    I like it! Reminds me a lot of Justice League International. In fact, there’s a guy there who looks a lot like the real Blue Beetle in green.

    I liked it better when it was called “Super Hero Happy Hour” by Dan Taylor.

    Richard, we do NOT want BBC America to pick this up. They’ll cut or bleep out all the good stuff and then bury or ignore it like they have all their other good comedies.

    This needs to be picked up by SHOWTIME and run as-is.

    Also, they should pick up PEEP SHOW.

    Also, I want a pony.

    My preference would be for a Stade-side studio to pick up the Hero Happy Hour comic and produce it for an American television series. Then maybe Chris Fason and I could sleep at night.

    If anyone can make this incredibly tired premise funny, it’d be the brits. The problem with this premise done in America so far (The Tick, Men of Mystery, Hancock, that superhero girlfriend movie, etc etc etc) is that they never go far enough. There’s a lot of comedy to be mined there, but as always Americans are just too tame with it. This looks like it might actually go all the way.

    Also, does every person that comes up with this yearly premise think they’re being clever?

    Actually, I think the problem is that most of them aren’t very funny.

    Except for The Tick. Which was, in fact, hysterically funny, spoofing both superhero tropes and finding its own style of humor to boot:

    By contrast, No Heroics looks like bad schoolboy humor. I’m honestly shocked so many people seem interested after watching the awful trailer.

  7. The Beat says

    I should note that NO HEROICS is on ITV2 so it will NEVER be on BBC America.

    This is something that’s live action that would play better as a comic book.
