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.
This show has great material to work with and the premise should make for a great show. Unfortunately the script writing leaves a lot to be desired and the acting is sub par. The dialogue is awkward and unimaginative, and it feels like the script has just been recycled from another TV show. Hopefully it improves as the season progresses but so far it has been a disappointment with nothing setting it apart from any other show on TV right now.
