Luke Cage 2 episodes 1-4
« on: June 22, 2018, 06:01:09 AM »
I just caught the first episode.  Good start.  We got a few more bad guys from the comics this time around like Cockroach Hamilton and Comanche.

I’m surprised to see Misty’s stump being on camera as much as it is.  It can’t be cheap to green screen an arm out.

I am interested what they do with Luke’s dad and Bushmaster is badass so far.  Also, I am surprised they had Shades dropping an n-bomb without trouble.

Episode two confirms Luke is stronger now that he has had his second acid bath, but shotguns are still bad news for him.  I guess Nightshade is the name of the juice Tilda sells and that's why Bushmaster is the way he is.  I wonder if they'll make any allusions to her creating werewolves in the comics.  Sure, those stories are usually pretty cheesy but this show is usually pretty good at referencing cheesy comic stuff but making it work.  Reg E Cathey is still good as Luke's dad.

I'm not buying Misty's injury making her that much of a pariah on the force.  I'm sure she isn't the first police officer to get seriously injured in some way.  The hand/arm puns were a bit much too.

In not just about her injury it also the stuff with her partner that she's getting some of the blame for.  Also I'm liking it so far.  And I think that businessman that Mariah is working with is totally planning to rip her off and disappear.  At the very least he's gonna die without disclosing were he hid her money.

That's brought up once, but Bailey gives her a long discussion about how her lack of an arm is disturbing people around the precinct.  Scarffe seems to be an after thought.  Later, when she stands up to the officers, her entire speech is about her arm.

Finished episode three.  It's good to see Colleen again and apparently the MCU version of Mr Fish.  The Piranha Jones guy keeps popping up too, but I don't know him.  Anyway, the fight scenes are better this season.  I'm guessing they got a bigger budget this year.  That final scene between Claire and Luke was some of the heaviest shit ever seen in these kind of shows.  Normally, when comic book movies and TV shows get into relationship drama, it ends u being soap opera fodder but not this show.  Both Rosario and Mike Colter did a great job.

And now episode 4.  Luke just had one of the worst 24 hours of his life.  I get it that they want to show him at his lowest but I have a hard time believing that the average people in Harlem or ESPN hosts would treat that beatdown like a boxing match.  If a dude just unloads on Luke Cage like that, it's obviously a very powerful villain and everyone should be aware of the danger that's out there.  Anyway, I'm calling it now: 1) Luke will have coffee with Tilda before this seaosn is through and 2) Luke's experiment included Nightshade (especially since the comics Bushmaster underwent the same experiment as Luke, so this could be a nod to that).

Misty's a dumbass for turning down two-thirds pension tax-free. That's, what, sixty grand at least? Move somewhere cheaper than New York and live very comfortably.

That is all.

Misty dropping her groceries and just walking away from them had me saying "Dumbass!" out loud.

Also agree on Simone Missick being hot.
