The New Disney+ show Extraordinary is currently sitting at a perfect 100 percent Rotten Tomatoes score following its release on the streaming platform.
The eight-part series follows 25-year-old Jen who is an ordinary person in a world where everyone develops superpowers on their 18th birthday aside from her.
In Extraordinary, the range of superpowers present are varied, with one changing hair colour with a snap, and another with the more traditional superpower in turning back time.
But poor Jen has nothing like that to boast about, but will all that change in Extraordinary?
The official synopsis reads: "Adrift in a big, confusing world and armed with nothing but a bit of hope, a lot of desperation and her flatmates, Jen begins her journey to find her maybe-superpower."
The superhero series is written by Emma Moran and the Killing Eve producer Sid Gentle.
Sally Woodward Gentle, Lee Morris and Charles Dawson are also on board as executive producers.
Up-and-coming actor Máiréad Tyers leads the cast, which also includes Sofia Oxenham, Bilal Hasna, Luke Rollason, Siobhán McSweeney and Patricia Allison.
All eight-parts of Extraordinary are available to watch now, with fans and critics loving it so far.
Currently, Extraordinary sits at a perfect 100 percent critic score on Rotten Tomatoes, while the audience scores also sits at a highly impressive 93 percent.
The 100 percent score is calculated from 13 reviews on the popular review aggregation site.
Obviously, Extraordinary has only be out for a very short while, and new reviews scores from outlets will come in.
This could lower Extraordinary's perfect score, but it is a great start for the brand new show nonetheless.
Critics are loving the series, including John Anderson at the Wall Street Journal, he said: "Quite the unusual thing -- a sci-fi-inflected coming-of-age story and a sitcom that’s actually funny."
Meanwhile, Keith Watson at Metro said: "It stands out from the crowd compared to other superpower shows..."
Disney+ subscribers are equally impressed by the show, with some taking to social media to praise it.
One person on Twitter said: "Extraordinary on Disney plus is great.
"Everyone has superpowers except the protagonist and its ENGLISH so you know it's going to be the right level of dumb."
A second added: "If you’re looking for something to watch this weekend, I recommend Extraordinary on Disney+"
And a third said: "If you're looking for a fun time on the TV this weekend, I cannot recommend "#Extraordinary on Disney+ highly enough. It's like if Derry Girls was a superhero show."
