NBC has new heroes. No not those heroes, but some other ones on the new TV series, The Cape. The Cape stars David Lyons as the good-cop-turned-super-hero. The show treads a dangerous line of being comic-y to the point of seeming insincere, but if you can get into that head space, it is worth watching.
In recent years free running, or “parkour” has exploded around the world. From 007 to Mirror’s Edge this new extreme sport has captured the attention of nerds and ninja fans everywhere. Until now no series has actually documented how these extreme athletes train, and how they get to be “the best there is at what they do”. G4’s new reality series Jump City Seattle follows Seattle’s best free runners and their incredibly ninja like behavior. Check out these amazing athletes in action on Conan ,and ask yourself, “Do we really need a CG Spiderman?”
Answer: No, no we don’t.
