One of the shows I really loved watching this summer was the reality series The Hero hosted by Dwayne The Rock Johnson. Not only did it have quite a different dynamic and format than other reality shows, and it really stood up for it's exploration of what defines and makes a hero. And did I mention Dwayne The Rock Johnson is the host? :)
I watched a lot of the show online, and recently looked it up for a friend that missed a few episode at which point I discovered that the entire 8 episodes are online to watch over at Slice.ca. As with all reality shows, you certainly don't want to accidentally get spoiled by the outcome, so I've made one of my handy-dandy spoiler-free episode lists for you to catch up, or watch the whole thing.
If you are new to the series, here is a little more about The Hero:
"Making its daring debut on Thursday, June 6 at 9pm ET/PT is the epic new series, The Hero, headlined by Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson. Nine everyday contestants will be put through a series of challenges testing their brains, their brawn and even their morality as they try to prove that they deserve the title of “The Hero” and the life-changing prize that goes with it. With a chance to win up to a million dollars, competitors are pushed to the limits to see what they are willing – and able – to overcome, undergo, or even sacrifice for the sake of their fellow contestants. Johnson will serve as The Hero’s mentor and motivator, encouraging the contestants to reach far beyond their personal limits."
