I have this idea that The Cape is trying to assemble the most insane group of villains in the history of television, topping all sci-fi aliens or fantasy creatures. The outside world of The Cape seems fairly normal, with industrialized cities and the like, but there’s so much wackiness on the inside that you have to treat the show as a comedy. This week, the big bad is the Lich, a fearsome thing lurking in the darkness, only drawing whispers under people’s breath. And if you think this is an exaggeration, the characters act like 12th century villagers afraid monsters–really!
Instead of an all-out fury, “Part 1” is actually contained, with very normal procedural elements and little fights, until the final twist in the end where Orwell gets captured by the Lich.
The stuff with Dana this week wasn’t just useless, but downright laughable. Was I flirting?!?!? NO!!!!!!!
