Review - No Ordinary Family Season 1 Episode 5 No Ordinary Quake

If next week's episode has some of that Incredibles crime-fighting family stuff, we can look at "No Ordinary Quake" as the episode when No Ordinary Family went from lame family dramedy to an awesome family action dramedy.

The pacing is fast and gives Jim and Stephanie plenty to do--and they finally work together for a change! We see another person who has powers, a woman who's been developed (?) to have cool sonic boom powers. Jim finally tells Stephanie that others have powers and JJ finally tells the truth. At least we can move on from the useless lies now.

"No Ordinary Quake" was the strongest episode so far with everything going on with Jim and Stephanie and JJ finally revealing his powers, but there's still endless pieces to pick apart.

Daphne's powers seem terrible in comparison to JJ's. While JJ can do the craziest math, calculating length, weight, density, and 50 other variables with the naked eye, all Daphne can do is hear a sentence of unspecific information.

Another thing I learned from No Ordinary Family: Pee is in DNA! JJ didn't notice anything funny about it so it must be real!

Score: 8.8/10
