The Tomorrow People: Season 1 (2013-2014)



Critic Consensus: A reboot of the 1970s cult series, The Tomorrow People suffers from a middling plot that feels cobbled together from better sci-fi dramas.

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

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

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

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