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.
It was never clearer then when Richard Schiff was on-screen. He's a proven actor, he can be dramatic or funny, and elevate those around him. It was so painful to see him on The Cape, he tried his damnedest but the script wouldn't let him, and he couldn't coax anything on the lead in there scene.

I'm all for camp, but c'mon, that's just lazy.
