The Cape

New show expected to air midseason 2010-2011

Description

The series, set in the fictional metropolis of Palm City, follows a innocent cop who has been framed for a crime he did not commit and then left for dead after he is caught. He is eventually saved by a circus ringleader who prepares him with special abilities to defend himself against his foes. Separated from his wife and son, he tries to clear his name while protecting them from being killed if he was ever reported alive. He takes the law into his own hands by taking the guise of his son's favorite comic book hero, The Cape, after he is given a special suit that has unique capabilities. Vowing to get rid of the corruption that has taken over both the city and the police force, he goes after the person responsible for setting him up and causing his "demise."

I feel bad that this show didn't do better. It had potential.

very true. But the plotlines are transparent. Too many little clues droped here and there.

I liked the show, I will miss it. Summer Glau is such a great actress, I wish a show would pick her up that lasts more than a year or two.

Yes, Summer is great. I still miss Terminator: Sarah Conner Chronicles and Firefly. This show had potential, but in my opinion didn't quite execute.

Probably from bad writing, and high expectations.

I just watched episode 10. It was a good episode, but it did not feel like an ending.

Maybe another channel will pick it up. And for sure I agree with zandarblade it did not feel like an ending -- so maybe another channnel will pick it up.

I think that if cbs picked it up they could probably do a better job than nbc did.

I finally watched the Cape "finale." It was alright... This show could be so much more, but as it was, I think the network probably made the right decision.
