Storyline

After Mr. Awesome announces his retirement as leader of The Awesomes, a superhero task force, his not-so-super son Prock (Seth Meyers) fills the roster with previously rejected applicants, but despite their incompetence and general lack of ability, the team must band together to battle diabolical villains, the ever-present paparazzi, and a less-than-ideal reputation as second-class superheroes.

Earnestly Awesome
12 August 2013 | by rwhaltSee all my reviews

I created an IMDb account for the sole reason of voicing my opinion about this show. To be blunt, this series is only 3 episodes in, and I'm loving it. As the only other review so far on IMDb points out, this isn't Family Guy, The Simpsons, or American Dad w/ super powers... and that's a good thing. Here's why.

I enjoy shows like the ones I just mentioned, but very rarely do you find a show like this, with the courage to propose continuity without taking itself too seriously. This show isn't cynical of it's world or it's audience, and it's frankly refreshing to find a superhero comedy that isn't willing to sacrifice it's characters just for the quickest low-brow guhawf.

The Awesomes is very earnest in it's desire to present an new Super Hero comedy that isn't dark or gritty, but also isn't an acidic parody of the genre. So far it surprises with it's general lack of foulness, and isn't willing to compromise it's vision by catering to the lowest common denominator. I say give it a watch and here's hoping this show will get the audience it deserves, as well as keep away from compromising creator vision, which would be awesome!
