We all face the reaper.

Location: South Africa, under the bed.

Episode 4. Starts slow but just keeps building and building. So far it's not yet as good as Daredevil or Punisher but it's showing a lot of promise. The fighting scenes are a bit of a let-down because he doesn't really do anything besides slap a few guys around. Story's pretty good though and the music and cinematography is excellent. Hopefully we'll see him go all-out before the show is over.

Watched the first episode, liked it. I'm halfway through the second one now.

I'm already worried Pop won't survive this season.

about to start the 3rd episode. I like most of it but some of the performances were pretty bad. Especially the bad guys.

Are you talking about the random goons?

The main bad guy is good.

yeah i was referring to the main bad guy too. It just felt callow to me. Like he's trying very hard to look "mob'ish. There's no subtlety or nuance about his performance at all.

I'm 5 episodes in. Been enjoying it so far. Stokes isn't quite Fisk, IMO, but still enjoyable. And Luke has been a hell of a lot more impressive so far than he was at any point in Jessica Jones. I have to say I am enjoying the sound track too, and there have been a couple of really good shots/camera work/cinematography. Not really a fan of Misty so far though.

Only one somewhat PIS moment so far, [SPOILER - highlight to read]: in that there was no way that old lady should have survived the rocket. The explosion caused a massive fireball, blew out the shop walls and caused the whole building to collapse in on itself. Even if Luke covered her with his whole body, there is no way he could have protected her from all that. But they needed him to pull off some amazing save to get the people in Harlem excited, which is why I call it a PIS moment.

Also, it almost looks like he gets her out of the way before the rocket hits him in the back. How the hell can he just be KO'd from that, but the shotgun pressed behind the chin bone (it was actually pressed against the mylohyoid muscle, in the gap between chin bone and Adam's apple, as someone pointed out via screenshots on another forum) causes a brain hemorrhage? Or the gun going off in his hand. Even if his bones and skin are tough, the severity of damage the shotgun did should mean that he would have had at least some inflammation/swelling/discomfort in his hand for a while afterwards, but that was not the case. Hell, nothing up until now has done any kind of lasting damage, so that shotgun is looking more and more like major PIS.

Then again, Luke's "coma" in JJ seemed to be tied to Kilgrave as well, as he woke up after Jessica snapped Kilgrave's neck.

I like the bad guy, though I guess I would have preferred someone with powers.

It's kind of weird though seeing Juice from Sons of Anarchy. Poor Juice, he tried so hard. The main villain was in 4400 as well.

I still remember The 4400. I actually enjoyed that show. IIRC, the actor who plays Cottonmouth had TK powers in it, and was the father of the uber powerful crazy girl.

I'm really diggin Luke Cage. It's like Shaft (with super strength) meets New York Undercover. It plays like a modern take on 70's blaxploitation flicks with 90's period New York flavoring, but takes a dramatic approach instead of satire. Once I saw Raphael Saddiq and Faith Evans I was sold. I almost expected Malik Yoba and Michael Delorenzo to be in Cottomouth's club after a day on the beat. I'm on episode 9 now.

I like Luke Cage's character.

I'm not sure if he's the same in the comics, he always seemed like a shallow parody, but in here he's full of depth.

He's a solid man with plenty of layers and is very righteous. I also like how uncomfortable he is when he says nigga. It truly pains him to say the word.

I also love the music. I love that its full of jazz, blues and funk and not just hip hop. It's very versatile and I've always been a fan of the old school genres.

watched first ep last night.. have to say that I was not impressed... Took too long to develop his character.. Cotttonmouth seems like someone that will be a thorn in Cage's side. will watch more episodes later to see if my opinion will change.

[SPOILER - highlight to read]: Cage totally held back against Stryker, lol

All and all great series, and as expected Marvel's Netflix series are amazing.

10/10

[SPOILER - highlight to read]: Also the doctor that got the Shrapnel out of Luke's body is seen in a hospital with Stryker after the fight. We might see Diamondback return at some point enhanced. He somehow was able to keep the data from the prison in Georgia

Yeah, Cottonmouth was dope. He's like Stringer Bell and Nino Brown blended together. I know people will compare him to Kingpin but I feel it's an unfair comparison. D'Onofrio was going for a whole different type of criminal with his Wilson Fisk adaptation.

Yeah he got TK in later seasons and eventually became a bad ass with it.

The entire show is on Netflix, it's too bad it was cancelled since it ended on sort of a cliffhanger.
