at least they try to keep people interested in their service, been pondering hulu as well these days since netflix is stalling or don't drop at all the shows they use to. but, I'm with you, I'll watch it and give it a go. if I like it, there goes the weekend, if not on to something else. the things I've dropped on that site due to lack of interest....

Through the first five episodes, The Hand is up there for worst ninjas in all history. The amount of posturing, posing, and dumb physical proximity/contact that doesn't have someone immediately striking breaks the pacing. Otherwise it's alright, the team has decent enough chemistry and the actions scenes are serviceable.

*Edit: Just finished. My opinion on how shitty the Hand plotline is hasn't changed.

Yeah, not their best, not their worst. I thought the first few episodes were kind of slow, then things started heating up in the middle, but by the end I was starting to lose interest again. And yeah, things were wrapped up a little too perfectly for my tastes there at the end. Also, I don't think they were fooling anyone with...

going with an update, the best part about it was DareDevil, the minor fight scenes and the last episode fight scene. please stop standing around and talking, you're wasting precious time. from my viewpoint on the characters: DareDevil (big time fan), but he keeps the series alive for me, didn't care for the others. also the head villain Sigourney Weaver and Elektra kept it going, the rest was meh and dull in places. in my opinion this was like a side story representing how Elektra came from the ashes so to speak. as for the iron fist, well you'd figure someone with that supposed center chi wouldn't be so whiny, goodness Jessica is more of a man than you are. why must they cast female super heroes as weak or in a fashion that she needs someone, needs a man, needs romance, etc. wish they'd stop that, women will never come out of the shadows if they keep this up. Cage, basically a mutant dump truck who relies more on his bulletproof skin and less on trying to fight. I found Sticks to be fun, a pun on the blind samurai was somewhere in there in the making I'm sure. so, sure it was alright but nothing to write home about. from what I saw in the end episode (currently no call for a second season) there was a promo plug to the punisher, let's hope they don't make him weak either. from when he's been appearing in cameo spots on other super hero shows he has been. to me it was similar to the Avengers and Justice League. basically same super hero agenda just different characters. trying to protect New York from the clutches of the evil organization which calls themselves the Hand. we got sexual content, language, violence, some drug and alcohol use, real life issues and some rather interesting takes on the same old song and dance. but a good way to waste a couple days, yet not in a bad way.
