Alright, I'll hand it to you, that was pretty good (except for the totally gay "one man can make a difference" part 3:00 minutes in), though I don't like the fact that he's a superhero trying to clean up a city, because no one's ever done that storyline before. It might even be good enough for me to tune in and become a Glau fan, but I still think it's going to be cancelled because it is science fiction, and as we all know, except for a very selective few science fiction shows like Lost, they all don't last very long on network television, and with the fact that it's NBC, that looks even worse for them.

P.S. The kid is pretty thick if he can't figure out that his dad is The Cape, when the only thing that hides his face is a hoodie that covers less then half his face. Why the Hell is he not wearing the mask they stapled to his head when he was running through the train yard? That's what I thought they were going for when I originally saw it. It would have been a perfect symbol.

I never liked Prison Break either, but then again I've never really been a drama fan, as I have stated.

2.) I still like Reiko -- I just don't make much of an effort to follow her anymore because there's never any news because she never does anything. Should that change, rest assured that I'll be right back in like Flynn.
Alright, now this all makes sense.

Oh, it'll totally be cancelled, but I'd sooner see her on a new sci-fi series every season than, say, the same incarnation of Law & Order for the next 23 years. Enjoy it while it lasts, hold a grudge against the network for the rest of your life like a real man.

Plus, you'd think he'd know his own father's voice. But whatever. As always, I'm willing to suspend disbelief for the sake of entertainment. I don't think anyone was buying robots from the future either.

I already hold a grudge against NBC, like everyone, so I'm already halfway there!

Hey what the fuck. I watched every episode of prison break and found the first season (and to a lesser extent, the second) to be ranging from good to tolerable. I won't entertain any sort of argument that the last season or so was up to par. That would be nonsense.

Well, looks like the worst fears have been realized for bw. NBC's released there fall schedule, and as thought, The Cape is not on there, and will probably be a mid season replacement show.

But we already knew that, so I've already made my peace with it. Or, to put it another way, I'm not any more infuriated now than I already was.

Yeah, I know, that's why I said we already knew that, but still.

I just realized Paul Raines (Audrey's husband) is The Cape's supervillain. Needless to say, giggling ensued.

This is Chuck, which stars Chuck, the blonde from Mass Effect, and him.

She looks a little plain there. Sex up the outfit a little. Whoever heard of any show that enforces the business dress code?

Every legal drama ever made? Seriously though, Glau looks like shit whenever she is made to look deliberately sexy. Look up *any* promo shot for TSCC and it looks like someone took a pretty girl, sandblasted her with make up and tried to make her something she's not. The natural look is the way to go for her.

So with The Cape premiering tomorrow (and I think it's even the first 2 episodes), will discussion pick up again from all of you who want to gush over your beloved Glau? I've heard people are saying that the show is pretty terrible, but they have also said that Glau's role is one of the few good things about this show so that should be enough for the bw Glau fans of the world right?

Indubitably.

Premiere was tonight, actually, with an encore screening tomorrow. I'm reserving final judgment until a few more episodes have aired, but I don't have any problem with it at this stage aside from the pacing of the pilot. They did with Vince Faraday in ten minutes what Josh Friedman did with John Connor over 31 episodes. Still, it's hard to argue with what amounts to Batman with Summer as Oracle. It's fun, it's stylish, it has a sense of humor, and it's not another legal or medical drama. Plus, bangs:



Good enough for me. Give this girl the Oscar!

Ok, 2 things.

A. It would be an Emmy.

B. I would disagree with you, but since they award it to the same people every year it would be nice if they gave it to her. At least we would get to see a hot woman walk up to that stage.
