Honestly the Marvel shows are so much better than the films that it's actually kind of sad.

And Luke's relative invincibility isn't much of an issue because the stakes aren't about him but about everyone around him. It's more or less a Superman plot done right imo.

There are so many references in the show that I didn't pick up on at the time, but looked up later on and really made me appreciate what they did with it.

I don't know much about that cultural sphere; I need to listen more to that era of hip-hop.

Eh you can say that for Super Man too. It's actually not too unlike that.

I think the real problem is you need an appreciation for hood and hip hop culture to really like this show. I'm certain I'd like this show less if I didn't watch The Wire.

What I heard is that it doesn't have any fun action (that Daredevil has), nor is it as strong as Jessica Jones in terms of social commentary. The general criticism I've heard is that it's boring, doesn't have an identity as a show (as opposed to other Marvel shows) and sort of goes nowhere.

irl if you want a show about hiphop culture, Atlanta seems to be you're looking for. That's the word on the street, imho

I'll check it out.

Luke Cage kind of fizzled out towards the end so I can see the criticism being valid. I don't think it's a bad show at all though. I will watch season 2 too if it gets made.

I watched the pilot of Dirk Gently a couple days ago. It's pretty damn hilarious.

Quit this at s5 because it doesnt go anywhere and I ended up finding it to be a waste of time. Just a heads up!
