Sometimes it takes a superhuman to go through this life. I think.
I’ve stumbled on the American show, Superhuman, and it’s awesome, awe inspiring. Well, they have Mike Tyson, Christina Milani ( ??, I knew she penned JLo’s hit and have a few hits herself, but can’t seem to get the last name right, sorry) …and Kal Penn. Is the spelling correct?
Wow, Raj Badalandabad. The man! He really made the rounds. Harold and Kumar is epic. It is THE. After not pursuing medical school, it seems he was doing alright. Heard, he got recruited into White House too. And now, he’s hosting Superhuman. We don’t have slapsticks like Harold and Kumar there but he seems to carry the banters and conversation rather elegantly. He got the chops. And the brains too, I believe. Oh my Raj! So proud.
Ehnieewayyy! The show itself is phenomenal. With XXX Got Talent, or X Factor or American Idol series, you get talents but on Superhuman, you get bizarre plus plus and time it by a BIG number. I don’t know what, but a big figure! Ha!
It’s amazing but at times, there’s a certain wicked perception that challenges the contestants ( all vying for the top spot for the 50k dowry) to mindbozzle everyone aka EVERYONE. Man, this is real life and not pre planned but because we watched too many movies and action flicks, our expectations can be too far reaching. But rest assured, each episodes, up till now, is entertaining. Even Mike Tyson drops in with his on point retorts and comments, you didn’t see that coming didn’t ya? Mr Mike Tyson is in his prime, an uber example of an exceptional superhuman. Okay, I didn’t jump into that wagon because I was too young or not born yet but hearing stories about him is enough to know that he is a legend, still.
There’s the real life Clark Kent professor with super sight that can fathom discrepancies between adjacent almost similar row of 3000 plus words. Then there’s the contestants with muscle memoru prowesses, that never failed to amaze. Remember the ‘Framing Challenge’? Then, what about the gymnast turn yoga instructor who choreographed her way, sailing on top of the pillars? Both, blindfolded. Such feats.
It’s awe inspiring, indeed.
What are your superpowers?
I used to dream to have one. We watched the cartoons, read the books, gaped at the movie reels ..and wished we had some too. Both the good looks ( not unlike Tom Welling’s) and the super human abilities, in one go. But realities came crashing on us, and we had to start living. We forgot to the dream. That some of the abilities can be worked on. Albeit needing a very, very,very long time.
Check out Running Man too, they have a special series dedicated to superhuman abilities, the Superheroes special! It’s a blast.
