POWER – My Rating: 8/10

PowerPower is a very intriguing story of a young Black male who is struggling to end his double life style. Ghost played by Omari Hardwick, is a Wealthy, successful Manhattan nightclub owner by night and a drug kingpin 24/7. Although he is suspected of being a drug dealer, it’s been hard for the FBI and police to pin him down, especially since his name, “Ghost” is renowned but no one has ever seen him, except his wife and a couple of friends. Before he is found out, Ghost who  goes under the name of James St. Patrick wants to dump his ghetto wife, Tasha St. Patrick (Naturi Naughton) and life style upon opening a new night club in California. In the mean while, unbeknownst to Ghost, he’s having an affair with (Lela Loran, played by Angela Valdes) the very FBI agent who has been trying to find out what Ghost looks like and make the bust.
This thriller is pretty entertaining and the acting is superb. The first season has come to an end with a fantastic finale.  Power airs on Showtime and is worth checking out!

REVOLUTION – My rating: 8/10

RevolutionI didn’t think this series would last.  The lights went out along with all power.  In other words, the world went back to fire and labor intensive task like walking.  Just image what this ever advancing technical universe would be like without the discoveries of the last 100 years.  In some ways, we would be better off and in most other ways, we would be screwed.

I was curious about the direction of Revolution.  What in the world would cause such a catastrophe?  As the series progresses, more and more is explained but still no real explanation as to the how.  On the way to the knowledge we all have been waiting for, many beloved cast member have perished and many situations that make for exciting viewing are revealed.  It’s interesting to see what man will do for power.  In this series, we are pretty close to Anarchy.  The biggest power group was lead by Sebastian Monroe alone with his best friend,  Miles Matheson, played by David Lyons and Billy Burke, respectively.  Through the seasons, that power group has been dissolved which means new groups have emerged. The hope was to regain power but that failed to do the trick, so off went the lights, again.  New issues have surfaced leaving us to interpret what a Nano does and what the future will hold.  There’s no end to the direction of Revolution.  It has gotten increasingly better over the seasons.  Check this one out — I think it’s a keeper.  The cast is huge and the stories are well acted and well told.  Revolution is currently airing on NBC.
