When Geeks Speak They Get a Sneak Peak
In an office of nine people who specialize in website design, web-based software development and iPhone/iPad and Android apps, I hear techno gobbledygook a lot. It's just otherwise known to the rest of the world as "geek speak." However, if you are of that certain mindset that the meek, I mean, the geek, shall inherit the earth, NBC apparently now finally agrees with you, at least with regards to its new winter lineup.
In an effort to reach its obvious target audience, NBC is offering a “geek sneak peak” of the series premiere of The Cape via the free DC Comic app (only on the iPad). Although the show's main character (a wronged law enforcement individual who turns to crime fighting) is not based on any specific DC Comic character, it's not a stone's throw far from many available options. See Batman, Superman, etc. — basically anything with a cape. EUREKA! We have a pilot title!
But, before you get your hopes up, be warned that this geek sneak peak is just that: a sneak peak. It only includes the first hour of the complete two-hour premiere. However, if you do download it, watch it and love it, you won't have long to wait. You can catch the rest this Sunday at 9/8C on NBC.
