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 clichs.

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.
October 15, 2013
Violent sci-fi series raises discussion points for teens.

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.

October 11, 2013
The atmosphere is bland, the special effects and fight scenes are underwhelming, and the tone is mostly humorless.
October 10, 2013
Although The Tomorrow People may be a Frankenstein of sorts, it still has all the appeal of any one of its parts.
Full Review | Original Score: 7/10

I would say that The Tomorrow People is well on its way to becoming an interesting, layered story.
October 10, 2013
The humorous opener is loaded with talky exposition so it is hard to see it enhancing the CW brand.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4

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.

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.

October 10, 2013
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.

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.
October 9, 2013
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.
October 9, 2013
[It] is completely bogged down with rushed exposition, stale acting, and pointless action scenes that leave not much to look forward to.

There's enough set in motion here to perhaps lure a small, loyal audience from week to week.
October 9, 2013
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.
October 9, 2013
The pilot is a pretty shameless rip-off of The Matrix, but without the intriguing virtual reality component.
October 9, 2013
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.
