Review: The Tomorrow People

By: Alex Hill (CBS 62/CW50 Intern)

The new CW show, The Tomorrow People, is going to be amazing. The series is based off of the original British series, The Tomorrow People. It will take viewers on a journey with Stephen Jameson (Robbie Amell), main character, of finding himself. He is a high school student with a sleeping disorder. You will learn the cause of his disorder. I love the way that the writers correlated Sci-Fi into such an adventurous plot.

The story line is incredible and shows how the young people find a way to deal with their special internal issue. However, I feel that the first sleeping disorder incident was a little much because Stephen ended up in bed with a married couple. The issues are a result of human evolution. There is a battle between two different groups and Stephen plays an important role within the conflict.

I believe this show is going to be permanently marked on my calendar. My eyes were glued to the screen. The acting and graphics are both brilliant. The episodes will definitely leave you in suspense and wanting more. I am slightly nervous because I feel the first episode moved rather swiftly. In terms of, don’t want the show to seem as though the writers are just throwing anything together. I do believe teenagers will appreciate the incorporation of powers and the sense of finding oneself in the midst of friends and family opinions. However, I do not know if this show will draw much attention from young girls.

The series address sacrifice, truth, friendship and other themes. Ultimately, the series promotes following your heart in a very creative way.
