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

Finally got to see these...the "Pilot" was good...it did feel rushed...should have been 2 hours on that and then "Tarot" which was paced better and I thought it was good too.

Summer Glau...

I am liking this show so far.

Now, that maybe different, as Summer and the guy playing Chess are close in age that would be challenging to believe.
Summer Glau- 29
James Frain - 42

Considering that Glau looks several years younger than her age (still), I think they have sufficient wiggle room there.

The bigger hold-up is that it would be too cliched.

Just because it's based on a comic book doesn't mean we need to settle for crap. Low standards is what doomed Heroes.

Seriously wasn't Heroes an attempt to put "super" characters into a real world like the Wild Card series of novels or what was the name of the 90s comic book company? I don't see The Cape as trying to be a "real" guy with some skill or supernatural gift living in "our world' but rather a comic book world

The Cape WAS not a comic book before it was created as a TV show.

Do some of you actually think the cape is an adaptation of soemthing beloved and cherished by millions of fanboys all over the world?

It's basically rape.

Ongoing.

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

It is missing some charm...like SMALLVILLE had in the early seasons...I can see that they are trying to get that with Vince and his family...but it isn't emotional enough. I really don't like Chess/Peter Fleming...I think the whole ARK thing doesn't have enough edge. Orwell being kinda like Watchtower(Smallville) is interesting and I find her more interesting than the other characters to be honest...and Raia as played by Izabella Miko

As a psuedo comicbook/superhero series...it isn't as bad as some of the comments make it out to be...but it is far from great....and being on NBC doesn't help.
