Default The Cape

Did anyone else watch the premiere of The Cape on NBC? I really liked it, though they borrowed a bit too much from Batman Begins, but even that aspect didn't really ruin it. They actually managed to pull together the gritty tone of current superhero fare with the over the top nature of Batman's type of villains with a healthy dose of self-deprecating humor. If you like Batman, you should check out The Cape.

I fought it was great I liked it a lot the only thing that bothered me where the commercials

That's why I put it on my DVR so I could fastfoward.

I liked the story very much and the action. I hope it gets better as it goes and doesn't change much from the pilot.

The highlight for me was Summer Glau
She's beautiful, I hadn't seen her since The Sahra Conner Chronicles which I loved.

I DVRd it and finally got to watch it last night with the bf. We really liked it and will continue watching it.

I thought it was laughably bad, just a terrible, terrible show!

NBC, Bring back Heroes.

Heroes got too crazy. I think it went in the same direction as LOST. Once they started time travelling, the whole show became pointless.

Yep, that's why I quit watching Heroes. It just got too dumb. I am hoping The Cape will be a good show to fill some time with. Yes, it's cheesy, but it has potential and I liked it. I'll keep watching it and see where it goes.
