Critic Reviews for No Ordinary Family Season 1

All Critics (30) | Top Critics (15)

For viewers who want to see how a mom who can outrun traffic on the Los Angeles freeway tries to rebuild her image at home, No Ordinary Family might be a refreshing cup of tv.

Jul 12, 2018 | Full Review…

Though No Ordinary Family bears many hallmarks of an interesting failure, it falls slightly short of the distinction on account of its resistance to being consistently interesting.

Top Critic

No Ordinary Family requires a lot more work for a measurably reduced payoff.

t's like witnessing a concert pianist execute an elaborate version of Chopsticks.

Top Critic

With believable chemistry together, Chiklis and Benz help create a solid TV couple and, let's hope, no ordinary series.

Sep 28, 2010 | Full Review…

While No Ordinary Family is not yet as riveting as it could be, early plot lines suggest that it may grow into more suspenseful viewing as the series develops.

Oct 3, 2018 | Full Review…

Everything in the family stories are underlined and in bold face, and the focus of the pilot is so heavily on the parents that the kids barely register as more than types.

Jul 12, 2018 | Full Review…

No Ordinary Family is not only a wonderful comic book style inspired series, but one that audiences -- will tend to shy away from.

Jul 12, 2018 | Full Review…

No Ordinary Family is certainly no ordinary superhero series. Yes, there's some crime-fighting -- ... but the focus here is more on how an average family tries to adapt to a very unusual situation.

Jul 12, 2018 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

If you're up for some fun, straight-forward action and comedy, served up from an extremely likeable cast, you've come to the right place.

Oct 11, 2013 | Full Review…

Perhaps they will find a way to make future episodes more entertaining with a less world-weary tone. But after the pilot, some viewers may be hard-pressed to give this less-than-super Family another chance.

Sep 28, 2010 | Full Review…

A benign, breezy superhero action-comedy, it's got a premise out of The Incredibles mixed with the likable tone of the old eighties show The Greatest American Hero.
