My intention this late evening was to watch something short in length on Netflix before going to bed. A program of 20 to 40 minutes would have been perfect because as it turns out, I started the Netflix program on my PS4 at exactly midnight. Because it was technically Friday when I began browsing, it meant that the first thing that popped up was The Iron Fist, the latest Marvel series on Netflix. These shows are incredibly hard to not binge watch. So instead of a short program, I watched the first two episodes back-to-back. The Iron Fist seems to have long episodes as well. Most of the previous Marvel shows are in the 40 to 50 minute range but the first two have been about an hour in length.
I’ve really enjoyed what I’ve seen so far and it draws you in as there multiple mysteries to solve. I think the series holds promise but we’ll have to see how the later episodes turn out. The incredibly disappointing Luke Cage also started out strong but finished so weakly it was dragged down the rest of the series.
Can’t wait to watch some more tomorrow!
