That was one awesome episode and I loved getting to know Rachel a little better. Her powers has some serious drawbacks she can't even handle a kiss, so I'm guessing she still a virgin. There was so many awesome moments in this episode from Bill having superspeed, Hicks beating the jocks ass without even throwing punch, to Gary saying" i'm a baller" lmao.

I must say, this show is getting better as it goes along. The pacing of this episode was brilliant. Even during the "slow" moments, it still felt like the story was moving forward consistently. We also found out about their former cover story.

Bill has super speed. Awesome.

That fight scene in the hallway was pretty cool.

I wanna see more of bills superspeed and how fast he can actually run. Super cool. Way more believable than heroes or smallville's version of superspeed.

I'm digging this show and thank God this show isn't on one of the major networks. We may actually get more than one season from it.

I think if we're going for more realistic abilities, Bill's top speed might be 40-50 mph.

I loved everything about this week's episode. Gary was very hilarious. He's a baller. Rachel is still cute as the lovable shy girl. Bill's super speed was great, and Hicks did awesome stuff again.

Didn't get to see the episode yet, but I don't mind being spoiled.

And when I heard about Bill's superspeed, it made sense: his ability is to activate his 'fight or flight' response, so I figured the audience will eventually see some kind of burst in speed or 'flight'. Loving this show so far.

Gary's show could be called "Respect the Badge." 8 part web series of the adventures of a baller.

Isn't this like the same thing as Heroes?

Also the Alphas stuff is all pretty much ripped off from X-Men. David Strathairn is basically playing Prof. Xavier.

Yes, its' exactly like Heroes, 4400, No Ordinary Family, Mutant X and a dozen other shows that only have one thing in common. Thank you for your discerning eye.

------

What I really love about this show is how sharp the psychology is. It makes the dialogue and the writing really pop. It's kind of like the Dr is what Professor X should be, able to manipulate people's minds with a single word, not really needing a power at all.

My favorite character is the black military guy. He is absolutely the hardest behind on the show. He fears nothing, it's so great.

I also love how everyone has a serious drawback. That's pretty awesome.

I am really liking this show. To me, it's the TV equivalent of Rise of the Planet of the Apes, in that going in, you have low expectations, and the premise seems shallow and has literally been done many times before. Yet, you leave satisfied.

I even liked how they handled the ongoing sexual tension between Nina and Hicks. Instead of stringing it (and us) along, they let the characters jump into it in a heated moment, then pull back. So the show is not being coy about it, but still placed a realistic barrier so that it's not a focus on every show.
