My brother first told me about the Power TV show on Starz back in 2014. Now, my sister watches it and everybody in my circle does so too. For what it's worth, I've watched every episode in every season; and, I can attest to the TV show's exceptional quality.
I think anybody concerned with gaining street knowledge should watch Power because there are morals to their stories. Although Tommy should be idolized, you do realize that he's going to end up in a body-bag eventually? Also, you might as well conclude that Ghost is dead already since everybody has took a stab at killing him since season 1. There's clearly a plot to kill.
But James St. Patrick is strong. He won't die. Remember what doesn't kill you makes you stronger. Omari Hardwick's character is fundamentally fit to be a drug kingpin for years to come. And dying right now is bad for business, specifically the marketing department.
It's the characters that give life to the story. Who's your favorite character? Isn't Omari Hardwick the best actor? And Joseph Sikora is the shit too. But my favorite character is SPOILER ALERT... Lobos (sorry to see you go.)
I like Lobos aka Jefe (translated as Boss in Spanish) the best because he did the least amount of work and reaped the most amount of money. While everybody was doing the dirty work, Lobos kept his hands and feet manicured and pedicured, respectively. They feared and respected him the most.
The writers room on Power come up with incredible ideas. The writers don't stop developing their story lines. There is always something unexpected in the script. Moreover, the directors and producers take their time positioning key players and putting key pieces in place. I love creator Courtney A. Kemp.
Finally, the music contributes significantly to Power's greatness. Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson created a few good songs for the show. Big Rich Town and I'm the Man are on my playlist right now.
Are you addicted to the TV show? It is a superior product for certain. Everything about Power is excellent.
