The show just seemed like a knock-off from some other reality shows. Was hoping to see something more thrilling and exciting.

They Definitely should make like 5 more seasons ASAP!!! This is SUCH a fascinating show! Stan Lee's a boss and so is Daniel Browning Smith (also a boss name).

This show treats its subjects with respect and admiration. It's a celebration of uniqueness and an exploration of science. Not all of the sections are treated equally, but that's okay — some don't deserve the amount of time and energy others do. All in all, a fascinating show.

In some of the people in this documentary have questionable abilities, like the Human Stun Gun episode. They should have never produced it. The first episode got me hooked. The Dennis Rogers segment "worlds strongest man" is the best one. He is a very small man that can produce an insane amount of force. That took him to a university and had him scientifically tested. He inspired me to train and attempt some of his feats. I can tear a deck of playing cards now and also roll a frying pan. Just watch season 1 episode 1 for this humble mutant. I'm gonna buy season 2 now.

Pros: Seeing people do amazing feats in real time with limited editing.

Cons: Some of the feats are gimmicky and questionable. Also, Amazon, please give an entire listing of all the segments per episode and not just the first one.

Two of the stars given were just because I am a Stan Lee fan. This show is in no way original. This reminds me very much of Ripley's Believe it or Not only more boring.

There is a lot of unnecessary exposition used to pad the show so it seems longer than it is. While I like the host in general he comes across as rather one dimensional. I agree with others who feel that if a scientific approach is to be used a scientist of some kind might be more appropriate for a host.

I guess a part of me still wants to be a superhero but I was an electrician when I was younger. I've been shocked and I didn't just chill out like that guy did. Another guy was working on a house across the street got shocked and his hands had melted metal in them and he was taken to the hospital. He came back two weeks later only to have a seizure in the middle of the street walking to another one of the houses and we never saw him again. So, in particular that was pretty amazing to me.

Even if you've seen this stuff like this before, it's still amazing and gets my mind moving. I like the superhuman/Stan Lee spin they put on it too.
