A comedy set in the universe of DC Comics.


Emily Locke has just landed her dream job as Director of Research and Development for Wayne Security in Charm City, home to superheroes and villains - and citizens who are fed up of dealing with the collateral damage of their constant fighting.

Emily has big ideas and is brimming with confidence, but she soon realizes that her lofty aspirations far exceed those of her new boss and co-workers. But never one to back down from a challenge, Emily won't stop from leading her team to fulfill their true potential and help them realize that to be a hero you don't always need superpowers.

Ron Funches was my reason for tuning in but not even him could get me to watch past the first episode. Dud!

Saw one episode. Crash and burn. No survivors.

Surprised it lasted beyond the first episode....what a waste of airtime and my time.

They had three episodes to show. Why waste their money, and not show them?. This also happened with 'time after time'. They can burn them off on a saturday night. Sure it's cancelled. But it's still money they spent. They should show the last three eps sometime.

I like the unique concept of this show: regular people living among superheroes and villains. It also has one of the best opening title sequences where we see the main characters witness battles between good and evil from afar comic book style. Having Ron Funches of "Undateable" fame on the cast certainly helps.

though i really enjoy this show, i wouldn't be the least bit surprised if it gets canceled. it's a rather dry comedy..which tend to not fare well.

It is awful... the original premise would have been much better. An insurance adjuster. The first three episodes were ok, but the fourth was unwatchable... so disappointing, it had such a great cast...

I think it's one of the more cleverly written comedy shows just coming out (it looks even better if you compare it to a drab disaster like Superior Donuts). One troubling thing is that the superhero-related premise - which was a fun reverse - seems to play less and less of a part. In fact, aside from an occasional oblique reference, it seems to have pretty much disappeared. On the other hand, it's very nicely acted by the entire cast - I hope it sticks.

Watched 3 episodes. Not bad, not good, but just enough to keep me entertained for 22-24 minutes. Interesting, but interaction with the DC universe is going to be sparse at best (when CW pretty much owns the DC Television Multiverse). NBC needed something to associate itself since cancelling Constantine
I would be extremely surprised if it makes it to a 2nd season, let along completing this season.

I don't think the show is horrible. Not to say that it's great either. It's ok. I'll keep watching for now.
