Finished up Luke Cage over the weekend. Pretty good, not as good as Jessica Jones (tied with DD for my fav small screen super hero show), Colter was great as Cage. Diamond back was good, however, his "power suit" was cheesy as hell, especially the helmet, looked like Fireball from Running Man. 

Four Episodes into Iron Fist currently and am enjoying it.

Yeah, JJ is pretty close to DD for me.  Luke Cage was entertaining but didn't have the depth of the other two.  Same goes for Iron Fist, with the added point that I didn't find Iron Fist's fight scenes to be that compelling and their version of corporate law and office politics is about as shallow as possible.

I really liked IRON FIST. More than LUKE CAGE. I did love the backstory episode of Luke Cage though but the 2nd half felt forced. IRON FIST starts slow,gets good in the middle,sags a bit in an arc near the end then picks back up the last 2 episodes.

Yeah Cage did seem a bit bloated, they could have just had Cottonmouth/Shades and Mariah as the protagonists in the first season, and used Shades as a segway into Diamondback for season 2. I will say Misty and Claire def. made it easier to watch :)

Just finished Luke Cage. The Method Man part of ep 12 was by far my favorite in the series. I thought the first few eps were good, the middle was....eh, the end was good. Going to fire up Iron Fist soon, now, and try to get caught up before The Defenders releases.

I am so stoked for The Defenders, if Episode VIII wasn't coming it this year it would be my #1 hyped thing yet to release. I have loved all 4 of these series and I usually like the culminating multi-hero movies more than the individual focused ones. (You might think I'm little weird for this, hah)

My body is ready.

This sums up just about every good TV show these days, for me.

Started Iron Fist. Digging it so far. Hooked me faster than Luke Cage did.

Man, what a slog getting through Iron Fist. Hopefully season 2 is vastly better than this season was.

Well it's network TV, so it has that going against it too...

SHIELD isn't horrible and both Flash and Arrow had bright spots. I think they just mad a mistake in trying to translate this to a small screen.

Haven't watched Shield, however, I really like Flash and Arrow. I should've been a little more specific, small screen ABC. ABC seems to be a bit more conservative (and ratings demanding) with their programming. To really get a good Inhumans show a Netflix type of deal or movie prolly woulda been a better fit

INHUMANS is too big/weird for normal TV. It could have worked as a high budget HBO/Netflix series or a movie but as a low budget ABC show its gonna lose a lot.  Agents of Shield started slow,got sorta good then went bonkers (at least for me) in S3/4 so I gave up on it.
