Marvel’s Luke Cage Causes Netflix Outage

Published: Monday 3rd Oct 2016 by David

The new Netflix original series ‘Luke Cage‘ is to thank/blame for the overloading of the platform’s system over the weekend.

Good news below…

Fronted by the African-American actor Mike Colter, the series tells the tale of the crime-fighting Marvel hero created by Archie Goodwin, John Romita, Sr. and George Tuska.

On September 30th the character was reintroduced to the world via a thirteen episode Netflix series.

How the general public responded? Intensely.

For, the platform’s server was unable to accommodate the unexpected number of new subscribers the show had pulled in and went down for two hours.

‘Deadline’ shares:

The outage, which began just before 12:00 PM Pacific time, appears to have primarily affected the United States and the UK.

Peep its trailer below…

      No, a great story did. Let’s not reduce our black men to bodies, even jokingly, when they are much more than that.

        Gurl, give it a rest and loosen up. It’s OK to every now and then make a tongue and cheek quip. Obviously the thirst for the show is because of the writing, acting and production….but anyone with two eyes can acknowledge Mike Colter is phyne as hell as well.
