TV Shows - My Hero

My Hero is a british sitcom that focuses on the struggle of the superhero George Sunday (whose secret identity is Thermoman), an alien from the planet Ultron, as he adjusts to life on Earth. He meets his money-loving cousin Arnie, whose powers were taken from him after he started charging people for his services, Tyler, a crazy neighbor who believes that fictional characters live with him in his flat, and Janet, whom George falls in love with and later marries. George was portrayed by Ardal O'Hanlon from seasons 1-5. In season 6, he was portrayed by James Dreyfus. The original run was from February 4, 2000 through September 10, 2006.

1 As for the question as to why O'Hanlon was replaced- an article on the subject I read a couple of years ago mentioned that it was O'Hanlon's decision to leave the show. Not sure why. I don't recall the article going into all that. -- Submitted By: (Friedrich_Feuerstein) on March 3, 2010, 2:05 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
2 Not to knock the talent of James Dreyfus, but this show was great until Ardal O'Hanlon left. The 'canon' explanation for the different appearance was acceptable but the chemistry between between the characters just wasn't quite there. Switching gears, has anyone ever noticed how similar in some respects this show was to 'Mork & Mindy'? > Wacky male alien comes to Earth > Alien falls for Earth woman and begins 'shacking up' with her > Alien has a contentious relationship with Earth woman's Parent(s) > Local Crazy Guy who knows Alien's identity but no one believes him because he's crazy > Wacky older lady > Earth woman and Alien have offspring (who are just as strange as their Alien father) I'm sure there are more similarities, but I suppose there were enough differences to make 'My Hero' a unique slant on the story. Regardless, I enjoyed My Hero during it's O'Hanlon years. After that, it 'boned.' -- Submitted By: (Friedrich_Feuerstein) on March 3, 2010, 2:02 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
