Did You Know?


Attempting to tie in with the Arrowverse led to several problems, as what it refers to as "Earth One" and "Earth Two" cannot be the same worlds that the other Arrowverse shows refer to by those terms: The ASA may have strong pull on Black Lightning's Earth, but the idea that they could get away with anything they're doing on the same Earth-1 that has an Argus, let alone numerous superheroes, doesn't sound right.

The Ghosts Of Jennifer Past, Present and Future
10 December 2019 | by PurpleCrayon2014See all my reviews

Confession: I do not follow Black Lightning and I do not follow any show on the CW - my only reason for seeing this particular episode relates to the connection to the Crisis on Infinite Earths storyline. The most positive of my experience watching Chapter Four: Earth Crisis was that the Black Lightning series includes actor Bill Duke - a powerful and distinguished actor and it was a pleasure to watch him perform. Actually that was the only positive and sadly I won't be back to see Bill Duke is any further Black Lightning episodes man, this show sucks. The writing is atrocious, the performances are stale and lack passion, the production on par with the other CW 'Crisis' episodes I've seen-which is amateurish and lacking in experience. The James Remar character needs to be killed off immediately as this is the worst performance I have ever seen him give - and James Remar has given decades of bad performances. If you are also here for this episode as it relates to 'Crisis', skip it, but know this episode is connected to the complete 'Crisis' story.
