Chaz Bono

'No Ordinary Family' 1x02 Recap: 'No Ordinary Marriage'

NOF George
The episode opens, and Jim is on the run. He leaps onto the roof of a nearby building and his momentum causes him to skid right off the other side. Thankfully, there's another small ledge beneath that, and he's able to jump safely.

His earpiece rings, and George is on the other line; he chides him on his landing- it must make it difficult to hide a super-human man when he's denting in the pavement all across the city.

Jim wants to spend less time talking about his technique and more time getting directions to the robbery he's apparently on his way to stopping. The cops are still over thre...

In this brave new world, where every series is in ex...

Sold exclusively at Wal-Mart, Billboard gave Eden the boost to No. 1 after changing an arcane rule, which nixed big box retailers such as Wal-Mart and Starbucks from being...
