Powers - Anyone Watching?

Has anyone checked out Playstation's new "Powers" series (first episode available on YouTube)?

I've seen the first three episodes and have mixed feelings but on the whole, it's pretty decent. Definitely had a "Heroes" vibe to it, hope it doesn't follow the same trajectory of that show.

BTW, Michelle Forbes looks terrific... can't believe it's been 20+ years since Engisn Ro. I've seen her in other stuff since then, but she looks especially good as Retro Girl.

I've seen the first one. It's pretty strange tonally...a mixture of silly and serious. Kind of camp noir.

That sort of thing is easier to pull off in comics. We'll say if they manage it on TV.

I watched 2-3 episodes of this show. I guess I didn't care for it enough to keep watching.

I'm curious, can season 1 be seen anywhere other than Playstation? Was it only a limited exclusivity on PS and now you can see it on Netflix or at least buy it on Blu-ray or iTunes?

That makes sense now that I think of it. Sony kinda likes Blu-ray.

I believe Sony owns Crackle as well. I'm starting to see a pattern here.

Well, it's not a TOTAL Sony monopoly. I watched it on my Panasonic TV.

By the way, each episode has a scene after the closing credits.
