Vince decides to play Scales and get him to reveal that Flemming is Chess in public. The Carnival of Crime decides to get their thieving on. Orwell’s big twist is reveals (did anyone not see it coming?). Things don’t go as planned.
Richard Schiff again.
The Cape and The Cape.
Peter Flemming as a “White Hat.”
There were so many opportunities for really funny moments! I sat there waiting for it, but they never came.
The Orwell reveal - yawn.
Chess and The Cape buddy cops saving the day.
Schiff underused again.
I saw the prelim photos a week or so before I saw the episode, and was really looking forward to it - as I assumed it was going to be a rollicking adventure with laugh after laugh. Richard Schiff has such amazing timing, yet he had nowhere to go with such bland writing.
I am a week and a bit behind in my reviews - but it was annouced today that the order for The Cape has been slashed. So it doesn’t matter if I put it on notice, it is already dead.
