'Marvel's Iron Fist' - TV Review

I don't want to mislead anyone, so: this review is based on watching the first five episodes in full, and then watching bits and pieces of the rest. The reason for this is that the writers were stretching out material that could have been covered in four one hour episodes to 13 episodes. Not only that, the writing was staggeringly pedestrian: as Oscar Wilde once said, "The man who could call a spade a spade should be compelled to use one." Painfully dull writing. It also felt like a soap opera with martial arts and a bit of magic thrown in (amazingly similar to DC's "Arrow"). Speaking of which - the martial arts was better than I expected (although still not good). But I'm not watching 13 hours of tripe for the occasional mediocre martial arts fight. Can I just add - for someone who spent fifteen (formative) years studying meditation in Heaven, and who had the focus to beat all competitors to become "The Iron Fist," our protagonist Danny Rand is an incredibly unfocussed guy.
