I love a cover of a song, but not all covers are a like. You can have a good cover, say Siouxsie and the Banshees cover of Craftwork's "Hall of Mirrors" or the Damned's cover of Love's "Alone again or". You can have brilliant covers, like Johnny Cash's and Cheryl Crow's cover of NIN's "Hurt". And then there are the gems that make the song their own, like The Muppets cover of Queen's Bohemian Rhapsody.

Making a TV series or movie out of a book or comic is much like this. I'm up to episode 05 of Iron Fist and while I am enjoying it, it's like a good cover. They've reproduced the existing material, maybe switched a detail here and there, but it isn't that different from the comic. I enjoy it, but it is not as brilliant as "Luke Cage", "Jessica Jones", or the first season of "Daredevil". (I'm still deciding about season 02. Matt and Electra didn't do as much for me as Karen and Frank.)

But damned if my impulsive ID brain isn't trying to convince me that Danny would be an interesting pup.
