Preview: <i>The Cape</i> May Not Be As Bad As You Imagined

I wasn’t all that impressed with the three preview clips for The Cape, NBC’s new superhero drama, but this full-length trailer actually shows some promise.

I’m certainly not sold on the protagonist’s name or costume, but the trailer hits the right notes for an old-fashioned superhero adventure: a good man, accused of a crime he didn’t commit, forced to hide his identity to protect the people he loves while he battles evil and clears his name. Throw in a mentor, a supporting cast of misfits and an Oracle-like computer/information guru and voila!
