Storyline

Nathan, Kelly, Simon, Alisha and Curtis were expecting their community service to be boring. However after a freak thunderstorm they discover that it is anything but dull. Bestowed with strange powers, the five very different teens realize they have a lot more to worry about than just picking up litter, especially as they discover that they are not the only ones who have been given strange powers. Secrets will be revealed, feelings brought to the surface and relationships formed and broken. But hey, its only 12 weeks of community service; what's the worst that could happen? Written by LadyN1

31 July 2010 | by (St Tropez) – See all my reviews

Credit is due...where credit is due In two simple words.....Pure brilliance I like to think I have a good judge of creative intelligence masked into current media. Some of you may think me a tool but for me, I know what I like. After having watched just two episodes I can say without any hindrance that this will, and is, an example of pure brilliance.

The setting, the music, the vibe, the acting..all of a first class standard which, if something I made, would make me proud, more than satisfied and make me wanting to make more of this type of entertainment.

Anyone interested in something clever and alternative would appreciate this greatly and I urge you to watch it. I cannot say any more...

Enjoy
