Critic Reviews for Powers: Season 1

All Critics (24) | Top Critics (8)

The world of Powers might just be engrossing enough to sustain the flaws, especially if superheroes are your game.

The dialogue, for one thing, is likely to rub serious drama fans the wrong way with its mix of cheap one-liners, bad metaphors, and a stunning amount of epithets and four-letter words - anatomical, sexual, scatological, it's all there.

With this end-product, it's finally clear why Powers has had such a tortured path to the small screen.

If you're not already a PlayStation Plus subscriber, I wouldn't recommend joining up just to watch the show.

When I hit the end of the screener episodes, I wanted the same thing I always want at the end of a good comic book: to know what happens next.
