Grumpy Bird Reviews: Iron Fist s01e11: Lead Horse Back to Stable

I kept wondering that if this were episode 2 or 3 instead of episode 11, would I be getting more out of it. Maybe I would be able to focus on the little mysteries instead of all the missed opportunities. Maybe.

Grumpy Bird Reviews: Iron Fist s01e10: Black Tiger Steals Heart

I get it now. I’ve been dancing around the issue with this show for the past nine episodes and here on the tenth I finally get why it is I don’t really like it. Stay tuned. Iron Fist s01e10: Black Tiger Steals Heart writer: Quinton Peeples director: Peter Hoar Netflix Quick Review: We are at … More Grumpy Bird Reviews: Iron Fist s01e10: Black Tiger Steals Heart

Grumpy Bird Reviews: Iron Fist s01e09: The Mistress of All Agonies

It’s all about stamina. The need to go the distance. That’s all it’s about now. Boy, that doesn’t sound like a promising starter to this review. Iron Fist s01e09: The Mistress of All Agonies writer: Pat Charles director: Jet Wilkinson Netflix Quick Review: A big clap to Wai Ching Ho. Her performance as Gao was … More Grumpy Bird Reviews: Iron Fist s01e09: The Mistress of All Agonies

Grumpy Bird Reviews: Iron Fist s01e08: The Blessing of Many Fractures

I’ve written about the show being relatively dull. It hasn’t been so much bad as just rather average. But this episode marks a point where almost all the dialog is rather cringe-worthy. Real cheese ball stuff. Iron Fist s01e08: The Blessing of Many Fractures writer: Tamara Belcher-Wilkinson director: Kevin Tancharoen Netflix Quick Review: It really … More Grumpy Bird Reviews: Iron Fist s01e08: The Blessing of Many Fractures

Grumpy Bird Reviews: Iron Fist s01e07: Felling Tree with Roots

Are we going in circles? Which Netflix show am I watching again? Is it the one where the hero has to rescue a kid at about the halfway point? Or is it the one with spoiler spoiler spoiler at the end of a middle episode? Several shows do that? Oh. That’s a shame. Iron Fist … More Grumpy Bird Reviews: Iron Fist s01e07: Felling Tree with Roots

Grumpy Bird Reviews: Iron Fist s01e06: Immortal Emerges from Cave

One thing I can say about this show is that it is making me want to go back and reread some comics. Sometimes comics, just like books, are better than the shows they are turned into. The question I have after this episode is do I go back to the originals, or do I just … More Grumpy Bird Reviews: Iron Fist s01e06: Immortal Emerges from Cave

Grumpy Bird Reviews: Iron Fist s01e04: Eight Diagram Dragon Palm

We’ve had three passable episodes in a row. Sure, they haven’t been as on fire as the first few episodes of other series, but I still don’t think they are as bad as was reported. They’ve been fun, and I’ve been interested in seeing where the story is going. But, with this episode, I think … More Grumpy Bird Reviews: Iron Fist s01e04: Eight Diagram Dragon Palm

Grumpy Bird Reviews: Iron Fist s01e03: Rolling Thunder Cannon Punch

I took a look at the title of this episode and after the more pastoral titles of episodes one and two, i was thinking that this would be were things jump off and turn insane. Well, that wasn’t the case. It was more interesting that episode 2, maybe not as much as episode 1. Iron … More Grumpy Bird Reviews: Iron Fist s01e03: Rolling Thunder Cannon Punch

Grumpy Bird Reviews: Iron Fist s01e02: Shadow Hawk Takes Flight

After so many negative reviews, I was surprised by how much I enjoyed the first episode. But what will episode 2 bring? Iron Fist s01e02: Shadow Hawk Takes Flight writer: Scott Buck director: John Dahl Netflix Quick Review: In the previous shows, all the Marvel/Netflix dramas have started off with a breakneck pace. That is … More Grumpy Bird Reviews: Iron Fist s01e02: Shadow Hawk Takes Flight

Grumpy Bird Reviews: Iron Fist s01e01: Snow Gives Way

A new Marvel Netflix show is out, and the major difference is that it is being panned by the critics. Now, I’ve ventured into the last three shows and have really joined their beginnings, but ultimately lost most of that enjoyment by the end. Let’s see how the beginning of Iron Fist compares.
