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

User Reviews

 
It's you, not me

If you didn't find this hilarious, witty, refreshing Brit comedy series to your taste, then consider that you likely have no taste.

It's cast is full of actors known for roles in brilliant shows such as Peep Show, Nathan Barley, The Office and Noel Fielding's Luxury Comedy.

The premise is great and the characters are a likeable group of second rate misfits jostling for some recognition and dealing with life as a super hero.

Watch it, you won't regret it.
