The writing was pretty much on the wall for NBC’s “The Cape.” When the network refuses to air the season finale anywhere but the internet… that’s a pretty good indicator. Personally, I knew it wasn’t going to last when I saw the chess piece contact lenses that the bad guy “Chess” was sporting. That was just ridiculous.
Newer news is that ABC’s “No Ordinary Family” is meeting a pretty ordinary fate for genre shows on network TV. It is canceled. This is another one that you could tell from the very beginning. I remember back at Comic Con last year. There was so much promotion for the show that you could just tell it wasn’t going to be good. It’s kind of like when some ass hat in a sports car cuts you off on the road and then speeds off. You know he’s just overcompensating for something else in his life that isn’t up to par.
Anyways, it looks like the cast already saw the writing on the wall. Michael Chiklis and Julie Benz already have new pilots set for the fall season.
It’s kind of a bummer to see so many super hero shows bite the dust… but they did kind of suck. I wonder if “Wonder Woman” will be any better?
