    What Powers is, from the start, is something stranger, more convoluted, and a bit grandiose (at least in the three episodes shared with critics).

    The actors have no chemistry together and their characters lack the kind of depth and texture that a well-crafted TV project would have been able to give them. Various actors frequently have to deliver painful exposition dumps, the storytelling is often incoherent.

    Powers will be sure to appeal to hard-core gamers, but it's not likely to attract a wider audience. 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.

    For all its adult-oriented leanings and gritty realism, Powers lacks the one thing that its comic-book counterpart has in spades: style. [13 Mar 2015, p.64]

  • Keith Uhlich

    There’s rarely a moment when Powers doesn’t seem like a cheap knockoff of more fully realized extended universes.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Robert Lloyd

    The series is overwrought or obvious at times, and here and there can look surprisingly cheap. But it's generally quite watchable and not uninteresting.

  • Mike Hale

    [The cast] all do their best to provide what every comic-book adaptation needs and so few achieve, which is a little soul, some human substance at the core. Powers shows occasional, fitful signs of that kind of life, though in the long run it may be just too threadbare to get there.

  • Rob Owen

    Powers doesn't get off to the the best start but the concept is strong and the world so detailed and cleverly built out that it's probably a series that bears some monitoring to see if it will improve.

  • Oliver Sava

    Powers is at its best when it’s not focusing on Christian Walker, who unfortunately is the series’ main character.

  • Alan Sepinwall

    Powers the show acts as if its viewers needs their hands held through an introduction to the world, and everything has to be spelled out to make sure nothing gets the slightest bit confusing.

  • Ken Tucker

    Powers gives you the slam-bang super-hero action you want, as well as the hard-boiled tone many cop shows aim for and seldom attain.

    It is a refreshing amalgamation of the two genres that 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.

  • Geoff Berkshire

    Instead of gratuitous thrills, the creatives--also including Remi Aubuchon (“Caprica”) and Michael Dinner (“Justified”)--emphasize story, with enough twists and turns in each episode to keep the target audience hooked.
