|“The Incredibles” from Pixar|
superpowers have been on my mind a bit lately … and not because sometimes i feel i need a boost in my abilities just to get through the day. last week, abc debuted a show called “no ordinary family” about a family whose members become “super” after their plane crashes into the amazon river. dad gains super strength, mom gets super speed, sister becomes telephatic and little bro becomes a genius. it’s kinda like a live-action “the incredibles” (love that movie!). i found the pilot so-so but i’m gonna stick around for a bit since it was created by one of my favorite writer/producers, greg berlanti (he wrote and produced “everwood“).
also, i’m reading “reflex,” the sequel to “jumper” by steven gould (a movie starring the guy from the sucky “star wars” prequels was made about 3-4 years ago). it’s about folks who can teleport.
so, what power would you like? let’s be selfish here (no humanitarian reasons): i’d like to be able to teleport. can you imagine how much traveling i’d be able to do? no need to book hotels, do the guided tours, etc. 🙂 plus, pretty handy power for getting out of trouble 😛
