    Netflix Match Must Die

    I try to keep things upbeat on Stranger Views. Apart from the occasional rant about how bad Doctor Who has got under Steven Moffat, I generally only write about books and shows I actually like.

    Let’s start this by saying; I didn’t hate Iron Fist. It was okay. It had some cool fight scenes and some strong performances.
