Soul and funk singer Sharon Jones was diagnosed with cancer in 2013, but went into remission after undergoing surgery and chemotherapy. She was quick to resume touring, but the cancer returned in 2015. Her appearance in Luke Cage: You Know My Steez (2016) would be her swan song during which time she was already dying of pancreatic cancer. See more »
Multiple characters refer to the police in the series as being from "Harlem PD." In reality Harlem is simply a neighborhood on the island of Manhattan and thus would be patrolled by the New York Police Department or NYPD.
Harlem has NYPD police precincts (the 26th, 28th and the 32nd ), not its own police department. See more »
First of all don't go in excepting something like Thor,grow up.Daredevil and Jessica Jones already established they are willing to go places the Marvel movies dare not go.They got that quality storytelling and intrigue like Game Of Thrones. but more accurately with Luke Cage.I'll compare it to the greatest show ever made.. The Wire.
Luke Cage takes you to the heart and soul of Harlem and music.Everything is top notch from the acting to the characters to the action. The dialogue sounds straight out of a Quentin Tarantino movie with them discussing whose better between Bruce Lee and Jet Li & Many other pop culture reference.There is some social and political commentary too.This show better get all the Emmy awards that can be thrown at it. What I like about the Marvel Netflix shows is how each one feels different from the rest.The theme of hope makes Luke Cage stand out.Did I also mention this is the most diverse show on television,Asians Whites,Latinas & Of course blacks.
Now I love most Netflix shows especially the creme like House Of Cards,Narcos,Daredevil,Master Of None,Jessica Jones, Stranger Things etc but as far as first seasons go Luke Cage is the Gold Standard.
