The series is a frothy 10-episode ode to millennials and an American ideal of Paris. There is little in the show that holds ties to reality. It’s as if the show’s creator, Darren Star—known for “Sex and the City”—sought to create a fantasy experience completely removed from the realities of being a 20-something abroad in Paris.

The instant picture this brings to mind is of a thrilling battle between throngs of superheroes and supervillains filled with tons of explosions and unique superpowers slamming together for a fast-paced, end of the world style battle. The premise here is exceptional based on those details alone, setting the creators of “Project Power” up for an intensely exciting and culturally relevant piece of art. If this writeup so far has managed to make you excited to watch, I’m sorry, I was too.
