one of the worst tv episode i've ever watched in my life!! back the hell up from this shit!

avatar

unlike most of the other CW superhero shows, Black Lightning isn't overblown with soap opera type storylines. yes, there is some family drama thrown in, but that's to be expected with the main character being a family man, but it's not overdone. good first episode and if this keeps up, i think we have a winner. i also have to mention his costume, which looks awesome by the way

avatar

Is it rough on the edges? Yes. Is it high on teenage drama like other cw series? Not yet. Even that alone is saying something.

avatar

By Reading These comments I'm glad Ppl see this show for garbage that it is

avatar

This TV show is simply excruciatingly boring, and crappy, even though it as some quality production. I rarely been so annoyed with melodrama stuff, bad acting, bad story, ridiculous fx/cgi. It's just bad.

avatar

This show is beyond terrible. I don’t understand how this crap got renewed...let’s throw good money at bad money. This show has so much potential but it seems like the creators decided to go to a high school, find a bunch of film students, said here’s some money...make us a show. So they got together & gave us this crap. Terrible writing, horrible casting, poor acting, stupid dialogue, and bad special effects. Even worst the writers thought throwing in every black stereotype was a great idea...it’s nothing more than insulting.

avatar

everytime politics enter a superhero show im out. just that easy for me. I don't care a hero or villain or whatever is White, Black, Green or a blob.... gay, trans whatever. if it's not punched obvious in your face, I really dont care, shouldnt it be that way? it has the same issues like supergirl, focus on political correctness, quote gay here, black there, and ignore a good Story. damn. sure those Shows get good critics, but actually just lame. I think most people outside the US wonder what the fuzz is all about.

avatar

I really want this show to work but so far I just can’t seem to get in to it. It’s really sad because I was hoping this would be another DC Comics hit show. The main thing I’m struggling with is that they all live in a posh area with private school yet all they encounter is gang bangers from the ghettos that seem to live down the street from them. How is that even possible? I grow up in a shit hole town & let me tell you, none of our schools or the kids that went there were like what they show here. I wish the director did a better job.

avatar

So many angry characters, even when they aren't doing their superhero work. The main hero does keep his cool most of the time and is a better role model in his regular job. Everyone else just seem to be pissed because the day of the week ends in "y."

I quickly lost interest after a few episodes.

A little about me 👋 I am a marketing student in Paris. I love spending afternoons with friends in a cafe or a park.

But more than anything else, I love watching (.. binging…) series on my computer on rainy Sundays or any sunny day for that matter 🙈

I must have watched hundreds of shows by now, from romance to science-fiction series. Often I like to go back to a show I enjoyed. But I don’t feel like watching it all over again…

I created this website so myself and others could find the best episodes of our favourite shows. As of today, I have about 1,000 shows on the website with votes and rating coming from fans.
