This show never fails to make me laugh
23 April 2007 | by azcowboysingrSee all my reviews

This show is one of the funniest I've ever seen, it never fails to make me laugh. I've heard it said that Americans can't understand British humor, but My Hero (along with Benny Hill, Keeping up Appearances, Open all Hours, Are you Being Served, & a couple of others) is one that I never miss. The entire cast gives their best in every episode I've seen. The actor playing "Tyler" drove me crazy trying to figure out where I had seen him before, then it suddenly came to me...he was Capt. Fredrickson in the "Sharpe's" series! the character of "Mrs. Raven" is an absolute delight to watch...reminds me of one of my late aunts. Anyway, if you haven't watched this show, I highly recommend it, just bear in mind that the whole show is a parody of the superhero genre.
