That's some lovely title design.

Oh that's interesting. I used to love them as characters back in the day. Kinda lost touch with them but it might be interesting to see what they do with the idea. That trailer is all foreshadowing so lets see where it goes ... although whether I will...

....yeah - during episode 5 we decided to dump Iron Fist. It's not offensive, it's not terrible - but it's simplistic, shallow and extraordinarily bland.

It was Claire that did it - she just... shows up as if she's been written into the scene on the day it was being filmed and was grimly crowbarred in. Rosario is great but ... they couldn't find a better way to fit her in?

A lot of it was just "long-form for the sake of it" I feel - spending hours with scenarios that should have taken minutes. The ethical-guy-takes-on-big-pharma scenario genuinely seems like it was written in minutes by an idiot. It doesn't help anyone to be that crude about it but seriously. At times it made your standard Fox primetime trash show look like The Wire.

Happy to watch Rand as part of the ensemble in Defenders, but the groundwork here doesn't seem like it's worth eight more hours of my time.
