I thought the first episode was really strong. Deals with much heavier topics than the other network superhero shows, I think it's more in the league of the Netflix marvel series. My one complaint (keeping in mind this is only the pilot) was that the main villain seemed weak. Soundtrack was at a whole other level.

I don't remember Freeland being one of the DC cities in the comics, but I was surprised to see San Francisco and Oakland mentioned in the news report at the beginning of the episode since usually DC doesn't mention actual cities.

Well...I enjoyed the first episode, and am hoping for a bit more of a sense of humor in the future.  Sticking with it for now.

Reviving this topic to post some photos from the Black Lightning signing at SXSW:

It was super cool (although the weather wasn't!). We also attended the Jim Lee/Frank Miller signing, but I didn't get any pictures (it was a little more rushed and packed).

edit: For some reason, the picture of the signing won't come up. I guess you can only do one instagram pic.
