Bartitsu gets an unexpected shout-out in this preview for a new NBC superhero series:

YouTube- The Cape - Preview (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PYfJSZZpia0&feature=player_embedded)

The Bartitsu Society anticipates a sudden rush of kids wanting to learn how to disarm supervillains with their raincoats. More at http://www.bartitsu.org/index.php/2010/05/bartitsu-ref-in-new-superhero-drama-the-cape/ .

It actually looks better than most of the shows out there right now.

"Say hi to Dorothy bitch." lol. I'll tune in for an episode or two.

Hell, I'll watch anything with kick-ass midgets in it.

Anyone ever read The Tick? I remember an issue with a cameo by a hero also called The Cape. The difference between that one and this is I doubt NBC's version intended to be ridiculous.

At least it'll be better than the last season of Heroes

Bartitsu's getting a lot of rep now a days, steam punk must be creeping back into style.

Pop-culture interest has been off the charts since the Sherlock Holmes movie.

The cape looks like a Assasins Creed rip off. Hell lot of points for originality, I would watch it.

YouTube- Águila Roja: buscando un héroe (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3-xNGrAJH-s)

Though, Summer Glau, yummy!:bully:

Summer Glau makes anything better.

I once designed an assassin character for Dragonlance who used a cape with spring loaded blades in the hem.

I think I flunked chemistry cause I was designed that fucking thing

Damn I started laughing when he grabbed the cup with his robe in the beginning but It looks pretty awesome! lol
