Why Raising Kanan Is The Best Power Show


Power Book III: Raising Kanan ended his second season last night with an explosive (literally and figuratively) ending. By far it was the best episode of the series so far and left me in my feelings that we have to wait until next summer for season 3.


By far Raising Kanan is the best spinoff and possibly the best series in the Power Universe in my opinion. However, when I ask people do they watch it or when I see the social media chatter. It does not get as much love as the original Power or even Power Book II: Ghost. People show Tommy’ series Force more love in its first season. I’m not sure why that is, but people are missing out for damn sure. Here are a few reasons you should watch Raising Kanan.





First and foremost, Kanan’s mother Raquel Thomas aka Raq. Played by Patina Miller, she commands every scene she’s in especially when she faces off against men. You honestly believe Raq is a dominating queen pin in a testosterone heavy world who can hold her own. She’s cutthroat and ambitious, but her words are like a dagger which cuts deep. Especially when she runs down her two brothers and Lts. Marv and Lou Lou. Raq is one woman not to fuck with!
