Luke Cage: Old Time TV

by

Luke Cage

So I just finished episode three of the new Luke Cage Netflix series and am once again grateful that I don’t look at previews or spoilers.  It’s not what I expected at all. Instead of nonstop action. It’s a slow, slow burn, with lots about the characters and the complicated motivations. In a way it is old school TV, In that it takes its time and relies on characters and visuals, and doesn’t need to fill up every minute with insistent soundtrack or threatening visuals or action scene after actions scene. It actually trusts the audience to understand which things are important.
