I read that it only got picked up for 13 episodes (down from normal 22 episodes). Also, it won't air until the summer of 2019. That's a long time between new episodes for viewers of the show to stick with the show. This might be the last season.

I missed a couple episodes of Black Lighting and have the rest on DVR. On demand is charging for the episodes I missed and they have yet to show any re-runs.

Hard to get excited about a show they won't let me watch.

Upscale white-acting black people living in the hood. I like the show and think the women are sexy. Trying to understand what the "Shadow Board" is and why the white guy was dressed like "The Shadow" in one episode. I don't know enough about "The Shadow" to know if that's his alter-ego. I get a little depressed seeing the early episodes because the news anchorwoman on the first half of the season died in real life before the season aired. She'd been a local news anchor on Atlanta television for over a decade.

Oh goodie!
Charmed is back.

Fierce, funny, feminist reboot of the original series and, similar to the original series, focuses on three sisters in college who discover they are witches.

These sisters seem to be non-white and ethnically diverse even among themselves.

I finally quit watching this. The writing is so bad that I can't sit through an episode. Daisy is cute eye candy, but she's not enough to make all the bad set designs and bad plots watchable.


I think the show is fantastic.


The British accents annoy me the most. The dark settings annoy me the second most. The bad writing is about third on the list. I liked all of the Ghost Rider appearances. I don't care what the plot is when you have a guy walking around with a flaming skull. That's just cool to see.


Hi Man.

Imagine how we feel when we hear US accents in films/tv about "Merrie Engand" such as King Arthur and Robin Hood and all the other English and European folk tales and myths that Hollywood has bastardised over the years.

That's fair enough. You can't watch a US show these days without seeing a person speaking with a British accent. There are studies that find that a British accent sounds more intelligent to Americans. The problem is that too many shows are featuring British actors and it is disproportionate to the number of British people actually in the US. Imagine if you turned on the TV and every show had a Jamaican person. You might get tired of it. I like shows like Death in Paradise, but if I turn on Agents of SHIELD, I'm scratching my head trying to figure out why an American Intelligence organization is hiring more people from outside the US. I'm also perplexed why shows like Father Brown don't feature young people. Everyone seems to be over 60. I too am tired of all the CW superhero shows feature some gay romantic crisis. I prefer a logical balance, not a skewed agenda.

My born and raised in Cincinnati, hillbilly wife can not understand British actors on TV. Unless they change their voices like the guy who plays Rick in The Walking Dead.

I have to translate for her often. Ha Ha

I agree. Only about a third of people in the US are white men but they are all over the place on TV. It just isn't realistic.

Just watched the season ending for Arrow.... HORRIBLE! I don't watch superhero shows to see losers. CW likes to throw cliffhangers at the end of every season. The cliffhangers don't make me want to watch the next season. They make me want to quit watching the show entirely. I know the writing is bad, so I'm confident that all his problems at the end of this season will be resolved by the second episode next season.

In all honesty, Green Arrow is as bad or worse than the villains. He deserved his fate.

Shows me two things.
1) Acting opportunities are more abundant here in the US (and maybe pay more).
2) Actors from over the pond and Canadians are more talented than those here in the US.

The Canadian Govt. funds the arts, so it doesn't rely on the private sector or profits as an objective to get a project green lit. I'm sure there is a huge financial incentive for British actors to apply for jobs in the US.

Any word on Cloak & Dagger? I've seen a couple of promos, then nothing. I'm hoping it presents well w/ good writing; Cloak & Dagger are two of my favorite, IMHO under-utilized, heroes.

That bites!

Days after renewing iZombie for Season 5, The CW has belatedly announced it will also be the last in the show’s run. With the announcement coming after renewal, the show has therefore been canceled with no Season 6.

I always felt the characters were lame. So it doesn't interest me at all.
