Spoiled billionaire playboy Oliver Queen is missing and presumed dead when his yacht is lost at sea. He returns five years later a changed man, determined to clean up the city as a hooded vigilante armed with a bow.
When a sabotaged experiment gives him super strength and unbreakable skin, Luke Cage becomes a fugitive attempting to rebuild his life in Harlem and must soon confront his past and fight a battle for the heart of his city.
So far none of the characters seem to be that interesting. The acting is okay but far from outstanding. It's your classic mutant rebels VS government agency show. Maybe it's because we've already seen too much super-powered stuff but when a pilot shows you about half a dozen superpowers and none of those scenes are even remotely "cool" then you know this show probably won't excite you. My prediction is that the show is too boring to watch every week but the story will probably get too complicated to miss a few episodes every now and then. My advise would be to watch the pilot and make up your own mind or just skip the show altogether. This definitely won't be a show people talk about anyway.
