The Cape retained over 95% of it’s viewers through both hours Sunday and Monday. This is a very good sign!


I’m completely going into this show with optimism a’burstin’.
I mean it looks like they are trying to avoid the massive errors that made Heroes suck. Embracing the camp is the first step because except for Nolan’s Batman films, no one has really been able to get a straight serious superhero film/TV series right. Might as well just embrace the silly aspects of a caped hero and go have fun with it.
