    by ISleptWithKathyBatesAndAllThatIGotWasThisStupidTalkbackName

    Or it could be the fact that I'm about to lose "24" and am desperately clinging onto hope here that something involving conspiracies and shoot-outs will come along to replace it in my viewing schedule.<p>Probably that.

    by Zappatilla

    from these awful DOA shows! You know you want "The Cape" & "The Event" to be good, but you can almost start taking bets right now which shows will be canceled in 5 minutes. At least "The Office", "Community", "Parks & Rec", and "30 Rock" are still around. All these others just seem a rip off of another failed show.

    Undercovers lost me at "sexspionage".

    by CCon99

    Looks like NBC's answer to coming back from 4th place is to follow the ABC template of making every new show a Dramedy. I laughed my ass off with them trying to cram the word "sexspionage" down our throats. I'm on a NBC focus panel and that's the kind of lame questions they ask us all the time: "What do you think of the term "sexspionage"?" Of course none of the answers you can pick are "It's fucking ridiculous".

    by Peter Franks

    How can such a beautiful and talented woman consistently end up in such unwatchable tripe? Seriously, The Cape could not possibly look any fucking stupider. Can a show actually be canceled mid-way through the first episode? Because it looks like that's where we're definitely headed with that shit.

  • May 17, 2010, 3:27 p.m. CST

    Uh, same guy in Perfect Couples and Love Bites?

    by Drath

    And wasn't he in a WB show with a young Milo Ventimiglia, Allison Mack, and Chris Evans? He's overdue for a break, but two shows? I guess he ought to be covered, unless both flop.

  • May 17, 2010, 3:29 p.m. CST

    wow... undercovers look good

    by yourSTEPDADDY

    ...i mean, i expected it to, but man, it looks really good... but it will be canceled due to the "darkness" of the skin pigmentation... such a shame...<P>and a bigger shame... ya can never show a black (nice and/or phat) ass on TV or music videos, but ya can always show a no ass in a g-string...whats up wit that?

    Season finale tonight! Sounds like it is going to be amazing.<p><p>That's how interested I am in ANY of these NBC shows. So disinterested that it inspired my mind to wander to a show that's not even on NBC. Sheesh!<p><p>Of course, House is amazing and this looks to be a very good introspective episode where the most moving part is going to be any insight we get into House despite some pretty incredible ongoings around him.<p><p>So yeah, that's how excited I am about NBC's schedule.<p><p>-Cheers

    you do realize that she picks which shows she will audition/try out for, right? It's not as if she's just thrown into a bunch of shitty shows and has absolutely no say about it. she's made bad choices. she helps put herself in these "unwatchable tripe" shows.

    Oh Lord . . . The Cape

    by Dave I

    So I finally bothered to watch that video for The Cape. Wow. They went over-the-top cheesy. Creating a martial art that involved using a spider silk cape as a weapon? And a secret identity protected by a hood that might, I don't know, fly off when he's doing vigilante stuff like running or staring into a stiff breeze. The obviously scripted humor is a bit much as well.<p><p>Even if this does end up being better than I fear, the premise just seems too far-fetched even for a Batman/Kick-Ass inspired comic-type television show. That spider silk cape and the associated cape-driven martial art will just be too much to suspend disbelief. And this from a guy who bought into the Batman, Spider-Man, and Iron Man movies, not to mention years of comics and cartoons, including The Tick and Venture Bros. I guess I at least expect some adherence to the basic laws of physics (or tongue-in-cheek humor, which if done right can be awesome), and, you know, ACTUAL martial arts. At least if you're going with the realism-based plot design. Heck, he's a cop, why not have him use a gun since he's probably had some training/experience with it, rather than some (even if it DID exist) antiquated and limited martial art based on having a very impractical article of clothing.<p><p>I'm just a little impressed that they could make a show designed with so many problems from the get-go. That in and of itself takes some effort. So to that . . . Bravo!<p><p>-Cheers

  • May 17, 2010, 4:28 p.m. CST

    Also regarding the Cape's mentor.

    by cookylamoo

    It's traditional when a black character provides support for the hero that he should either be in a wheelchair or be blind, or missing his hands. This explains why the black dude isn't out kicking butt himself but instead needs to train some candy ass white guy.

  • May 17, 2010, 4:34 p.m. CST

    by Greggers

    I would have loved to have seen his show (especially this single camera one and not the other live-audience one from last year), but alas, this just means that he'll still be able to do his podcast every day, plus more. <p> As for THE CAPE, it looks like every single other tv superhero show, be it THE FLASH, MANTIS, or hell, even KNIGHT RIDER: Hero gets a family of assistants as his backup team, including a tech girl, and fatherly mentor. Too dumb for regular people, to stale for nerds. Seriously, this one looks dead-on-arrival, <p> Wasn't there a pilot for STARMAN once upon a time?

    by supertoyslast

    Which goes to show how desperate NBC are. It seems that 'quality' and 'intelligence' have been forgotten about. And what the hell is it with half of the clips giving away the ending of the show? The outcomes may be predictable, but that doesn't mean that they should be revealed in the trailer.<p>Apart from Community, I think I give up on network TV. Just wake me up when Futurama's back.

    by Drath

    What the fuck is wrong with people? Harry's Law looks like it has appeal, certainly 5000 steps above Raising the Bar. And I could get into The Chase and The Event--the later of which looks like it could be as good as I wanted Flashfoward to be--but could be as bad as Flashforward actually was. Undercovers looks blah to me, but it did have a little humor. Love Bites looked like the return of Sex in the City, so ugh. The rest, pass. The number of comments on the unworthy The Cape, even just to rip on it, shows how limited the demographic on this site can be.

  • May 17, 2010, 6:20 p.m. CST

    by oisin5199

    The lead still needs work hiding his accent, but otherwise it's got Keith David and Summer Glau and basic superhero tropes - don't understand what's so far-fetched in a superhero story. I'm a fan of this stuff, so I'll check it out. It's gotta be better than the shitstain that was Heroes.

    by gotilk

    But it doesn't take "pride" to fix the school system. It takes money. And there's a reason it's considered one of the deadly sins. I hope the show spurs more community interest, but communities will remain dead and dying until rents are under control and slumlords living in mansions are held accountable for what they do to communities.

    The Cape = K-20: Legend of the Mask

    by slimballs

    The Cape looks like a complete rip-off of the Japanese film K-20: the Legend of the Mask.

    The Cape Looks Like It Has Potential

    by MakNeil

    It looks like, at the very least, that it could be a good ride. <P> As long as it spends less time being maudlin, and more time kicking ass, that is.<P> Sure, it doesn't look like the most original show on television, then again we are talking about network television, which is not exactly known for originality and bold concepts.<P> I don't expect The Wire with costumes, though as long as I am entertained for an hour or so and the characters (The Cape in particular) don't do too many stupid things too often, then I am on board,<P>

    The Cape vs. The Gun

    I know who I'd bet on in a fight.

    The Cape looks like a poor man's Unbreakable sequel

    by BumLove

    Seriously, they stole the look of Bruce Willis's superhero character, and his family dynamic, and then added in a cheezy cape and Keith David. Yeeeesh.

    Jesus- the Rockford Files pilot must have been absolute shit

    by Carl's hat

    for this crap to get the go ahead. I'd rather watch season 5 of Prison Break than see Sucre sell out and now be a freakin' US marshall. The lead of this show needs to be a male- sexist? Maybe. True- definitely.

    Forget the guy in the cape.

    by cookylamoo

    And do a show about the foulmouthed crime fighting Dwarf.

    The Event has potential...

    by Titus05

    good cast...nice premise...plus those smart guys at NBC put it in the same timeslot as the soon to depart 24...I smell success as long as they know what the Event is and are not making it up as they go along

    I've come to a conclusion...

    by BizarroJerry

    For the most part, I no longer like television. Every one of these shows is trying to be "cool". Nearly all at least seem to take place in New York, or a similar city. And watching shows about model-hot women having trouble finding a man has become tiresome. And it's supposed to be some big joke that that woman has no push up bra? Is it really all that necessary when you're 25?

    One more thing

    by BizarroJerry

    The romantic comedy has progressed to the point where it may in fact be the downfall of western civilization.

    Outsourced just points what's so fucked up..

    by Stalkeye

    ..about Corporate America.major Companies that rake in Millions of dollars like Dell,Microsoft and even AICN's beloved Amazon.com have ousted American CSR jobs to WIPRO whose representatives' english is not as credible/fluent as it should be.<p>it's not all about company costs through attrition, but fucking greed.

    K-20 was actually good

    by Stalkeye

    Unfortunately the protagonist was not the masked K-20, no was he a superhero/vigilante but a scheming villian instead. I had such high hopes for this movie when I first saw the incredible animated inro.The Cape is aimed specifically for the comic and Heroes fans.(i.e. geeks) however, it may go the way of the bionic woman remake or FOX's Mantis.

    I'll check this Cape series out, mostly B/c..

    by Stalkeye

    ..I'm a fan of Keith David's work from JC's The Thing to his voiceovers in Spawn and COD:MW2.But don't ask me to watch The Sensei after the first 3 minutes, I had to remove that crap from my instant Netflix queue.Funny premise (pun intended) when david's character, a minister is harrased by Skinheads only to have his ass saved by some Martial arts guy,who before thanking him..(SPOILER)....Man was that fucking hilarious.

    The inclusion of Summer Glau...

    by David_Denmans_Beard

    does not make a good show. The Cape will be a mid-season replacement that will end up needing a mid-season replacement replacement.

    Paul Reiser just stay gone please

    by ennio

    The trailer is a bad Curb Your Enthusiasm, reality-meets-fiction clone, not to mention completely off-putting when the premise of the show is, "I have everything I could ever want. What now?" Yeah, that's something we can all relate to, eh?

    Guess I won't be watching anything on NBC again

    by siobhan

    It seems like they're determined to alienate their young viewers, and are completely content with producing shit. After screwing Conan and canceling Law and Order and Heroes, I'm done with NBC. The Cape looks atrociously bad, and Outsourced looks incredibly racist, and there were no laughs in the 5 minute clip (maybe there were, but I shut it off after the dog humping leg toy).
