    Upto episode 10 over weekend, if it wasn't for the soundtrack and the Jamaican guys I think I'd be struggling to get through it.

    So I think I wasn't a massive fan of the first season, I have quite a lot of shows queued up now, is season 2 worth a watch then? Or give it a miss?

    Really enjoyed the first until the mid point, then it fell on it's ass and was a real struggle to get through the rest of the season. Is there anything in season 2 that comes close to being good as any scenes from the first starring Mahershala Ali?

    Finished it last night and not sure where they'll go for S3 regarding Luke's ark now he's 'on top' Mariah's daughter I don't think has the chops to be the new 'big bad' next season.

    Soundtrack was great all the way through.

    Would maybe edit your post as its a bit 'spoilery'.

    Struggling with season 2, the first season was alright up to the last few, this one has started slow and with those jamaiJam guys im finding it hard to hear what they are saying, I'm only about 4/5 in but feel like I might not bother with the rest.

    This season's episodes are named after the Pete Rock & CL Smooth songs.

    I've only watched S02E01-02 but it's not really grabbing me so far. The Jamaica accent is really hard to understand from all the characters. However, what really annoyed me was the near constant use of the N-word throughout. It seemed to be every other word in the first episode and was really jarring. It also just screams hypocrisy at me that a mainstream program like Luke Cage can use it with abandon but if it's used once in a 'white' show then it's "To Twitter my outraged minions!"

    Had no problem understanding the Jamaican accents at all.

    I've been bingeing on this since finishing Jessica Jones and it's awesome. Bushmaster is possibly now one of my fave "villains" ever. Love the Capoeira stuff and the actor playing him is really intense.

    Great that Netflix are taking the initiative making shows like this with proper, well rounded characters and stories rather than the ridiculous practice of shoehorning particular demographics into existing characters.
