Critic Reviews for The Tomorrow People: Season 1

All Critics (40) | Top Critics (22) | Fresh (18) | Rotten (22)

The show feels trapped in the past, a slave to the conventions of the '70s British series on which it's based, and to a slew of modern genre clichés.

Full Review… | November 11, 2013
Slant Magazine
Top Critic

The show can do cases of the week from multiple perspectives, and it has an inherent tension of the "inside man" that provides an overarching plot across the whole season.

Full Review… | November 1, 2013
AV Club

The Tomorrow People can stand well enough on its own and has a good chance of becoming as popular as Arrow.

Full Review… | October 29, 2013
San Francisco Chronicle

Violent sci-fi series raises discussion points for teens.

Full Review… | October 15, 2013
Common Sense Media

The Tomorrow People could represent the next step in The CW's evolution, so long as it's allowed to utilize all the latent potential on display in this first episode.

Full Review… | October 14, 2013
AV Club

The atmosphere is bland, the special effects and fight scenes are underwhelming, and the tone is mostly humorless.

Full Review… | October 11, 2013
Boston Globe

Although The Tomorrow People may be a Frankenstein of sorts, it still has all the appeal of any one of its parts.

Full Review… | October 10, 2013
We Got This Covered

I would say that The Tomorrow People is well on its way to becoming an interesting, layered story.

Full Review… | October 10, 2013
TV Equals
Top Critic

The humorous opener is loaded with talky exposition so it is hard to see it enhancing the CW brand.

Full Review… | October 10, 2013
Buffalo News

The Tomorrow People's pilot acquits itself well. It's pleasant to watch, and not just because the people are so pretty. It also delivers some decent intrigue.

Television Without Pity
Top Critic

I found the first episode of this new series extremely entertaining and it managed to give me a few surprises. Plus, there was the eye candy, of course. That's a formula for a winning series if I ever saw one, at least for me.

Full Review… | October 10, 2013
TV Fanatic
Top Critic

They managed to cook up a fairly compelling little show with some great action sequences, and that ended on the right kind of unexpected cliffhanger that has at least one viewer (that would be me) curious to see what happens.

Full Review… | October 10, 2013
Paste Magazine

The Tomorrow People uses seamless effects to show teleportation in a way that furthers the story along without being clunky or overzealous.

[The Tomorrow People] if you're a connoisseur of teenage grandiosity and paranoia, is not a bad show.

Full Review… | October 9, 2013
Miami Herald

Although predictable in predictable ways, there are enough twists and turns and, relatively speaking, complexities of character to keep things interesting, and a pivot at the end that I did not see coming. Which bodes well.

Full Review… | October 9, 2013
Los Angeles Times

[It] is completely bogged down with rushed exposition, stale acting, and pointless action scenes that leave not much to look forward to.

Full Review… | October 9, 2013
Under the Radar

There's enough set in motion here to perhaps lure a small, loyal audience from week to week.

Full Review… | October 9, 2013
Uncle Barky

The Tomorrow People, we learn in an endless prattle of exposition...specializes in the "three T's": teleportation, telepathy, telekinesis. They forgot "tired," "tepid" and "too too derivative," which better describes the experience of meeting these kids.

Full Review… | October 9, 2013
TV Guide

The pilot is a pretty shameless rip-off of The Matrix, but without the intriguing virtual reality component.

Full Review… | October 9, 2013
Slate

It's not a critique of society and it's not a heroic quest that's internal truth transcends circumstance. It's just grouchy people running around.

Full Review… | October 9, 2013
New York Magazine/Vulture

Even though the fate of the world is presumably at stake, as tends to be the case in these fantasies, this one just doesn't feel very rousing.

Full Review… | October 9, 2013
New York Daily News

There's enough here to have me interested in watching more, and hoping things become more unpredictable.

Full Review… | October 9, 2013
IGN Movies

The Tomorrow People pilot apes every touchstone of sci-fi cool.

Full Review… | October 9, 2013
Newsday

With age abhors beauty at the core of the thing, right now The Tomorrow People seems more superficial than superhuman.

Full Review… | October 9, 2013
Salon.com

This reboot is OK. It has possibilities. It also has problems.

Full Review… | October 9, 2013
Salt Lake Tribune

The results are just kind of meh.

Pittsburgh Post-Gazette
Top Critic

I never saw the '70s original. But there's nothing in the pilot that feels particularly like today, much less like tomorrow.

Full Review… | October 9, 2013
Philadelphia Daily News

With great powers comes crater-sized plot holes.

Full Review… | October 9, 2013
Boston Herald

What it lacks, at this point, is any kick in its storytelling: There are alienation, daddy issues and a looming love triangle, but they're all pro forma.

Full Review… | October 9, 2013
New York Times

So while The Tomorrow People isn't groundbreaking sci-fi, it's a fun romp with quality CGI that won't make you groan each time someone uses one of the three Ts (teleportation, telekinesis, telepathy).

Full Review… | October 8, 2013
TV Guide

Despite its title, The Tomorrow People is yesterday's news.

Full Review… | October 8, 2013
Media Life

There's no humor or sense of enjoyment in this world and it drags everything down.

Full Review… | October 8, 2013
Time Out Chicago

[Greg Berlanti] gives The Tomorrow People more actual dramatic substance and even a dash of sophistication - qualities you don't always associate with CW shows.

Full Review… | October 8, 2013
Hearst Newspapers

It has a stupid title and a stupid premise and, among its many transgressions against watchable entertainment, it really doesn't make much sense (you know, on top of the acting and the writing and whatnot).

Full Review… | October 8, 2013
Hollywood Reporter

Tomorrow People simply feels too much like a knockoff of more familiar genetic superhumans.

Full Review… | October 8, 2013
Variety

Indifferently acted and badly plotted, Tomorrow cries out to be ignored.

Full Review… | October 8, 2013
USA Today

It's going to have to significantly broaden the scope of the story and the size of the cast if it hopes to succeed as an episodic.

Full Review… | October 8, 2013
Philadelphia Inquirer

You've got a heady brew of action, sci-fi and vision quest. It's also fun.

Full Review… | October 8, 2013
Associated Press

It offers little in the way of thrills, suspense or drama.

Full Review… | October 4, 2013
New York Post
Top Critic

Sounds confusing, but it's actually too simple - based on a British show, but derivative of sci-fi and superhuman dramas we've seen plenty of times before, up to and including the slo-mo Matrix bullets flying out of a gun.
