Power: “Like We’re Any Other Couple” Review - AVClub

AVClub: Is Power a love story between an anti-hero and an anti-heroine? If so, bravo, because that’s a pretty brilliant concept which makes Power not unlike You’re The Worst but with a lot more melanin and fake blood. And if that’s the case, I’m comfortable with an unhappy ending for Ghost and Angela. I feel differently about Ghost and Angela than I felt about Walter White in Breaking Bad, where there were plenty of moments I thought Walt skating away from all of it would be the coolest thing ever. I don’t really want Ghost and Angela to pull off their masquerade, and while I believe they find the whole thing romantic, theirs is an objectively gross relationship between two pretty terrible people. They’re both opportunists with insatiable libidos. That’s a valid type of relationship, but there are no Burt Bacharach songs about it. I’m not rooting for Ghost and Angela.

The story is too old to be commented.
