This is so true it actually hurts.

January 2018

The CW is known to either ruin shows or cancel them. If a show is not bringing in HUGE numbers, they cancel it. Doesn't matter if they are making any profit from it, they want shows to bring in HUGE profits right from the start. If the show dips in views a few times, the show gets canceled, sometimes they cancel shows before the 1st season even ends.

That's why I'm not even getting into this show, I'm not going to watch it for them to cancel it just like all the other good shows that I liked and got canceled.

I lost my faith in the CW awhile ago.

Always! Great TV shows get ruined while horrible shows last for years. 🙈

@SoyRiggar
It's still pretty bad.

January 2018

Be sure, sis, they will find the way..

January 2018

Even first episode was not that great, going for second one. I hope, in the end, it will become a sucess.

January 2018

I was watching the show for Jennifer aka China McClain but I fell in love with the show

February 2018

The first episode was designed to really draw you in. The ones after haven't really lived up to the high standards set

April 2018

Hope it doesn't turn like the rest of the CW's DC franchise.

January 2018

I loved it. It's new and refreshing and it's dealing with real problems that actually need attention. I am so very intrigued to see what happens next. It was an amazing start.

Finally! I can't believe how long it took tv showtime to add this show. I've been checking for weeks! Would've added it myself if I knew how. Anyway, saw the trailer and it seems amazing. I didn't know what I was expecting but I was pleasantly surprised by it & since it looks like we're possibly getting two heroes I'm so very excited. Can't wait for it to premiere. And I'm so disappointed at the lack of buzz over here, what gives people?

Sandra🌸 I checked & couldn't find an exact date but it will probably be a mid-season show as it isn't in the CW Fall line-up.

It's super easy to add new shows.
You just need to create an account on the TVDB database, add the show you want and it will be added on TVST in the next 24 hrs.

I am so looking forward to seeing this show.

Black Lightening not gonna be in Arrowverse, for SEASON 1, like Supergirl in his 1st season !

November 2017

Sorry, but I hope they dont crossover. This show seems to be aiming to another style and depth completelly

January 2018

They want to try without crossing over with the Arrowverse. They can eventually do it later like in season 2

February 2018

The show may feature Green Lantern though

Blague à part, BL est ridicule mais TD rattrape le coup.
Ce qui sauverait vraiment la série c'est un scénario un peu original, parce qu'on est dans le cliché épisode après épisode.

@JeromeVallée ils expliquent dans un épisode que les faisceaux lumineux de son costume font un sorte que lorsqu’on le regarde; il brille tellement quand arrive pas à le reconnaître

That moment when Anissa hit the guy and it took like a second for the guy to fly away.

It's really bad! I can't understand why there are so many good comments!! 😑😑

March 2018

Do you watch any superhero show? They are all corny and cheesy. Doesn't make it bad. Make it corny and f. cheesy for christ sake! Even if we do not consider the social critics this show passes on in every single episode, the writing is good. Like really good. The plot isnt something extraordinary, but the execution is nice. The performances are good too! Is hard to keep a straight face when talking hero stuff! Remember kate cassidy as black canary? She had several scenes in arrow where, even though she is a good actress she didn't sell it. The whole cw have a butch of actors who can't sell superhero stuff right. But I digress. In the end what I wanted to say was, this is a good show, you are entitled to your opnion, but maybe I shed somelight on why it has many good comments. Because is a good show! thats why

March 2018

And how can people around Black Lightning can't tell it's Jefferson?? The cover he has on his suit is stupid, it doesn't hide anything from the face except the eyes. Not only about the look of Black Lightning, the screenplay is also bad, terrible storyline. Come on, why so many people say it's the best show. Bluh. I stop watching it right now after 6 episodes I just realized how much time I wasted on this. 😂

March 2018

Frongfrance exactly
They did it exactly like the comic
That's a sad disguise 😂

March 2018

Maia yep I do watch superhero shows. A lot actually, but it's normal because people give lots of bad comments about shows I thought was damn good. But at the end we all have our opinions so Yh 🙌

March 2018

The only show in my life I stopped watching (that too after the pilot episode itself)

March 2018

saurabh lol when a show is bad I watch it with the intention of it will get better 😂 but most times they keep repeating the same mistakes so I learned to quit now

April 2018

Thank you, finally! This show is the worst...

May 2018

I can't decide whether Inhumans show or this is the worst superhero series. But after watching episode 13, well half of it actually, I decided to quit before it was too late.

June 2018

Must be the most overrated show I have seen in a long time. The acting is terrible. The storylines are predictable.

June 2018

Maia I've seen all the super hero TV shows and yes, you make allowances for a bit of outdated cheese where the show pays homage to it's original comics. But most of the recent comic TV show adaptations have tried to bring them forward and updated them. They have also tried to develop the villains as well as the heros. So my main issues with black lighting is,
The acting is really poor
The storyline is obvious and stereotypical and has no imagination
Tobias Whale is the most boring villain of all time
The whole thing reminds me of a bad episode of smallville from about 20 years ago

There are so many more issues that I don't have the energy to rant about.

September 2018

Another show I stopped watching after the first 10 min. The plot was so random the only thing good about the series are the effects.

September 2018

Janet lol
I wish I could do that! I watch really bad shows and I finish them. For some reason I think I want them to become better and I don't give up.

You guys don't know amazing until you get your eyes checked this show is amazing

DC took the ‘Luke Cage’ blueprint and brought it to ‘Black Lightning ‘... And it’s a great start to the show because of it! Don’t ruin it, CW...🤨

Oui j'ai cru comprendre ça mais j'espère que si il y a une saison 2 (je m'inquiète pas à ce sujet) j'espère qu'on aura le droit à un gros crossover avec les 5 séries !

Ils vont attendre voir si la série est bien accueillie. Si il y a une saison 2, alors oui il y aura sûrement des crossovers.

C'etait ecrit : Lightning ne fera pas partie du Arrowverse, cet univers télévisuel créé par Greg Berlanti autour du personnage d’Oliver Queen. Une décision surprenante, surtout quand on sait combien les patrons de la chaîne tiennent aux super-crossovers qui ramènent en masse les fans de chaque show.

September 2017

Il a été annoncé que la saison 1 sera sans crossover pour que les spectateurs découvrent et reste concentré sur l'histoire de la famille. Par contre pour la saison 2 ils ne sont pas fermés au crossovers ^^
