Product Overview

George Sunday's life took an unexpected turn when he met and fell in love with Janet Dawkins, a nurse from Earth. The thing is, George is also Thermoman, from the planet Ultron, who dashes from one catastrophe to another as he juggles his two jobs: superhero and health food shop owner. Keeping George's identity secret is very difficult for the young couple, but luckily Janet's parents and colleagues just think he is an idiot.Format: DVD MOVIE

ReviewSource DVD Verdict
Review My Hero is very much like Mork and Mindy, just without space eggs and the obscene amount of body hair...It's a formula that has been done in the past, yet can be depended on for some laughs (albeit cheap ones frequently), and this Brit variation pulls it off well...The show is funny, though undeniably corny. From the budget opening credits where Thermoman flies through space and turns to the audience to give one of those self-aware smiles to his goofy spandex outfit and the plastic helmet, My Hero sports an almost sophomoric whimsy, yet flirts with adult comedy--barely. There's some suggestive innuendo here and there, and a few folks may take umbrage with Thermoman and Janet's cohabitation, but there's nothing approaching offensive...Bottom line: It's a cheesy, funny show with some terrific actors and a steady flow of jokes that work. My Hero won't rock your world, but for what it is, it works.
