    It would be nice if the exposition were less clunky and the show did more to capture what is special about its San Francisco setting. Still, the actors are enjoyable, and their series in large part does what it sets out to do.

    A cape is simply not exciting or convincing as a superhero weapon. And making constant jokes in the dialogue about the flaw isn't the same as fixing it. To its credit, The Cape is at least easier to follow than The Event and is less mythology-burdened than Heroes.

    The problem is that these opening outings feel too much like they’re cramming in all the time-travel basics--establishing the rules (no do-overs), explaining the risks, posing a variation on the old “Would you kill Hitler” question.

    Whatever one thinks of the format, the briskly paced setup is effectively done.
