Action Filled & Emotion Filled
10 January 2011 | by shawnhyphenraySee all my reviews

First off, I have no idea why this show got that one terrible review...someone must just not like a good story.

The Cape is probably going to be one of the best shows starting up this season on television. It is filled with actions that was pulled off very well, along with a lot of emotion between the main character and his family.

Even though it may not to a completely original idea, there isn't really another show on television like it.

The show also has good acting, good plot, likable/unlikeable characters, and David Lyons pulls off the "superhero" look very well.

Overall, this is a show I'm going to continue watching and hope will not be cancels, although I don't see it being canceled mid-season.
