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.

Really mixed feelings about this show. Powers has a much more realistic take on a world with superpowered citizens with the aspects of crime, fame, and imperfection, but while I want to rate this show in the 8-10 range, I cannot because the action sequences aren't very believable and the younger actors are BAD. All flying is obviously fake, almost as if you can see the wires they are hanging on. The older characters carry the show with their better performances and are instantly likeable, but younger actors, particularly the character Calista, are downright annoying and unwatchable. Basically with a higher budget and better young actors this would've been phenomenal.
