a total nail-biter...
15 July 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Tyler (Jeremy Piven) is a man that has been struck by lightning and now has the ability to read people minds. The story goes through all his trials and tribulations on how his new found 'power" affects his life and the lives of the people around him. This episode is a real nail-biter, and Piven acting is extremely believable in his portrayal of Tyler. A particular great scene is when Shannon (Olivia d'Abo) and Tyler (Piven) are in his apartment and she is telling him that he has incredible powers, but that he is stealing other people's money. She then leaves and as he looks down Shannon is hugging Tylers long-time friend, Buddy, played by Vincent Laresca. Tyler then freaks out and does some weird things himself. Tyler follows her to the playground and tries to talk to her. The events afterward are totally crazy and i will not go into them you'll just have to watch. The ending is particularly interesting. Enoy this episode because it is honestly a true and classic episode of "The Twilight Zone"
