Well, the first season was bad.  Pretty much uniformly panned.  But this looks to be a massive improvement from the trailer.  And, ladies and gentlemen, we have the mask.

His guest spot in season 2 of Luke Cage was very
promising!

I never understood the criticisms of the first season. I enjoyed it.

The first season was absolutely dreadful; a miscast Danny Rand and the world's arguably best fighter spending more time in board rooms than actually fighting. Very boring.

I survived the first season only because of my love for the (comic) character and the good supporting characters in the series. Actually if the whole series was about Colleen Wing it might have been more interesting. 

But the lead actor simply cannot fight. He looks ordinary next to everyone else on the show. There are some things that you just can't fake. I can't believe that they would have trouble finding a good actor with at lease some martial arts skills.  

Looks like he got some more practice for the second season, but Colleen still looks more like the one form K'un L'un in the trailer.  Not sure I will check this out, unless of course the costume shows up.

Misty Knight's casting was great, IMO.

I agree the casting of Misty Knight and Colleen Wing was superb. But that doesn't make up for the fact that the first season of the show was very mediocre.

I may sample the first episode of the new season to see what azimuth corrections they have made. But if we get another season with a whiny, guilt-ridden, non-combative Danny Rand then I am going to drop this show like a bad habit and look elsewhere for my Marvel entertainment.

Seems like a lot of people disliked the show for
different reasons. Mine was the inconsistency of
Danny's skills. One episode he takes down multiple
trained martial artists without breaking a sweat, then
in another he's taken out via being bonked from behind
by a rent-a-cop.

If the LUKE CAGE episode is any indication, Danny won’t be a “whiny, guilt-ridden non-combative” any more.
