Monster Man goes behind the scenes of one of Hollywood's most respected monster prop building workshops. For more than thirty years, when studios want a bizarre creature or out-of-this world alien, they've turned to Cleve Hall and his very unique family business. Only the horrifying monsters they build match the craziness of this extremely talented family. Monster Man follows Cleve Hall, his daughters Constance and Elora Hall, his ex-wife Sonja Maddox-Hall, best friends Roy Knyrim and Johnny Saiko, as well as office manager Cindy Miller, as they bring the movie world's most imaginative creatures to life. Cleve Hall has been in the prop design game since he was a teenager. Monsters are his specialty, which fits the personality of a man who dresses in all black and drives a hearse. Hall has created masterpieces for countless big budget flicks for Paramount Pictures, DreamWorks, Warner Bros and Disney, including favorites How to Train Your Dragon, Syfy original movie Sharktopus, Ed Wood and Pee Wee's Big Adventure. Hall has also lent his talent to numerous television programs including Yo Gabba Gabba, for which he received an Emmy nomination. Additionally, he has worked with rock bands including KISS, creating Gene Simmons' Demon Armor, as well as Insane Clown Posse, Alice Cooper, Tenacious D and DEVO.

If building this complex appliance for an A-lister isn't enough, creature feature makers at The Asylum ask Cleve to build a terrorizing two-headed shark - and how does Cleve find inspiration for a two-headed shark? Well, by literally swimming in shark-infested waters.||43:04||$2.99||View in iTunes|

I don't know why this show wasn't renewed by SyFy, but then again this is the network that cancelled "Farscape". "Monster Man" was a fun, amusing and interesting companion series to "Face Off". I actually think I enjoyed "Monster Man" a bit more. I certainly laughed more.
Where is episode 2? Im a little disappointed that I paid for the entire season, the episode came out on tv last wednesday, and iTunes has still not added it. Are the rest of the episodes going to be like this? I hope not or I may regret paying for this and will be upset on how iTunes handles television updates.
I love this show!!! wonderful!! :D
