Power: The US TV Show that made me ignore socials and thesis work

I rarely get to have some time to watch any series or movies, but when I do, it doesn't go well. I've had dozens of unfinished series on Netflix; I either lose interest or get bored. But that was not the case with POWER.

In fact, while browsing my Netflix collection, I have clicked on the entry by mistake and the show started; but I thought I'd give it a try. One episode, two, four, I was hooked.

My sleep schedule got fucked up, I slept at 5 am (instead of 12 am), I didn't set up a meeting with a supervisor, and I ditched socials.

If I were to describe this show in one word, I'd say 'original'. The show is really unique and presents something you have never seen before. I fell in love with the characters, direction, plot and the brilliant acting.

I've started the show on the 10th of August and finished it on the 20th of August (so total 10 days). Yet, three remaining episodes left which will air every Sunday.

Here is the plot of the show from Wikipedia/Google: 'It appears James "Ghost" St. Patrick has it all -- a drop-dead gorgeous wife, a stunning Manhattan penthouse, and the power and success that come with owning hot new nightclub Truth. But a closer look reveals a man living a double life. When Ghost isn't tending to his Fortune 500 business, he's catering to clients of another operation: a drug empire that serves only the rich and influential. While loyal sidekick Tommy protects the cash-cow narcotics venture at all costs, Ghost's new reality is using Truth as more than a front to launder money. It's a way out of the drug game and into a legitimate life with his family, even if everything he loves becomes unknowingly threatened. "Power" is co-executive produced by Curtis "50 Cent" Jackson (who also co-stars) and show creator Courtney Kemp Agboh ("The Good Wife").'
