my impressions of Iron Fist three episodes in

Over on Tor.com, I provide my impression of Marvel's Iron Fist on Netflix based on the first three episodes. I look at the opening trio from the perspective of a comics fan, of a martial artist, and of a regular ol' TV viewer. Sadly, at least so far, it's lacking in all three.....

An excerpt:
Danny spends the entire first episode coming across as a crazed stalker, which isn’t a great way to introduce our theoretical hero. It doesn’t help that his attempts to convince Ward and Joy that he’s who he says he is are just idiotic. In episode 2 we find out that Danny and Joy used to avoid the brown M&Ms. In episode 3 we find out that Danny broke his arm as a little kid and Ward took him to the hospital, and only the two of them knew about that. Which raises the question of why the hell Danny didn’t mention either of these things in episode 1.
