Should be interesting to see Daphne continuing to try proactively using her ability for something more substantial than getting into a party.

They really need to stop writing characters and dialog so broadly.

Average episode, pretty much a waste of some nice guest stars.

More and more I'm wanting a spin-off series where the black lawyer and lab assistant get superpowers and go off fighting crime and having fun without any angst and whining.

it was nice to see the dad be concerned about using his boy's powers... but not overly concerned... when he allowed his boy to take advantage of his in-law's...

I really, really enjoyed this episode. The in-laws were great and it was fun seeing some family dysfunction with in-laws which is something many families experience. The plot with the home invaders was also good it brought up a good moral issue of what the right thing to do was. I am really glad this show is doing well.

The guy Daphne was trying to help, it's Jasper from the Twilight movies!

The daughter looks like a young Amber Tamblyn. I only noticed that last night.

^ I was going to mention that as well - Tamblyn from her Joan of Arcadia days.

I also enjoyed the episode, and fun seeing how the family tried to keep their powers secret from grandma & grampa. And total WIN for J.J. winning that nice Mustang, even though it was Daph that got to drive it.

This was another fun episode, though I would've enjoyed seeing Jim punch his father-in-law across the room. Both of the visiting parents were complete asses. I think my favorite bit of the episode was George's interaction with the officer after he got pulled over.

It makes one wonder just how many times george has had to say that to a officer.

Pretty good episode. I finally got caught up on this show. Interesting balance between family and being dark.

Wonder how it all plays out. Will be interesting.

The in laws were total dicks and I loved it when Jim let JJ kick Gramps's ass big time. A total cheer moment.
