Editor's NoteAs originally broadcast on ABC beginning in September 2010, the one-season fantasy series NO ORDINARY FAMILY toplines Michael Chiklis as Jim Powell, a husband, father and police sketch artist who feels a bit distant from wife Stephanie (Julie Benz) and two adolescent children, Daphne (Kay Panabaker) and J.J.
