Luke Cage Season 3: Sweet Christmas

Luke Cage is back and boys and girls I have looked forward to his return. I have not been disappointed. Okay is it perfect, no but showrunner Cheo Hodari Coker  created more than just a super-hero show. Season 3 deals with family, revenge, justice, accepting who you are and relationships.

Luke Cage (Mike Colter) is back and coming to accept that his role as the protector the streets of Harlem. Those streets are about to get crowded as John ‘Bushmaster’ Mclver (Mustafa Shakir)comes to get revenge on Mariah Dillard (Alfre Woodard). Many years ago the Stokes, Mariah Dillard’s maiden name, took what belong to both the Stokes and Mclver, Bushmaster Rum. Bushmaster seeks revenge and plans to make Mariah Stokes pay for what her family has done.

That folks is the A story but season 2 of Luke Cage has so many other layers. Mercedes “Misty” Knight(Simone Missick) struggles with the loss of her arm and being back on the force. Rosario Dawson returns as Claire Temple and her relationship with Luke is tested.  Luke feels the weight of Harlem on his shoulders and that slowly begins to chip away his and Claire’s relationship. Theo Rossi once again plays Hernan “Shades” Alvarez a character that you hate but love to see on the screen.

Introduced in Season 2 are Gabrielle Dennis as Tilda Johnson daugther of Mariah Dillard (Alfre Woodard). In what I consider one of the best scenes in the series is Mariah tells Tilda about her real father. Alfre Woodard gives a amazing performance here.  Tilda plays well off Alfre and you can feel both their pain. Also we are introduced to Mustafa Shakir as Bushmaster. I very capable match for Luke Cage and a very good job from Mustafa Shakir. Also the show has the final performance of Reg E. Cathey. If you don’t know the name you will know his face. Reg give a very heartfelt and touching  performance as Luke’s father.

Okay so the above was my attempted at being a reviewer. That was ewwww. Now this is really my review.

I love Season 2 of Luke Cage. I will be honest. I read some other reviews to try and make this article a well written review. But dam they are all over the place. Some critics loved it. Other thought it was poop. Well folks my advice is just watch it. Make up your own minds but damn give this a view. Don’t binge it, well I don’t recommend it. Take you time. Savior it, ingest it and drink it in slowly. There are performances that need to not be rushed through. Lines of dialogue that you will not remember because you need to see it all in one sitting. Mike Colter leads a great cast of actors.

Jessica Henwick(Collen Wing) shows up and her and Misty have some kicking ass fun in a bar. Cool as shit.

Buy far Luke Cage is my favorite superhero series on TV right now. Oh shit the music. Once again the music for the show is brilliant. I enjoyed all of it. Some of the rap lyrics was a little raw but hey I am a fat middle age white guy. But I did Shazam a few of those songs.

I could go on and on about different aspects of the series but shit that be a long ass read. So finally, yeah I know to long a article, but pull up a chair on Friday. You will enjoy Season 2 and if not, talk to the hand.

Marvel’s Luke Cage – Season 2 Official Trailer

“Can one man save a community? And in his struggle to do so, will he find himself consumed by the very darkness he is fighting against? As a new VILLAIN rises, and a QUEEN takes the throne in HARLEM, cracks begin to form in the once unbreakable HERO…”

Marvel’s Luke Cage

The bullet proof man, Luke Cage(Mike Colter)is back and protecting Harlem. Claire Temple (Rosario Dawson), also returns and appears to be acting as an conscience for Luke in this season. Misty Knight (Simone Missick) is back also with prosthetic arm that she has  in the comics. I wonder if any mention that she gets her new arm from Tony Stark????  Mariah (Alfre Woodard) is clearly up to no good once again and tiring to gain more control of Harlem. The premiere episode of the second season is directed by Lucy Liu.

Season 2 of Netflix’s Luke Cage will be hitting your TV screen June 22.
