POWERLESS TV review(Even Tudyk looks suspicious of the TV ratings of Powerless)

NBC‘s Powerless is nothing more than a thinly veiled sitcom wrapped within the world of DC‘s land of vigilantes and meta humans. And it’s even failing at doing that. It feels like even the creative team behind the show has no clue how to handle this product and they’re winging it. With a swing and a miss!

Alan Tudyk things on Amazon

The show follows the staff of an insurance company that specializes in products that protect the  defenseless innocent public bystanders from the collateral damage of Superheroes and Supervillains.

After watching a few episodes of Powerless, despite the cast of Alan Tudyk, Vanessa Hudgens and a few others, the episodes use a very light framework of a plot in each episode. They only have thirty minutes and they populate those thirty minutes with giddy-based story and characters with googly eyes and goofy banter.

DC Comics on Amazon.

Here and there we hear or see references to the standard inventory of DC comics characters, but nothing about this show pulls me in. The characters themselves seem like sad, thinly thought out personalities who live in a city populated by heroes who destroy public property all around our characters, while they try to dream up inventions to help protect the population.

Con_Man_Poster, Nathan Fillion and Alan TudykIn case you have not heard, Nathan Fillion and Alan Tudyk are at it again, sort of. Right now these two have started an Indiegogo campaign to raise money for a web series they are creating, called Con Man.

Con Man is about the world of sci-fi conventions, where Tudyk’s character was on a sci-fi show that was cancelled too soon. (Sound familiar Firefly fans?) With the fictional show’s early cancellation, he’s relegated to signing head shots and appearances at conventions. All the while Fillion’s character who was in the same show, has gone on to action-hero fame and stardom.

Tudyk’s character is frustrated with Fillion’s success.

LOL…

The web series will have interesting guest stars like Sean Maher and Gina Torres, Amy Acker, Seth Green, Felicia Day, and Guardians of the Galaxy filmmaker James Gunn.

The plot sounds hilarious and seems to echo, to some degree, real life. But then again, real life scenarios tend to inspire great fiction.

Fillion and Tudyk are looking to raise $425,000 for the show’s first three episodes. Tudyk is hoping for more mula, considering he has written 10 scripts, including ones with scenes where their two characters are seen in their pretend roles, where there are scenes of Tudyk flying a spaceship and Nathan being the captain.
