The perfect antidote to Hollywood
14 February 2009 | by (Japan) – See all my reviews

No Heroics is a British TV series about super-heroes with rather limited powers and extreme human frailties. Very funny in a British satire style, the 'drama' revolves around a pub where the super-heroes are not allowed to use their powers, instead talking themselves up and competing with each other for fame and recognition. Full of foul language and political incorrectness, this show is the perfect antidote to Hollywood self-absorption and self-importance with Marvel heroes as it makes fun of itself. Mooncalf McGuire as Spidey is laid to rest here as the heroes bicker, have sex, fail at saving people and generally live like normal people. Well written and acted, this show will make you laugh, and then laugh some more.
