I missed the pilot episode but I plan to watch the newest episode tonight. Currently, the show is 100% Certified Fresh on Rotten Tomatoes and some of the reviews are reassuring. Especially this one:

"Off the bat, it was shocking to me just how fresh this series is. It does not have cheesy dialog and scenes that would put it in the same wheelhouse as the likes of Arrow, The Flash and the other superhero series on The CW."


Just wondering if anyone else is interested.

Watched the second episode last night. It's really good and I can confirm the dialogue isn't cheesy or cliche. At most, there was a line I thought was genuinely funny towards the end when Black Lightning returned:

"I'll take the stairs. A brother needs all the exercise he can get."

I would go as far as to say it's probably one of the more realistic superhero adaptations.
