I remember reading an article by V about this show. From her first impression I wasn’t really looking forward to the show, but I got bored the other day and decided to give it a shot.
The Tomorrow People started off a little slow. I think the main protagonist is too old to still be in high school. This dude looks like he’s in his twenties and you expect me to believe that he’s what… a senior? That ain’t happening. I’m glad that the show didn’t focus too much on Stephen and his school life.
So far this show really does remind me of X-men. In X-men you always had the mutants vs humans. Mutants just want to be left alone and accepted in society, but the humans extremist won’t leave them alone. Instead they want to lock them all up or kill them in the streets.
In The Tomorrow People you’ve got people with special abilities hiding away from human extremist because if they’re caught using their powers, or are even suspected of it, than they’ll either get killed, or have their powers taken away and forced to be a regular human again.
The only difference between this and X-men is that the X-men could murder these guys with one hand tied behind their backs. I wish everyone would have had different powers, but I’m pretty sure that if they did I would be here saying that this is a blatant copy of X-men.
The action in The Tomorrow People is decent. On some episodes it’s bad and others it’s really good. I like seeing everyone teleport around the room while kicking some secret agent M.I.B wannabee ass.
The acting for the most part is pretty good. I love Mark Pellegrino as Dr. Jedikiah Price. He’s ruthless, but I can understand his reasons for wanting to control The Tomorrow People. Some of them are actually really bad people. Does Jedikiah go too far some times? Yes, but that just adds to his charm.
It’s too bad that this show was cancelled. I think it has potential, but it’ll sadly never realize it unless another network or Netflix wants to save it.
If I had to slap a score on this show it’d be a solid 6 right now, but I’m no near done with the season and I’m hoping that this show will get a lot better as it progresses.
