It would seem as though NBC has not yet learned their lesson from the failure that Heroes turned out to be. Because once again they are attempting a show about a superhero. Except this time the hero has no special powers and he isn’t trying to find his place in this world. No this time they went with the tried and true storyline: Good guy is framed by the so called good guys, while his family watches on the news no less, to look like a bad guy. Got that? Good. After an explosion leaves everyone thinking the guy is dead he is rescued by a very unusual circus act, which that in of itself is saying a lot, who then proceed to teach him how to be a superhero. I know this all sounds “Been there, done that” but it will be interesting to see if they have indeed learned their lessons.
The Cape stars David Lyons, Summer Glau, James Frain, Keith David, Dorian Missick, and Vinnie Jones and premieres on January 9, 2011 at 9pm before moving to Mondays at 9pm on January 17, 2011.
