News & Interviews for Black Lightning: Season 2
Oh man, I missed this show. The music, the portrayal of Black families and our communities is so spot on - it's not only fun, but poignant, as well. Sure, it's the CW, so expect some cheese, but all in all, Black Lightning is the sleeper superhero hit.
Black Lightning continues to be an engaging character-led series. There are a few storylines introduced, but the mystery briefcase seems to be the MacGuffin that will propel this season forward.
Few shows -- network or otherwise -- make me feel as much as Black Lightning does, and this was particularly true in the final scene of tonight's episode.
This feels like a particularly strong mid-season episode that's designed to remind you who Black Lightning's characters are and what's pushing them forward and the fact that this is only the season's premiere promises that we're in for a wild ride.
Despite a few flaws, Black Lightning's clear desire to educate and inspire through compelling family drama continues to make it a superhero show of consequence.
