In general, I’m not feeling Power this season. Everyone is getting on my nerves. I don’t like this Jamie and Angie thing. Like, other than sex, which doesn’t even seem all that good anymore, what do they have? Their relationship has gone from living in a fantasy to real world problems, which is real life, but it’s just not fun anymore. They’re staying in Angie’s teeny apartment and living on top of each other, Angie can’t cook, demands of work put the relationship on the back burner, and they’re constantly annoyed with each other. Oh, and they’re both lying by omission to each other all the time. The one thing Angie has going for her is that she believes in Jamie and his attempt to live by the law, which Tasha couldn’t fathom. I wonder how many times James has thought about the 80/20 rule. Tasha wasn’t perfect, but she had a lot that Angie lacks. Maybe Jamie should have tried harder to get Tasha on board with his living clean vision.
I also never liked Holly, and there’s a lot of her this season. She’s also more annoying than ever before, badgering Tommy to kill Ghost, his best friend from at least junior high school. There’s a lot of Tommy too, who I like, but prefer in smaller doses. I also don’t like Tasha having Lala involved in some nefarious ish that Tasha hasn’t told her about. I get the logic that it’s best that Lala has plausible deniability if something goes awry with the business. But, it’s still grimy.
What I do like? I actually love Annika Noni Rose and I enjoy watching her take on an unexpected role and kill it, but without knowing her end game or motivation, I don’t get her either… yet. The scenes with her and Fiddy seem like a whole separate show. I also never liked Fiddy on the show.Read More
