Have they cast Iron Fist yet? Seems like that's a decision they'd have made at this point since Daredevil, Luke Cage, and Jessica Jones are already accounted for.

I don't think they've made any announcements about Iron Fist, but given that they just announced who the showrunner Luke Cage is going to be, they still have plenty of time.

Sepinwall calls it one of the best superhero tv shows on the "air"

He also included this link of Deborah Ann Woll and her boyfriend at the LA premiere of the show, he's legally blind and dressed up as Murdock.

Since Netflix's model is all about adding new subs and retention, have you or anyone you know subbed to Netflix because of DD?

The Marvel deal pushed me over the edge on subscribing. Before that I was happy with Amazon Prime since its "free".

6 actually wraps up the first big chunk of the show quite nicely, with 7 acting more as an intermission before the rest starts, stop after 6 imo.

That's what I did. I'm going to finish it off tomorrow.

It almost strikes me as unfair to compare the fight scenes in this to any other network TV show. On Daredevil, it feels like every fight is a knock-down drag out brawl, while Shield or Arrow, the fights are much more stylized, with the heroes generally clowning mooks right, left and center.

Yeah. To counteract my criticism above, the Vanessa story was really great, especially that she the fact that she is as unmoral as he is, if not more so.

That was one of my favorite parts of the whole season.

- How did Fisk go from "I'm laying low and hiding in the shadows" to having half the FBI, the police force and the local SWAT teams totally on his side and in on his plan when he got sprung from the police transport on his way to jail?
I thought he just had Vanessa hire a bunch of mercenaries to spring him.

1x05: as meet cutes go attempting to kill Trish while mind controlled is up there for novelty. I really dug the flashback of Jessica pre-Kilgraeve that ended with her talking to Trish about the junkie friend/spy. It was on the nose, but in a good way.

Also, there is a lot of sex having going on, I mean, drat.

There wasn't really a noir aspect. It's straight-up a private detective story that happens to be set in the mainstream Marvel Universe, in the spirit of something like Robert B. Parker's Spenser novels, as if they were written by an incredibly distracted Harold Pinter.

The first story arc is pretty noir, with Jessica being sent to find a missing girl then stumbling into a larger conspiracy.

I honestly question if he ever was a cop. Detective-Too-Old-For-This-poo poo doesn't seem to recognize him at all, and the only other cop we even see him with was one of "His Boys".

The guy standing over his shoulder when he was trying to batter down Trish's door was one of his army buddies?

Cheo Hodari Coker won an NAACP Image award for his writing on Southland so we should be in good hands. I thought they handled equally sticky gender issues in JJ pretty well, so I'm really excited to see what they do here.

My only exposure to Cheo Hodari Coker is as a talking head on various VH1 documentaries and listicle type shows, so the idea of him being the show runner of Luke Cage is a weird one to me.

None of this is really surprising. Too bad DeKnight didn't come back, it sounds like with 14 producers, goddamn, the show loses its focus and won't be as tight.

A good chunk of those are people who just seem to automatically get Exec Producer credits on anything Marvel slaps their name on, like Stan Lee, Quesada, etc. Also remember that DeKnight himself was a last minute replacement for Drew Goddard (who is still listed as an EP), so if anything life is less chaotic than it was going into season one.

Yeah: https://variety.com/2015/digital/ne...ata-1201480234/

Basically Daredevil was ridiculously popular.

I don't disagree that Daredevil was popular, but those numbers aren't from Netflix, it's a third party company polling select Netflix subscribers, unless I misread something.

Honestly it still annoys me that Matt never even tried to tell Foggy what he overheard the bailiff say - there's just a vague "someone got to him" line.

Matt tried several times -- in the moment, then again after outside the courthouse -- but Foggy was too pissed at him to listen. It also probably wouldn't have mattered much to Foggy considering how mad he already was about everything else that had happened in the season.

For what it's worth Sepinwall said Cage falls into the same trap of trying to make a single 13 hour movie and feels flabby in the middle because of it. He still liked the show though.
