This review is from: My Hero - BBC Series 3 - Episodes 1-5 - Starring Ardal O'Hanlon, Emily Joyce, Hugh Dennis and Lou Hirsch [DVD] (DVD)
Probably the best Britcom this side of the millenium, My Hero puts a whole new spin on Superheroes. With the main character an alien, this creates a lot of jokes and scenarios similar to Mork And Mindy, but thanks to characters like the wonderfully cruel Mrs Raven, the devilishly tight Arnie, and the insane Tyler, the show maintains its freshness and becomes an original show, well plotted with lots of humour.
It's a shame that only Series 3 was released on DVD, and hopefully the others will be soon. Well, except for the ghastly Series 6, where James Dreyfus took over the reins. Shocking.
Ardal O'Hanlon does a wonderful job, and makes everything incredibly watchable. If the Beeb can bring out his 5 years, they'll be doing everyone a favour.
