What I liked best about the show was that it didn't ever take itself too seriously. It was far more entertaining than plenty of recent shows, including The Event, V, Flashforward
-- heck, even Caprica
. The Cape
isn't exactly a good show, though, so unless it finds its footing rather quickly, it'll go the same route as the rebooted Knight Rider
. But there was enough pulp in the first two hours to warrant following it for a while and seeing how it does.
