    As fun as the first two eps were, this is where the series hits its totally off-the-wall stride. I haven't laughed this hard at a sci-fi show in a long time as this ep was just brilliant. There was the constant shifting of the time zone labels. Wendy speaking English while subtitles in Spanish appeared below her. The Middleman's Hewbrew commentary. Mark Dacastos having an obvious blast as Master Ping. The "great battle" with that other masked man. We even get some character development with Wendy's dad and her ability to fly jets and her brief flirtiation with that other guy. We also get her in a Robin costume, Lacey in a teddy bear (which apparantly means something but we're not allowed to see what, which makes it more fun), wild kung fu battles and more of the Middleman's crazy lines. Please, please, ABC Family, do not cancel this show, this is fun TV hasn't seen since the heyday of "The Tick."
