The first thing that hit me about this show was literally the first thing I read. “From the producer of JERSEY SHORE” This does not bode well. I picture J-Wow cosplaying one of the Doctors or The Situation as a Stormtrooper, complete with abs. Actually, in a sadistic way, that might be fun to watch.

FANGASM Cast Photo Syfy ChannelFANGASM is a six-part documentary that according to the website “celebrates” fanboys and fangirls. That will be left to debate. We are still waiting to see how they treat cosplayers in HEROES OF COSPLAY, which airs tonight at 9:30 central on the Syfy channel.

The show takes seven geeks and pit them against each other for a chance to work with Stan Lee. They will be housed at an LA apartment and work together at Comikaze Expo which is Stan Lee’s baby. And as per shows of this type, you will have some big personalities and egos butting heads. As I read about the cast, their bios read more like for a dating service than most. Not really sure what I expect out of this, but I’m not optimistic.

FANGASM premieres September 24, 2013 at 10/9c.

HEROES OF COSPLAY Reveals the World of Competitive Cosplay


  1. I'm not optimistic about anything coming out of SyFy (siffy) and stopped giving them a chance a long time ago. Even Defiance (which I was slightly optimistic about) was disappointing in the end.

  2. I have my moments also. I watched the first episode of Heroes of Cosplay and wasn't really impressed. It seemed that some of the situations were contrived to make for a more dramatic offering. For instance, I find it hard to believe that cosplayers and costumers wait until two weeks before a show to start making their costumes. Will watch second episode to see if it continues in that vein, but not optimistic. Thanks for commenting.


Please keep your comments cordial. If you can't debate without putting someone down or using foul language, then I will delete a post.
