    I like that show does not take itself to seriously and can have have some good action fun. Kinda like Human Target in that regard.

    With only a 13 episode commitment, I'm glad that they are not dragging certain things out.

    Youch, bad ratings even by NBC standards.

    I ff'ed a lot of this episode but caught enough to see that Chess is a much more interesting character than the Cape. They really should have made this show about Orwell and her daddy issues vs Chess (and wow, how obvious was her dialogue at the end, oh gee Cape, do you think my dad err I mean YOU might ever stop loving me, err I mean YOUR KID). :rommie:

    I'll catch whatever eps deal with Chess & Orwell in what time remains on the clock for this show. They better hurry up with whatever plotlines they want to explore.

    I liked this episode well enough. The scenes involving the carnival were some of the best of the episode. I liked how Max wouldn't help Cape on the train and their conversation at the end. That was well done and it does remind Cape and the audience that Max and his band are crooks. Though I got a feeling that Max will eventually soften in the end, if the show goes on long enough.

    I liked Scales, Vinnie Jones has a kind of brutish swagger. Though I wish he had better dialogue. I did like the flashbacks to his past. It added a little depth to him. I also liked the Fleming/Cape scene when they were trying to save the train.

    This show will never be Emmy-material, but its an enjoyable enough B-show ride.

    For the one season this show will have to play with it will at least be fun. How great to have a hero who actually likes being one? Many other shows could get the hint. Wonder Woman and the Cape would be a good one, two punch during the week.

    If The Cape drops below 5 Million...then I can see canceling it...but seriously it isn't going to pull 8-10 million viewers...it isn't going to pull 7 million...but 5-6 is reasonable...if it falls below 5...I will understand...but above 5-6...no.

    Cancelling a show usually means pulling it before all of the episodes produced have aired. I don't think "The Cape" will be cancelled. I doubt it will get a second season pick-up though.

    If they order Wonder Woman to series, I don't see them keeping two super-hero shows on the schedule.

    Scales is really dumb though, i thought from the first episode he knew Flemming was Chess since they were together (interigating Max) after the Vince Faraday chase and Explosion. Plus Chess's british voice sounds just like Flemming.
