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.
