I just finished watching No Ordinary Family. First impression:
The show is a mashup between Greatest American Hero, Bionic Woman and of course The Incredibles with the addition of a lair or Bat cave. If the capes and costumes come out I might add Wonder Woman (favorite) and Superman but for now I’ll leave it at that.
The show is not bad, might even be good at some point. The part I did NOT like was the part when the wife, played by Julie Benz realizes she’s very fast. Her workmate points out that she’ll always have a high metabolism and can eat whatever she wants and always be a size zero.
Zero? is what has inspired me to write about this show tonight. Julie Benz does not look sickly but the size zero sure sounds like it and a comment like that has no place on prime time in my opinion. I have to safeguard my girls, and even myself from this constant pressure to be thin. Here I was trying to find a family show but I will have to see a little more before I let my kids watch this if the writers are irresponsible with their statements. By the way my favorite character is the dad, he’s very realistic and even though he’s a man I totally relate to him!
