Critic reviews for The Book of Little Black Lies

Trust seems pretty hard to come by these days between the show's major players.

It's always great when Black Lightning takes a minute to slow and focus more on the Pierce family dynamics, if only because the show's cast has phenomenal chemistry

Black Lightning has continued to not feel like a traditional CW superhero show because the characters don't behave stupidly for the sake of a questionable agenda.

Leave it to Black Lightning, the best superhero show on TV right now (yep, I said it) choose again and again to prioritize emotional truth over plot mechanics.

Gambi even says one child he remembers hunting down for the ASA is still alive. This presents an interesting opportunity to have more powered characters on the series in future episodes.

"The Book of Little Black Lies" was another subpar episode of this CW drama. It started off so well, so it's a real shame to see the show already struggling to keep up the pace.
