Multiple characters refer to the police in the series as being from "Harlem PD." In reality Harlem is simply a neighborhood on the island of Manhattan and thus would be patrolled by the New York Police Department or NYPD.
Harlem has NYPD police precincts (the 26th, 28th and the 32nd ), not its own police department. See more »
This series is model for how to do a cultural show without alienating any group.
Unlike pathetic and ruined shows like DC's "Black Lightening", and Marvel's two other loser super power series, "Impulse", and "Cloak and Dagger", Luke Cage writers don't hatefully target/blame any specific group, or whine about any snowflake social pc issues. It's just brilliant action and a smooth plot.
Extremely enjoyable to watch, Season 2 better than 1, I've upped my rate from a 6 to an 8.
I just hope there's not another two years to get Season 3!
