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.

July 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

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

September 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.
