It is not Marvel comics.
27 February 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The last five minutes with Claire and Mr Bennet were really moving, I thought. Mr Bennet is only human to love his adopted child like his own. And Claire is only human to love and hate her known father. It was sad, though, I hope the end of the series would bring them back together as father and daughter. Most of the flashbacks were interesting too as it started to connect everyone. What makes this show so addicting is that the people are so ordinary but so special and it shows both aspects equally. It is not Marvel comics. After each show, it makes you want to believe that there are everyday people with special abilities indeed yet they are more human and are not immortals. Great show. Looking forward for more.
