A show that makes you root for the bad guys, is a show that has been written well. This is just great - sexy, intelligent, cool. Think Breaking Bad with a hip-hop twist

This show honestly make me want to be a drug dealer and own a nightclub! (JK!) 50 Cent has something big on his hands! Omari, keep this show and leave Mary Jane. This role suits you better even though you end up cheating on your wife in both shows.

What would you do? What would you risk? Who would you step on? Who would you kill? All this is the name of Power. This series is a gangster crime drama about a man who seeks ultimate power building a drug dynasty and legitimate nightclub. There's more to the high life other than money and power... there's blood, honor, respect, and ruthlessness; all things that Power delivers.

Surprisingly good show... 50 Cent is not a great actor by any means, but everyone else in the show holds their own. And to give 50 his credit, he's done an amazing job behind the scenes of this show, without him it wouldn't exist.

James St Patrick is a little bit black James Bond, little bit gangster hip--in short, perhaps he is the next Denzel, a versatile actor with style and who is a pleasure to watch as he plays to and away from the social and racial stereotypes of the 21st century. The overall plot line might sound so-so (street punk becomes drug kingpin leads a doublelife as a night club mogul trying to outwit an old white disco powerenterprise while unwittingly having an affair with a cop, his childhood love, who could could at any moment bring him down) but the writing within this overall plotline and the filming and acting is so strong that one cannot help but check in every week and then impatiently await the next episode to find out who is on top, how, why and what secrets might or might not get uncovered. Behind all of this are exciting issues of trust, greed and social image. Excellent scripting, but even better gestual and facial expressions that often say so much about the internal motives of each character. I think one might keep their eyes on this show--as perhaps these actors need to be nominated for an Emmy, especially Omari Hardwick and Lela Loren.

It took me a few episodes to fully warm up to this show, but I'm unashamed to say I'm hooked now! I'd have to really sit and think of another show where the lead can really be considered a bad guy (you know, since drug lords are typically high on that list in TV lol), but you find him compelling and care about him regardless.

Power is dark and can get pretty violent, but I'm always on the edge of my seat. I think the writing is just so tight--it absolutely tops my list when it comes to shows where more is going on than meets the eye. In fact, the penultimate episode in the second season? I was literally on my feet, shocked at the end. I think I might have thrown something on the floor, I was so overwhelmed by what I was seeing lol. To be honest, I didn't think I could be more surprised until the promo for the finale episode started rolling. It was like: "Really!? You're going to try to top that next week!?" Power is absolutely among my top TV picks.

Looooong ass opener. Still only a few episodes in, but am really surprised at it's lack of awful. The episodes are near an hour and are shot well. Some wasted dialog because you are to stupid to recognize past context but all in all not a waste of time.
