| The pun in the title is the single most interesting aspect of this
18 months ago. Cop Matt Parkman(Grunberg, well-meaning, not too self-assured. See, he *can* get a big role without being picked out of J.J.'s much-referenced rolodex) tries to talk some sense into a young guy he's picked up a number of times. So he won't keep knocking over houses. ...is...is that why they call him...? Or is it because he is the one who... Knox(Hector, intimidating)? Yes, this is about the dull, bland "scary" villain. ...well, the one who, inexplicably, got a lot of screen-time, of them. At least Flint connected to... anyway. His power is to become physically stronger via the fear of other people, and this is of course where he realizes this. This has some pretty decent tension.

This is one of the three mini-series that take place in the same universe as Heroes, aired as webisodes before the show itself went off the air, and has since been put on the season 3 set of it. The other two are Going Postal and Nowhere Man. This one was placed as deleted scenes, since if there's one thing the show did, it was take footage and bits and cut and/or move them around, vastly changing the character dynamics. Let's just throw everything at the wall and see what sticks. This comes to 8 minutes, and 4 parts. Without knowing the budget, I would say it looks pretty good. Fine storytelling, pacing, production, direction, editing, cinematography, FX, sound work, music, dialog, acting, casting, etc.

There is some brutal violence and disturbing content in this. I recommend this only to completists. 7/10
