Entertaining but not very clever, 1 October 2013
Author: wikipediacabal from United States

The small and not terribly smart production team searched the planet, searching for evidence that there are mutants among us--regular humans who have been endowed by nature with exceptional capabilities. After three seasons, we know this: there are not mutants among us.

Instead they have found a jumble of strong men, memory savants, typical spirit mediums with their tricks, fakirs who can endure extreme pain, et cetera. They also found a long list of not terribly skeptical scientists of some sort to help investigate the claims.

These tend to be "sports physiologists" or "human performance researchers" when they have titles at all. The scientists don't say too much and often what they have to say is something to the effect that "what this person is doing is beyond what is possible" which is not a scientific comment. Sometimes the "scientific testing" is total nonsense like in 01x01 when the host tests the electrical resistance of a man's body and accepts the nonsensical values measured as a legitimate reason for the results.

The show's budget is tiny, which has grave results for both the educational value and the entertainment value of the show. In terms of education, it doesn't appear that the show has the research and writing resources to seriously investigate any of the subjects. The crew can only afford special lights and slow mo cameras for an occasional segment; most of them use the same garden variety gear with visual effects coming from overlaid graphics, which are repetitive.

At the end of every episode the host and Stan Lee, two perfectly unqualified guys, solemnly inform us that the trick of the day "is truly superhuman." After just a few episodes there's not even a question in your mind that's what will happen.
