Movie Reviews

Good fun

"The series continues with some of the most enjoyable episodes - fun with just the right amount of "camp" factor. I'm glad they have been producing the DVDs."

"Both incarnations of the show concerned the emergence of the next stage of human evolution who call themselves Tomorrow People. Born to human parents, an apparently normal child might at some point between childhood and late adolescence experience a process called "breaking out", when they develop their special abilities. These abilities include Psychic powers such as telepathy, telekinesis, and teleportation. However, they are physically unable to deliberately kill others.

[edit] Original series
The Tomorrow People operate out of a secret laboratory, The lab, built in an abandoned London Underground station. They watch for new Tomorrow People "breaking out" to help them through the process and sometimes deal with attention from extraterrestrial species. They deal with the "Galactic Federation" which oversees the wellfare of telepathic species throughout the galaxy. In addition to their psychic powers, they also use advanced technology such as the biological computer TIM, which is capable of original thought and can augment their psychic powers. TIM also helps the Tomorrow People to teleport long distances. Although they must be wearing a device installed into a belt or bracelet for this to work. Teleportation is also called jaunting in the show, presumably after the term used in the novel The Stars My Destination).

While they reveal their existence to some, they generally operate in secrecy for fear that normal people (whom they term "Saps", a pejorative abbreviation for Homo sapiens) will either fear or victimise them because of their special powers or try to exploit them for military purposes. In order to defend themselves they must use non-lethal weaponry such as "stun guns" or martial arts throws due to their inability to cause harm, referred to as the "prime barrier"."
