Perhaps I should be ashamed to admit this, but lately I’ve been following, and getting quite into, a reality elimination show. In own defense, though, it’s Who Wants to be a Superhero? It’s executive produced by Stan Lee, and isn’t really very reality-based. So why is it so interesting? I can’t really explain it – Major Victory points at pigeons, there’s a character called Fat Momma, and one of the contestants shrieks like a monkey. I downloaded the first episode off iTunes because it was free, and both the girl and I were surprised at how enjoyable it is. It doesn’t have much in the way of “they’re living together in a house, let’s get some bitchy dirt on each other”, except that The Iron Enforcer, apparently, smells quite bad. Since Cell Phone Girl’s elimination last week, something I’m still quietly fuming over, by the way, my new tip for victory – and a Stan Lee-drawn comic and movie – is Major Victory. And whilst we’re here, screw Creature. God, she’s annoying.
Who Wants to be a Superhero is on the Sci-Fi Channel on Thursdays at .
