    Lame Powers are Lame. Unless Invisi-Lad gets force field powers anyway.
    Also, Time Travel? = Hey it's Hiro Nakmura from Heroes?

    Very overpowered.

    Meh, I'm gonna watch it, E4 has al ot of shows that have a horrible sounding premise, but somehow end up being brilliant, especially when it comes to there "teen" shows.

    Quiet you, I'm blaming your view on your age. :p

    I just saw the first episode and I'm interested enough to tune in again next week. My only point about the first episode is that it would have been better if it hadn't so much time (the entire first half) letting the characters discover their powers. That being said the second half was a big improvement.

    Good first episode the skinny Northern Irish Shi Lebouef look alike stole the show for me he had the best lines.

    Reminded me of deadset or 28 days later it was quite gory and almost scary at times. I'm willing to give this show a chance.

    You see I was doing a good job of forgetting that scene, I chose to remember the topless scene just before that and all is well in the world :cwink:

    At first I thoguht it was going to be 'Skins with superpowers' which I wasn't really into the idea of but I watched the first ep and I'm liking the show. I like that it's a bit 'offbeat' and is trying to do something different with the genre. Nathan is funny.

    I wonder what Nathans power will be or if he even got one.. I'm kinda expecting it to be something big now that it's taking so long to discover. I wondered if it might be something to with words, like making people beleive what you say... 'cos all the others powers are based on their characters/traits -
    Kelly can hear others thoughts 'cos even though she's hard edged she wonders what people really think of her, Simon can turn invisible 'cos he is a loner, Alishas power is obviously 'cos she's a party girl and Curtis can turn back time 'cos deep down he wishes to change his past.

    I missed episode 2 but episode 3 was alright and ep4 looks interesting.

    I think the wolf following Nathan in the credits is supposed to be his step-dad with the whole Jack Russell Terrier thing. If Nathan does have some power I don't really think it'll be anything impressive, the character is too comedic, for anything powerful.

    I love Nathan the guys hilarious loved his Bono impression and when Simon asked if he wanted to go to the pub with him and he said 'I'm not your Ho'.

    Any show using the Rapture is cool with me.

    Alisha looks like see might be turning into the X-Men's Rogue (with her powers making anyone who touch her into a would be rapist).

    Yeah that was my theory too, but i couldnt think what Nathans power could be, but what you said makes a lot of sense.

    Wiki says:

    Title sequence

    The titles sequence seems to have a Shadow theme that hints at the powers of the main Characters. Kelly has Radio Signal style lines radiating from her head and one point eyes show up in the shadow. Simon's Shadow disappears on several occasions. Curtis' shadow runs backwards at one point, and at another looks like a sundial shadow going in reverse by being at different angles to the rest of the group. Alisha, or her shadow, seems to have lines radiating towards it like she is drawing people towards her. Nathan is followed by the shadow of a wolf, which may hint at a shape-shifting power. The bulk of the title sequence is solely in Shadow/Cutout style apart from some real footage of the main characters in the section where their powers are hinted at.

    But after this week's ep I think he might have...
    Probability manipulation...he did say he was close to death and lucky to be alive...
