Critic reviews for Lawanda: The Book of Hope
It's Blaxploitation for the new millenium and I've ever seen anything quite like it.
Only two episodes in and Black Lightning is already establishing itself as one of the best superhero shows on TV. Its unapologetic blackness both celebrates and lectures the culture while never losing sight of its comic book origins.
If this episode taught us anything it's that the show is undeniably concerned with tug and pull of love and heroism.
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.
"Lawanda: The Book of Hope" was a stellar follow-up to the show's successful series premiere. It's still fresh, exciting and shocking.
