I love this show. The DVD is a must buy!, 12 March 2004
Author: trees1 from USA

The last time I've seen this show was in the early 1980s on the United Stated children's network Nickleodeon.

I loved this show from the very beginning. My favorite character is Stephen Jameson, played wonderfully by Peter Vaughan-Clark. My next favorite is John, played also wonederfully by Nicholas Young. Third is Mike Bell.

The first four seasons were the best.

It's about a group of kids under the age of 21 who have TP powers: Telepathy, Teleportation (They call it jaunting.), and Telekenesis. And because they have a "Prime Barrier" which prevents them from killing (they can only use a stun gun), their vulnerability against their enemies is great.

The first seaon is with John, Carol, Kenny Stephen, and TIM. It starts when Stephen "breaks out" into a TP. Then the rest of adventures deal with a boy (Peter) who is a time traveler, and another about saving the Earth from distruction.

The second seaon is without Carol and Kenny, but we get introduced to Elizabeth--Stephen's student teacher. In this season, the TP travel to the Roman Empire, and in another try to save the world from future fighters of war. It is this episode we see Stephen fencing. He was amazing. It was great to watch.

The third season introduces us to Tyso the gypsy boy. Here the TP deal with the goventment, another planet, and an evil robot out to distroy the TP. In this episode, this shape changer disguides himself as Stephen--and others.

Also in season 3 is a very funny episode called "A Man for Emily" with Peter Davidson--Dr. Who. A must see.

The fourth Season is the first one with Michael Bell. A boy with the ability to open locks. But it gets in in trouble with the wrong people.

It is in the fourth season the Executive Producers (unintelligently) decide this is to be the last seaon for Peter Vaughan-Clark (Stephen). For me the show went down hill from there. I liked the show. Andrew in the last and eigth season was adorable, but it lacked that extra something once the John and Stephen friendship was removed from the scene.

Season 1 - 3 (and the 1st episode of 4) are on DVD in the UK.

If you are an American--like me--buy the Region 0. It will play on a multiple region player--or on a PC. Go out and buy these DVD, and remember with fondness the show.

PS: When you watch put on the "audio commentaries." They are with Nicholas Young and Peter Vaughen-Clark ("John" and "Steven") and other past TP actors commenting on the show and other things. It is hysterically funny. I loved it and watch it all the time.
