Buy The Cape in the USA - or Buy The Cape in the UK

The new superhero TV series from NBC, The Cape. Looks a little like the Batman Begins concept crossed with Robocop. The last honest cop is framed by a corrupt city hall and supposedly executed, but with a little help from a mysterious travelling circus, he is resurrected as... The Cape.

He's trained to use a cape made of pure spider silk as a weapon, but can't tell his family who is he in case he jeopardises their lives, not even his son.

And The Cape's side-kick? Summer Glau!!!

Colour me impressed. Bring it to the UK soon, folks. Don't make the fans over here resort to BitTorrents to track this bad boy down.
