These shows were campy, yet wonderful in the fact that they did not treat children like idiots who only liked to see people covered in green slime (I always hated those Nick shows). Oh, who can forget the epsiodes with the "Bubble skin Jump Suits"?
I believe most of the episodes I discussed come later, but the Tomorrow People certainly is quite unique. I always wanted to live in the lab! I never liked the new lab much, though.This show is so worth it. My [...] niece loves it!
I don't know how one would feel watching this for the first time, but then again I don't know why someone would seek this out except from a nostalgic stand point.
Expect nothing and you'll never be disappointed.
So what can I say? The good stories have terrible moments, and the poor stories have superb moments. If you want polished, this isn't it. But if you're looking for raw, on-the-edge sci-fi that explores what it is to be human - this is brilliant and is without equal, warts and all.
Yes, but who are these "Tomorrow People" and what are the stories on the DVD? It's hard to answer the first without providing some sort of spoiler. Suffice to say, they are the main characters in the story. The stories themselves are mostly quests, though there are some escape stories and a few that defy any standard label. Enough is spelled out that the viewer does not need to put in much thought, but it is intellectual in its own way. Don't expect top-class High Speculative Fiction. This is somewhere between Science Fiction and Science Fantasy, and is most definitely "mid-range" in terms of intelligence vs. action.
Who would this be good for? Definitely old-time sf fans, anyone who likes highly unusual television and anyone who likes sf but doesn't like High Adventure. I would also say budding script writers and students in media arts would find it valuable, as it contains many experimental concepts.
I found the series enjoyable but a little campy. There is also a couple of points where the characters take actions which arguably are inconsistant with a prohibition on killing (like sabotaging a spacehip).
However, if you grew up watching them as I did, then this is a serious trip down nostalgia lane.
I seem to recall there being more episodes than this, but apparently, the episodes being spread out one 30-minute episode a week ... well, it seemed like there were more than 3 seasons worth.
5-stars for anyone who has fond memories of this show... for anyone else, this is probably too cheezy to recommend

Featuring low production values and cheesy effects, the Tomorrow People is a good way to lose part of your life. But, it's oh so fun to watch. Read morePublished on December 23, 2009 by Harmless Gryphon
