great show
4 September 2004 | by paul__kenworthySee all my reviews

this show is absolutely hilarious, Ardal O'Hanlon is great as George Sunday / Thermoman, his role is the perfect follow on from Father Ted, the show that made him a star.

George is a superhero from the planet Ultron, who came to earth as a superhero, he doesn't know anything about human life and therefore seems to be a total idiot, this is perfect for O'Hanlon who played the same sort of role as Father Dougal Maguire in Father Ted.

There are many funny characters in this show, there is Piers, a doctor that is a nationwide celeberity, he also doesn't realize that no-one likes him. There is Mrs Raven the evil receptionist at Piers' clinic, who says something nasty at anyone she sees. Then there is Janet, she is George's wife, and she also works at the clinic, she has two parents that hate each other, Janet and George have a baby with superpowers, it can talk as well, in one episode George loses his memory and the child is then forced to save people using his superpowers.

There was many very good episodes in the four series, my favourite episode is where George goes on a super hero training course and he has a replacement called Hillary, that episode was hilarious.

Overall, a very funny TV show, with great characters, great scripts and a very good leading performance by Ardal O'Hanlon. 9/10
