    Black Lightning

    Post  AdamCollings on January 25th 2018, 1:54 am

    So I watched the first episode of Black Lightning the other night. It was banded as a Netflix Original, but pretty sure it's essentially CW.
    It felt very un-CW. Serious tone throughout. Felt grounded in reality (apart from the superpower, obviously). There was no "cw-ish relationship" stuff. The drama is centered around a middle-aged man who is a father and school principle. The emotional drive of the story is the man's desire to protect his children, and make a world that is safe for them (something I can certain connect with as a dad) He does have an ex-wife, who he hopes to re-connect with, which may lead to some angst in future, but for now it's looking like a distinctly different kind of show.

    I'd say it's theoretically set in the Arrowverse. There was a brief mention that other cities have superheroes, but name mention of Green Arrow or Flash by name.

    Well worth a look. It's possible even Peater might like it. anyway, I'm interested to see where it goes as it continues.

    Cool! That sounds like it has some real potential! If you decide to write or record a review I'd love to share it on the podcast!

    Sounds like fun. Another episode comes in a couple of days so might put something together after that.

    Since I have to use a VPN to access pretty much anything of worth, I can get on Netflix from pretty much anywhere. I noticed Black Lightning was being listed as a Netflix Original in Taiwan and stuff. I haven't been interested in TV shows as a medium in a while, but I might have to find time to check this out if they're doing away with the relationship aspects.
