‘Powerless’: ‘Wayne Dream Team’ Review


The Wayne Securities team is back in the second episode of NBC’s Powerless, entitled “Wayne Dream Team.”

Emily (Vanessa Hudgens) may have saved everyone’s job in last week’s series premiere, but she’s still haven’t a tough time fitting in. Trying to be both a boss and a friend to her team even though Jackie (Christina Kirk) insists it can’t be done, Emily is struggling with both. Her struggle comes at an unfortunate time, as the team is supposed to be working on a big project with a rapidly approaching deadline, but they’re getting distracted with a Superhero Fantasy League. When she tries to get them back to work without jeopardizing their possible friendship, it all blows up in her face.

Meanwhile, Van Wayne (Alan Tudyk) is desperately trying to find a way to make it into the corporate Wayne Dream Team photograph.

There’s a lot to talk about in this week’s episode of Powerless, so hit the next button below to follow along as we break down the highlights and critical moments of “Wayne Dream Team.”

      Nice! Didn’t catch that one.

    Sorry but this is simply awful. A bunch of poor employees who should have been fired long ago and the “new girl” who is too nice to do it. They don’t deserve her friendship and they don’t deserve to have jobs. I’ll give it a few more episodes but I doubt whether I–or anyone else–will be watching next year at this time. Prime fodder for cancellation.
