‘Iron Fist’ Episodes 1-4 Reviews: A Sluggish Start

the iron fist
As you are no doubt aware, Iron Fist is here! How’s your watch going, fellow bingers? Whether you’re one episode in or have already consumed the whole 13-episode meal, these reviews are for you, a space to talk about what just happened as we go on the journey of Danny Rand aka the Immortal Iron Fist. There’s been a lot to talk about the show leading up to release, from the reviews to the character’s function in modern pop culture.

The first six episodes, which I was lucky to preview, were a very, very slow start. Nevertheless, there are some interesting ideas at work in Iron Fist and they’re worth excavating, ideas like what’s after death and a nascent critique of unbridled capitalism. For all its flaws, the show can offer a deeper exploration of the nitty-gritty of streaming television, comic book adaptations, and old-fashioned storytelling (the good and the bad). Let’s dig in, shall we?

The reviews will be separated into “pods,” this first containing episodes 1-4, and the three more containing three episodes each. Click Next to start or click which episode review you’d like to read first:
