Critic reviews for Three Sevens: The Book of Thunder
As a show about a family superheroes in the making, Black Lightning has always been in a unique position to explore the cape genre in ways that set it apart from most other shows like it.
"The Book of Thunder" was another solid episode of this superhero drama. It's quickly solidified itself as one of the best shows on The CW. How can it top this episode?
From a thoughtful approach to ripped from the headlines events to racial identity, family drama and a pretty good action scene, this episode packed a lot in 60 minutes.
Of the many things that Black Lightning does well, and this is a show that has done very little wrong in its first six episodes, it gets the hunted superhero/police dynamic down really well.
"Three Sevens" is so deflating. It's not necessarily a bad episode of TV, but it is rather formulaic.
Every week, it seems, Black Lightning gives me a new reason to love it. This time, it's the fact that they managed to incorporate a story line about the white nationalist protests that rocked Charlottesville, Virginia, last summer.
