Powerless - Win, Luthor, Draw TV review

Cancelled because it was too smart, funny, and interesting compared to the rest of NBC’s current line-up, one of the remaining unaired episodes of Powerless hit he Internet this weekend. Featuring Adam West (who previously provided the narration for the show’s pilot episode) in a guest-role as Wayne Enterprises Chairman West, the episode marks one of the actor’s last appearances before his death. While the circumstances for the episode finally seeing the light of day are unfortunate, the episode is one of the show’s best and gives us glimpse at where the show could have gone in further exploring the DCU had it not been cancelled.

Powerless - Emergency Punch-Up television review

Sometimes we all need to vent. Not making it out of the Wayne Securities offices in time for the company retreat Emily (Vanessa Hudgens) spent weeks planning, her team gets locked in the building during Dr. Psycho’s gas attack. Emily’s attempts to make the best out of a bad situation lead her into getting dosed with the gas which makes the normally conscientious co-worker brutal in her honesty to her teammates who, if they wish to save her, will have to make the ultimate sacrifice… by singing Kelly Clarkson karaoke.

Powerless - Green Furious TV review

Charm City isn’t a great place to be a woman, super-powered or otherwise. Emily (Vanessa Hudgens) makes a new friend after stepping in to save Green Fury (Natalie Morales) from the tabloid media (who only want to discuss her recent break-up with another super-hero). When she butts up against her own glass ceiling at her first board meeting, Emily hatches a plan to use Green Fury’s celebrity to solve both of their problems by rebranding her as a strong hero and the star of Wayne Securities new ad campaign. Of course, things don’t exactly go to plan.

Powerless - Van v Emily: Dawn of Justice television review

The lead story of “Van v Emily: Dawn of Justice” could fit into any office comedy. Revolving around Emily‘s (Vanessa Hudgens) desire to get her own office and Van (Alan Tudyk) being threatened of a subordinate’s success, the pair square off in the most ridiculous way possible – by competing against each other by using a child’s playset. Loosing the competition, but breaking Van’s ego in the process, it falls to Emily to put her boss back together again. There are some nice touches here, like Van going through a ridiculous assortment of trophies obviously purchased for him by his parents and Jackie’s (Christina Kirk) reveal of the evil truth behind the employee of the month award.

Powerless - Cold Season television review

Over Teddy‘s (Danny Pudi) objections, Emily (Vanessa Hudgens) submits his newest invention for company-wide awards. Unaware for how her emotional employee takes the prospect of both success and failure, things get frosty in the office (and not only because the beginning of summer means the arrival of cold-based villains who begin freezing everything in sight). In an expected, but still a humorous twist, Teddy’s heat gloves do come in handy with the return of Crimson Fox (Deanna Russo) leaving all well and good in the offices of Wayne Securities once again.
