Luke Cage


#1

Who’s watching? I’m three episodes in so far and really liking it. Got great atmosphere and Mike Colters brilliant.


#2

1 episode down. Really liked it. Not much to add.

I saw a picture of how they rather tenuously get him into the old 70s POWER MAN costume, it looks pretty funny.


#3

Episode 4. Really getting going now. Loved the origin story, the nod to the original costume and ‘I look a damn fool’ :smiley:

Not really feeling Juice from Sons of Anarchy as a super menacing gangster though, he doesn’t have enough threatening presence.


#4

It’s alright isn’t it. Love the jazzy soundtrack.


#5

Just finished this last night. Really enjoyed it.


#6

One episode in but, yeah, the music is excellent.


#7

Seen about twenty five minutes so far. I like him as a central character. The guy playing him has a nice face.


#8

Yeah, I’d heard the soundtrack was supposed to be good.

I’m liking this one from Ep 5


#9

Enjoying how all the Netflix Marvel series are starting to work in at least a couple of story arcs into each series as set, four/five-episode runs, just like in the comics.

Arguably LC was the worst of the three, but is still excellent. I am extremely worried that Iron Fist is going to be absolute dogshit by comparison but still.

Misty Knight’s character was fantastic, and really liked her partner’s role too. The Night-Nurse thing… it’s fine. It’s forced. But it was a good way of not making the crossovers too heavyhanded I guess

almost finished the series. read somewhere that Mike Colter had reservations about taking on the Luke Cage role because it seemed blaxploitationy. Pretty weird that the whole thing is a blaxploitation pastiche.
