Re: THE CAPE | “Pilot” & “Tarot” (Jan. 9) *Spoilers!*

My first impression coming out of this initial pilot is this is what Heroes should have been like
Heroes' first season was vastly better. The Cape is stilted and unimaginative, with nothing to induce me to keep watching.

I think they're trying for a light comic touch - there were some comic lines in there, certainly - but they crashed like the proverbial lead balloon. Either the writers can't do comedy or the plank of wood they hired as the lead can't deliver comedy. I appreciate comedy, but only when it doesn't make me cringe and feel embarrassed for everyone involved. It's almost more cringe-worthy than the dumbass cape.
