This is the greatest show that NBC hasn't canceled yet. If you don't know what this show is about, and you even missed the recap marathon this past Sunday, then what good are you exactly? The show just keeps building and building, and creating new mysteries. Is it going to live up to our expectations with each week that passes? I sure hope so. Last night's episode was out of control, it had some awesome development and a couple little twists.

If you're a TiVoer you are best to stop reading here before I rip into spoilers.

Peter's power turns out to be way cooler than flying. He's a leech. He leeched Isaac's power just as he did his brother's when they fell off that building. I think it would be even cooler if in the next episode he leeches Niki's powers then proceeds to go on a sexual rampage with politicians...

What is Niki's superpower anyways, split personality? Last time I checked, split personality was a brain disorder. But maybe disorders can be cool, right? Same with heroin addiction! Who hasn't seen crazy shit while abusing illegal substances, am I right? I mean you could be fried on smack, staring at a tennis shoe and picture all of the Taiwanese children slaving away to piece together the intricacies of that shoe, and then you wake up on the kitchen floor in a pool of your own feces and vomit.

I fuckin love this show.
