Watch the first episode of PlayStation's Powers for free on YouTube

Sony's PlayStation original series Powers, the live-action TV show based on the comic book of the same name, is exclusive to PlayStation Plus subscribers. But if you're not already a member of Sony's subscription service, you can watch the first episode of Powers for free on YouTube.

The first episodes of Powers, based on Brian Michael Bendis and Michael Avon Oeming's super-powered police procedural, hit PlayStation Network today. The series stars Sharlto Copley (District 9) and Susan Heyward (The Following) as Chicago homicide detectives who handle cases involving "powers" — individuals with super powers. The cast also includes Michelle Forbes, Noah Taylor and Eddie Izzard.

Our review of the first three episodes of Powers says the PlayStation-exclusive series "shows significant improvement during its second and third episodes," so even if the pilot doesn't do it for you, there's hope for the future.

To see all 10 episodes as they roll out over the coming weeks, you'll need to be an active PS Plus subscriber.
