Preview of ABC's No Ordinary Family

Fall TV Spotlight: No Ordinary Family

I've been giving you the 411 on the most talked-about TV shows coming at you this Fall, and today I have yet another series to plug: No Ordinary Family.

  • Who's in it: Michael Chiklis of The Shield is Jim, the patriarch of the Powell family; Dexter's Julie Benz costars as his wife, and Kay Panabaker (Fame) and Jimmy Bennett (Star Trek) play their kids.
  • What it's about: In an attempt to reconnect with their children (and with each other), the Powells decide to go on vacation. But when their plane crashes over the Amazon River, the chemicals in the water leave the family members with superpowers.
  • Why it caught my attention: Several critics are touting this as a live-action version of The Incredibles, which seems to bode well — especially in the wake of the cancellation of Heroes when many viewers may be hankering for their superhero fix. Plus, it also stars Romany Malco, who cracked me up in The 40-Year-Old Virgin.
  • Show most likely to: Make me nostalgic for The Secret World of Alex Mack.
