The Cape made its two-hour premiere on Sunday night, and I can almost hear the jeering derisiveness many of you probably feel toward a superhero show that’s not artily moody or grittily grim.

It’s a superhero series about a guy (ER‘s David Lyons) with a cool — what else? — cape. Lyons’ Vince Faraday is a cop–turned–crime fighter who can flick the hem of his cape and snag people, objects, or anything in its path.
