Powers: "Caracas 1967" Review

PlayStation's Powers is back for its second season, featuring the "Who Killed Retro Girl?" storyline that kicked off the Brian Michael Bendis/Michael Oeming comic series over fifteen years ago.

Getting to know her (as played excellently by Michelle Forbes) was a good thing as we now enter a world that's mourning her shocking, unceremonious death. READ MORE...

‘Powers’ Season 2 Review: Sony’s Superhero Series Has Improved, But Not Enough

"Sometimes I forget that I’m surrounded by assholes." Truer words were never spoken when it comes to the latest season of Sony Entertainment’s online television series, Powers. Powers, for those who didn’t watch the awful first season, revolves around officers Walker (Sharlto Copley) and Pilgrim (Susan Heyward) as they solve cases involving superheroes, villains, and any poor schmuck who happens to have some powers under their belt. I was extremely critical of the first season, as it was the very definition of a hot mess with terrible acting, some of the worst special effects you could find on modern television, and story points that darted past faster than any speedster you’d find on this side of the CW. Creators and producers of the series have mentioned that Season 2 would work on improving itself, taking a different path than the one traveled in its initial offering. Is this the case? Most certainly, but that still doesn’t make it good. READ MORE...

For those just coming in, 'Powers' is based on a comic book series and features a world where supertypes ("Powers") are relatively commonplace. Christian Walker (Shalto Copley) is a former Power, Diamond, who lost his powers after a battle with his mentor Wolfe. Now Christian works in the Powers Division of the LAPD, dealing with super-powered crime.
