The Iron Fist TV thread! Spoilers abound!


#609

Word Spy’s word of the week from May 23rd last year is relevant to something we were discussing in this thread a few days back

#610

Haha, I’ve never heard that before. That’s great.


#611

the origin of the term is quoted there, and for full disclosure, it’s the comments section of a SF blog I read.


#612

Just want to say that I always enjoy reading your opinions even when I vehemently disagree with them. :slight_smile:


#613

Is that what it’s called? I’ve been calling it the “Anti-Miles Morales Principle”

Thanks, haha. Same to you, I was more or less just trying to play along with the previous energy of the reponse :wink:


#614

Johnnie Walker


#615

And tbh I don’t really disagree with you on this subject. I don’t think Disney is or should be known for laziness, but Iron Fist felt very lazy. The same could be true of the Beauty and the Beast remake–I can say for sure that it doesn’t look interesting to me, aside from a few of the designs.


#616

True.

It is a grievous sin to know the correct spelling of Johnnie Walker. No one should spend that close to a bottle.


#617

That was in one of the episodes I watched last night. I thought the same thing and out of an airplane bottle no less. Even if they didn’t have the budget for something nice, they could have used Jim Beam or just called it Scotch.


#618

It’s probably telling that at least three of this flagged this as a noteworthy problem…


#619

I think it says we have good taste in whiskey. :wink:


#620

To be fair, I’ve also noted that the Marvel Netflix universe is also the only place where millionaires/billionaires drive Hyundais. :wink:

This is so prominent that Danny’s Aston Martin DB11 looks out of place. :wink:

Edit: It looks like my suspicions were correct. There’s a placement deal.


#621

I was hoping they were just taking the piss.


#622

Johnnie Walker Black Label tastes very nice, but it gave me terrible hangovers two Christmas’s in a row, so I avoid it now.

Pity really…


#623

In my defense I was posting from my phone and it autocorrected for some reason without me noticing. The bottle of Blue Label that was sitting on my bar not 5 feet away at the time can testify that I know the correct spelling.


#624

I can believe a bottle of whiskey is never too far from you at any time of the day. :wink:


#625

And Tim has had a cup holder fitted.


#626

No… I… Yeah, you got me there.


#627

I noticed that in Jessica Jones where the super-rich Carrie Anne Moss character drove one if I recall correctly.

I wondered if they had different status in the US as it’s generally a cheap brand here (kinda like how taxis are Mercedes in Germany).

(With these deals, I guess part of it is that the cars always need to be made to look good - this does often result in them being super clean and polished, with perfectly clear windows, even when that’s completely unlikely in story terms.)


#628

Hyundai is not a luxury brand here. Though they used a car from their Genesis line which is slightly more upmarket.
