Powers: Season 1 Photos
Tv Season Info
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.
A truly deconstructionist superhero story, in the form of a slowly unfolding procedural, with a side helping of zaniness? I would have liked to see that show. Powers isn't it.
With this end-product, it's finally clear why Powers has had such a tortured path to the small screen.
Instead of cutting through the fat of the overfed superhero genre, Powers wilts and sputters.
