    One thing that bothers me is that good shows are brought on T.V and then many would rather watch shows like Dancing reality T.V. The cast and story brought imagination, wth a bit of suspense, humor, with a touch of romance. Even brought a few times that you wanted to hit the T.V. I will be heart broken if this show doesn't return to T.V. I usually don't sit and watch, but this show has brought my family in front of the T.V. and gave us entertainment that I believe people need to get away from reality for the hour it is presented on air.

    The pilot offers up the promising and the bland in about equal measure. With its accomplished adult cast, and writers from Chuck and Smallville, the show could go on to make for a pretty fun adventure series, but the looming threat of boring teenage gloom and the hints of a convoluted plot involving Stephanie Powell's sinister employer could sink whatever potential there is.

    Family is a trifle--part comic book, part kids' show--that is perfectly pleasant but without edge, bite or dramatic heft. With Chiklis aboard, it's like witnessing a concert pianist execute an elaborate version of "Chopsticks."
  3. The show's premise has enormous potential--it's essentially a live-action version of "The Incredibles," about a family that gains superpowers--but Tuesday's premiere disappoints with its slow-moving plot and whiny characters.
