Raising Dion | Netflix Official Site I started watching this Netflix show a couple of days ago and am presently starting episode 4. It's a pretty low key (so far) about a young boy's and his mother's struggles with his emerging super powers. I like it a lot so far. Unlike most shows with young kids, the boy (Ja'Siah Young) playing Dion seems like a natural actor. His mother is played by Alisha Wainwright, who does an excellent job of portraying the love, fear and exasperation of raising a powered child. (Plus, she's smoking hot.) Michael B. Jordan plays a minor, recurring role, at least so far.
