Finished the final two episodes this morning, and overall I thought the show was "meh". Finn Jones just doesn't have the physicality to sell himself as a martial arts master, the fight scenes were overall poorly choreographed and filmed, and (like most of the other Marvel Netflix shows) there wasn't enough plot to justify 13 episodes.

My current rankings of the Netflix Marvel shows:

1. Daredevil Season 1
2. Daredevil Season 2, First half with the Punisher
3. Luke Cage, First half with Cottonmouth
4. Jessica Jones
5. Daredevil Season 2, Second half with Elektra and the Hand
6. Iron First
7. Luke Cage, Second half

So apparently one of the leaked videos ends with Maddox uh... "finishing" on Paige's face and the NXT Women's belt.

It's one thing for two people to film what they do in private, but involving something so directly associated with your place of employment in that kind of way is probably not going to fly.

@meteora3255: The fact that Danny Rand is a rich, white guy and Luke Cage is a poor/ lower middle-class black guy and the dynamic between them on the team is something that's been explored in the Defenders comics quite a few times. I hope this is something they address in the show and changing Danny's ethnicity wouldn't give them an opportunity to do so.

If that's something they don't choose to explore in the show version, then I'm more inclined to agree with the people who campaigned for an Asian Danny.

For years the GOP AND Democrats have been distracting poor people by saying "Capitalism isn't the problem! It's immigration! It's terrorism! It's PoC! It's everything except capitalism that's the problem!". Guess what? Those chickens are finallly coming home to roost. The Democrats who historically have claimed to have solutions for the poor nomiated the most out of touch, corrupt person they possible could have. Another candidate who loves war and promises superficial change, but only brings a staggering sense of entitlement.

What you're seeing here is a scramble for narrative. Are we really going to continue with the tired nonsense that racism and sexism motivated the entire electorate? Or are we going to get down to it and ACTUALLY look at class and economic issues and the focus on the poor that Sanders and Trump represented to their voters. The Left has to take a good long look at itself and ask if it was worth rigging the primaries for Clinton, and throwing white workers under the bus by calling them deplorables, racists, and xenophobes.

Voters want to be treated like they're human. Trump did that by playing on group identity, bringing people in based on ethnicity and cultural background. Sanders did it by encouraging class identity, uniting people against special interests. Clinton... Well, what did she even do? What was her demographic exactly? White middle class feminists who think it'd be neat for a woman to be president? People who don't like Trump? We are living in a world where the status quo just IS NOT WORKING for the poor. How is offering the status quo going to help or reach these people? We need MORE than a superficial change.

Democrats were told this from the beginning. They didn't listen and now they're refusing to understand that it wasn't third parties or racists that fucked them over. It was DWS and the Democratic party itself.

@ericsmith: Or she's deliberately trying to get released in the quickest way possible.

There are a lot of people in this thread who remind me of Jamie Foxx's character in The Amazing Spider-Man 2, with pictures of Spider-Man all over his room and pretending that Spider-Man is his best friend when in reality they met for about 10 seconds.
