POWER: THE COMPLETE FOURTH SEASON REVIEWED
“Power” returns for its fourth season on Starz. If I didn’t have a Wiki near me, I couldn’t tell an episode apart. While that’s not necessarily indicative of a bad show, it does highlight how insular this urban drama can become in time. There’s the whole first season aspect of a young man rising above his station in life. But, it’s now neck deep in melodrama. Who actually cares about the slain FBI agents that spurs most of this season?
Add onto that, the lack of any cliffhangers and you have this bizarrely structured drama. While it does have its fans, as I found out last year. It just has no appeal to me anymore. I wouldn’t be shocked if it got cancelled, as Starz seems to be pushing a lot of its weight behind shows like Vida. Still, I hope that the material finds its feet next year. There is a logical conclusion to this tale and the time is now.
