From the producers of Jersey Shore, it's a reality series being pitched as the real Big Bang Theory. The cast look kinda like Power Rangers.

Perhaps Syfy may be realizing that their fanbase isn't necessarily responding favorably to all these indicators. So they brought out the big gun.

So why is Stan Lee endorsing this? Well, it could be that he simply endorses everything - I am old enough to remember him saying how great David Hasselhoff was going to be as Nick Fury, for example. But more likely, it's this:

The show follows seven pop culture-obsessed fans (whose passions range from comic books and collectibles to science fiction and fantasy) living together in an LA apartment complex and working together at Stan Lee's Comikaze Expo.

What's the opposite of a Fangasm? Fanvulsion, maybe?
