Awesome. Had no idea this was coming back.
Now if they'd just remake Into the Labyrinth I'll be happy.
Another old sci-fi show making a return in a new form. Doesn't look half bad. Has Lucifer from Supernatural as the bad guy

the title sounds like something from The Langoliers
Same producer as Arrow, so hopefully it's as good as that show. But they're teenagers, so we will probably get lots of angst and teen relationship drama. Not to mention the whole "reluctant hero" shit from the trailer, made me want to vomit. It's just been used way too many times, I'm tired of some random fuck getting awesome powers and then whining incessantly for several episodes. Other than that, looks pretty good. The original was one of my fave shows back in the day, so I'll definitely give it a shot.
This might be alright... if it was a mini series but since that never seems to happen in the US it will probably end up being a whiny/angsty drudge over the course of 10+ episodes before anything interesting happens.
Ill give it a chance too, but if its really whiny I will bail
Wasn't there a show like this on nickelodeon years back? (15-20) ?
They have rebooted Tomorrow People a couple of times. The one you are thinking of was from the 90s. This will be the first big budget and sexed up version so it will be interesting to see what Brit purists think of it
This actually looks interesting! But then, so did Heroes...
Just ran into a promo for this, glad thread already exists.
Premieres: Wednesday, Oct. 9
Same as vid from OP, just better quality

Loved this show on Nickelodeon, late 90s

I thought it was not actually all that bad. i'll continue to watch to see, but i'm a sucker for any super human type shows.
Pretty decent. Stays true to the original material but nicely updated with a bit more tension. The ending wasn't what I was expecting coming into the whole thing, but Lucifer as a main character is a welcome sight. Funny that the CW gets to have an X-men mutant angst show paired with Arrow when Disney/Marvel can't touch the topic without running afoul of their tangled web of IP.
Having an Amell family 2 hour block is amusing as hell.
To my shame I've heard of but never watched the original, watched this and enjoyed it. The "twist" at the end gave me a much more favourable outlook on the show going forward. The on-the-run from the evil oppressors trope is so overdone.
His cousin can deffo kick his arse though!
Will Nina from 24 turn out to be a mole?
I liked it, will continue to watch. I love Kara's (hope that's her name) eyes. Well, and the rest of her of course, but the eyes in particular.
My favorite part was that they pretty much got all of the origin story and motivation covered in the first episode. I know there will be reveals about his dad, other characters, etc. later on, but all the typical angst over not knowing what is going on, finding out he has powers, finding out about his dad, blah blah is already done.
They certainly dumped a ton of information, almost too much. Seemed like an explanation show, but probably good that it's done and out of the way. great twist with how it ended, though still feels a little false, but interested in how it plays out.
Worried about the usual problems that will crop up. Here are a bunch of people with various super powers, but funnily enough it ends up in fisticuffs so regularly. They did do some effort at showing the integration of the powers, but I have a feeling there will be many annoying moments of seeing the lack of using their powers appropriately.
Still, good enough to keep watching.
Interesting enough to make me watch a couple more. I don't think you can ask for much more from a pilot really.
thing that slightly bothered me, they explained everything to us, but dude didn't ask any questions
sadly going to guess their powers will only be defined by what the plot calls for. their porting ability already seems godlike compared to other examples i can think of.
The thing I liked about this show is that in a way, you can understand both sides of the fight. Kids/teenagers suddenly finding out they can teleport/use telekinesis would be a very big danger to society if they were not properly educated about when to and not to use their power. I was a bit surprised about the apparent number of potentials. Seems a little bit high and uncontrollable for both sides if that map were a true indication. I assume "the man" has many branches throughout the world? This begs the question as to who is actually in control of the hunt and destroy/control campaign. Maybe they go all Star Wars and you find out that the Dad was converted to the dark side and thus was "Killed". Should be interesting as this is pretty much an X-men kind of story.
The "Unable to kill" is an interesting control element for the story...
rewatched the scene with the map and he says "so many outbreaks....all over the world", but pretty sure the map was just some eye candy and not really showing them
the map (anyone know what program that is, lol) is the Earth at Night series from Nasa and it is cycling through so at one point japan is nearly all white then it goes nearly dark
yea if that map were a true representation of the "outbreak" then there is no way normal people would not know at this point.. that's a HUGE amount of white on that map.
Yeah, the unuse of power is going to really shit me.
Hey lets have a chase where we'll use out teleportation power to go throw a wall and appear on the otherside, rather than anywhere else in the city, country world that would instantly make you safe.
Here's something that will stop them reading your mind, but it won't be sus at all that all of a sudden you're a blank where before they could pick up on things. etc etc
Well at least they arent using sloppy crutches. When the watch showed up I groaned, but then Lucifer snatched that puppy away right quick. That having been said I fully expect that he will end up working for Steven's father who is using ULTRA and the hunt for the Tomorrow People as cannon fodder for the authorities to distract them from some sort of Utopia. We are already seeing that the father is more than willing to use people in his quest for the 'bigger picture'
Yeah, the inability to kill is pretty retarded (can't remember if it was in the original series), and we're only in the second episode and they've already bent/broke that rule. Also, they haven't really explained the limitations of the teleportation. In the old show their range was pretty short but they had belts/bracelets that gave them a major boost.

They cannot directly kill but I don't think it really stops them from say having somebody walk out into the street or even potentially walking off a roof you are just telling them to walk straight so that is what they do and at the point you tell them to do it its not directly fatal.
Well that got real shit. Real quick. I was rolling my eyes *hard* throughout that whole episode. Disbelief got suspended real quick, the family sub-plot is cliche-ridden, the 'conflict' over the hot chick too teen drama and the fact that the baddy knows just way too obvious.
I will give this a few more episodes but it better get a lot better soon.
Jedikiah is the best part of this series so far. Awesome actor and his motivations are much more complex than your usual villain. The sheer level of pride you could see when he was talking to John in the car was quite evident. Despite everything else he is pleased with what John has become, to the extent that it seems certain that his actual motivations are quite a bit different from what he reports to whoever his superior is.
Only actor I like is john and his dad. Jedikihah? Episode 4 was the only good episode. Main actor can't hold the show like his cousin

Show is ok for me, despite a few glaring flaws. Like the fact that this dude they just made normal can still have his mind read by ULTRA and give away the location of their hideout. But all of that aside, I will keep watching if Cara keeps looking hot as fuck. I couldn't find a better picture, but in this dress tonight...wow.
That reveal finally makes sense except the camera incident during the hike. Unless she was stalking them. The brother seemed to young for a breakout considering it just happened to Steven.
This show is definitely growing on me. There's plenty of stupid shit still, but overall it is entertaining, and Cara is hot as fuck. I've suspected this reveal for awhile now, but nice to finally see it.
The thing I like most about it though, is that it is already downloaded by freaking 4pm here! Some Canadian station must play it early as fuck for it to be available that soon.
I knew that steven's mom had to be a tom person as well, since he could stop time. They really kinda gave that away when they said synergistic or what ever term they used to explain more powerful than usual break outs.
Hopefully they go Luke and Leia and it gets revealed after they have some special quality time together.
Yeah, it's usually up for torrents when I get home at 7ish so that makes for an early download. I'm surprised by how much I'm enjoying the series.
Buffy meets Heroes, nothing to see there.
I can pretty much find something good in anything, but I could not make it through the first episode.
Well CW announced renewals for Arrow, Supernatural etc. including two of their new series but NOT the Tomorrow People. Now this doesn't mean the show is toast, but it does not look good. They also completely abandoned the "Amellsday" promotion idea right from the start indicating they don't have much faith in this show and don't want its cooties touching Arrow.
Did anyone stick with this show? with all the talk about it not getting renewed, figured i would wait till it to see if it was worth watching.

I watched it, and thought it got halfway decent towards the end. I was a little disappointed with the way they left it open for another season. As in, the actual storyline, not the fact they left it open. I don't like the twists and turns they made Jedechiah (sp) go through to end up where he was at the closing scene. It was like they specifically decided that he has to be the bad guy again. Other than that, I was ok with the entire season, and the hot chicks (Cara in particular) are always a bonus.
Not surprising after the last few episodes. They really dropped what little ball they had. And having such a weak lead actor didn't help.
The only thing I'll miss is Cara.
I do find it hard to believe they cancelled this and kept The 100 though.
I would have kept watching The Tomorrow People if it got renewed, but I am not surprised it got canceled either.
