Power book 2 ghost: GO WATCH!

This is a very good show, but some sex

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (1 ):
Kids say (2 ):

This dramatic crime series, which picks up the narrative a few days after the Power finale, shifts the focus away from the family patriarch and centers around Tariq and his mother. Adding to the fray is the double-life Tariq is trying to lead as a college student, which brings with it all the social and romantic turbulence one would expect.

Some Power fans will miss Ghost, but his legacy is evident throughout the series. Meanwhile, the addition of cast members like Monet Stewart Tejada (played by hip hop artist Mary J. Blige) creates the potential for some new rivalries and unexpected plot twists. Overall, Power Book II: Ghost stands on its own, and offers some solid mature entertainment.
