Figured I'd give Luke Cage a try. Two episodes in and it's kind of a snore fest. Nothing really happens at all. Hard to take Theo Rossi seriously after being a fucking pussy rat on SAMCRO and Remy from House of Cards as the HNIC? I dunno, not really buying it.
Agreed with rsx, a 70's setting would have been killer. I actaully though it was the 70's during the opening scene until a car drove by.

I checked out ep 1 of Cage but man the show is so goofy yet seems to want to take itself so seriously. It also looks cheaply made in a way. Maybe just poorly directed, I don't know. Anyway, I think these superhero shows and movies have to be over the top ridiculous. Agents of Shield, Gotham, Supergirl, Guardians, Deadpool, etc. Silly fun.
The "serious" ones just come off as kind of cringey and embarrassing. I remember laughing out loud when they revealed Daredevil's costume, it was so bad.
I agree I wanted to like this show, but it just didn't grab me, I'm on the last episode.
Why did they think it would make sense to have Cage basically beat up and barely able to fight for the last episodes of the season? I was getting tired of how emo the actor playing him acts, I felt like I waited the whole season to see Luke actually kick some ass, which he rarely ever did. A super-powered rifle with bullets that can hurt him? Since when? He's supposed to be bullet proof, what a stupid premise.
At least in Daredevil we got to see him kick some ass almost every episode.
