    Looks decent. Though is he a meta, or just tech enhanced? From the fact his daughter has it too, it seems lke it runs in the blood..

    Wow, didn't realize there was no dedicated section for this show.

    Watching season 3 now, very interesting with the whole occupation thing.

    Okay the last episode annoyed me a lot. Hopefully, the next episode shows the characters talking and sharing information. It's a common trope in shows, especially with teens, that not everything just a little bit suspicious is shared.

    My overall thoughts on the series:

    * I love that it plans out each season with a specific storyline and each episode is a piece of that journey. Having shorter seasons means story arcs don't get dragged out.

    * I love how Black Lightning isn't a new hero in this world, instead he was coming out of retirement.

    * I love the mysteries and intrigue of the series.

    * I love the family dynamics and characters. Though, if Gambi is part of the family, then he needs to show up at their house for dinner at least on occasion.

    * I love how it weaves the issues that matter to the city's residents with the story arcs of the characters. From Black Lightning's return to policing are perfect for this. Other shows essentially separate the lives of the heroes and their journey from the city except only when to raise the stakes. In Black Lightning, it's part of parcel of the characters and their journey. The heroes don't live apart from their community, they are members and active/inactive participants in it.

    I love, love, love... the new opening...

    ...But I need Black Lightning back in the streets of Freeland, and I need Odell out of business.

    Spoiler:

    The Markovians though... are we playing into their hands by evacuating the Meta's?

    Thanks, I just noticed the new opening. I was just oblivious to it.

    I don't like Odell's influence on Jen. And Harriet Tubman could tell who was wearing a mask? Also, why was he wearing a mask for the first time after so many missions without?

    Tobias was SO creepy in the last episode, even though he was restrained.
