Just watch the trailer first:
I’m really liking the look of this show! Kind of like The Incredibles… but then real. So what are everyone’s powers? From what I can gather from the trailer the father’s got invincibility/super strength or something like that; the mother superspeed; and the daugther telepathy. But what about the son? You saw all the math symbols ‘light up’, super intelligence?
Here’s ABC’s description:
The Powells are about to go from ordinary to extraordinary. After 16 years of marriage, Jim and Stephanie’s relationship lacks the spark it once had, and their family life now consists of balancing work and their two children, leaving little time for family bonding. During a family vacation set up by Jim in an attempt to reconnect, their plane crashes into the Amazon River. But this is where the fun starts for the Powells, as they soon discover that something’s not quite right. Each of them now possesses unique and distinct superpowers. But saving and savoring their family life will be equally important, as they try to find purpose for their new powers and embark on a journey to find out what defines and unifies them. The Powells are a totally relatable family who happen to be a little bit amazing.
It stars Michael Chiklis (The Shield) as Jim Powell, Julie Benz (Dexter) as Stephanie Powell, Kay Panabaker as Daphne Powell and Jimmy Bennett as JJ Powell. Side characters are Romany Malco (The 40-Year-Old Virgin) as George St. Cloud, Tate Donovan (Damages) as Mitch McCutcheon, Autumn Reeser as Katie Andrews and Christina Chang as Yvonne Cho.
