Critic Reviews for Power Season 3

All Critics (9) | Top Critics (6)

Don't worry, "Power" is as sexy, flashy and addictive as it has always been. The only difference is the women in Ghost's world have a lot more to do and say - and the series is better for it.

Aug 7, 2018 | Rating: B+ | Full Review…

Power certainly challenges the notion that drug dealers are great businessmen.

Mar 30, 2018 | Full Review…

By piling a new, hot mess on top of the hot mess that surfaced this season, Power has done its job accordingly.

Nov 15, 2017 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

The core of Power has always been the relationship between Ghost and Tommy Egan. Season 3 managed to stretch that tension into a taut emotional rubber band, leaving us to believe it could snap at any moment.

Nov 15, 2017 | Full Review…

Power is pretty easy to follow even if you're just jumping in mid-run, if you've ever watched a gangster movie or two, because it uses every conceivable trope from all of them.

Sep 26, 2017 | Full Review…

It's way too early to say that Power's best days are behind it, but it's not premature to say the show has never had to work harder to prove its viability.

My own little opinion of the season as a whole? I'm going to go with slightly subpar. Still love this show, but I was disappointed overall with the way things played out.

Nov 15, 2017 | Full Review…

Let's just say a complex multi-point narrative is getting a lot more complicated and engaging - and I liked the first two seasons of Power a lot to begin with.

Audience Reviews for Power: Season 3

  • Sep 28, 2019
    The plot lines get a bit repetitive. Nobody trusts anybody. Ghost is supposed to be this shrewd mastermind, but at the same time seems to have little insight into what motivates people. There are definitely some great aspects to it and I watched the first two seasons relatively happily but it was just the same kind of stuff happening over and over so I stopped watching.

    THIS SHOW IS GARBAGE I DON’T SEE WHAT ANYBODY SEES IN ANY SHOW THAT DOES WHAT THIS SHOW HAS DONE TENFOLD. I DON’T WANNA SEE OR WATCH A SHOW WHERE ALL THE PEOPLE IN SAID SHOW CAN’T MAKE A DECISION TO SAVE THEIR LIFE WHEN EVERY ONE IS OVER SOME LITERAL JR HIGH SCHOOL BS EVERY SECOND WITH EVERY CHARATERS BIGGEST DILEMMA IS WHETHER OR NOT THEY WANNA FOREVER BE PUSSY WHIPPED OR ON HOW MUCH OR HOW LITTLE THEY WANNA CHEAT. IT IS ABSOLUTELY THE MOST STALE SHOW IVE EVER WITNESSED ON TV. THE CHARATER DEVELOPMENT DOESNT GO ANYWHERE OTHER THEN OH HERE IS HOW SAD AND PATHETIC THE CAST IS AND JUST LIKE THE CHARACTERS THIS STORY WILL PUT YOU TO SLEEP WITH HOW SLOW, BORING AND BACKSEAT ANY ADVANCEMENT IN SAID STORY IS UNLESS YOUR ONLY INTERESTED IN THE WORST SOFTCORE PORN EVER MADE. YOU’D GET MORE DRAMA IF YOUR RECORDED ME TURNING THIS SHOW OFF EDITED IN SLOW MOTION.

    This is the show to watch, Empire is over-rated.
  • Aug 16, 2016
    Losing grip. Not impressed. Lost me at Season 3: Episode Four. Kanan's character needs cutting, Tommy needs to reconcile with Ghost (better drama), the psychotic DC cop and her Texas Tea sidekick need to be axed as well---with a quickness. Yuck! (Advice: Get back to great, chic writing showrunners).

    Looking forward to tonight's episode after a week off- it's been very good this year. If Nerve-wracking...
  • Aug 01, 2016
    I really liked the last season. So far, season 3 is horrible. They are trying way too hard to be a good show.
  • Jul 18, 2016
    Fantastic acting and riveting story line.
