Critic Reviews for Powers Season 1

All Critics (29) | Top Critics (9)

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.

Mar 9, 2015 | Full Review…

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

Mar 12, 2015 | Full Review…

Instead of cutting through the fat of the overfed superhero genre, Powers wilts and sputters.

Jul 16, 2018 | Rating: 1.5/5 | Full Review…

It's easy to assert that we've got "too many" superheroic series going on right now, but fortunately Powers is not too light, not too moody, not too glossy and not too completely uninteresting... Powers seems pretty appealing to me right about now.

While Powers has an interesting hook, it just doesn't ever reach a level where I can recommend it for people to watch. Give this one a pass.

Jul 16, 2018 | Rating: 1/5 | Full Review…

There's a lot of story to cover and mythology to establish. And Powers is full steam ahead.

Jul 16, 2018 | Full Review…

Creates a fascinating exploration into the world of four-color comics by imagining what it might really be like to live among costumed superheroes and villains.

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