The Cape after 2 shows
11 January 2011 | by BadabingNLSee all my reviews

The Cape has been either a very good comicbook or an even greater recast of the book(if there is any :) Well yes i think this has the potential to attract the best actors (if it hasn't already: Summer Glau ftw) and directors. But what i like about this TV show is that its just very easy to watch and with the right actors in place. I can't say it's absolutely a TO_WATCH show, cause i've only seen 2 shows. But i will say again it's has the potential to be very good. So the 5.9 is not correct in my opion. It will go to 6-7 at the very best. So i hope this show won't get cancelled like all the others good shows.

Until then i'm praying this show won't. So for all u action/thriller fans, The Cape is an definitely TO WATCH show!
