Editorial Reviews

Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No, it's health-food shop-owner George Sunday, alias the world's most famous superhero, Thermoman! Thermoman, a down-to-earth superhero in love, is back for another series of out-of-this world comedy adventures. In Series Two, Janet tells her parents who George really is, which causes more problems than it solves; a long-lost fiancee and an enemy from planet Ultron cause trouble; cousin Arnie steals the Crown Jewels; and wedding plans are afoot now that Janet is to have Thermoman's baby.

I laughed so hard I cried!
James D'amario
In this series, he is somewhat brighter than his classic role as Dougal, but due to his unfamiliarity with Earth customs (due to being a REAL alien!)

I introduced my family to this hilarious comedy by taping shows from PBS in 2003, which was a turbulent year for us. This show brought a welcome respite from the troubles. The biggest laugh of all came from the last episode on this disc, where the couple are forced to marry before the birth of their child.

What a fantastic surprise to find that all 7 episodes are in widescreen format (despite the packaging on the box and printed on the disc itself declaring full frame format).

So, keep 'em coming. Let's have season 3 already!

Brilliant stuff! MY HERO keeps on with its hilarious lampooning of the superhero mythos. This is the second season (or series), and while I've already had repeat viewings of these episodes on PBS, I must say that, even now, they are still never less than marvelously entertaining. I just saw them again on this dvd, and again laughed myself silly. Our superhero from the planet Ultron, Thermoman, is still haplessly befuddled by Earthly customs, and still tends to take things too bloody literally. Translation: Thermoman is still pure gold when it comes to the funny bits.

Thermoman doesn't really have a gallery of evil masterminds, although he does get a supervillain of sorts in the form of an old classmate (in "Nemesis"). Instead Thermoman can be found averting natural disasters and fetching take-out meals for himself and Janet from all over the globe. The fun thing about MY HERO is that its premise is all about how an all-powerful superhero copes with mundane, everyday stuff. The show wallows in a Douglas Adams-ian sense of the ridiculous, specifically in the series's introduction of bizarre Ultron traditions. However, the themes touched on are universal enough to draw in everyone, while keeping very much within its British sensibilities. And, thru all the jokes and the poking fun of, the show never falters in its presentation of George and Janet as a couple truly in love. Yep, he's a costumed alien crimefighter and she's a normal girl from Northolt, England, but, amidst the wacky shenanigans, the show reveals a relationship being constantly worked on by these two, despite their innate differences. Or maybe I like this show so much, I'm reading stuff into it, giving credit where it isn't due? I dunno, except that I really dig George and Janet.

George Sunday is really a Superhero from the planet Ultron. This sitcom follows his adventures with his girlfriend trying to understand earth culture and customers. George is curious and innocent and so very funny. A great britcom for your collection.

My Hero Series Two is the further development of the characters in the First Series. The acting by Ardal O'Hannon fits perfectly in his alterego "Thermoman." He uses his understated style to create many very funny and clever situations. The supporting cast fits well into the overall picture and helps focus the comedic style of all included. It's my wish that Series Three and Four will be available soon in the USA.

Series Two of My Hero has started to hit its stride. While series one is great, the comic writing in series two is really coming into its own. Lots of clever jokes and great timing on part of the cast.

A few reasons why I won't give it five stars: While in the first series, the plots were centered around Thermoman adapting to life on Earth, the second series has more farfetched plots and characters. I personally enjoyed it more when the storyline was centered around every-day occurances.

The audio on the DVD is a bit dodgy as well. There were some scenes where the sound fluctuates so much so, you have to keep raising and lowering the volume to be able to hear the dialogue correctly.

Also, and this is what bothers me most: No extra features!!! There is closed-caption and there is a section devoted to only three of the cast member's biographies, but the print on these biographies (mind you, I'm watching My Hero on a 42-inch plasma), is so small, I found it more rewarding looking up the cast on IMdB than trying to make out what the DVD said. It would have been absolutely great to have bloopers and deleted scenes bonus footage...after all, it is a comedy, so there's bound to be some outtakes. Director and cast commentary would have been great, too. It's a shame that no real extra features come with this series.

Just the same though, keep My Hero coming out on region one for us Yanks, BBC!!!

I have just finished watching the second season of My Hero. It is very funny and at least as, if not funnier than, the first season.

The writers do a great job in how the dialog is presented so that George can misunderstand what is being said in hilarious ways. This is not exactly sophisticated comedy and is sometimes a little silly, but it is always very funny.

Two of my favorite characters in the series are Tyler and Mrs. Raven. Tyler is a real nutcase, but harmless. That Mrs. Raven is amusingly wicked, and her hair is so bizarre - is it a bad wig from a clothes dummy from the 1960's or do they do that to her real hair? The British always put in details like this that just work so well.

There are further seasons, but I don't think they have been released - hope that changes very soon.
