Campy, silly, and the same spotlight on black culture that you'd expect.
They take a black superhero and immediately make a story with gangs, guns, drugs, prostitution and every cliche from comic books about black heroes. It's bad story telling right out of the box. It's looking at liquor stores on every corner of poor neighborhoods and saying, "That's just how black neighborhoods are." NO. This is a man with incredible abilities, but because of the lack of knowledge by white executives & white writers; the only challenge Black Lightning will face is a school shooting. Supergirl gets to fight crazy aliens from all over the galaxy, but a black man who can shoot lightning bolts out of his hands is left to fight highschool dropouts?
The music for the show is predictable, the dialogue is undeveloped and that suit is no better than Black Lightning's old disco days. DC can't write good characters. How the hell do we have Marvel all over Netflix setting the standard but this is the best DC can muster? Change it up or it'll get dull really fast.
