Black Lightning

So I finally got around the other day to watching the latest installment in the DC comics television universe, Black Lightning. It’s pretty good I have to say.

Instead of an origin story, the first episode is of a retired hero (or vigilante – depending on your point of view) getting back into the fight. Though there will be an origin story in there too, just not Black Lightning’s.

The show runner took a page out Tarantino’s playbook. The music in the show is incredible. Everything from Isaac Hayes to Nina Simone, to “Lazaretto” by Jack White (of White Stripes fame) which is used in a fight scene. (THE fight scene)

The biggest issue for me (and there are a few) is that since it comes out on CW I can’t binge-watch episodes. Only one per week. Oh well…
