    4 episodes in and I'm quite enjoying it. The callback to his old school look in the flashback scenes was great.

    Finished. Probably a 3/5 if I had to rate.

    Spoiler: show
    Just kinda had to shake my head at Diamondback being his bastard brother and the whole revenge for not being the chosen son angle. Taking things further, we're also somehow supposed to swallow that after the frame job, he become this uber-savvy and financially well off criminal, affording him the expensive material for the Judas bullets and whatever the fuck tech that cheesy ass suit was. Basically, the initial point was way too much of an achilles heel. And this being a comic story, we know he'll escape in the future and pretty much start things all over again.

    Presuming a S2, I'm having a rough time seeing Shades and Mariah as a legit threat if she continues to stay in the game. While they technically got most other competition killed, I believe they're broke outside of the club. And if they somehow spin her political career getting salvaged, it'll be something worse than Trump rising here in reality. So, while I suppose a completely new setting could technically work, I just don't see them pulling Luke out of the NY area given the relationship the series has to DD and JJ.

    While unlikely, I think I'd prefer some more synergy among the 3 in their future outings, as my old critique about JJ was it tried to dabble in so many genres, but never really excelled at any. And that usually came at the expense of the fact that, yeah, these are supposed to be shows about supers. Emo origin stories out of the way, let 'em do some cool shit.

I'm gonna keep watching today but after DD season 2 and Stranger Things this is underwhelming.
    How the fuck did you abandon JJ...

    I'm 6 episodes in and it's alright. Not great. Not terrible. I would still rate it higher than Jessica Jones though. Daredevil is still at the top.

    Great actors, cinematography's quite good as well.

    I find this show's writing quite mediocre. Not enough featuring the main character. Villains are pretty sloppy, imo.

    With the exception of the casual references to events or people from the other shows/movies, this doesn't feel like a superhero/Marvel show at all. Six episodes in and I think I'm giving up.

    I enjoyed Luke in JJ more. He's just too boring as practically-invincible main character.

    I think this is my biggest concern so far (2 episodes in). The dialogue so far has been extremely poor and the events incredibly predictable.

    This is all compared to other Marvel content, of course, and I am enjoying it for what it is.

    uhhh I'm on ep 7 and I think this show is just getting shittier and shittier. The main villain is a joke, he does dumb shit all the time and he's no challenge for Luke neither mentally nor physically. His minions all get taken out in 1 punch. Shades doesn't do shit. Wtf is the point of Cottonmouths sister. So 7 episodes in the bad guys are worthless and uninteresting and Luke goes around and gives angry looks. Am I missing something?

    Just finished this and thought it was the weakest of the Marvel Netflix stuff so far, but not terrible or anything and still better than a lot of shows. Really liked the characters, but felt the bad guys of the series were just really not that great. Similar to Daredevil season 2's bad guys I guess (Punisher really carried that season though to make up for it).

    Daredevil season 1 > Jessica Jones > DD season 2 > Luke Cage so far for me. Looking forward to Iron Fist though.

    Another issue I'm having with this show... somebody on /r/Defenders said:

    "The show does a really good job of making a culture I'm not a part of feel relatable. You can put yourself in the characters' shoes."

    I really disagree with that statement.

    Having watched the whole thing I would agree with this ranking.

    What's the statute of limitations on spoiler tags for netflix shows?

    This is kinda where I'm at. It's a good premise, and while it's slow going at first, it builds up momentum and he hits a tipping point. I think my issue is his personality doesn't fit the setting or what's going on. He's Mr. Humble-Immortal-Guy, but that doesn't make for a compelling character. JJ and Daredevil really have their main characters down to a T. They have faults. That can and are dicks, they make mistakes, they argue even when they're wrong, etc.

    It also took me about 4 episodes to realize that Pop was Frankie Faison and not Charles S. Dutton lol.
