Storyline

A woman creates a community center in an old inner-city gym called Powerhouse that belonged to her father. As things turn out, the move attracts the opposition of criminals whom a group of five teenage attendees of the center manage to find and capture. Furthermore, that incident is the first of a series of cases that the kids investigate by using their knowledge of science, fitness, and other areas, while addressing other serious issues. Interspersed in the show are un-commercials that promote health, social attitudes, and physical activity. Written by Kenneth Chisholm <kchishol@execulink.com>

love it
2 January 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The Powerhouse Series shown on both PBS and Nickeloden was ahead of its time conquering important issues.

I wish they had made more episodes I miss it very much.

Jason Kravits (LOLO) was such a cute guy. I had such a crush on him.

And the episode where the gang dealt with a disabled teenager was one of the best shows I've seen about differences and tolerance.

Todays kids need to see this show.

They should make a remake for todays youth.

Kids need a show like this on TV because it handled the important issues brilliantly

And I like to see a bunch of inner city youth deal with drugs, AIDS, School violence. racial discrimination
