No Ordinary Family 1.02 ''No Ordinary Marriage'' Review

'When you were in art school, did you ever think you'd wind up doing this for a living? You must've been really talented.

'I'm not the stupid one here, JJ. Please don't treat me like I am.

Ouch. Before the Powells even had superpowers they were making enemies. And for seemingly no good reason. Jim's coworker and JJ's teacher harbor some unreasonable angst toward our heroes. Perhaps we'll get a deeper look into why as the show continues, but I for one would never treat Jim the way he gets bullied here. Not only is he the sweetest guy in the world, but he looks like he could snap a man in half with his pinkies. And now he can!

No Ordinary Marriage managed to be a much tighter episode than the pilot thanks to the lack of an origin story. It chronicled the Powells trying to understand how, when, and even if, they should be using their newfound abilities. After a botched attempt to stop some thieves that resulted in Jim being (hilariously) run over, and Stephanie tripping over some wildly irresponsible tyke's tricycle while traveling at super speed, the couple came to an agreement that their powers should stay in a lockbox until they better understand what exactly is the nature of them.
