Almost as bad as Iron First. The actors themselves are okay, but the dialogue is weak and the action lacks the impact of early Daredevil scenes.
I think the main problem is that the Hand make for pretty bland villains. You just can't empathise with them like you can with Fisk, Kilgrave, or Cottonmouth. Each and every one of them is evil for the sake of being evil.
I've been waiting for this series for years and I felt extremely let down.
