I really liked the pilot. I felt like they did a great job with the family dynamic.

The BL suit is great but I'd prefer it if Pierce just used that three-piece suit for the rest of the season, thank you very much.

Really, really good start. Am super hyped for this now.

Yeah, he looked more bad rear end in the three-piece suit than his power suit.

So you've never seen Kevin Hart. Got it.

I actually saw someone refer to Kevin Hart in Jumanji as "token black guy". How the gently caress do you not know who Kevin Hart is?

e: Plus he was hilarious. He and Black Jack made the movie.

I continue to be really impressed with the soundtrack. There are way more needle drops than you see in most network shows.

Yeah, I really enjoy the music so far. I like the tone they've taken with it.

The only thing that bugged me from the first two episodes is that Lala was basically an evil(er) version of Charlie Murphy's characer from Black Jesus.

Well the guy lasted two episodes, the writers probably didn't put a ton of effort into him.

If it's anything like the suit in the newest comics, the glowing bits are supposedly charged by his own ambient electric field (and I guess it's implied he can affect electricity around him).

I hope we get some sly reference to his original costume


My guess without knowledge of the comics is that the suit is powered by his abilities and he's powered by electrical sources around him. I'm guessing there will be many episodes where he's weakened by lack of nearby power sources but overcomes it by being a huge intelligent badass anyway.

Also how the gently caress do these people not instantly recognize Jeff when he shows up somewhere in his civvies, threatens them, leaves, and then shows up again 20 minutes later wearing that same beard, a super suit, and a pair of lovely sunglasses that donít actually disguise his face?

Like, I love this show so much, and itís otherwise perfect, but Iíll just never get over that one.

That's the same type of suspension of disbelief that virtually all super hero shows have relied on, Superman/Clark Kent being the most egregious example.

Unlike the Marvel Netflix shows where it starts out with something similar (eg. Matt trying to balance being Daredevil with running a law firm) but then starts floundering, loses its way and tries to recover by just throwing ninjas everywhere. Hopefully this show will actually stick to its central thesis - that societal problems are incredibly complex and can't be solved overnight or by one person, no matter how many ninjas he punches.

But have you considered that maybe he just hasn't punched enough ninjas?

Seeing James Remar in fatherly roles is kinda weird for me because I've always only ever thought of him as Ajax from The Warriors.

I hope they explain why they are just keeping those powered kids on ice. Doesn't seem like they are experimenting on them so why does the vice principal lady have a quota?


He's competent and a good cop. Outlook not so good.

Seeing as all the dealers in town have been having a hard time getting green lightning but they were able to plant a big bag in his car, my guess is they're using those kids to manufacture it somehow.

There is also the weird thing were Green Light has the potential to cause super powers, and they are looking for that, making it even stranger.

Well if they are using their previous captives from decades ago to make GL and they're starting to die off, that explains why they're just now starting to kidnap more kids with powers to replace them.

Given the whole government link it's probably tied to some super-soldier type of program.

Now I feel silly for speculating on comic book story lines.

No, I mean, how did no one see them plant the evidence? They weren't being particularly stealthy.

They didn't necessarily plant the poo poo in the car at the school and the small bag scene is easy to palm while searching.

I understand the point even without that particular scene, I just happened to miss the original toss of the bag into the trunk. Even without that the character of that person and his standing in the community would've been enough to call bullshit on the whole thing. Putting something in someone's car isn't that hard to do.
