Black Lightning: The Complete First Season #Review

Warner Bros. Home Entertainment provided me with a free copy of the Blu-ray I reviewed in this Blog Post. The opinions I share are my own.

Black Lightning follows Jefferson Pierce (Cress Williams), a man wrestling with a secret. As the father of two daughters and principal of a charter high school that also serves as a safe haven for young people in a neighborhood overrun by gang violence, he is a hero to his community. Nine years ago, Pierce was a hero of a different sort. Gifted with the superhuman power to harness and control electricity, he used those powers to keep his hometown streets safe as the masked vigilante Black Lightning. Almost a decade later, Pierce’s crime-fighting days are long behind him…or so he thought. But with crime and corruption spreading like wildfire, and those he cares about in the crosshairs of the menacing local gang The One Hundred, Black Lightning returns — to save not only his family, but also the soul of his community.

I admit that I had never even heard of Black Lightning before this tv show even aired but it is a something that my husband and I would watch.  

We started watching the first episode on Friday and we were so hooked that we watched the first half of the show on Friday and if it weren't for the fact that we had a busy weekend we would have watched the rest on Saturday.

Anyway, this show was so good. It is action packed with great story, great acting and awesome effects. 

The season finale was ok but I was hoping for more.   

All in all I did enjoy the show. 

I am giving this a 4 out of 5.

Available for Digital Download June 11th

Change is afoot for Richard Hendricks and the rest of the Pied Piper gang as they bring in new staff, new digs, and new anxieties, while precariously teetering on the brink of success in Silicon Valley®: Season 5, available for Digital Download on June 11th. The latest release in this Emmy® Award-winning series includes eight, 30-minute episodes and explores new dynamics for the core cast, in a season that is “tighter and better than ever” (The Week).

Nominated for more than 30 Emmy® Awards and two Golden Globes, Silicon Valley enters its fifth season with Pied Piper on an upswing as the platform’s new peer-to-peer internet garnering buzz and looking poised to make a splash. However, leadership challenges, new faces in a new office, and the looming rivalry with Hooli CEO Gavin Belson threaten to shake Richard’s confidence.

Returning series regulars include Emmy®-nominee Thomas Middleditch as Richard Hendricks (Joshy, Godzilla King of Monsters), Zach Woods as Jared (“The Office,” The Post), Kumail Nanjiani as Dinesh (The Big Sick), Martin Starr as Gilfoyle (“Freaks and Geeks,” “Party Down”), Josh Brener as ‘Big Head’ (“Maron,” “Highly Gifted”), Amanda Crew as Monica Hall (Table 19, American Murderer), Matt Ross as Gavin Belson (“Big Love,” “American Horror Story”), Jimmy O. Yang as Jian Yang (upcoming Crazy Rich Asians) and Suzanne Cryer as Laurie Bream (The Fosters).


OK you all know by now that comedy shows are movies are not something I watch often because I am super picky when it comes to the genre. 

At first, when I started watching Silicon Valley I really wasn't into it and actually thought it was a stupid show but it grew on me.  Sometimes you just have to start from the very beginning and just keep watching a few episodes of some shows for them to actually grow on you. 

This season wasn't one of my favourite but it was good enough to keep me watching until the very end.  The season finale could have been a satisfying series finale but I won't spoil it for you in case you didn't watch it yet.  Lucky enough the show has been renewed for a sixth season and I am glad.

I am giving Silicon Valley a 4 out of 5.
