these marvel/netflix series are fun to watch, but they do have their own sets of problems. the non-punisher plotlines of daredevil season 2 were a chore to get through. even parts of luke cage felt tedious at times.


Definitely agree, especially on Daredevil season 2, but this sounds like a bigger issue on this one, judging by the quotes in that article.


Even at their best, all of the Marvel series so far have been a good 2-3 episodes too long. I mentioned it before, but devoting a whole bloated season to Iron Fist seemed like a stretch; should have just consolidated it and Luke Cage's season 2 into one series.

I think the Walking Dead has changed tactics to make me start hate watching again: Sharknado level CGI.

Legion is getting way too confusing and tedious for me.

Would have been better off as a binge watchable netflix show.

I'm watching these a day late, so I won't get to this until tonight, but as much as I love the show, I kinda get why the pace of it might not be everyone's cup of tea.

I saw a clip of Aubrey Plaza on Conan and she basically said that same thing. Maybe I'll take that advice and watch later on.

It is getting a little tedious, but I am still all in on that show. It is amazing.

Spoiler: show
Although, all of them going back to the hospital just seems excessively complicated simply for horsefeathers's sake.

Beginning in April, Netflix will go from a 5 star rating system to a "thumbs up/thumbs down" system.

Not totally sure why, but the Phillipino guitar bit really got me.

I'm through the first 10 eps of Iron FIst, and I'm enjoying it. It's not the best show I've ever seen or anything...it definitely has some rather ridiculous moments, and probably could stand to take itself a bit more lightly....but I think some of the reviews were overly harsh.
