    I love the idea, but I won’t even bother for European users. I don’t think I can handle another “this content is unavaiable in your region”

  • Being in Canada, I fully understand the dreaded “this content is unavaiable in your region”. Of course, being in Canada, it worked for me! So take a moment and give it a try.

    Thanks. I watched the first hour of the show.
    Don’t set your high hopes on this one! What I watched so far, the show is a gimmick. There is no depth, everything is black and white, obvious and sappy. If it continues like this I see a cancelation. Bonus for shirtless hot guy.

    An ironic ending for the first hour. Yeah, they definitely need to work on it, if there is any possibility of saving this.

    Maybe I’m a complete moron, but I downloaded the app but can’t seem to access/find The Cape, not by browsing or by latest added content or in free content. In fact, there’s no video content whatsoever there, only comics, which, you know, are nice for the fans and stuff, but I have no message to that. 😛

  • I guess I’m a moron also because I couldn’t figure it out either.

  • To all those having trouble seeing it, you have to click the “featured” tab, and you should a promo for THE CAPE in one of the top 4 images.

    Ah, well, waiting for Sunday (Monday) won’t be the hardest thing I’ll ever have to do.

    I’m watching this now, and so help me, I’m really enjoying it. Yes, it’s cliche and cheesy and all, but it’s got some genuinely funny moments too.

    We enjoyed it, in a totally un-ironic, un-self-aware way. It was brainless fun. And it has one big advantage over No Ordinary Family in that it is wonderfully bereft of angsty teen romance subplots. This is not going to be something I will go out of my way to see, but I suspect I will enjoy watching it whenever I catch it on

    I’m shocked to say, I actually kinda like it. He’s kind of a cross between Batman (only not rich, and has a circus performer instead of a butler) and The Punisher (only his family wasn’t murdered).
    The cape effects are a bit cheesey, but this is NBC, so…
