I'm a Man. I'm a Slut. I'm a Man...I'm a Dream Divine

I don't think "The Cape" knows exactly what it wants to be (other than a hit), nor do I think NBC knows what the hell it's doing (other than trying to create a hit) but damned if I'm not enticed by every teaser I've seen. The premise is stupid, the superhero is questionable, the music is bad, the retorts are ridiculous and spoon fed ("You're the one wearing long underwear and a cape." "It's my most annoying feature."). And still, I can't wait to check out this idiotic show. Its appeal is most definitely in the cast: Summer Glau, James Frain, Keith David, Vinnie Jones, though I don't know much about the lead, David Lyons. Maybe they can just keep Glau in all his scenes because she elevates just about anything she's in.

Here are the latest promos (In the interest of preventing ear bleeding, I recommend turning the sound way down for the first one):



"The Cape" premieres on January 9, 2011 and follows a former cop, Vince Faraday (Lyons), turned superhero after having been framed for a murder and left for dead. The Cape takes on the persona of his son's favorite comic book character, receives training from a criminal/circus ringleader and sets out to rid the city of corruption and bad guys. Yes, it makes no sense. No, you can't look away.
