Storyline

A single-camera comedy about coming home again - when home is a comic book store in a suburban strip mall. Warring brothers Terry and Peter are forced to take over the reins of their father's failing comic book store after his untimely death. While Peter remained at home working alongside his father and emulating all of his nerdy ways, Terry escaped his youth as the high school punching bag and went to Harvard business school, never looking back. Now Terry must confront the family and friends he abandoned and the geek culture he has fought so hard to forget. The brothers try to put the past behind them, keep dad's dream alive and not kill each other in the process. Written by Anonymous

Nerdy fun with cliché characters
26 June 2011 | by (Austria) – See all my reviews

Why this is rated so low is beyond me. "Almost heroes" is actually a funny show. It's about two brothers who run the comic store of their late father. The store is located in a small mall, which is frequented by your randomly weird and neurotic people. Acting is fine, jokes are not bad at all and some are even really good too. If you like stuff like IT crowd, Kevin smith movies or the Big Bang Theory, you might find an enjoyable time waster in this show. And if you think Spawn should be given away as a free complimentary comic with the purchase of a cup of coffee, you are geek enough to enjoy it more than others...

There are much worse shows out there, so I hope this one picks up some fans and keeps going for a while.
