There's no place I can be since I found Serenity.


It could have been a lot worse. I think Summer did as well as she could considering some of the lame dialog she was given, and she certainly looked great. Keith David also lent a bit of class to the production, he's always been a solid performer.

Like woman, I am a mystery.


Ok, the first episode was real good. But the second just nosedived into a huge pool of melodrama and padding and sheer idiocy. Honestly, the only way to watch this show and remain sane is to watch it like it's Trapped In The Closet and just laugh at the narminess and overly dramatic situations. I enjoyed it and will continue watching (for now) but probably not for the reasons the creators want me to.

Socialist and unashamed about it.

Sadly yeah I didn't think it was very good. Summer was pretty good in it but all and all the show was kinda lame. I will watch it a few more times in hopes it gets better.

Me personally? I liked what I saw but I can acknowledge that the presented product wasn't anywhere near perfecet. I think the pilot should have been the full 2 hours, instead of having it and episode 2 back-to-back...felt too rushed. There were kernels of some interesting nuggets raised, especially the hints Vince had done a Donnie Brasco at least once in his time as a cop or when he was in the military and he wasn't a very nice man while undercover. Plus the CGI for the cape's ability to nab things seemed a bit too obvious to the discerning eye.

Overall, I'd give the first 2 episodes a 7/10 score

Anyone else notice the Shindig music in the restaurant scene?

It was a comic book, mainly from the 80s. Once I started watching it from that standpoint, it got a lot better.

Summer in tight skirts and leather didn't hurt either.

Summer didn't do a bad job in it, it's just her character I wasn't interested in. The show was what I expected it to be from the promo: Cheesy CG, Cheesy Dialogue and predictable circumstances. I'll give it a 6.5/10. I would of liked it more if they didn't have that kid in the show.

I can't stand child actors.

Apparently I'm in the minority, I loved it. Yea it was kind of cheesy and over the top, but it's a superhero show, that's what it's supposed to be. I can't wait for more. And yea, Summer was awesome.

Summer looked like a million bucks, but I found the writing and story line to be below average.

Anyone else catch the 'Borat' reference, as Cape foiled that robbery attempt in the hardware store ?

Nice try, I suppose, but I can't ever get that hideous vision of the nekked wrestling scene, from the BORAT movie.

Only watched it for Summer. The show was decent.

Hopefully we get some barefoot scenes from Summer in the coming episodes.
