The Hotness receives a tip-off about a drugs deal in Putney, but as his car failed its MoT he is forced to go on the bus where he runs into some trouble trying to chat up a girl. She-Force and Electroclash attend a fan club meeting dedicated to Lady Trouble, the duo they used to operate as. Timebomb meets a hero called Fusebox who raises the question – why are superheroes so interested in casual, meaningless sex?
The truth comes out – rather more of it than anticipated – at the fan club meeting.
I’m starting to feel that the Hotness social incompetence scenes are already getting old, and it’s only episode two.
Originality: Three out of six.
Effects: Almost not there, and unfortunately The Hotness’ use of his powers to heat a ready meal doesn’t look very good at all, and the bus is a bit obviously greenscreened to make it look like it’s driving along. Three out of six.
Story: There’s some thought in the backstories coming out here, although everything’s fairly predictable. The story isn’t so much about what happens as what it shows us about the characters and the situation they’re in. Four out of six.
Emotional Response: Laughter. A bit of sympathetic embarrassment. Four out of six.
Acting: The superhero fan club were superb. Five out of six.
Production: Five out of six
Overall: Four out of six.
No Heroics episode two receives twenty-eight out of forty-two.
