More Guilty Pleasures

In keeping with my summer of guilty pleasures, I'm totally hooked on Who Wants to Be a Superhero on the Sci Fi Channel. Kind of a comic book version of Survivor Meets The Apprentice. Each contestant creates a superhero, dons a costume of their own making, and competes in various challenges. Stan Lee judges them not only on their physical capabilities but their integrity, compassion and honesty, and kicks one to the curb each week (with an unceremonious disrobing of their superhero outfits). The winner is immortalized in a comic book and star in their own Sci-Fi movie. It's silly. Silly silly silly. But the contestants are engaging, and despite some obvious scripting, the show is fast paced and very entertaining.

My money is on Major Victory! Be a winner not a weiner!!!
