The Cape is likely to be cancelled? Well 8 out of 10 new shows on Broadcast Network are at the end of the first season eventually (especially mid-season shows) and The Cape is no exception to the rule that's all.
The Cape is supposed to have a great cast : Keith David, David lyons, James Frain,…
But everyone focus and comment on Summer Glau, not only on the fans boards. Why is that?
Because Summer Glau has an appealing power very few actress or actors have.
Being casted on a major network was a good opportunity for Summer Glau because she was heavily promoted and that was an occasion for her to broaden her fanbase. We have seen articles about her in every major blog or site related to tv programs, i have seen a lot of people saying that she has changed for the better since Firefly.
Fortunately for Summer Glau, Network Execs don’t think like some idiots who posts negatives comments.
They know Summer Glau was the only buzz-whorthy actor on The Cape. They know a lot of viewers watched the show only for her. Not for David Lyons, not even for Keith David or James Frain. Only for Summer.
Summer plays in the first league now and she won’t leave it.It’s just the way networks works : once an actor is well-known, networks will enrole her/him on others shows. Did former TSCC actors encouters difficulties to find a new show? The answer is no.
The Cape was a first step into leaving the scifi niche; sure she is the scifi queen but it's time for her to enter the real world (aka Doctors/Cops/Lawyers Dramas)
Summer is free to move on another bigger and maybe more successful project. We at the summerglau wiki will follow her no matter what. Will you join us?
