What to Watch: 10/09/2018

While our love for the CW’s Black Lightning may not quite be as pronounced as for a certain supernatural NBC comedy, we are excited enough for it that our proverbial slot machine of recommendations lands on three bars.

It’s the season two finale! Despite surviving last season’s attack, Pierce and his family are still in danger.

The Black Lesbian Superhero of our dreams takes the screen with the season two premiere!



  • Barry has a child; her name is Nora; her existence could cause time-travel troubles. He also has a new antagonist; his name is Cicada; he is played by Chris Klein; he will likely not be much of a help to our fleet-of-foot hero. And it all takes place in a land called The Flash season five premiere on The CW.
  • Do you like American music? We like all kinds of music. We like the American Music Awards on ABC … baaaybeeee. We also like host Tracee Ellis Ross too. And obscure and outdated musical references, obvs.
  • So, let’s make the next musical reference even more on-the-nose, yet awkwardly shoehorned-in: We love that basketball (to the hoop, yo). ESPN begins 62 baller stories across 10 episodes, in the eloquently titled Basketball: A Love Story.
