You know what that beautiful sound means: Power is back!

Jul 5, 2018 | Rating: B+ | Full Review…

This has to be one of the best season premieres that I've seen in a long time because so much happens in this episode and it's set up to show you what season 5 is going to be about, that it felt as though that this was a season finale.

Jan 24, 2019 | Full Review…

In this moment of mass shootings and families being separated at our southern border, Power Season 5 is not just good television, it is vital.

Jan 23, 2019 | Full Review…

It's a wonder that any of these people are alive, as they continuously make impulsive decisions based off raw, in the moment emotions.

Aug 30, 2018 | Rating: 4.8/5 | Full Review…

The cinematography is gorgeous, powerful and dark as we end with Dre surprising Ghost at Raina's grave.

Jul 10, 2018 | Full Review…

Tariq does something in this week's Power premiere that is so devious, so final and so unexpected that it makes me genuinely proud of him.

    Power is a 5 season drama series, soon to be 6. Every Sunday night at 9:00pm, Power becomes a trending topic all over social media. The viewers are so tuned in! Even though Power is just a TV show, the plot of the show seems like someone real life situation. James “Ghost” St. Patrick is one of the main characters on the show. James is living a double life, He owns a nightclub called Truth to cover up the drug business he runs on the side. He wants to be out of the drug game and become a clean man but life just keeps putting him in situations where he has to be that second man all the time. The actors aren’t only acting, they bring life to the characters role, as if they lived that same life before. Which makes the action more enjoyable for viewers to watch. Not only is the acting incredible, but the suspense that comes with each episode is amazing! You’ll always want to know more and see more after you watch just one episode. The rising action is always set high. You’ll find yourself trying to solve a case or put the next situation together before the next episode airs. If you was to miss one episode, you’ll miss out on so action that you’ll soon behind. That’s how intense this show is.
