This is "No Ordinary" Giveaway


Studios have been trying to replicate the success of the first season of Heroes ever since the second and third seasons went down in flames. Last year they tried The Cape and No Ordinary Family, and you know what? Neither one really caught on [read: both were canceled]. And rightfully so. It's hard to get the superhero formula right (as 30 years of mixed film efforts have shown), and it looks like TV isn't going to be the exception to that tradition. This season we have SyFy's Alphas, which is also quite bad so don't get too comfortable with it. So, the only thing left to do in the meanwhile is take stock of where we've been so we know where we're going. The best way to do this? Watch those failed superhero TV shows on DVD. To do so, you're going to need a copy of No Ordinary Family's first season on DVD, and wouldn't you know it, we've got two copies to give away. To find out how you can win one, just keep reading.

After 16 years of marriage, Jim Powell (Michael Chiklis) looks to reconnect with his busy family while joining his wife Stephanie (Julie Benz) on a business trip to South America. But when their plane crash-lands in the Amazon River, they realize that they will never be quite the same. Literally. Soon after the incident, each family member shows signs of developing their own unique superhuman ability. Will these newfound powers finally reunite the family or pull them further apart?
