Grumpy Bird Reviews: The Defenders s01e04 Royal Dragon

I’ll be honest. I watched this episode twice. The first time was the day before going to my last camp session. I finished the episode, had to go do some family things, and when I got back I couldn’t really remember anything that had happened. Or at least, I couldn’t parse this episode from the … More Grumpy Bird Reviews: The Defenders s01e04 Royal Dragon

Grumpy Bird Reviews: The Defenders s01e03 Worst Behavior

This is the third episode I’ve watched today. I’m trying to binge these shows before I go to camp (which is where I am when this is published.) Don’t know if this will make the shows better or worse, but it does make the more disappointing elements feel more potent. Whatever that means. The Defenders … More Grumpy Bird Reviews: The Defenders s01e03 Worst Behavior

Grumpy Bird Reviews: The Defenders s01e02 Mean Right Hook

Well, at least the heroes are starting to meet.   The Defenders s01e02 Mean Right Hook writers: Lauren Scmidt Hissrich & Marco Ramirez director: S. J. Clarkson Netflix Quick Review: I don’t know. I really don’t. This show is already feeling like taffy. Stretched out. Things happened in this episode. I know they did. I … More Grumpy Bird Reviews: The Defenders s01e02 Mean Right Hook

Grumpy Bird Reviews: The Defenders s01e01 The H Word

When Daredevil (the Netflix version) first came out there was a clear sense of excitement. This excitement continued for most of the Marvel Netflix shows, but for some reason, the release of Defenders almost escaped my notice. Maybe it is just a busy time of year for me. Or maybe it has something to do … More Grumpy Bird Reviews: The Defenders s01e01 The H Word

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 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 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
