TVFANATIC said that:
“office setting is establishing well, following different conflicts from within. The one thing that could get more attention is the invention part of their job”
“Usually peppy characters border on horrible because they are forced so hard on us, but Emily really turns that around.”
“His scenes with other characters is where it might take a hit” (when discussing Van Wayne)
IGN said that:
“sophomore episode is at least marginally better than the first”
“the fact remains that this series is much less entertaining than a comedy set in the DC Universe has any right to be.”
“Powerless wants to bill itself as a DC Comics-based show, it needs to make more than the absolute bare minimum effort to be one.”

Nerdist said that:
“the second episode of Powerless still felt underwhelming.”
“played more like a normal workplace situational comedy–the kind we’ve seen countless times before”
“ still plenty of great lines and funny exchanges, especially from Christina Kirk and Alan Tudyk who were hysterical every time they opened their mouths”
