(Apoligies if this is already a topic, I didn't see it in the first couple of pages)

Anyone watching this? It's silly but I really enjoyed last season and this one is getting good already. Last night's episode had the heroes facing the villianess Bee Sting, it looked pretty painful! Let me know predictions gang!

Yeah, I watched the first season and just figured out that the second one started. It's kinda cheesy, but I like it.

When does Stan Lee go…

"Okay, true-believers. Today's test is I want you to show me your ACTUAL SUPERPOWERS! You know, the kind that you NEED for any REAL LIFE superhero situation? Oh, and when I mean ACTUAL SUPERPOWERS, I mean ACTUAL SUPERPOWERS. Not like being able to crack your knuckles really loud, or farting out the entire national anthem. But ACTUAL FOR REAL GENUINE SUPERPOWERS! Laser-vision. Super-speed. Telekinesis. Even being able to talk to fish? Something! Not just some socially-handicapped retard in a freaking costume CLAIMING to be a superhero! Now I better see someone fly around the room, or shoot fire from their hands, or you deadbeat losers are back out on the streets begging commuters for change! When I'm through with you, even the Great Lake Avengers won't take you in!

I'm watching it TIVO style - early in the morning when no-one else is up. It's like porn - bad but addictive! :neenjah:

I have to admit, I watched the first season and it was adorable, I agree with Aurora Moon, happy campy moods abound.

I caught bits of the first coupla' episodes and this season seems MUCH cheesier, but oh well…We could all use some Velveeta every now and then. It may be kinda' lame…But, at least it's family friendly.

Then he could throw them off the top of a tall building. If they ain't flying then they're falling.

I rather liked it in the first season when they had one of the heroes turn villain. I think they should make a spin-off show called “Who Wants To Be A Supervillain?” or “Who Wants To Be A Rogue?”.

I think the saddest thing about watching the show is that I'd almost like to be on it. Not that I have some huge dream about being a superhero, but I've just noticed that Stan is fairly predictable in what he wants from a hero, and I feel like I can fake it well enough to stay on the show for a while, if not win it.

It is kind of silly, though, that the whole thing is presented as if it isn't a reality show. We all know they're not really superheroes, but they still have to go through the whole thing “in character”, not talk about the game aspect of it, or use their real names, etc.

The first season was great!

This season? Meh. Cheesy and too much product placement. Erin Esurance? WTF?

That and I have to say I don't like any of the “heroes”, their costumes, or their “powers”.

Esurance in general just bugs me. The whole company is built around nifty commercials and the fact that you can fill out the paperwork quickly. That doesn't say “trustworthy” to me. Personally, I miss Mister Mitzvah; he was really entertaining (at least, compared to the group we're left with). I think that's true of comics, too. Oftentimes the most entertaining Superheroes are those who are least qualified for Superheroing. I guess that's why I own a lot more Deadpool comics than Superman.
