    That last fifteen minutes really was an awkward mish-mash of rushed, out-of-character twists and turns. Blecchh!

    I understand Chiklis has already signed on for a new pilot, so it seems that we're done with this one!

    I hope Julie Benz gets something GOOD really soon.

    I doubt this show will be back but an actor signing on to a new pilot doesn't really mean anything. Actors do that all the time when they aren't sure if the show they are on will be coming back next season. Can't wait till they know for sure because then it is too late to get on a show for the next season.
    If No Ordinary Family does somehow come back he will be back with it.

    I enjoyed it for the most part, but the whole thing with the plane and the convicts was just DUMB. There's probably a far easier, replicable transformation set-up that could be constructed than to duplicate the plane crash exactly. Plus, you're an evil corporation... would you WANT permanent powers in your criminal underlings? No... you'd want your underlings addicted to the power-giving serum. Makes them easier to control.

    I saw Chiklis on a couple of talk shows last week pimping NOF, so that tells me there was at least some hope that the show would be back.

    Crossing fingers. It's got a LOT of promise I think.

    Dr. King said something like "I can do everything your family can do -- but better!" Apparently just not solve the equations J. J. was working on?

    So Dr. King had all of those powers all along?

    Dr. King IS really Jacob's father?

    Will we ever learn what George's power is? Only time will tell.

    Yeah but Chiklis is also an Executive Producer and it may not just be a star perk.
    From what I've read, the chances of this show getting picked up are pretty slim.


    Dr. King megadosed himself with the serum so I'm guessing that's why he manifested all of those powers.

    I also found this episode to be somewhat all over the place in the last act.
    I've sensed a lot of network interference on this show so this is no surprise.

    The writers did a decent job in trying to get the family to fight together at the end. I think it came off too forced, particularly for the mom and Daphne, but it was a good try. I wish they had more scenes like that earlier in the season.

    The last half hour was so bad I was laughing out loud. They turned it into a cartoon and turning Dr King into the Super Skrull led to some of the worst acting I've ever seen on a prime time TV show.

    It has to be cancelled. That was just too awful to continue.

    Gotta' agree with you there. I would think that Stephen Collins would want that final scene of his erased from his portfolio. I was squirming and cringing where you were laughing. I was embarrassed on the actors' behalf.

    You're making the assumption that Stephen Collins is actually a good actor to begin with.

    Just go look at his performance in Star Trek: TMP. Not much difference between him and a wood plank there.

    A corner of my mind was expecting King to say "I can outstretch Reed Richards. Oops, wrong show". :D

    Overall, I've liked this show, but that scene was not one of its best.

    I haven't watched the episode yet, did they actually try to tie up the series? This show is guarenteed cancelation so I just am hoping it does not end on a cliff hanger.

    It tied the main storyline up pretty well, and set it up so it COULD go into another season if by some miracle it got picked up.
