    If you don't compare this to the David Carradine show from the 70s, I think this stands up pretty well.

    The first few episodes were enjoyable enough. A mystical martial arts drama with some arrowverse production values. You can see Greg Berlanti's fingerprints on it (he's an EP). It fits well with other CW shows. Good setup for the season too.

    Worth a look.

    Not sure what I was expecting so it's okay so far.
    Would think she would wear some kind of mask to protect her identity if she's just going to be fighting local bad guys.

    Anyone watching this? 10 episodes in, 2 to go (I think).
    Not a bad show at all - a bit of a hidden gem.

    Yep haven't seen this week's episode but as you said, a hidden gem. The fight scenes are good too

    going by the dialogue in the trailer it looks horrific

    A belief in gender identity involves a level of faith as there is nothing tangible to prove its existence which, as something divorced from the physical body, is similar to the idea of a soul. - Colette Colfer

    Would love to see the original Carradine version again, it’s been years since I saw it! It’s never repeated!

    Think there was 1 or 2 episodes that dragged for me until near the end. Was the one where they went to some sort of gala event.

    But for the most part I like it. True the fights aren't exactly Banshee or Warrior level. I think those shows ruined fight scenes for me. :)

    This week's episode's ending was a bit too on the nose. "Oh in case you didn't realise, that song I sang contains clues for you"

    I don't think it's a big enough show for any network in the UK or here to pick it up. All American is on its 4th season and it's never aired here. Same with Walker.
