I predict we'll want to remove our eyes.  If we actually ever watch it.

Yeah, it kinda has that feel, doesn't it?  It's NBC, though, so I'll probably give it a shot for a little bit.

Wow...a two hour pilot was a big mistake.  I was bored to tears.

But, if it had been an hour, it might have been pretty good.  I'll give it another chance next Monday.

My problem was that I assumed it was Unbreakable...because he survives impossible situations like a car blowing up in his face. Which would have been fine, but it's not the case. It's all part of the somewhat ridiculous, kid-oriented, Dick Tracy over-the-topness of the villains and the heroes.

And Summer is woefully underused, though that may just have been necessary for the pilot. Now that we're established, she might get more.  She's sort of like the crippled guy in Dark Angel, who just wheeled around and played with computers. But she also does some master of disguise stuff (from the Clark Kent school of disguise).

Summer Glau's got the kiss of death.  The Cape is out and only 10 episodes will air.

I wonder if there's a Firefly curse. Morena is getting semi-replaced by an actress who hasn't worked in 20 years, Alan Tudyk is in jail or rehab or something, Glau can't keep a series afloat. Fillion's managed to come out ahead, but it was rocky for him, as well, for awhile.

“The Cape” ...  is NBC’s lowest-rated scripted series and had its first-season order cut from 13 to 10 episodes.

Did you watch any of it? It sucked. Surprisingly so. I really, really tried to like it and be forgiving, too.
