    I had a look for a thread about this, but couldn't find one (surprisingly). It starts officially on Starz tomorrow night, but the pilot is out now. I thought it was an absolute cracker.
    Power is an upcoming drama television series on Starz created by Courtney Kemp Agboh and produced by the rapper Curtis "50 Cent" Jackson. The series follows James St. Patrick, nicknamed "Ghost", owner of a popular New York City nightclub. In addition, he is a major player in one of the city's biggest illegal drug networks. He struggles to balance these two lives, and the balance topples when he realizes he wants to leave the drug ring in order to support his legitimate business.



    One to watch....

    I watched the pilot last night based on the comments above. It's grat. It was a strong start. Great setup overall and I'm looking forward to the next episode. I hope they can keep the quality up post-pilot.

    Just caught up with this three episodes in and it holding up story wise if they can keep this going they will have a strong series on there hands.


  • Registered Users Posts: 6,121 ✭✭✭ squonk


    Yeah it's on my must see list at the moment. Very strong for a summer show. I just really like lots of things about it. Very fine replacement for the much lamented Boss.

    So without any spoiling.. Is this show worth watching, now that it's finished airing?


  • Registered Users Posts: 55,547 ✭✭✭✭ Agent Coulson


    I really enjoyed it and it has been renewed for a second season.

    It stayed strong for the 8 episode season.


  • Registered Users Posts: 4,940 ✭✭✭ krustydoyle


    Have to agree with agent coulson

    I enjoyed it, decent characters (especially the women) so bring on season 2

    Yes, as said above, top class stuff all the way through. Not a dud episode or filler in sight. I hope they keep this up for Season 2. I think 8 is just the right number of episodes per season for the story they're telling.


  • Registered Users Posts: 55,547 ✭✭✭✭ Agent Coulson


    Season 2 trailer.

    Really looking forward to this.



  • Registered Users Posts: 55,547 ✭✭✭✭ Agent Coulson


    Back tomorrow night Stateside.

    Really looking forward to this hopefully it will be as strong as season 1.


  • Registered Users Posts: 55,547 ✭✭✭✭ Agent Coulson


    Strong opening episode that lays down a good maker for what looks like another strong season ahead.


  • Registered Users Posts: 13,840 ✭✭✭✭ somesoldiers


    loved the first season of this, will probably wait til the end and binge s02


  • Registered Users Posts: 3,923 ✭✭✭ kearneybobs


    Great first episode to season 2.

    Just started watching this and it's excellent. Was hooked within 10 minutes of the first episode, which is rare enough.

    Solid first season. Really enjoyed it. Loving how it's becoming a little bit more complex in the second season.

    Liking this.
    Hating when they have half their conversations in English then the other half in Spanish.

    What's wrong with that por favor? Yes annoying, it's like Bernard dunnes speaking Irish where he explains what he's just said in English


  • Registered Users Posts: 55,547 ✭✭✭✭ Agent Coulson


    It just got really interesting now.


  • Registered Users Posts: 4,940 ✭✭✭ krustydoyle


    Great episode.. Few twists and turns to come I'd say


  • Registered Users Posts: 55,547 ✭✭✭✭ Agent Coulson


    The twists are coming alright I really think this is my number 1 summer show.

    The show really is holding up to the same level it had in the first season.


  • Registered Users Posts: 3,923 ✭✭✭ kearneybobs


    Yeah. They're upping the ante every episode. Some nice twists etc but with some of the recent ones you've gotta question the longevity of the series.

    Now that Angela knows Ghost is Ghost they might be able to get another season out of it.


  • Registered Users Posts: 55,547 ✭✭✭✭ Agent Coulson


    3 seasons would be about right for this story next and final season can be about the downfall of Ghost.


  • Registered Users Posts: 13,840 ✭✭✭✭ somesoldiers


    Just caught up with this and I also am enjoying the momentum, I even went back and watched s01 again just to be sure I hadn't missed anything.

    Now to catch up on what's happening in Abuddin

    Nope; the mint is were all the money is printed inc. bills and coins (even though part of it may be outsourced).
