  • Can you say Alpha’s rip off CW, that was a solid show although I will give this a chance I’m still not convinced it will live passed the story lines already done in shows like Heroes and Alpha’s….

    • Well, this is based on the original 1970s show of the same name. (there was also another 90s version)

    • Using this logic, every superhero show is a ripoff of the original Superman comic. Sheesh…

  • So wait…does each character have all 3 abilities instead of one or the other? if so, that’s pretty cool.

  • eXtraordianry! Uncanny even! eXceptional! X-Men!…Oops, I mean, Exceptional! But yeah, the Tomorrow People definitely copied X-Men as they were getting big….So for all the “this is a rip-off of Heroes and Alphas…” let’s respect the OG here…They’re ripping off X-Men(government agents! Feared! Tomorrow people! Uncanny teenagers!!!)

  • I’m really looking forward to it but it does seem to be “borrowing” a lot from X-Men.

  • I really enjoyed the original series on the BBC when I was young, I think this looks like it has real promise. And NO people, it’s not a ripoff of Alphas, Heroes, or X-men, it’s based on the original BBC show.

    • Which was a rip-off of X-Men haha…X-Men predates the original show by a decade and X-men was very popular in the 70′s.

      • If you’ve ever seen the original, it had very little in common with the X-Men, other than being about teens with (identical, not different) superpowers. It had more of a science fiction than comics tone.

        • So only the new series is copying X-Men? Even their new poster says “Different is dangerous”…which is a big theme in X-Men. Teens having super powers doesn’t equal X-Men. It’s the whole “We’re different so we’re feared” “we’re the next evolution so some fear us and hate us, while some of our think we’re “the rightful heirs” to the world”…

    • Glen, it was actually an itv show.

  • Who cares where the ideas are from; the real concern is weather they can balance a great story with the mandatory relationship malarkey, like in Arrow, or will it turn out like soo many of their ‘other’ shows.

  • The promo looks great. Time will tell if the show is just a good.
