michael chiklis nof 'No Ordinary Family' preview: 'Just think like something that can fly'“No Ordinary Family” is the new superhero family show from ABC starring Michael Chiklis (“The Shield”) and Julie Benz (“Dexter”) as Jim and Stephanie Powell, whose plane crashes in the Amazon along with their two children Daphne and JJ (Kay Panabaker and Jimmy Bennett).

Following the crash, with the help of their friends George (Romany Malco, “Weeds”) and Katie (Autumn Reeser, “Entourage”), the Powells discover their “Incredibles”-esque superpowers. Chiklis’ Jim Powell hopes it will bring the family closer together, while helping him do some good in the world.

Zap2it’s own Rick Porter enjoys the superhero origin story of the pilot and says the family that’s unraveling half needs work, but there’s hope for a cohesive show. Watch the sneak peek clips below and tell us what you think.

“No Ordinary Family” premieres Tuesday night (Sept. 28) at 8 p.m. ET on ABC
