THE CAPE, NBC, JAN. 9, 9 P.M.
Between Phoenix Jones, Special, Defendor, Kick-Ass, and the upcoming Super, it seems ordinary men becoming superheroes is the thing here in the aughts. With that in mind, say hello to The Cape! NBC's latest attempt at a genre show promises to be what Heroes wasn't, which is a good thing, if only because it means co-star Summer Glau might actually wind up on a TV show that lasts for more than a blink.
