The Cape Soundtrack [2011]

Thumb resize.

The Cape was not a very well-received show when it aired on NBC in January and February of 2011. In fact, it was so widely panned by audiences that only 9 episodes made it to TV before the show was cancelled. Despite the show’s general failure, however, the producers did make at least one excellent decision when they hired Bear McCreary (Battlestar Galactica, Caprica, Eureka) to compose the show’s background score. The plot of The Cape revolves around the character of Vince Faraday (played by David Lyons), a cop who is framed for murder. Everyone thinks he is dead, however, so he takes on the superhero identity of his son’s favorite comic book character, The Cape, and goes around trying to clear his name and fight the bad guys. How well he manages to do this is open to interpretation, but there is no question that McCreary has managed to create a high-quality cinematic score to accompany all the action.
