The Premise: High school principal Jefferson Pierce, who retired from his superhero persona Black Lightning nine years ago after seeing the effects it had on his family, is forced to become a vigilante again when the rise of the local gang called the 100 leads to increased crime and corruption in his community of Freeland.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: Overall, I pretty much enjoyed the first season but if you read the comics you will know that he didn’t really have too many prominent villains. Though I read the first series that was published, I preferred him as a member of “Batman and The Outsiders”. That series was a constant read for me and I guess my main issue is that this show exists outside of the Arrowverse. Listen up WBT, enough with the multiverse on television. Give us one Earth where all of these heroes and villains are facing off together. Maybe the big crossover this season will find them bringing both Black Lighting and Supergirl into the same space. I’d like that. What about you? Do you watch “Black Lightning”? Will you give it a shot? Chime in down below.
