new series: The Cape

Postby Anthony Ravenscroft » Sun May 30, 2010 1:38 pm

...and once again, a major network foredooms what could be a GREAT series...

It's called The Cape, sort of a "Frank Castle joins the circus" thing. Corrupt town (a la recent iterations of Gotham City), last good cop, gets set up / hung out to dry / left for dead. Rescued, said cop learns to use a spider-silk cape as a primary weapon.

Okay, so the premise looks like a trainwreck, but the promo almost convinces me it'll be worth a watch:

On the (inevitable) downside: I expect it'll get all the support of Mercy Point or Kings, or (now) Heroes. I mean, dig the title -- do none of the involved nimrods have Google access to find a 1996 series starring Corben Bernse & Adam Baldwin?

I should start a deadpool, beginning with whether The Cape or FOX's Terra Nova is murdered first.
