Review of Powers

60 minutes

Powers, an edgy dramatic series, follows the lives of two homicide detectives, Christian Walker and Deena Pilgrim, who are assigned to investigate cases involving people with superhuman abilities, referred to as “Powers.” Set amidst today’s paparazzi culture, Powers asks the questions, what if the world was full of superheroes who aren’t actually heroic at all? What if all that power was just one more excuse for mischief, mayhem, murder, and endorsement deals?

What's wrong with this review?

Let us know why you think this review is inappropriate.

Somewhat like any other procedural cop show with a twist: people with superpowers.

What I like about this is that the characters are all portrayed as complicated human beings, with no black-and-white good or bad characters. There's a lot of realness in the show despite the fictitious storyline with a lot of swearing, which adds to the reality factor. I think if you're into a dark, complicated cop drama, then you should give this a try.

I really don't know what they're going to do with the second season, but I hope it gets better. I'll definitely try it out.
