Powers. Season 1, episode 1
The first episode of the Playstation network series Powers is available on youtube. The comic has been published since 1998 and is one of the best series produced in the last 20 years. The creators, Brian Michael Bendis and Michael Avon Oeming tell tough cop/crime stories in a world with super powered heroes and villians. The tv show does a good job of adapting the third graphic novel with parts of the first. The actors are good, Sharlto Copley is Walker, the main cop, ex hero. Eddie Izzard and Noah Taylor are some of the bad guys. The special effects are better than your average SyFy channel show. I probably won't sign up for the Playstation network but will consider buying the dvd box set.
