Fandom, I'm asking you to do me a solid.

I'm guessing some of you are going to watch the Star-Crossed marathon tomorrow - don't lie, some of you are watching it - and the new episode at 8. Well, I'm asking you to not change the channel after that.

I'm asking you to give The Tomorrow People a chance.

It's kind of in a dead heat between Star-Crossed and The 100 to see which one is gonna get renewed for next season (which, not for nothing--pick up at least two, do 13-episode seasons like Sleepy Hollow, BOOM! Twice as many shows in a year. YOU'RE WELCOME), and I'd like it to be this one. I've gone into why before; it's a good show, it's getting better, it's finding its feet. It deserves a chance, and I'd like to give it one.

Do you need more reasons? Perfectly okay: Shirtless guys! Thoughtful science fiction! Mark Pellegrino has a steady job! Seriously, if you need a reason to give it a shot, you need look no further than that: Mark Pellegrino has a steady job. Mark Pellegrino, being allowed to develop a character that ISN'T Lucifer or Jacob from Lost.

Also? William Shatner really likes it. If you don't give it a chance for my sake, do it for Captain James T. Kirk. Or Denny Crane. Or because of WILLIAM FUCKING SHATNER. Do YOU want to make William Shatner mad? No. No you don't.

Fandom, work with me on this. You don't have to pay attention, if you don't want to; that's fine. Just--have it on. Tweet about it, so The CW knows you're watching. Go to a Nielsen family's house and commandeer their TiVo.

Tomorrow night, The CW. 9 PM EST. #TheTomorrowPeople.

(If nothing else, it might distract you from the shitshow that's bound to be the Teen Wolf season finale.)

Pimp Posts & You: The Tomorrow People 2013


I am incapable of being impartial about this; one of the first non-Star Trek things I was fannish about, waaaaay back in 1992 (SHUT UP OKAY I'M OLD) was the BBC Tomorrow People reboot, which was sort of dumb but also amazing? (And then the guys who did the Big Finish 1970s audio dramas retconned '92 away and said *those* Tomorrow People were crazy people who were all killed in a terrorist plot or something, which is just weaksauce, guys, for real.)

(Also, you should totes find the '92 version on YouTube, because in some ways it is terrible - it's marketed for young kids, for a start, kind of like old-school Who, but it features baby Naomie Harris with some super-sweet braids and CHRISTOPHER FUCKING LEE as THE PHAROAH RAMESES. Like, that happened. He has eyeliner and everything. It is worth it JUST FOR THAT.)

But yeah, The Tomorrow People: it's pretty great.
