Good in Patches,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Tomorrow People - The Complete Series [DVD] (DVD)
Some programmes you buy because you enjoyed them as a kid and want to relive your childhood. When you do this you can be delighted or disappointed. I'm inclined to feel that the Tomorrow People is more disappointing than delightful.
The plus points:
There are some pretty decent stories such as The Blue & the Green, The Vanishing Earth, etc.
The interview on the last disk is very entertaining.
The Negative Points:
There are some absolutely dire stories such as A Man for Emily.
The special effects are often very poor
The acting in the early stories is worse than amateurish
Some of the interesting facts are inaccurate & on a couple of the early disks, the picture alongside the Stephen character profile link is of Mike Holoway not Peter Vaughan Clarke
As a whole the early stories are probably better content-wise than the later ones, if you can ignore the acting. Symptomatic of the age, blue screen is overused and technically deficient in all the seasons. However, I think my children would enjoy watching these stories so I intend to give them the opportunity. For the money, the set is probably just about worth buying.
