The CW isn't my usual viewing choice. Yes, I do record "Hart of Dixie" which my wife and I watch in the Summer because it's silly, light, and airs some great music we don't hear elsewhere. But for the most part their shows lack depth.
I am curious about "Tomorrow People" because Executive Producer Phil Klemmer said in in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter:
I hope people are engaged on two levels. I hope it's exciting and action-packed. It's science fiction that I don't think you get to see on TV, or certainly not on network television. What I like about it is that it is something you can enjoy as hardcore sci-fi and an emotionally raw, honest coming-of-age story.
My first reaction when I read descriptions of it is to let it slide. Most descriptions read like this one:
Genetically enhanced humans vs. the government. It's one of the oldest sci-fi clichés in the book. But The CW's Tomorrow People, a reboot of the '70s cult classic, never feels dated. There are definite retro nods — such as their A.I. computer sidekick, TiM — but it has enough twists (and sexy, implausibly high school characters) to fit in perfectly alongside other CW teen fare.
The actual Tomorrow People are a group of very attractive, lippy young adults who are blessed -- or cursed, depending on whose side you're on — with superpowers. Without anyone to tell him differently, Stephen (Robbie Amell) understandably begins to think he's gone crazy when he hears a voice in his head and begins waking up in his neighbor's bed.
Teen angst over having special powers is a "thing" on The CW, but I still remember "Roswell" on the now defunct UPN which IMHO was scifi very well done. One can always hope.
