Critic reviews for Lawanda: The Book of Hope
Lawanda: The Book of Hope was an encouraging second episode that shows Black Lightning's mature and complex look at family and responsibility. We need more of this please.
One of the things I love most about Black Lightning is its humor.
In Black Lightning, the superhero takes on institutional racism, gang violence, and police harrassment and brutality. It's hard not to feel like every other on-screen superhero is playing by a different, less potent set of rules.
The writing continues to keep the story grounded in real-world scenarios and the methodical development of the supporting cast is also worthy of praise.
This episode alone racked up quite a body count, but I'm most interested to see how Jefferson's dynamic with the police evolves now that he's fully back as Black Lightning.
