Spoilers galore here!

  • What/who IS Luke Cage?
  • Luke Cage in the comics
  • Luke Cage, the Netflix character
  • Cottonmouth
  • The MUSIC/soundtrack (Can we PLEASE talk about that soundtrack? @soetzufit)
  • Diamondback
  • Shades. “I kinda got a “holding a torch for Mariah” vibe from him. Couldn’t get enough Shades. More Shades. @HoodieThirteen” (01:03:32)
  • Mariah
  • The women on this show! Misty Knight & Claire Temple
  • Do we really need to talk about “protection from superheroes” AGAIN?
  • The setting, ambiance etc.
  • After the death of Cotton Mouth, it has issues. The super bullet was rather lame. And Diamondback, who was always the great puppet master, just puts on a suit and comes fight Luke at the end in public? Really? Overall, I loved the series but I think Jessica Jones had better writing for the second half. Before that, I thought they were at least on par. @vosskah (01:23:22)
  • Jessica Jones and the treatment of the black characters in the show
