So I’ve been watching Luke Cage and the show and cast and music all kick ass. I’m not done yet, so no spoilers.
I don’t remember seeing any Run-DMC references yet, but they were almost certainly my first exposure to hip hop and rap (pretty sure they were also my first exposure to Aerosmith, but that’s neither here nor there).
I’m loving the literary and musical references that I’ve caught in the show, and I’m sure there are many more that are beyond my experience and are flying over my head. I can’t wait to finish the show so I can start digging into some of the things I’ve missed but also because it’s just that damned good. Right now, I’m enjoying it more than either Daredevil or Jessica Jones and I loved both of those shows.
See-saw swingin’ with the boys in the school
With your feet flyin’ up in the air
Singin’ hey diddle-diddle with the kitty in the middle
You be swingin’ like you just didn’t care
