Storyline

London. An ordinary city, with one small difference: superheroes - commonly called 'capes' - exist. But apart from their powers, they're ordinary people, with the same problems the rest of us have. They spend much of their downtime in the basement bar The Fortress ('superheroes only: no masks, no powers, no heroics') but when not there or on duty they garden, go shopping, and do the laundry just like everyone else. No Heroics focuses on four friends and the trials and tribulations of their lives, but these superheroes are at best B-listers, and constantly insulted and bullied by the arrogant Devlin - Excelsor, the most successful cape of his generation. Written by Joules Taylor

The perfect antidote to Hollywood
14 February 2009 | by 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.
