I don't know about you all, but the first episode of Black Lightning premiered last night on the CW and I am officially obsessed. It's giving me everything I want from a network that is already growing beyond its origins and I can't wait to see what happens next.
Natch, all of today's links revolve around a very specific theme (I am gobbling up all the Black Lightning takes, please and thanks):
- Black Lightning boldly addresses race and community issues head-on in its premiere. (Black Girl Nerds)
- Black Lightning is the superhero show television has been waiting for. (The Daily Beast)
- With Black Lightning, the CW’s universe of superhero shows is growing up. (io9)
- How Black Lightning will stand out from the other Arrowverse shows. (EW)
