Rather stupid comedy from the BBC
24 January 2005 | by chris_gaskin123See all my reviews

As I write this review (Jan 2005), My Hero has just started a new series and is usually shown on Friday evenings, when all silly comedies are shown on BBC1.

It is about a rather intelligent baby that can, amongst other things, fly and, worse of all, talk. This is done by "putting" an older person's mouth over the baby's, which looks totally stupid and makes me go funny when you see its teeth when it talks.

The BBC has done some good comedies over the years but this has to be one of the worst and silliest. Come on BBC, you can do much better than this. Everybody should be ashamed.
