BLACK LIGHTNING is The CW’s latest series based on a D.C. Comics property. The new Tuesday-night drama shares an executive producer, Greg Berlanti, with the other D.C. adaptations, but BLACK LIGHTNING, developed for television by Berlanti’s fellow executive producers Salim Akil and Mara Brock Akil, has two notable differences. All but one of the protagonists are African-American and most of the main characters are adults in early middle age. Jefferson Pierce (Cress Williams) is a beloved high school principal in the city of Freeland. Nine years ago, Jefferson left behind his electricity-shooting superhero alter ego Black Lightning in an effort […]Read On »

CD Review: JURASSIC PARK 20th ANNIVERSARY soundtrack

But when it comes to his most singable theme, the award must go to JURASSIC PARK. God forbid this movie had come out when Meco […]Read On »
