My first impression coming out of this initial pilot is this is what Heroes should have been like
' 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.
