Trivia

Goofs

Behind the desk in Cottonmouth's office is a very fancy type of flat panel TV that actually mechanically extends from the wall and flips the screen so that one side is a TV monitor while the other is a painting or some other form of art. In some scenes throughout the first 6 episodes or so, there is a small black reading lamp that appears only when the "art-side" is facing out, almost as if the set dressers forgot there was a TV on the other side and that the lamp would have been knocked over if anyone ever turned on the TV.

Electrifying , Another Home run by Netflix
30 September 2016 | by From_the_FutureSee all my reviews

One of the best things about this show is that even though its similar to Daredevil, Jessica Jones it still feels fresh and new.

Mike Colter is very impressive as Luke Cage

Daredevil suffered a big deal in Season 2 because of lack of central villain , well Mahershala Ali stands out as Cottonmouth, He is remorseless, vicious, Complex and just amazing.

The rest of the cast has also done impeccable job.

The Music is again great, the setting of Harlem is also very enticing The Action is not overdone, and matches the setting

Luke Cage is on par with Daredevil, and It might even end up as best show of 2016 For Netflix
