Though the literal lifestyle of some of the characters is not something I'd replicate, I think the show has great hearts behind the characters. Great values such as protecting your family and friends. And it showed things like that even "villains" can have a sympathetic side, which I love because in real life there is no such thing as good guys and bad guys; everyone has both issues and good qualities. In the show, sometimes you never always knew who the real bad guy was. Overall, great "breaking out" super-power story plot with pretty good special effects for a storyline of this type. I wish they had a season 2!
