This is the complete series from the 70's and NOT the 1995 version. The video quality is great and the last season includes a wonderful documentary about the series and several updated cast interviews. Even though the special effects are bit simplistic the overall stories are still relevant and enjoyable by young and old alike.

The original UK series Now seeing it's third reenvisioning on the CW, the cheesy if amazingly original series by Roger Damon Price (responsible for 90's reboot and screenplay for the upcoming 2013 edition) was replayed on Nickelodeon during the formative years of cable tv and hooked me from the first ep. In a walking embodiment of a Bowie (and Ziggy Marley song) the next stage of human development of Homo Saipan into Homo Superior begins with a group of Teens and Tweens who have the gifts of the 3 T's "Teleportation, Telekinesis and Telepathy" but they must remain in secret because of the prejudice and fear from the "Saps" (a slang for the normals which hardly distinguishes our heroes as taking the high moral road). They also became targets of government experiments and even fend off an alien invasion or three. Like Professor X they spent their time, when not on the run, looking for new "Tomorrow People" . A guilty pleasure, but unquestionably a pleasure (warning- this set will only play on Region Free or Region 2 DVD players)

I was actually looking for the new series and believed to have found it.
Comparing it to the new US series, it is kindergarden plays.
I will dispose of the entire set.
