Coinkydink Or Coinkydonk? No Ordinary Cast

I don't think that house-shaped "A" made the final cut. Also... is this really an effective opening image? It makes me think someone jumped out the window.

The jury’s still out on ABC’s new superhero drama(?) No Ordinary Family, but despite my borderline indifference towards it, I’m still regularly watching it.  To me, executive producer Greg Berlanti knows as much about superheroes as Heroes’ executive producer Tim Kring did (I’ve ranted about him once before).

Let’s take a quick peak at their hist-heroes:

Tim Kring

  • Chicago Hope
  • Providence
  • Crossing Jordan

Greg Berlanti

  • Dawson’s Creek
  • Jack & Bobby
  • Everwood
  • Dirty Sexy Money
  • Eli Stone
  • Brothers & Sisters

Sure, Berlanti is producing next summer’s Green Lantern movie, but an expert that does not him make (did that sentence sense make?)… But that’s neither hero nor there-o in regard to what this post is actually about.  What I’ve noticed is that the cast is composed mostly of cable show ex-pats.  To begin…
