    I caught a few episodes of The Tomorrow People many years ago and I greatly enjoyed it. I would like to see it revived ala Doctor Who but I have my doubts with the CW. It may be a hit or just a big failure. I'm just glad that they are straying away from vampires.

Eventually everyone on a planet is born a Tomorrow Person. (genetic throwbacks exist, but are a rarity).
    Main limitation of Tomorrow People, in addition to the fact that the oldest is only about 20, is that they cannot kill. Psychological limitation.
    The computer also controls their teleporter/transporter.

    It was one BBC channels attempt to counter another BBC channel's Doctor Who. The first season's ridiculously clunky belts are later replaced with much better, more subtle version.

    I got to thinking about the remake/reboot and the how should the the teleportation be shown? should the homo-superiors stand while jaunting or should they do more action based teleporting like in Jumper or Nightcrawler in Last Stand? Also should they still be pacifists or have some martial arts style they does not do much harm to their opponents? What do you think?

    Looks like a hair gel advertisement.

    My sarcasm detector is fusion powered. Yeah, that's powerful enough.

    I saw an article saying TP looked like it was "a take on Heroes where young people discover they have powers". Not a well-researched article.
