Meet the Powells: unfulfilled father, Jim (Michael Chiklis - Fantastic Four, The Shield) is a police sketch artist who's married to beautiful and brilliant medical researcher Stephanie (Julie Benz - Defiance, Dexter, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Angel) with whom he has a son JJ (Jimmy Bennett) who's failing high school and a social misfit daughter, Daphne (Kay Panabaker). After Stephanie turns a scientific research trip to Brazil into a family holiday and their plane is brought down by a storm, they emerge from the crash with new abilities. Jim becomes virtually invulnerable and super-strong (but sadly, never utters the words "It's clobberin' time!"), Stephanie gains super-speed (which she initially uses to, er, do the housework...), Daphne can suddenly read minds (and more, as her abilities develop) and JJ develops a better-than-genius intellect. In other words, they become No Ordinary Family.

The show gets off to a great start, as the family discover their powers and test them with comedic results. The series continues to be a fun romp but quickly falls into the rut of using the usual "super villain of the week" format that plagued older superhero shows such as Smallville and Mutant X and still plagues more modern ones such as Marvel's Agents of SHIELD.

To offset this, the writers attempted to build in an ongoing plot which works about as well as it did when Chris Carter tried it in The X-Files. Worse, there are strange character changes and flip-flops between episodes to fit the current storyline, similarly to how Lex Luther's personality changed regularly through every season of Smallville - just watch for how Stephanie's devious boss, Dr.

I came to this series late and just watched it on DVD over the course of about two weeks. I absolutely loved it.

The casting was superb, the scripts were, for the most part, top notch. I really enjoyed watching the family evolve and with each episode
something new was brought to the table. It alternated effortlessly from being amusing to being dark. Most importantly it had heart and
intelligence. The SFX were amongst the best I've seen on TV.

So how did this get canceled when so much crud runs on and on? A limited appeal? Lackluster promotion? Too good for its own good?
Clearly it wasn't deemed to generate enough advertising revenue because at the end of the day it's not about quality but about profit.

A series that will leave you wanting more. Still, it's worth watching as a stand alone season. I just wish there were more to come.

Awesome show, whilst first few episodes setting up the back story are a little slow the series soon gathers momentum. You could pick holes in some of the useage of their powers if you're determined not to sit back and enjoy it but why would you want to? Yet another great sci-fi fun drama that the studios just don't want to succeed by giving the fan base time to develop. With so many shows cancelled after 1 series is it any wonder that sci-fi fans are slow to invest our time in a new series. What they don't get is our loyalty. Once we are hooked we stay hooked and eventually word of mouth grows organically into a sizeable fan base. Shame the big production companies don't consider leasing or selling a show that they have invested in, to a smaller company to see if the uptake improves with time. Or more simultaneous international releases as with Gotham.

This is a rare sort of product, a sci-fi series that works, both in content and entertainment value. Keeps you interested all the way through, with some delicious twists and turns.

Nice quality production; as usual you have to put up with the ever-present "Previously on tra la la", but I guess if you've been watching it once a week on the box, then you might need reminding what happened last time. If you buy this box set, however, you might get a bit fed up with the intros. OK, they change a bit, but not so much as is worthy of comment.

I'm no fan of American humour, per se, but I thoroughly enjoyed this - in fairness, I'm not sure whether this is humour or not, but I'm taking it as that because it's not all black doom and gloom; just a nice family trying to keep their lives together. There's a nice mix of characters, most of whom are just trying to get by keeping things normal, and not always managing it.

Nice balance of goodies and baddies, full of plenty of "oh, come on, he'd see that coming or not do that" to, "ha, glad that happened". Well worth the price, and I'd heartily recommend this series.

Two small words of caution: I ordered this from Amazon UK, but this is (at the moment) a Region 1 NTSC offering (I bought an all-region Sony Blu-Ray DVD player, so it wasn't a problem). Secondly, and sadly, you never know how long this type of sci-fi offering will go on for. There's definitely plenty of scope for the next season, and the way each episode is presented, everything is quite tidy, with, for the most part, a different story to each episode. There's a general theme throughout which will need to be well worked out, so let's hope it runs the course. It deserves to go on for more than just one more season, though, so I'm keeping my fingers crossed.

Since I said all this before, I'll add that I've just noted (Wikipedia) that the show has now been canned. Such a pity, because it was a class act
