Creepy little garbage eaters



The completely computer generated city in this pilot is certainly a choice.

What the HELL? That's my cutting board.

So...it's going to be Painkiller Wick Cyberpunk 2077? Let's see how it plays out.

And with that final scene, I am in for a few episodes at least.

Yeah, 15 minutes in and it's looking bad. There's nothing enticing about this supporting crew. The Cyberpunk City is something super out there and out of place in the context of the rest of the DCCW (and might've made more sense if it was timeskipped to the Arrow and the Canaries future)

This whole season has been bad.

e: Though covid is probably mostly to blame.

Man, the Arrowverse's other backdoor pilots have at least bothered to be related to the series from which they're spawned. Like the Legends intro at least had Green Arrow and Flash doing poo poo.


Cyberpunk city looks like it's trying to be 50% Madripoor, 50% Wakanda

If LeVar Burton ever leaves Reading Rainbow, they so have to get Marvin "Krondon" Jones III as a replacement.

At least they explained what Val's powers are.

I'm surprised they did another Khalil cameo.

It's kind of been that way since mid-season 2. Ever since the Purdi/Sange arc. Like how Anissa moved out and into a massive apartment with a full on security AI off screen between episodes and it was never acknowledged at all.

That opening scene was brutal. So was the scene with Lynn in prison.

At least Tobias finally unleashed his master plan. If the final few episodes end up being terrible, I can just pretend this was the series finale. Everyone is dead, Tobias wins.

This season does seem to have a few too many plotlines running and this latest episode decided that all of them needed screentime for some reason. I was gonna say they didn't touch on LaLa's plot, but then I remembered he's concrete Han Solo atm. Man I hope he gets a better ending than that.

I definitely feels like they're rushing to the end now, for good or for ill. I think Covid probably forced them to rewrite certain scenes and possibly plotlines to limit the number of people on set and the BLM protests may have also prompted some ideas on new subplots or adjusting preexisting ones so the end result feels like a bit more of a mess than usual.

Have we seen this evil council of bad guys Tobias wants to join before? Seems a bit late to be introducing a new cabal of villains.

I don't think so? But even if they were already established, it's clearly been too long since we've seen them so you're definitely right.

It's a good thing Gambi's suits have built in plot armor

Black Lightning continues to have the best soundtrack on TV.

I'm still not super hot on the new Khalil show, but I do appreciate they are giving those guys more screentime after the backdoor pilot so it feels more natural for the spinoff.

It was definitely brought up last season or even in season 1 when Tobias tried to make his move against Lady Eve and take her spot.

Sassy Painkiller is the best. The rest of the episode was okayish, the shadow council featuring a cowboy wearing the cover I have on my tablecloth not so much.

Sassy Painkiller who mugs for a camera that isn't supposed to exist is really good and we need more of that and less mystic sage Khalil.

His supporting cast is also boring as crap. Just a bunch of dudes in the necessary roles and nearly no charm or character.

Mayor Whale lol that he stole the LaLa "statue" and put it in his own penthouse.

Just my speculation, but I thought that Tobias would get exposed and then Jeff would not only be cleared, but run for mayor so he could try to enact meaningful reform while also retiring Black Lightning.
