Dispatched from his basement room on an errand for his widowed mother, slacker Jeff might discover his destiny (finally) when he spends the day with his unhappily married brother as he tracks his possibly adulterous wife.
Funny, sometimes charming, but a word of warning...
"Our Hero" is an often funny, sweet-natured teen series that has a goofy charm. The 'zine hook is somewhat precious (and now definitely dated), but it isn't especially crucial to enjoying the show. However, Cara Pifko, though a delightful actress, is far too old for the lead role -- she was in her mid-twenties when this was filmed, and is unsuccessful trying to play about ten years younger. A few other "teen" actors also appear to be in their mid-to-late twenties: one semi- regular 'older' boyfriend was over thirty (unconvincingly playing twenty) making some scenes unintentionally creepy. But if you can avoid his episodes, and get past the idea of 26-year-olds still somehow being in high school, there's a solidly-written show here.
