Storyline

A woman creates a community center in a old gym that belonged to her father in the inner city and calls it Powerhouse. As things turn out, that move has her opposing criminals whom a group of five teenage attendees of the center manage to find and capture. Furthermore, that incident is but the first of a series of informal cases that compel the kids to investigate as detectives, where they employ their knowledge of science, fitness, and other areas to solve the crimes, all while addressing serious issues that affect the youths of the city. Interspersed in the show are uncommercials that promote bodily health. Written by Kenneth Chisholm <kchishol@execulink.com>

I LOVED this show!
23 March 2004 | by (Atlanta) – See all my reviews

I remember this show. I LOVED it. All shows back then had a "low budget feel" So what? All those "retro" shows were SUPERIOR to the shows kids and teens have to grow up with now. (Few exceptions) I wish there was a way I could watch these old shows again.

Powerhouse was really good!! I remember they had some exciting themes for that day and age. I remember one time their "boss(?)', Brenda, got deathly ill and they had to solve the mystery. It turns out some lady with an infectious and deadly disease made her food. It's funny, I can't remember what I did last week, but I can remember a show I saw over 20 years ago! (I'm 30 BTW) I can even remember the theme song!!

I MISS shows like this one. It is so sad.
