NO ORDINARY FAMILY “No Ordinary Powell” Review

NO ORDINARY FAMILY "No Ordinary Powell" Season 1 Episode 15 - Information is starting to come from every direction and at a rapid speed, too. In tonight’s episode "No Ordinary Powell," Dr. King wants to know the who, what, and how of the Powells’ powers. Stephanie tracks Dr. King from inside Global Tech; and Jim checks out Dr. King’s ties on the outside. All three roads lead to shape-shifter Victoria, who is actually Amelia, the adopted daughter of Dr. King.

I know tonight’s NO ORDINARY FAMILY was all about intrigue, action and suspense, but even more so, I found it to be absolutely hilarious – in a good way. It was funny to watch Kay Panabaker, Julie Benz, and Romany Malco acting as Victoria, pretending to be Daphne, Stephanie, and George. They all had expressions like deer caught in headlights, which might have been intentional since they are actually supposed to be a clueless Victoria being them. Panabaker did a good impersonation of an adult. I couldn’t tell much difference in Benz as Stephanie and Benz as Victoria/Stephanie. Malco was super funny as Victoria/George, acting stupefied to the nth degree. The comical effect was less evident when the characters involved knew about the imposter. Michael Chiklis did a great job differentiating between Jim and Victoria/Jim. You could tell who he was portraying, even without following one of the Jims, as you would the ball in the three shells game. Even Benz as Stephanie/Victoria at the end with Dr. King was more clearly defined, if not a little too flirtatious for a scheming daughter-father chat. Read More...
