You simply do NOT take it too serious.
10 March 2017 | by cesar_augustoSee all my reviews

With so many superhero series nowadays, it's increasingly common seeing people used to it all having that "nolam" realism and grittiness like Arrow, or a little less like in Flash and Supergirl, and better not mention the Marvel ones, but thing is, Powerless is not about it. It's supposed to be comedic, like a sitcon. Or even like a cartoon. People think those actors are wasting their talent, I say they are putting it to a test, acting more like cartoon characters than real people, and I respect that. This series have a lot of potential to point, mock or downright degrade DC Comics itself in a very clever and funny way.
