“No Ordinary Family” premiered on ABC Tuesday (Sept.) as the lead-in to “Dancing With the Stars” results show. What did you think of the superhero family show?
The cheesy family-can’t-connect storyline feels a little forced and contrived, but perhaps the family dynamic will become more nuanced as the series goes on. It wasn’t terrible, it just wasn’t the strongest part of the premiere.
However, Michael Chiklis and Julie Benz as Jim and Stephanie Powell discovering their new super powers was delightful to watch. They have very entertaining relationships with their respective best friends George (Romany Malco) and Katie (Autumn Reeser), who are helping them figure out what they can now do.
We also liked the cliffhanger — there are evil people with super powers too and apparently Stephanie’s boss Dr. Dayton King (Stephen Collins) knows all about it. We’re intrigued to see where that goes.
