No Ordinary Family
8/7c ABC
Dysfunctional families will try anything to become close again: Sunday dinners; TV hour; or even therapy. For the Powells, it's a simple matter of harnessing their respective superpowers. Of course, for Jim (Michael Chiklis), Stephanie (Julie Benz) and their two teenage kids, it takes a plane crash in the Amazon for these abilities to kick in, and in tonight's sci-fi drama series premiere, police sketch-artist Jim tests the limits of his immense strength, while his scientist wife measures her amazing speed. — Joe Friedrich

Ken Burns Adds to Baseball History with The Tenth Inning

The star of Ken Burns' The Tenth Inning — besides baseball itself — is Barry Bonds.

"He had to be," Burns says.

While Babe Ruth did it on hot dogs and beer and Hank Aaron on a diet no one ever questioned, Bonds is suspected to have set baseball's all-time home-run record on steroids. So Bonds looms large throughout the four hours of Burns' follow-up to his Emmy-winning 1994 documentary series Baseball.

Burns and partner Lynn Novick — whose credits include the masterful The Civil War and Jazz — expansively cover the last 16 years of the sport, including... read more

War Is Hell -- But Heavenly TV

On Friday, TV Guide editors got an early glimpse at a new masterpiece. When it comes to the latest anything by Ken Burns, it's never too soon to get the buzz started.The great and eloquent documentarian and his longtime producing partner Lynn Novick stopped by the offices to show selected scenes from his latest epic: The War, a seven-part, 14 1/2-hour exploration of World War II through the eyes and emotionally charged recollections of "ordinary" citizens who either served in the trenches of the European or Pacific theaters or who lived through it on the home front. No talking-head experts or academics in this vivid history — it’s mostly first-person, focusing on nonfamous (for now) members of four communities meant to symbolize the impact of this “worst war” on a country at once united and shattered by the horrors of combat. (The witnesses hail from Waterbury, Connecticut; Mobile, Alabama; Sacramento, California; and Luverne, Minnesota.)Burns told us that WWII v... read more

Premise: This stirring history of the sport first aired, conveniently, during a baseball strike, and it was the perfect antidote to the first World Series-less year since 1904. The miniseries, like many from Ken Burns, made deft use of still photos, interviews and archival footage to give the past a wonderfully nostalgic air of years truly gone by, and it effectively documented racism's toll on the national pastime in the first half of the 20th century.
