    Thank f**k that is over, for such a great show at the start it's amazing how s**t it went.

    Tommy as a bad ass character jumped the shark for me when I discovered the actor played a pregnant man on Grey's Anatomy, just couldn't look at him seriously after that.

    Whilst it wasn’t great and a little predictable, I think it’d be pointless doing this

    a little predictable? bit of an understatement


  • Registered Users Posts: 843 ✭✭✭duffysfarm


    some rubbish. did anyone else think that ghost himself didnt get much screen time in the last few episodes? it seemed to focus on everyone else bar him? fair enough he was in most episodes but it was more to complete other peoples stories than his own


  • Registered Users Posts: 6,031 ✭✭✭Slippin Jimmy


    Well he was shot and killed?


  • Registered Users Posts: 5,169 ✭✭✭Frank Grimes


    I've been putting off watching the last 3 episodes of this since they aired but finally decided today to get them over and done with, as everyone else has basically said that was a terrible end for what was once a very enjoyable show. I think I'll be passing on the multiple spin-offs.

    Nope, I'm out!


  • Registered Users Posts: 6,031 ✭✭✭Slippin Jimmy


    Tariq as the main character, thats me definitely out. They're just milking it now.


  • Posts: 17,728 ✭✭✭✭[Deleted User]


    That'll likely be worse than the last few episodes :(
    Seeing Tommy get started somewhere else from low levels might have been decent but Tariq doesn't really capture the interest.


  • Registered Users Posts: 4,298 ✭✭✭Homelander


    Tariq. The most loathable, unlikable character in the entire franchise, and they chose to base a show around him.

    Not even loathable because he's a nasty character, but more so that he's a crap actor and every time I saw him on screen I was hoping he would get clipped.

    Instant avoid for me.

    At the end of the last series, did they not imply it would be a series about Ghost and Tommy when they were younger?

    There were multiple spin-offs mentioned, young Ghost and Tommy was one of them. Edit: That trailer must have been for the Kanan one, there's some info here about it.

    I'm not going to bother with this unless there's some major turnaround and it's actually good, based on the last season of Power I highly doubt this will happen.

    Yes there is 4 spin offs lined for this. Powerbook 2 based on after events of the regular series, 3 for a prequel of Kanan's life growing up. 4 following the political world with Tate and it seems the last one that'll see air time is following Tommy to LA.

    I'll watch the one with Tommy. The rest I have zero interest in.

    With the right actor then Kanan's one could be good, great potential too following Tate, can get a feeling of 'The Wire' off it maybe. I agree that Tommy's one would definitely be the popular choice and who knows, maybe no appetite for this Powerbook 2 would see end of the franchise.

    I never did watch the last episodes of Power, and that's me done with this shower.

    The people behind it seem to be a lot more enthusiastic than the people watching it, and I wouldn't be at all surprised if the new undertaking bombs.

    I see this one flopping quite badly. Tate seems one the worst characters in it to base a mini series on.

    Don't worry, it'll never get made as the whole thing will be cancelled after the next series airs and flops.

    I didn’t bother with the last episode either, it became painful to watch

    The internet isn’t for everyone

    I imagine the Emmy for Michael Rainey Jr is in the bag.


  • Registered Users Posts: 60,007 ✭✭✭✭Agent Coulson


    Well the pilot was ok nothing more it just feels just like a new season which it is really.


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,700 ✭✭✭BandMember


    Agreed. The name may have changed but the song remains the same.... I'll give it another look next week, but not sure how much longer I'll stick with it as the last season of Ghost was just background noise a lot of the time.

    Power Book II: Ghost' has been renewed for Season 2 at Starz


  • Registered Users Posts: 60,007 ✭✭✭✭Agent Coulson


    Teaser for the series that starts summer 2021.



  • Registered Users Posts: 4,298 ✭✭✭Homelander


    Out of curiosity for anyone who's watched, what's the spin-off with Tariq like? Can't bring myself to watch it, but interested to see if it's at least better than the dumpster fire that was the last season of Power.


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,096 ✭✭✭piplip87


    I got turned of the original power in the second last season, just lost interest.

    Just finished book 2. Think it's a fairly decent watch and the finale sets up a good season 2


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 1,297 ✭✭✭Gooey Looey


    Watched the first 25 mins of book 2 and turned it off. It had already annoyed me with characters I hate


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,094 ✭✭✭Danye


    Where can one watch Book 2? If I can get access to it I’ll give it a bash during lockdown.
