Really good so far!
7 February 2019 | by Tinyshotk8See all my reviews

Not much to say except I enjoyed the first few episodes! Never thought Shawn from Power would be able to carry a show but I'm glad I was mistaken. There's also a lot of intertwining plots happening throughout the show (kinda like how The Wire worked) so they've definitely got a lot of plot to work with. Can't wait to see where this goes!
