What is it?

The 2018 Netflix web television show Luke Cage (Season 2).

What is it about?

This is how Rotten Tomatoes describes this web television show:

After clearing his name, Luke Cage has become a celebrity on the streets of Harlem with a reputation as bulletproof as his skin.

But being so visible has only increased his need to protect the community and find the limits of who he can and can’t save.

With the rise of a formidable new foe, Luke is forced to confront the fine line that separates a hero from a villain.

What do I like about it and what would other people like about it?

I like some of the villains and some of their motivations, some of the music, how they showed some of the flaws of how some characters tried to deal with some problems in their community, and how they showed some of Luke Cage’s flaws; and I think that other people will like that as well.

Final Thoughts

This season was worse than season 1 in some ways but better than season 1 in other ways, I can not remember the first season well enough to remember which I liked better, but I possibly liked this season a bit more but I am not sure.

I still do not think that this season was as diverse as it could be, it was more diverse than the first season and there were more female villains, but they seem to intentionally be leaving out certain women with light-color skin like they do not exist in the city or something oddly (there are some briefly here and there very rarely, and usually only for a few seconds in the background and they usually do not get to talk; and so to me it seems this has been intentional each season) which I think hurts the show; and I do not like how they are still keeping Jessica Jones away from the show again, but at least a few other characters did get to make some guest appearances.

Mariah Dillard (Mariah Stokes) Lets Us Take Shelter

I got in bed late but I still had some dreams, I kept waking up and going back to sleep without recording them though, and so now I can only barely remember part of the end of my last dream.

Dream 1

The forgotten parts of the dream took place during the day and I remember being outside, but that is all that I can remember of those parts of the dream for now but I will type anything that I remember here later if I do remember something.

The end of the dream involved people taking shelter like maybe a disaster or emergency of some kind was taking place, and I guess I was among the people but I am not sure.

The building was owned by Mariah Dillard (Mariah Stokes) from the television show Luke Cage, and she was letting us take shelter there.

Ms. Dillard was there along with her personal assistant Alex Wesley and maybe some bodyguards, and I remember her talking with us.

Ms. Dillard was using this situation to help her image for political reasons et cetera, she felt that the disaster or emergency would not last more than a day, and so she was willing to use her building as a shelter for such a short time only.

The building that we were taking shelter in was possibly Harlem’s Paradise, but I can not remember.

But that is all that I can remember of this dream.

Dream 2

While doing professional development at work today one of the topics was reducing anxiety, and then suddenly a memory came to my mind that possibly was a dream fragment from last night.

My memory was a quick unclear flashback of an unknown woman, whose appearance I could not make out, talking with me about what seemed to be anxiety et cetera.

She was disappointed in the way that I was handling that, and she was giving me some advice that also matched up with part of today’s professional development which is probably why this memory came back to me.

She told me to not worry or care about what other people think and about things that I can not control and / or something like that.

I acknowledged some of the wisdom in her words but I replied that it was easier said than done, I started to explain why I think that I struggle with this, and I probably asked for advice but that is all that came to me in this sudden flash of a memory.

The end,
