The Cape Promo: Will You Tune In?

by at . Comments

When NBC announced its new mid-season lineup this week, a lot of attention was focused on the new Thursday night comedy block that would send 30 Rock to 10 p.m.

However, the network will also premiere a couple new shows in January, one of which is The Cape.

Starring David Lyons in the main role, this high concept drama centers around a cop that is framed for murder and must abandon his family. But he finds a way to reconnect with them and fight crime simultaneously: by taking on the persona of a superhero known as The Cape.

Watch the first official preview now and decide: Worth a shot?

The Cape Review: A Complete Dud

That's it. Our critic has had it with The Cape! Read why in this review.


There is 2 reasons why it will be great. First is Summer Glau and second is that it looks amazing.


The Cape looks amazing.. It's like batman with a bit of zorro thrown in.. It's nerdy awesome


The trailer looks breathtaking! I am excited for January!


I think NBC wants to see how many numbers The Cape pulls versus what The Event is doing now. From what I’ve heard, The Cape is
more easily digestible (and better, if that’s hard) than The Event. Hopefully NBC knows what they’re doing.


I actually think this looks great!!! I'm really excited to watch it!


Looking better then I expected. Looking forward to it.


This looks like it could turn into something. I've been waiting to hear a date when it would actually appear. Hey, at least THIS
hero wears a COSTUME.


I say sure why not i am open minded for new TV
