Thwip! Watch is all about what goes on our screens, namely TV. Whether CW or Fox or NBC or what-have-you, you can be sure that we here at Thwip! have been watching it. Today we are going to talk about Marvel’s Iron Fist.
So we are basically in the second half of the season and it seems that the showrunner has realized that “oh shit, we need to actually have a plot to the series.”
This episode has a lot of talking about things so that other things will happen. I couldn’t give you the details because they are so nonsensical and vapid that I would effectively lower the IQ of the entire internet if I explained it (and I don’t think the net can survive any more loss).
So they have effectively destroyed Colleen Wing’s character, who basically plays vapid submissive Asian girl in this episode – which is fine for my porn, but not for my TV.
Also, why was Night Nurse there to do the stitching? There was literally no reason for her not to be there…and the worst thing is that they bring it up that she isn’t there! If you didn’t say anything we would have just shrugged and moved on.
I think that’s the problem with this episode, it feels like several people wrote it and no one consulted each other about what was supposed to happen, in fact, if this episode was recut as an anthology piece it would probably have a bit more interesting throughline.
I will admit, they should just make a series of Madame Gao trying to do hand business in New York, it would be a corporate show where various mooks and heroes keep interrupting the day to day operations…ah the series not made.
