Ok, it is about as corny as some of the stuff the WWE will feed you on a Monday night but in some weird way the nerd in me is really loving it. So what happened tonight was great. I loved the dogs challenge in which monkey woman went for nearly ten minutes with dogs ripping at her. My gosh what a tough girl.

They all go make overs with there costumes. All of them but one were pretty good.

They finally dumped Iron Enforcer as a superhero but Stan Lee says he's figured out that he's not a superhero but a super villain. He's been transformed into the Dark Enforcer. Wow, a turn. I'm actually interesting in the corny show. I can't wait to see what happens next week.

I'm guessing that the new "Dark Enforcer" character will also be used as the villian in the comic book that the winning super-hero will be in.

As for the show, I originally thought it was going to be god awfull. But to my surprise, I've found the show enjoyable to watch.......and my 2 children (ages 9 & 12) absolutely love the show and are always asking when the next episode is going to be on.

Was this really only #2? For some reason I thought it was #3. I thought there was an audition-oriented show I missed, but maybe not.

It was really obvious where they were going with the one bad costume, just as it was obvious last time where they were going with the crying child. But I don't think "honesty" is really that important a quality in a superhero--an honest-in-all-situations one wouldn't keep his secret identity for ten minutes. And this wasn't a situation where the dishonesty had any sinister motivations.

It has also been REALLY obvious that they were playing up Iron Enforcer as a heel--I was totally hating him while at the same time going, he can't be THIS bad, they must be editing it to make him look worse. So I was shocked when he was eliminated; for once, they did surprise me by then coming up with a way to bring him back.

Monkey Woman indeed was amazingly impressive. Wow.

The new costumes were good, but it's not going to be nearly as much fun when Lumaria runs now. B^)

All in all, pretty cheesy, but kinda fun. A good show for switching back and forth with a baseball game.

I caught the replay last night. I was surprised to see Cell Phone Girl go since there are are promo pics out there of her in a remade costume.

It;s kind of hard to get past the over-scriptedness of this show. The scene where Iron Enforcer becomes Dark Enforcer is the most glaring example of this so far. But overall the show is fun and i'll keep watching.

Agreed. I can dig Iron Enforcer as the Dark Enforcer, but it was kind of jarring to my suspension of disbelief. It made me wonder if that was the plan for him from the beginning and if the Jokester was a legit contestant that got burned by Rotiart or a setup to put a shock into the rest of them. Still, it's a fun show.

I'm loving it and my wife and a friend of ours both got into in on Thursday when I showed them #1 and #2. After seeing #3, my only concern is that another two contestants were let loose and so at this pace, the series (or maybe just this season if it gets picked up again) will be a whopping 5 episodes long.

Any guesses on who will be kicked off next? I'm betting Lumaria and Fat Momma are on the chopping block, which is a shame because Feedback is the one I like the least.

I will say this, if they have to make a SciFi orignal movie based on any of the characters, Fat Mama is the only one I'd watch.

Well, unless they did Major Victory starring Bruce Campbell.

Major Victory is my fav to win.

He has the coolest name and is great at saying the little things that makes his character great:

"Who is this little girls mother ??? Jump into my arms."

"We'll be right there ma'am."

"How's my hair ?"

I agree. Major Victory is the man to beat.

And there's #4.

I was prepared to be all righteously indignated if Major Victory was eliminated because he removed his cape to help a little old lady. Stan Lee asked him if Superman would ever remove his cape, and answered his own query with "an unequivocal NO." I dunno, I don't read Superman, but I think if he could help a little old lady by removing his cape, he just might.

Major Victory was dressed down (ha!) by Stan Lee a couple of times for being incapable of keeping his costume on -- Stan was worried that this would be an ongoing problem for the former male stripper.

Of course, Stan himself would never create a stripper superhero, right? And if he did, he would certainly NEVER have the GALL to chastise Major Victory about his checkered past while having a portrait of said Stan-created-stripper-superhero hanging DIRECTLY BEHIND HIM, would he? WOULD HE?

I dunno, I can't decide if the irony is intentional or not.

I read Superman and he removes his cape all the time.

The show is pretty good and corny in a 60's comic kind of way.

The online fans did a good job of picking Lumaria, so I'm sad to see her go on that type of a challange. I thought the task was so stupid, the real goal was not to complete it. I've never seen Spiderman give a hug to a bad guy.

and if there is a Sci-Fi movie they should get Vin Diesel to play the Dark Enforcer.

G4 must have had decent ratings for "Ninja Warrior" (Tokyo Broadcasting System's "Sasuke" offshoot on their "Muscle Ranking" show)... as they've started another season today at 6:30p (and a possible repeat at 11p).
