I'm concerned was just phenomenal and would translate well to the small screen. Suppose, we'll just have to wait and see how it goes!

    I agree, Ennis really nailed the Punisher for mature audiences. I think any of Ennis's stuff (Crossed, The Boys etc) would be awesome and perfect for TV. It might be a bit too hardcore for most production companies to want to tackle. I wish one would, though :(

    I'm definitely looking forward to this show and hope it's better than the other Marvel shows which mostly tanked half way through imo (DD not included, I loved it).

    I am the immortal Iron Fist and being the immortal Iron Fist I think I am looking forward to this show. Hopefully when I the immortal Iron Fist sits down to watch with the wife of I the Immortal Iron Fist then she will like it too. Did I mention I am the immortal Iron Fist?

    No, I'm the immortal Iron Fist, the sworn protector of K'un-Lun, from the long line of Iron Fists.

    Looking forward to this and really hope it is done the same way as DD.

    Daredevil has set such a precedent that I thought Luke Cage and Iron Fist were complete pants. Jessica Jones came close but was very slow to follow.

    Reviews so far are that this is 'the best' Marvel show on Netflix that they've done. Not hard considering the last one was Iron Fist (excluding Defenders)

    Is this in 4k? My TV has had to go in for a bloody repair so if it’s 4k I’ll have to wait. Grrrrr.

    It's better than standard 4K ;) It's rocking Dolby Vision. It looks stunning.

    Watched the first two episodes - so far its way way better than the other Marvel shows they've done.
