This Is What’s Taking Heroes’ Place

Behold the preview for NBC’s new superhero show The Cape:

Um, am I totally jaded by three godawful seasons of Heroes, or does that look not bad? I mean, it’s not Masterpiece Theatre or anything, but you’ve a basic Batman story, some faux superpowers thanks to the “spider-silk” cape and some wacky circus dudes (they totally ripped that off Heroes!), a bit of humor, but it also takes itself more seriously than Heroes did at any point after season 1. Also: Summer Glau. I’m kind of looking forward to it. I think. Again, I can’t tell for sure.. Heroes has messed me up so bad, I don’t even trust myself any more. Thanks to Jeffrey G. for the tip.
