    The Tomorrow people has had some good writing in the last few episodes. Each show seems to leave the viewers with a new surprise. I really hope it gets renewed for a second season.

    Reign is one of the best TV series ever!!! Please continue to make more episodes and more seasons. It is extremely romantic and original! The characters are fantastic, and the plot is becoming more and more developed. The costumes are exceptional!! Please please keep producing more Reign episodes!!!

    Reign is amazing, I will just explode if it isn’t renewed. Rich in drama and delicate intertwining of plot lines. Keeps you on the edge of your seat the entire episode and you can’t believe it when it’s over.

    I think Reign got potential, but the writers really need to work on character development. The writers need to slow down as well, things are happening to fast

    Have not caught Reign yet, but do watch the others.
    Not surprised they were picked up for full seasons, after all they really do not have anything to fill those spots with.

    I know that the Originals and the Tomorrow People could each use some tweaks to make them better. But they are better then reality fair.

      I like originals but they need a bigger baddie. That’s the problem when your star is the big baddie. Tommorrow People is a snoozefest. It’s been done. Um x-men, heroes, marvel, etc.

    I enjoy all three of these. I like “Reign” by myself, and “The Tomorrow People” and “the Originals” I watch with my teens. It’s good semi-decent programming for teeny-bopper shows.
