Started out mediocre, but seems to be heading in the right direction.
12 March 2011 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

A show about a well trained, but ordinary man who get's an extraordinary cape, which turns him into a superhero. So, that said, I want to add that while watching this, you might want to take it easy with your suspension of disbelief. Expect a super hero series and don't expect it to obey all the laws of physics all the time. If you can do that, this show is definitely fun to watch.

The first few episodes might not be all to convincing though. They were good enough for me to keep following the series, but they weren't great. The show didn't seem to have any direction at first, the overall plot was clear, but not much was done with it. It seemed to struggle between being a modular show, or being a true serial and the story turned in to some awkward mix. I figured it wouldn't last beyond the first season and considering all the things I read about it, I wasn't the only one with that opinion.

Perhaps all that early negative feedback was what this show needed, because the last few episodes have clearly gotten better. It still doesn't seem to be sure what it is, but that's alright now because they've seemed to make it work. I'm actually looking forward to new episodes now.

8/10 + 1 because I have faith this will keep getting better.
