In a statement, Sony marketing vice president John Koller said the reception for the first season, which debuted earlier this year, "has been incredible."

He went on to say that original programming will be a central point of focus for Sony going forward.

"We believe original content will continue to be a key pillar as we broaden the value proposition for PlayStation Plus, and we're excited for what’s to come with season two of Powers," he explained.

Powers stars District 9 actor Sharlto Copley, alongside Susan Heyward and Eddie Izzard, among others.

The first episode of Powers season one is available for free.

@straightcur: I'm sure that it will end up in Canada as soon as the value of their currency goes up. Until then its a loss and a waste of resources according to Sony.

Looks like this was better than expected. I didn't even bother looking at it but now that it's gaining steam I will at least try it.

Watched the whole thing as they released eps. Excellent show. Triphammer is like a believable Tony Stark character that is pretty funny and has an interesting relationship with Chris Walker (Diamond). Good first season effort. Hope they up the budget for effects a bit. Wolf is like wolverine in some ways and a more interesting character since relatively unknown to me until now. I didn't find the use of harsh language overused...underused really, considering half the situations they find themselves in I would be laying F-bombs out like carpet bombing runs too.

The series was awesome. I'm just a bit upset that it was only 10 episodes and we have to wait until next year for season two. Hopefully season two will have more episodes. At least 16?


Anyway, good job Playstation. 10+


Btw, the series reminded me of the recent battlestar galactica (BG) from the scifi channel. When I watched BG I had a ball counting how many times 'Frak' was said during an episode. Powers uses the F-bomb just as much as Frak. Let the tally begin. :)

Finished the first season, and I can't wait to see what happens! A lot of people talk about how this show has "potential". Now, it's time for them to follow-through on that promise!

Watched the first rpisode last night... Pretty darn good... Very excited to watch the rest... You just have to make it past the first few minutes of wonky exposition (including bad cg and a newsreel with mario lopez lol).
