📺 Power (TV Series 2014– 2000)
Created by Courtney A. Kemp. With Omari Hardwick, Lela Loren, Naturi Naughton, Joseph Sikora. James “Ghost” St. Patrick, a wealthy New York night club owner who has it all, catering to the city’s elite and dreaming big, lives a double life as a drug kingpin.
I felt that Power sat somewhere between Boardwalk Empire and Breaking Bad. My concern all along was the reality of the story. Maybe the seemingly seedy world of drug dealing and running a night club provides cover for this, it sometimes seemed a bit far fetched how things tied together. Beyond this, I think that the questions that the show asked about character and identity were interesting, especially in regards to truth and reality.
