Powers, an edgy dramatic series, follows the lives of two homicide detectives, Christian Walker and Deena Pilgrim, who are assigned to investigate cases involving people with superhuman abilities, referred to as “Powers.” Set amidst today’s paparazzi culture, Powers asks the questions, what if the world was full of superheroes who aren’t actually heroic at all? What if all that power was just one more excuse for mischief, mayhem, murder, and endorsement deals?
It’s got Eddie Izzard in it! …And it’s apparently just going to be on the PlayStation, which is… actually, they’ve sold hundreds of millions of the blessed things. That’s not a small potential target audience at all, especially since I’m pretty sure that most people who own a PlayStation are going to be at least open to the idea of watching a police procedural about superheros. So never mind me, OK?
PS: No, I’m not going to buy a PlayStation just to watch this show.
