The Cambridge Geek

Powerless

Two episodes in, I'm enjoying this a fair bit. It's essentially a re-run of Better Off Ted in the DC universe, and since I miss Ted, it's filling a gap.

It's obviously been written with the nerd in mind, and the references come fairly thick and fast, but it seems to be trying fairly hard to hold some substance beyond just the surface layer. Whether it achieves that is probably dependent on if the characters get beyond the one note.

Vanessa Hudgens is a little annoying, and whether this is a character arc or just how she's acting it could make or break it. Mind you, though, Alan Tudyk might make the whole thing worthwhile. After all, they're only twenty-ish minutes long and he is enjoyable as always.
