    It does NOT get better over time. I don't even know why I watched all 10 episodes. Should have just stopped after the pilot.

    Hopefully someone makes a clip version of the show, where all it shows is the martial arts scenes. That'd save you lots of time.

    I got turned off when the chick started explaining the power of a thousand monks or something or another. I came in thinking this would be the Asian variation of John Wick but was wildly disappointed. What a dud.

    The fact that her explanation made everything make LESS sense should tell you all you need to know about the plot.

    A thousand monks reside in the main character's body...yet we only really see one show up, throughout the course of the show. Literally insulting the audience's intelligence.

    Forget about watching this show and immediately go watch Triple Threat on Netflix. I don't know where the hell this movie came from, but this is a lot more fun than is should be. On a BloodSport scale of Saturday afternoon watchability, Triple Threat gets a sold 8.5/10.

    Tony Jaa, Iko Uwas, Tiger Chen, Micheal Jai White, Scott Adkins.. This is a ridiculous cast of C-list martial arts talent that catapults this movie in to S-tier "hell yes, please"

    They even got the woman who played Shadow on Arrow as the damsel..

    There were so many good, familiar actors in it that I enjoyed it until about episode 8. It fell off the rails for me at that point.

    Really not sure why I watched all of this. Probably a credit to the cast who I mostly all liked. The overall plot and writing was pretty rough and also confusing.

    It's better than I thought I would be based on the preview. Silly premise (especially to anyone growing up Chinese-- Uncle Six's ancient scroll is just cringy), cheesy CGI (though honestly I have watched a lot of bad CGI) but I like the actors and many of the scenes.

    this series was horrible, I can't believe I watched all the episodes.

    summer glau said like two sentences, the last episode was the worst.
    it was like they were rolling dice on the scenes and dialogue.

    this makes iron fist look like infinity war
