Audience Reviews for Marvel's Luke Cage: Season 1

  • Jan 23, 2023
    Luke Cage: Season 1 is another Marvel show that has caught me by surprise. The story here is very well done and has me excited to see what is next In The Defenders.
  • Sep 18, 2022
    I really enjoyed this show and hope it gets picked up by Disney like Dare Devil did
  • Aug 21, 2022
    Easily better than Jessica Jones, but nowhere close to Daredevil.
  • Jul 29, 2022
    As boring as you can imagine.
  • Jun 07, 2022
    This first season is really good, it's kind of a backburner story, smaller scale than any of the other shows. However, the second villain is absolutely terrible. They don't build him up from the beginning, he just shows up with a random connection to the protagonist.

    TV Season Rating: 9/10

    PEAK and W! I really love this show
  • Apr 16, 2022
    With the Marvel money and a host of great actors its a wonder how this show falls so flat. I had very high hopes... I'm not sure what the central issue is (directing?) but I can tell you the writing needs work, the dialogue is mostly amateur, cinematography is weak, and this soundtrack everyone is raving about is good but off beat. The social message is coherent and translates well, but it needs the rest of the show to be on par. Since while I'm writing this its worth noting the show has already been canceled, what I have to say really doesn't matter but Luke Cage deserved better than this!

    Hope to see you In She Hulk Luke
