Luke Cage

The third show in the Netflix-Marvel street-level superhero series. This outing is different than the rest. It’s gritty, includes action, with cultural cameos in the forms of landscape, people, references and dialogue that simply “gets it.” The show follows the evolution of Luke Cage, a man with super strength and unbreakable skin caused by a sabotaged experiment. Cage is trying to live a quiet life in Harlem, New York — until he is pulled out of the shadows and forced into a battle for his city. Along the way, Cage cannot avoid confronting his past, which he has worked hard to bury.  Luke Cage delivers the goods. For the guys out there it’s got some great lessons in manhood.
