So...anybody else watch any of "Luke Cage" yet?
I won't spoil anything here, but I wasn't too sure what to think during the first episode. It was kind of slow...felt a little "off" to me and I wasn't sure I liked it until the final few minutes or so. But the 2nd episode was really good and the third blew me me away. The pacing, music, and character development remind me of a Tarantino film - which is funny, because a while back Tarantino wanted to direct a Luke Cage movie, so I suppose it's fitting.
It's so good that in one episode something epically, almost comically ridiculous happens - it was almost completely out of place, and I laughed out loud...but it still worked for me. You can argue that based on what had been established in the story it was feasible...but it still seemed a little extreme to me. But, we can talk about that once people catch up - and highly recommend that you do.
Anyway, I'm eager to see where it goes from here. I'm definitely hooked. Sweet Christmas.
