    Is there any chance that this show won't go down the familiar route of that the other Berlanti/CW/DC shows have? I don't know much about Black Lightning, but I'd be willing to give the show a try if it's actually something different compared to Arrow, Flash, Supergirl and LoT.

    Probably not.

    I'll give it a shot, but i don't know how long i'll stick with it if it's one of those crime noir shows.

    The neon color lighting streaks on the costume looks cheap; like something from the 90s

    Yeah, I don't like the neon on the front. But the rest looks pretty good. Seems pretty no-nonsense.

    I love the story premise and I'm all for it 100%. A retired hero being forced to come out of retirement, and then finding out that his children inherited his abilities? That's a set of problems and plot that hasn't been done on the other shows so far. And a real family of superheroes? Yes, please.

    I know the Flash technically has a family of heroes, but in the flash's case it's a little bit different as seeing they're not exactly related to each other.

    However I agree that the glowing bits seem a little silly. The arrow and the Flash's outfits seem far more practical and sensible in comparison...at least they'll be able to sneak around in the dark and you won't see them coming... unlike black lighting. lol.
    It also makes me wonder if we'll see other black heroes cameo on the show too in later seasons. Vixen, Static Shock, Black Vulcan, etc. On one hand it could be really great... but then again it could face the same problems the Flash had, of there being way too many speedsters on the show.

    Looks interesting, I love the DC shows so I'll watch, I wonder what Earth he will be on, Arrow/Flash Earth or Supergirls? I never read Black Lightning so I know little about the characters so this will be nice for me to go into this show without any preconceived notions on what to expect.
