    It was OK. I don't see why everyone loves it so much. It wasn't very smart or deep or well-directed.

    OK, the premise is not too bad, an alien superhero living on earth and coping with a family and other human beings, but despite this, this show just fell flat on it's face.This is just silly and not in a funny way like Father Ted and The Brittas Empire. The laughter track is irritating, i could never warm to any of the characters and i always feel like i'm watching a pantomime (which is fine if you are at the theatre) The receptionist cracks a few good jokes and Piers has potential but i find George's wife irritating and dull, the American guy pointless, and the other's just boring. Ardal o'hanlon is a great actor and his talents are wasted here. His Irish accent sometimes raises a smile but nothing more.My dad watches this but i have to leave the room when he does because it makes me cringe, you can see the jokes coming a mile off and the babies just scare me! Not cute at all! Overrated, i can't believe it's been going this long.

    Wow. If a person JUST read the IMDb scores and not the reviews, they'd have the impression that this series stinks--with a score in the 4.0 range! I don't understand this, as it is one of the better British TV shows I have seen. While it's not as great as FATHER TED (also starring Ardal O'Hanlon) and it's not especially deep, but it is very very funny and original. Perhaps as another reviewer said, the earlier episodes aren't quite as good because the show hadn't yet hit its stride, but this is common of many sit-coms. How can anyone hate a show with bizarro neighbor Tyler, cranky and evil Mrs. Raven or the self-absorbed Dr. Piers Crispin?! There must be some evil conspiracy afoot to get you NOT to watch the show--try it yourself--if you like to laugh, you'll love the show.Perhaps another problem with the show is that Ardal's O'Hanlon's previous series was so good and so perfect that in contrast some are disappointed. All I know is that it's unfair to use such harsh language about a harmless and cute show. Heck, The Donnie and Marie Show and many REALLY bad shows have more favorable comments, so there's something amiss here.

    As I write this review (Jan 2005), My Hero has just started a new series and is usually shown on Friday evenings, when all silly comedies are shown on BBC1.It is about a rather intelligent baby that can, amongst other things, fly and, worse of all, talk. This is done by "putting" an older person's mouth over the baby's, which looks totally stupid and makes me go funny when you see its teeth when it talks.The BBC has done some good comedies over the years but this has to be one of the worst and silliest. Come on BBC, you can do much better than this. Everybody should be ashamed.

    Whether he's an idiot priest or a superhero from another planet that just doesn't get it, Ardal is hillarious.When I first saw this show, I thought it was kind of dumb and cheap, but it soon grew on me. The show is about a Super hero who comes from the planet Ultron. He lives on earth running an herbal medicine shop. He falls in love with the woman he saved, but because she thinks he's daft, he has to prove to her that he's Thermalman and eventually he moves in with her.In the second season they have a child who talks, but since they have to keep everything else a secret, the kid is a bit of a risk.It reminds me of a mix between The Adventures of Lois and Clark and Third Rock from the Sun.I give this show **** out of five.
