NBC Dons “The Cape” To Fight Crime & Injustice (1/9/2011)

I’ve touched upon my interest in the superhero side of the entertainment realm by mentioning about my almost lifelong appreciation for the comic book medium and the adventures of great heroes such as Spider-Man, Batman, Superman and The Fantastic Four to name a choice few. It was one of the main reasons that I enjoyed being a member of the press at the 2010 NY Comic Con & Anime Festival and all of this brings me to the reason for this particular posting. It seems as though NBC is taking a plunge into the heroic action-adventure line of programming once again by offering us a show called “The Cape”. The show poster is below.

Airing Tonight: “Gene Simmons Family Jewels” Season 5

Gimme Five! Is what the KISS Fans and Reality Television Fans of the world are saying as the fifth season of “Gene Simmons Family Jewels” begins tonight on the A&E Network. Are you one of those viewers who picked up on this late or have you been here from the beginning?

The premise largely remains the same as the previous four seasons and in case you are just jumping on board I will avoid any previous season spoilers. I will say that it follows the life and times of Gene Simmons, musician and businessman along with his significant other Shannon Tweed and gives you an inside look into his happenings. It’s pretty fascinating to see what Simmons does to keep his name in the public eye and as I’ve mentioned in a previous season announcement post his kids are actually also a lot of fun as they are well rounded individuals too. Ciao for now my friends, I am once again trying to clear up some space on the tape that I record my shows on during the week so I can fit this on there. I went out A LOT this past week. It happens.
