To say that Netflix's Luke Cage was filled with surprises is an understatement. From the betrayals to the relationships and, finally, to the characters being killed, Marvel and Netflix have once again done it. Sure, the movie wasn't filled with the action of Daredevil and it didn't have the psychological heft of Jessica Jones. But it more than made up for that with its awesome villains and twists.
As we got used to with the other Netflix and Marvel collaborations, this show is filled with memorable quotes and monologues, whether delivered by the hero or by the villains. At the same time, the relative calmness of the first season is disrupted (magnificently, I might add) by moments of real tension, which makes for an interesting pace for the show. Some characters might seem a bit too expositional at first, but Luke Cage was certainly worth the while.
Furthermore, it is useless to say that the central theme of Luke Cage touches on one of the most important movements in today's US – I guess you know what I'm talking about (Bulletproof Love).
So what were the best moments from Luke Cage's first season? Obviously, if you haven't seen the show just yet, you might want to skip this one. It's filled with spoilers!
