Review: ‘Power’ is the Best TV Show Ever Produced By 50 Cent (and the Worst)


James “Ghost” St. Patrick (Omari Hardwick) is both a drug kingpin and a New York City nightclub owner. In the first season of crime drama, Ghost is in the middle of a change and wants out of the drug life. From Executive Producer, Curtis Jackson aka 50 Cent and show creator Courtney Kemp Agboh, here comes a visionary crime drama titled Power. James “Ghost” St. Patrick has it all: a beautiful wife, a Manhattan penthouse, and New York’s hottest, up-and-coming new nightclub – Truth. As his success grows, so does Ghost’s plans to build an empire. But there’s just one problem: when he’s not at the club, he’s the kingpin of the city’s most lucrative drug network, serving only the wealthy and powerful. As Ghost is seduced by the prospect of a legitimate life, everything precious to him becomes unknowingly threatened. Once you’re in, can you ever get out?

‘Power’ is a type of show which has used the ‘F’ words to emphasize the emotion of dialogue but miserably failed to impress the audience. Characters of the show tried hard to make their audience laugh but fortunately audience got more sense of humor than this one-dimensional drama. ‘Power’ narrates a complicated story of the perils and problems of power and how one man deals with them. If one chop out ‘sex’ from the show, it will perfectly fit on ABC with all that network’s other vapid soaps.

Cast: Omar Hardwick, Lela Loren, Joseph Sikora, Curtis 50 Cent Jackson, Lucy Walters
