Black Lightning: Season 3 Reviews

October 29, 2019
What stands out about the episode are the small touches here and there that make the way Freeland's falling into chaos feel, for lack of a better phrase, grounded in reality.

It's time for more Black Lightning! And so far, the season 3 premiere is giving me hope that this outing will avoid some of the mistakes of last season.

Although this year's Black Lightning has a very different feel to the previous one (which itself was a change from the tone of Season 1), subplots from the show's first two years continue throughout.

The one issue with the time jump was the sharp tonal shift. Don't get me wrong, the added tension and drama is well-appreciated to shake things up. However, the plot points between where the story left off and now are vastly different.

I hope this season maintains focus and doesn't find itself branching out too far away from its central conflicts. If the following episodes consistently operate at this level, this will be an exciting season to watch.

The first episode of the third season is just as politically charged as previous episodes, but this time around things feel more relevant, more attuned to this specific time and place
