Has anybody watched Luke Cage yet? I'm slowly but surely working my way through it - I like to stare at Mike Colter (and Mahershala Ali, for that matter) but I'm finding the show a bit of a chore, honestly. Every episode feels three times longer than it is - I've only watched four episodes so far and it feels like very very little has happened. When my boyfriend sat down during the fourth episode, having not seen any of the previous ones, he asked me what he needed to know to catch up and there was literally one thing I could tell him.
It feels kind of like the superhero shows from my youth, like Wonder Woman and The Incredible Hulk, which were similarly overly plotty - you look back at them and it's a bunch of people sitting around yapping about absolutely nothing for long stretches of time. Daredevil (which I love) and Jessica Jones (which I have mixed feelings about) both felt more dynamic than that, but maybe I just like their cast of characters better? Nobody's really popping off the screen in Luke Cage's world. (I do wish they'd give Alfre Woodard something to do already.) That said...
ETA oh and here's the first trailer
for Iron Fist with Finn Jones!
