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