So I watched "Mega Snake," the Sci Fi Channel creature feature they gave Matthew Atherton a part in for winning last year's "Who Wants to Be a Superhero?"
And lemmee tell ya, it full on rocked. Picture "The Dukes of Hazzard," with the Duke boys fighting a giant snake. And, oh yeah, the whole thing being filmed in Romania so all the extras have ridiculous southern accents dubbed in. Can you even imagine how great that would be?
Sadly, Feedback (Atherton's superhero alter ego) does not play a large role in the snake fighting. Nor does earn immortality by getting eaten by the snake (although pretty much everyone else does). But his appearance does throw yet another element of super cheesy goodness into the proceedings, so it's all to the good.
It airs Aug. 25. Cancel your weekend plans, stat!
(that picture is not, in fact, of a Mega Snake, but rather an ordinary bull snake. My apologies)
