TV Show Review: Iron Fist, Season 2

Details: Official site is https://www.netflix.com/title/80002612

Score: 6/10

The most exciting part of the second season of Iron Fist was the ending and the implications for the future. Otherwise, season two of Iron Fist is better than the first season, but still not great.

Season two picks up where The Defenders left off. Danny is trying to live up to his promise to Matt Murdock and is trying to protect the city. Davos and Joy Meachum return and have a plan to destroy the Iron Fist. Danny must now navigate the dangers caused by these two and find a way to remain the Iron Fist.

It’s a relatively shallow story in that there are only ten episodes. Considering how not great this show is, I’m glad it was shortened from the normal twelve episodes. The story is okay, but it’s definitely not great.

Fight scenes were okay, but still pale in comparison to what was achieved in Daredevil. They’re still better than what was in season one.

The newest character being introduced is Mary. Mary is obviously based on the character of Typhoid Mary from the comic books. Her presence is largely unnecessary and provides an extraneous plot point. The only good thing about the character is that it is played by an older Alice Eve. It’s nice to see Eve play a character that isn’t showing off her tits or playing the blonde bimbo. Eve’s character is a hardened, mentally unstable soldier and it’s nice to see Eve play a character with more than two dimensions.

Overall, this was an okay season of this show. It’s an improvement for sure. Like I said above, the best part of this show was the ending and the implications it has for the future. Hopefully, we’ll get to see some decent payoffs in season three.

Score: 6/10
