A great, great season, that really puts the focus on Harlem this time around.

This cast is as beautiful as they are charismatic.

Bloated, disheveled story but a super soundtrack and performance by Reg E. Cathey.

It takes a season for Luke to find some sense of certainty, for better or for worse. The next step of his journey may be the most fascinating. But it could have come a whole lot sooner.

Judging from the second season's carefully paced opening, with unresolved family tensions quivering in all directions, it seems this show won't be making the same mistake twice.

Jun 22, 2018 | Full Review…

There's just too much stuff to really do justice to any of it, and that lack of focus makes it tough to latch on to anything the season is trying to do.

The one character that is disserviced is Cage himself, but even then a lot of episodes in the middle he's fine. Overall, a strong entry in the MCU, just not a great one.

Feb 3, 2019 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

Luke Cage Season 2 isn't easily watchable, but it is enjoyable for the most part, and he remains the most consistently written and utilized character in the NYC centred Marvel universe.

Jan 22, 2019 | Rating: 6/10 | Full Review…

[The] second season may or may not repeat that feat, but it sure packs a lot more punch.

Dec 27, 2018 | Full Review…

Your 11th grade English teacher is proud that you care about the show's themes. With all the subtlety of one of Luke Cage's punches, the show beats its messages into the audience.
