The Akils pushed the boundaries of superhero network television.

It's probably going down as one of my favorites in the series, if for no other reason than it's incredibly well balanced for all three Pierce women.

The Book of Consequences: Chapter Three: Master Lowry, brings a little more superhero action to the forefront. This season hasn't been boring in any way, but it is a bit of a relief to see the main man back in action.

Few shows -- network or otherwise -- make me feel as much as Black Lightning does, and this was particularly true in the final scene of tonight's episode.

Oh man, I missed this show. The music, the portrayal of Black families and our communities is so spot on - it's not only fun, but poignant, as well. Sure, it's the CW, so expect some cheese, but all in all, Black Lightning is the sleeper superhero hit.

Black Lightning continues to be an engaging character-led series. There are a few storylines introduced, but the mystery briefcase seems to be the MacGuffin that will propel this season forward.
