Superhero Sitcom Dies a Quiet Death
Powerless, the NBC sitcom set in the DC superhero universe, has been pulled from the network schedule. Nine episodes had aired so far, to declining ratings. The remaining three episodes are now unscheduled, even though one of those had a guest appearance by Adam West.
No big loss, since the show was pretty bad, but I was actually about to give it another try. Episodes 7 and 8 featured a guest appearance by Green Fury, played by Natalie Morales, whom I’ve liked since she starred in The Middleman. That was one of the show’s biggest problems: the casting was good, but the writing was terrible.
