The Joy of Television Podcast, Episode 11:

Superhero TV Special - Iron Fist and Legion

On this episode of The Joy of Television Podcast, we (Rich, Jordan and Kevin) discuss two very different takes on the modern Superhero TV show - The Marvel/Netflix Kung-Fu origin-story Iron Fist, and FX's "superhero-origin-story-meets-prestige-drama" Legion. These shows approach the comic book/superhero genre from wildly different perspectives, and have been met with a wide range of opinions from critics and fans.

We'll be offering our thoughts on all aspects of these drastically different shows - from characters, to plot, to production, to, well, showrunning - and why we feel that one is much more effective than the other. We'll also discuss some recent TV news, including updates on Netflix's The Defenders, Black Lightning, Inhumans, X-Men: Gifted and some surprising TV renewals. And to round out the proceedings, we run down some of the shows we've been watching recently - namely The Killing, Speechless, The Americans, 13 Reasons Why, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Sons of Anarchy, and more.

So join us, as we travel from the snow-covered gates of mystical city of K'un-Lun, to the literal edge of sanity in the mind of a mutant. This...is the Joy of TV!
