Most kids would love to have superpowers, but not No Ordinary Family's Daphne.
On the new ABC series, each member of the Powell family magically obtains a special power during a vacation gone awry. Mom Stephanie (Julie Benz) gets super-speed since she's always working or on the move. Dad Jim (Michael Chiklis) is a police sketch artist who becomes insanely strong. Brother JJ (Jimmy Bennett), who struggles to get good grades, becomes a genius. And Daphne (Kay Panabaker) can read people's minds.

After saving the life of loser leach and so-called best friend Bryce, Bradin thinks he might want to become a doctor. Well, I guess I can see him trading a surf board for a stethoscope, becoming one of those hot residents who makes the nurses and the patients swoon. The timing of his realization is perfect actually, since it helped Bradin decide to ditch Bryce at the height of his annoyingness. (His Jeff Spicoli act has gotten way old; how many times can we listen to his lame platitudes like there's plenty of time to be a loser — what's your rush?)No way he's concerned about Bradin's career; he's just worried the free ride might be over for good if Bradin decides to go to college. Looks like he'll have to mooch off someone else now. Meanwhile, Bryce's accident was a good excuse to bring back his sister Faith to Playa Linda — she has such great chemistrywith Bradin. But I was surprised to see her sharing scenes with Nikki. After all, the two actresses are sisters, and they really
