Black Lightning TV series
« on: September 08, 2016, 06:48:11 AM »
The next DC/Berlanti show appears to be Black Lightning.  Looks like FOX is ordering it for pilot production.

Just when it seems they all land on the same network, another interesting show pops up for another network.

I am very apprehensive about this: I have not had much any success with shows I like being on FOX.

Fox will cancel it halfway through and it'll also end up on CW for season 2.

All the stories I read about this earlier this week kept calling it a CW show.

You should probably put your bandit hat on now.

Yeah, FOX passed early, not long after this initial thread was made.  They still pursuing as people expect it to be CW Show #5

Hah didn't even make it that far.

The CW picked it up for a pilot shoot at least.

I love that the CW's basically become the unofficial 'Comic Book TV Show Adaptation' Channel if you throw in stuff like iZombie as well as their plethora of Superhero stuff.

This premiered this week.  A little different tone than the Arrowverse (and not supposed to be in it despite some of the same group involved) but I liked the premiere.

Hadn't realized they were taking the approach that Black Lightning is older and had been retired.  I enjoyed the first episode.

Anyone else watching this?  I really liked the first episode but haven't felt myself engaging in subsequent episodes.  I think it is the supporting cast.  Not really enjoying any of the supporting characters.  I feel like this has been my trend with the Berlanti shows.  Early in the series it is weak and eventually starts clicking.

I've watched every episode: it's my favorite CW superhero show.

Just watched the season finale: I loved it: my second favorite show on television this year, after Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.
