    And Supposedly they have already filmed the 10 episodes so it looks like Summer is out of a job again maybe one of these days she will land on a series that lasts.

    She is good, so this certainly is not a fault of her acting. She is being stuck in SF type things, maybe try another genre.

    I watched this week's episode last night and was not impressed. Now that I see this news, I'm just going to stop watching the show now.

    If I'm in ever in charge of a tv project, I'm not hiring Summer "Series Killer" Glau.

    Doubt that would work for with Summer's luck with anything she is in it would probably stop production before she even had a chance to get undressed. :eek:

    Nathan Fillian had that same rap. Then came Castle. I think sometimes it's about finding the right role and supporting cast. Of course if Fox hadn't canceled Firefly this might all be a mute point. ;)

    I saw the first ep but failed to keep up....I've lost interest and I guess NBC and most viewers have as well.

    See ya later Cape.

    Wonder if Comcast is starting to get involved in these decisions?

    Even if that's the case, "old NBC" would've made the same decision.

    The show was a midseason replacement, which already put it at a disadvantage. It didn't have any significant critical acclaim to speak of, and ratings that were headed in the wrong direction fairly quickly. Add all that up and you've got a dead series walking.

    How do these things get green lighted in the first place or put on the air once they have been looked at!

    The Cape really isn't all that bad. It's a comic book masquerading as a tv series. It's got gaping plot holes, ridiculous situations and over the top villains just like every comic book I've ever read.

    This. But most people can't get past that for a TV series.

    How many comic book style shows have been successful in TV.
    Lois and Clark really was more melodrama than comic book. Batman was more a comedy plus if it were done today in the same way it would probably be out the door quickly.

    I wanted to watch, but knew it would be cancelled in the first season, so I never gave it a chance.
    I guess I'm hurting the situation, but I hate investing time in something they just take away.

    I know this has already been discussed in the episode threads, but the fact is that most of the successful recent movies based on comic books and graphic novels have had a gritty, realistic edge to them. To me, the Cape had more of an eighties comic book movie/TV vibe. I just don't think many people are looking to watch something as silly as The Cape.

    Poor Summer. Some day she will be on the same show for years. Just my prediction.
