"VANITY FAIR" (2018) Review

When I first heard that the ITV channel and Amazon Studios had plans to adapt William Makepeace Thackeray's 1848 novel, "Vanity Fair", I must admit that I felt no interest in watching the miniseries.

"Being His Own Iron Fist"





"BEING HIS OWN IRON FIST"

Unlike many fans of the Marvel Netflix (aka Defenders) franchise, I actually enjoyed its fourth series, "IRON FIST" very much. Especially Season One. I managed to enjoy the series up until the moment when Danny Rand decided that his girlfriend and martial artist, Colleen Wing, should become the new Iron Fist. After that . . . oh dear God.
