Funny and Original
16 November 2003 | by See all my reviews

My Hero is a classic example that if you wait....several years a good show will come along. I am now so sick of "reality t.v." that I turn over and watch the news, desperate or what. When i first watched My Hero I must admit I was bored, so I sat down and watched it. After that I was hooked, it was funny and original and I looked forward to it, I can't understand people who its sad or boring, its a piece of pure comic genius that I hope the BBC will continue to show it.
