^ Well, that seems fair enough. I have noticed the show (this season more than last) appears to have little concern with episodic structure; we just mostly rejoin an ongoing series of characters and events week to week, instead of being served a story with any kind of beginning, middle, and end. All the CW DC shows are serialized to some extent, but structurally they still tend to have an identifiable storyline of the week that reaches some kind of resolution at the end of a given episode. Black Lightning seems just to stop each week because its hour is up, and then simply picks up again where it left off the following week. (The one time the show did feel compelled to reach some kind of narrative resolution, last season's finale, ended up feeling rushed and contrived to me.) It works well enough for me, since I find most of the characters and storylines in the mix to be interesting, even if there are a lot of them at any given time. And there's something to be said for a show that has too many ideas instead of too few. But I can see where it would seem unfocused and maybe directionless to some.
