5.0 out of 5 stars Old Favorite November 8, 2009
Verified Purchase
I remember watching this show on Nickelodeon when I was a little kid. I mean, I have vivid memories of several of the episodes. It took a very long time to come out on DVD, but I'm thrilled it has! The hair and clothes are all very dated, and the acting is over-the-top melodramatic. Feels more like you're watching a play that someone videotaped rather than a TV show, but it is still fun. For science-fiction fans, this is a not to be missed piece of campy, sometimes heavy-handed sci-fi TV history.

4.0 out of 5 stars A MUST FOR SciFi FANS September 15, 2007
By asugar2
Both incarnations of the show concerned the emergence of the next stage of human evolution who call themselves Tomorrow People. Born to human parents, an apparently normal child might at some point between childhood and late adolescence experience a process called "breaking out", when they develop their special abilities. These abilities include Psychic powers such as telepathy, telekinesis, and teleportation. However, they are physically unable to deliberately kill others.

[edit] Original series
The Tomorrow People operate out of a secret laboratory, The lab, built in an abandoned London Underground station. They watch for new Tomorrow People "breaking out" to help them through the process and sometimes deal with attention from extraterrestrial species. They deal with the "Galactic Federation" which oversees the wellfare of telepathic species throughout the galaxy. In addition to their psychic powers, they also use advanced technology such as the biological computer TIM, which is capable of original thought and can augment their psychic powers. TIM also helps the Tomorrow People to teleport long distances. Although they must be wearing a device installed into a belt or bracelet for this to work. Teleportation is also called jaunting in the show, presumably after the term used in the novel The Stars My Destination).

While they reveal their existence to some, they generally operate in secrecy for fear that normal people (whom they term "Saps", a pejorative abbreviation for Homo sapiens) will either fear or victimise them because of their special powers or try to exploit them for military purposes. In order to defend themselves they must use non-lethal weaponry such as "stun guns" or martial arts throws due to their inability to cause harm, referred to as the "prime barrier".

The stories are particularly bad in this group and have weak plots and some really poor dialog. The special effects are very primitive even for the mid 70's, and the costumes are laughable. This show has not aged well, and only the most hard core TP fans will want to see these.

1.0 out of 5 stars Memory is dodgy April 21, 2013
Verified Purchase
I watched these as a kid & loved them BUT as an adult I hated them. OK, I only hated set 3. Set 2 & set 1 were OK but the last couple of seasons were terrible. The acting was awful: stodgy beyond belief. The script was unimaginative. Wow, one of those things from childhood, that didn't stand the test of time.
