Iron Fist's second season is infinitely more aware of the property's inherent narrative snagging points than the first, but rather than avoid them altogether, it makes a valiant effort of actually trying to mold them into something.
This season is very character heavy, but the action sequences are exhilarating to watch. The energy Jessica Henwick and Finn Jones bring to these scenes, as well as their chemistry, really gives this show a breath of fresh air.
I am a person who wants to watch more Iron Fist. It's shocking, I know. I still don't really believe it myself. It took time to get there - to the end of the eighth episode, "Citadel on the Edge of Violence," in fact.
It doesn't blow the MCU status quo out of the water, but the action here is capable and entertaining - and they keep the set pieces loose and fun in a way that feels like a good fit for this character and world.
After seeing the first six episodes, this is what I got: the sophomore season is in fact better than its original outing. The fight choreography has had a marked improvement and the flow is significantly more fluid and the cinematography feels smoother.
If you tapped out during Season One, Season Two is definitely worth a revisit. Its better, less clunky, moves at a fast clip, all the characters are now established and ready to kick ass and chew bubble gum.
