Terrible start to a great show. Luke Cage Season 2
22 June 2018 | by ObbysSee all my reviews

This was an absolute horrendous viewing experience. The cinematography was cringe and unpleasant at best. The dialogue was cringe and cliched. The way characters would interact and react made NO SENSE, when compared to the previous season. The composition of shots is the quality of YouTube skits, the foreshadowing is laid on thick.. And yet a lot of things in the episode just happens with no explanation or continuity. It seems like the talented actors did the best with what they were instructed to do, but it almost seem like they too are confused with their characters actors. It's an absurd awkward feeling of out of place.

I hope Lucy Liu refrains from further directing work in some of my favorite shows.

Just because of season 1 I'll give this show one or two more episodes to get rolling and maybe get decent.. It's more likely that the show is dead - just like the other Marvel Netflix shows (with the exception of Jessica Jones, which is still an excellent show).
