Monster Man on Sy fy?
Anyone seen this show? Looks like its a "LA Ink style" show about a creature design shop who do practical effects for movies. Their drawing/design skills are absolutely appalling and it looks like the participants were found at the malls wannabe-but-missed-the-mark goth store..
But is the show any good?

I've caught bits and pieces, nothing that's ever made me have to see a full ep. It's chock full of the standard "workplace reality" tropes: "colorful" cast, exaggerated conflict, dramatic reaction shots, manufactured "can they pull it off?" situations, cliffhanger commercial breaks. Which is a shame, because a behind-the-scenes show at a prop shop, even this prop shop, could be interesting.
I really liked both seasons of Face-Off, though.

You're right Tristan, all of the formulas are the same. It's so disappointing when you really are interested in what they do. It was the same for the show Jordu Schell was in the name escapes me.
I have to stop watching when they use the formulaic drama things.

You have to figure that if ANY of the drama is real, it will only be in the first season, too. Once they run out of stuff to argue about, the producers seed them storylines and the "bad acting" comes out pretty bad.
I like the competition shows like Face-off quite a bit, but these shows are always the same.

I watched a couple episodes on Sunday to kill time and found it interesting. I enjoyed watching the technical how-to parts of the show: molds, foam, cutting things up, etc. I wasn't impressed by the designs.

Mike Manley had a fun character called "Monster Man" under his "Action Planet Comics" imprint. I was hoping this was maybe an animated version.
