The Cape?!?

Just got finished watching this. My thoughts? I have them. They probably echo yours. For the most part. I could write more, however, I have to give up the computer in seven minutes, so, in no particular order...

  • It's Batman.
  • Wait, no, it's not.
  • A Crime Fighting Magician? 
  • Oh, wait. That's been done before, too.
  • Weird.
I should probably expand on these points one by one, and make this a really pretty bloglike post.

Several have given you a review that rates somewhere on the high side of The Suck Scale, however, I'm here to tell you different. It doesn't truly blow righteous chunks. Chunks, yes. Whether or not they're righteous or not is up to you.

It turns out this never posted, and it's what, 5 years later, and I'm clearing out the Drafts folder as it were, and I remember watching all of these episodes and even the parody on Community as well.  My thoughts are the same as they were when I watched it for the first time.

I had a discussion at church the other day about how all shows look the same after awhile, and they're stealing plots from each other too. We all agreed that I was right. The superhero genre will always exist, and the same 36 plots with continue to exist as well. Hollywood will continue to crank out things that the majority doesn't like in the name of entertainment.

We could get into trivial word definitions at this point, however it follows that I will write and get paid for it on a more than occasional basis, and if you read, that's cool. Leaving a comment is better however.

Adjust your expectations accordingly.
