Bottom Line: An occasionally uneven but always interesting super hero comedy, Captain Alpha Male is one of those shows that you wish could have been longer to give the writers more room to explore the cast of characters they had developed.
Meet Captain Alpha Male, the world’s first middle-management superhero! He’s a man’s man, a hero’s hero. And he’s about to get the promotion he’s worked his whole life for.
There are a lot of potentially entertaining characters in this series, but you get to see them so rarely that it takes a away a lot of good sources for jokes. Even Super Sugar seems underutilized, spending a good part of the season saying almost nothing other than how important it is to “build the brand.” (Storytelling 3)
I think my biggest problem with the show is that I couldn’t always tell whether any of the “super heroes” were actually super, and I think that is because they spent so little time onscreen. The first time I figured out the Captain had any powers at all is in the episode where they showed him flying. I understand that they were supposed to be super-cliches but the idea could have been executed more clearly. (Watchability 3.5)
Captain Alpha Male takes a unique look at the life of a group of Super Heroes, if you can get past its flaws what you’ll find is a quirky show with an entertaining protagonist that is worth the price of admission. (Novelty 4)
