This shows reminds me a bit of Heroes, but even more it
reminds me of Syfy's Alphas. A teenager has some strange
things happen to him, but he founds out that he is part of
an evolved race of beings with special powers. Also, someone
is hunting them. It's not as good as Alphas, but also not as
dark and drab as Alphas could be. It's definitely more
colorful and cool, and it has more action.
The show is based on a successful British show that ran
from 1973-1979. It was revived again and ran 1992-1995. I
haven't seen those shows, so I can't tell you if they are
the same or not, but from what I've read on Wikipedia, they
are very similar.
I'm not sure if I like the lead actor or not, Robbie
Amell, who plays Stephen. I don't think he's the best actor.
Looks-wise, he reminds me a bit of Colin Egglesfield
("Rizzoli & Isles" and "The Client List"), but he's not as
handsome as Colin. He kind of grows on you a bit as the show
goes along. I really like the other actors on the show,
especially Peyton List,
who plays Cara. You may recognize her from "Mad Men" or "FlashForward",
among many other things. She is very well known as Lucy from
As the World Turns. Aaron Yoo plays another young guy,
Russell; and Luke Mitchell plays John. The bad guy in
charge of hunting them down, Jedediah, is played gleefully
by Mark Pellegrino, who has played baddies for quite a whole
on shows like "Revolution", "Being Human" and
"Supernatural". It's good to see both Peyton List and Mark
Pellegrino getting well-deserved starring roles. There
is a great surprise about Jedediah during the pilot that
makes you go, "Oh, shit!"
I enjoyed the story a lot and I can't wait to see more! I
love any superhero type of show, anyway, but this one is

I don't want to say more, for fear of too many spoilers.
It's a very interesting episode, especially what happens at
the end of the show between Steven and Peter.
I really love Mark Pellegrino - he's always a wonderful
villain. They've given his characters a lot of layers on
this show. He's evil and yet he's not as evil as The Founder
in some ways. He's very likable and sympathetic, even though
he's also evil and very screwed up!
This show is not perfect by any means, but it's very
enjoyable and the cast is fabulous. Make sure to tune
