No Heroics

What's this?
A British sitcom that has been airing since 2008, originally on ITV2, but now also on ITV1. Follows a bunch of superheroes operating in the UK.

And these probably aren't superheroes that you'd want to be rescued by either.

How have I been finding it?

I've been watching it for a couple of weeks now and there's a great deal of adult humour in the show, but they handle it quite well. I'm a bit of a fan of comic books and stuff with superheroes in general, and it's nice to be watching something that deals with the area in such a tongue-in-cheek manner.

The dysfunctional heroes and villains are hilarious, and the interpretation of how a public would respond to having such people around is extremely comic.

Should we watch it?
Well, the show is made by Tiger Aspect, who bought the world such things as Teachers and Badly Dubbed Porn. There is comedy in their blood.
