by Jason Brigger

Stars: Cress Williams, China Anne McClain, Nafessa Williams, Christine Adams | Developed by Salim Akil One of the more enjoyable aspects of the Black Lightning series is the series’ ability to balance the superhero dynamic with the characters’ personal lives and while episode five is more superhero friendly than previous episodes, it still delivers on […]

‘Black Lightning 1×04: Black Jesus’ Review

by Jason Brigger

Black Lightning’s fourth episode is a rebound episode after last week’s lackluster attempt and my love for the series returns, not that it was ever in question.

by Jason Brigger

Stars: Cress Williams, China Anne McClain, Nafessa Williams, Christine Adams | Developed by Salim Akil Black Lightning strikes (see what I did there?) a new and completely different tone for superhero shows on television and after only one episode, the show feels like it was a show Netflix created and not network television.
