Description

Black Lightning stars Cress Williams as Jefferson Pierce, a man wrestling with a secret. As the father of two daughters and principal of a charter high school that also serves as a safe haven for young people in a neighborhood overrun by gang violence, he is a hero to his community. Nine years ago, Pierce was a hero of a different sort. Gifted with the superhuman power to harness and control electricity, he used those powers to keep his hometown streets safe as the masked vigilante Black Lightning. Almost a decade later, Pierce’s crime-fighting days are long behind him…or so he thought. But with crime and corruption spreading like wildfire, and those he cares about in the crosshairs of the menacing local gang The One Hundred, Black Lightning returns — to save not only his family, but also the soul of his community.

Slow Start, Stronger Finish

Compared to the Luke Cage, Black Lightning's early episodes deal with race and racism in an awkward and sometimes hokey manner. Unlike the Hero-of-Harlem, BL's Freeland and the Pierce family's experiences seem tone deaf. They lean a little too much on the Huxtable model of an exceptional family and community untouched by modern realities of race and racism in the United States. However, as the series develops it hones itself to become something.. in the words of Oliver Queen... more. The series is not without its flaws, but it is a series finding its footing in how it begins to incorporate racism, the drug epidemic, the school-to-prison pipeline and poverty into Season One. The series starts with candlelight vigils and the tired tropes of street gangs. It ends with a rogue Agent crowing "Make America Great Again" and human experiments on impoverished communities. Perhaps it is a coincidence of watching Cloak and Dagger around the same time, but the more I watch the more I feel like Freeland could be an analogy to New Orleans and the American South... one episode deals with the tearing down of a Confederate monument. DC has always gone a little more four-color on TV compared to Marvel offerings, but this is a welcome companion piece to The Flash and the other DC series. We need less gritty Arrowverse, and more Black Lightning. Recommended!

So great I loved it
