Comedy, Fantasy, Animated
From the minds of "Saturday Night Live" veterans Seth Meyers and Michael Shoemaker comes "The Awesomes," an animated series about a team of superheroes. Well, not real superheroes, more like the second string. When Mr. Awesome, leader of the greatest superhero team in history, decides to retire, and most of the major players go with him, Awesome's son, Prock (short for Professor Doctor Awesome) steps up to field his own team of crime fighters. Prock's team includes Frantic, who is the third-fastest man on Earth; Gadget Gal, who's really an 85-year-old woman who looks 25, courtesy of a rejuvenation ray; and the Impresario, who uses a jewel in his turban to bring to life things he imagines (though his imagination is somewhat limited). Prock and his crew take on evil while trying to restore the team's name to its former glory.
