Black Lightning Season 2
« on: October 10, 2018, 02:30:38 PM »
Season 2 went off a great start. It picked up right where it left off and now the family are dealing with consequences from last season. We get another infamous hallway fight scene which I love to see. Lightning is getting powerful already. The pastor owns a gun in a church which is really bizarre. I like where this is heading so far.

I wonder if they're going to have Jen be Halo in this iteration. The glowy ball/floating thing reminds me of her powers. Would make sense for the show since in the comicals she just has lightning powers.

I should probably finish season 1...  I liked the show, but for unknown reasons I just stopped caring.  I think I was only a couple of episodes from the end.
When you insult someone by calling them a "pig" or a "dog" you aren't maligning pigs and dogs everywhere.  The same is true of any term used as an insult.

This and Supergirl are on some list of the 50 Worst TV shows on right now.

I don't see it. I love the show myself.

You could get fairly close to 50 without even leaving the genre.

This show is like watching a live action version of CoX.

I was thinking more of the action scenes.  Although, come to think of it, BL sure spends a lot of time calling his contacts.

I remember the hours Tenzhi and I spent RP'ing about who needs therapy.

Spoiler for Hidden:
Always both.

"I don't want powers! Waaaah!" characters grate on my nerves.

The odd guitar made for strange intro music.

I don't remember... so the therapy must be working!

What can I say?  Chained ghosts play guitar funny.  And I thought he only had that one song:  Don't Worry Be Haunted

Your six degrees of Bobby McFerrin skills are rather impressive.

Yeah, well, that intro music clearly confused the dickens out of me.  :P

So the clinic building sale is a money laundering scheme but the priest is going to show up to buy it with 300k in bundled cash? Those collection boxes really give a lot of latitude i suppose.

First off I bet we find the priest isn't giving all that money away.

And second unless they explain how the guy got caught next episode - I feel like I missed a reel of a film.

yeah that came out of nowhere. Though given that we're used to seeing things coming down the pike for 15 episodes with these shows it's a bit refreshing.

I got the distinct impression that he intended for that to happen.

Quite possible. But the next week thing made it look like he was pretty upset.

Spoiler for Hidden:
Someone had to know he was going to be there at that time. And it looked like that was where he was heading when he asked Kalil how he looked and then said lets go.

Good call on that one. And it actually makes sense.
Now he can be like Luthor - the heroes know he is the bad guy but legally can't touch him if he does nothing wrong publicly.
