When “Heroes” crashed and burned, NBC made a bold move and launched another generic-seeming superhero show in its wake. Like NBC’s other recent bold move of putting Jay Leno on every night in prime-time instead of scripted shows people aren’t nearly as annoyed by, this idea was doomed to fail. Now that NBC has cut its episode order for “The Cape” from 13 to 10, it looks like this superhero isn’t powerful enough to stave off evil Dr. Neville┬áCancellarius.

Even star David Lyons (“ER”), a “Chuck” lead-in and borrowing a character surname from “Lost” didn’t help this show’s low ratings. As they say, “if you can’t spin the last name Faraday into TV ratings gold, you’re in deep trouble.” Maybe “The Cape” should pull a hail mary sweeps stunt and do a live episode where the lead character gets married and has to battle several mediocre guest stars. The production team will have to work around Greg Kinnear‘s schedule, of course. (Hollywood Reporter)

It looks fun in a goofy kinda way. Like Darkman without the crazy parts or compound fractures.

NBC has been running this new promo for their mid-season series “The Cape” in anticipation of its January 9th premiere. It looks fun in a goofy kinda way. Or at least it wears its goofiness on its sleeve. It’s like Darkman without the crazy parts or compound fractures. The show focuses on a disgraced cop who, believed to be dead, goes underground after being framed for the Mayor’s murder. There he joins the circus and is trained by Keith David’s impression of Morpheus to fight”True Blood‘s” crazy-ass vampire Franklin . He also learns how to wield a cape made of silk strong enough to beat up Vinnie Jones. That’s right. He has a kung-fu cape. Go ahead and roll your eyes, but it’s still not as outlandish as “Heroes.” I’ll watch it. On Hulu. When drunk.
