The Dumbest Superhero Television Show in the History of Dumb Superhero Television Shows

Starting on January 9th, NBC will unveil their new series "The Cape," which has to be the balls-out dumbest superhero television show in the history of superhero television shows. The dude's super-weapon is a goddamn cape, people, which he can use to, like, snag other people's knives. It's also made out of pure spider silk, which for whatever reason, makes it more indestructible than Kevlar. Spider silk?

Below is the promotional trailer, which is shank-tacularly hilarious. It's about the last good cop on the force who gets framed for murder after someone staples a hood to his head. Yes. Staples. It also featured Summer Glau, Vinnie Jones, and a small person, who knocks out Vinnie Jones and delivers the delicious line, "Say hello to Dorothy, bitch."

But here's the thing: I'm absolutely riveted by "The Cape." There's something of an interesting origins story here, a nice dose of comedy (which should work well following "Chuck") and, well, Summer Glau. It looks positively stupid, but I kind of can't wait to see it.

Am I alone in this?
