Goofs

Behind the desk in Cottonmouth's office is a very fancy type of flat panel TV that actually mechanically extends from the wall and flips the screen so that one side is a TV monitor while the other is a painting or some other form of art. In some scenes throughout the first 6 episodes or so, there is a small black reading lamp that appears only when the "art-side" is facing out, almost as if the set dressers forgot there was a TV on the other side and that the lamp would have been knocked over if anyone ever turned on the TV.

Nice!
11 August 2020 | by RobScott-13See all my reviews

Luke Cage is another Netflix Marvel show that is outstanding! While not quite as good as The Punisher or Daredevil, it's still a very good show that is absolutely worth watching! Most of these bad reviews are from the same 3 type of people. 1) other streaming services that rates everything Netflix does low. They say things like "another Netflix bomb" or something like that, even though Netflix has BY FAR the most Oscar, Golden Globe, Emmy, etc. nominations than any other company on the planet. 2) People who rate everything low because they're miserable. If you look at their reviews you'll see that almost everything they rate is between a 1-3. Sometimes these people say they didn't even last 5min but base an entire series off of 5min. How miserable do you have to be to take the time to go and review movies/tv shows that you don't like? I only review the ones I like. I understand rating it low but to take the time to leave a review? And 3) people who hate anything with diversity! We all know who their leader is and their cult leave negative comments in droves with anything that has diversity!
