Who Wants To Be A Superhero?

Don’t forget, It's coming back for a second season on July 25, 2007. Who Wants To Be A Superhero?

Here’s the trailer to remind you why the first season was so good... for many different reasons.

Whaddya mean "wants to be"? I am.

Great line up. I like the Jewish super hero who is afraid of his mother.

This show is one of the few things that would get me to spring for cable.

A buddy of mine kept me updated last season. I really enjoyed the story of the 'mission' where they had to go from point 'a' to point 'b'in the fastest time, but the ones that stopped to help the little girl were the real winners.

I also really like the diversity of the entrants. Except for the fact that they were all nerds of one kind or another.

isis - yes you are...! I remember seeing you on TV as a kid. Plus your DVD is coming out on July 24, one day before Who Wants to be a Superhero season 2 begins.

See here for the DVD.

Love your site by the way.

arkonbey - yeah the show was really about ethics rather than your usual reality show backstabbing. That alone made it fun.

When will quality-tv-man save us from all this reality crap?

Oh, that's right, quality-tv-man was killed by The Producer and Doctor Bottom Line, using their intelligence reducing ray.

od – Well, to at least defend the first season at little (as I haven’t seen the second yet), It was the only reality TV show where I sat through every episode. Granted it was only six shows, but that made it more like a miniseries and thus more watchable. I kinda’ liked that they had a small budget, so they used their imagination to make it stretch. And as I said before the show was about ethics rather than backstabbing. That’s why I liked it.

I'm sure it was good. Everyone watches at least ONE reality series. It's the overall glut of them that concerns me, and I see no end in sight. In fact I just auditioned to be the host of a reality show. Sigh.

Well, all the the best reality shows have actors on them...
