    Use this thread to discuss the third episode, Mind's Eye.

    I'll be posting the ratings later, so stay tuned if you're interested.

    I liked the episode but a couple of things bothered me. We really don't get a good explanation why Albert was afraid to ride the bus. Maybe they will follow up on this in a future episode. Also, it seems like Owen couldn't just choose to agree to any price the customer presents over and over again. Was the only consequence a tiny bonus check? Or did I misunderstand what that was?

    I was wondering why he has a fear of buses. I am sure they will uncover more of that as the season progresses.

    Here are the ratings:

    4.4 million viewers total with 1.8 million in the 18-49 demo.

    EJamison: It wasn't Owen's bonus check, it was his regular check. So basically he took home a mere fraction of what he usually does / needs to.

    Here's a link to the TV Squad review:

    Usually when car salesman give out a discount it comes from his commission, so the effect of so many discounts was a pay cut. No explanation was given as to why Albert was afraid of getting on the bus, maybe in future episodes they will address that again. The first very enjoyable episode.

    Albert was afraid of riding the bus because he had an anxiety attack. Sometimes these attacks are inherited. That's why Joe could relate to him. My father and my brother have these and are bothered by closed spaces. My brother didn't have problems until he was 30.
