Cooking With John
In a hurry? Read the recaplet for a nutshell description!

In my head, I keep trying to fix The Tomorrow People. Let's leave aside my distaste for Cara, because the Cara issue is merely a symptom of the larger problem with the series. And I hate to say this, but I'm afraid the taint is soon going to spread to John. On my first pass, I tried to explain the show's problem with this whole cooking analogy, but, well...

Angel: Let's say it made me wistful for Buffy's cookie dough thing.

John: Speaking of cooking, I made you some French toast.

Stephen: It's delicious, just like our story.

Recapper: Because you're becoming too good to be true. That's the taint spread.

John: You're going to need to explain that.

Recapper: I will, at the appropriate moments. Get to the story.

John: Fine. We open on a black-hooded figure plodding down the corridors of Ultra. I was hoping for the Grim Reaper or Darth Vader. Hoodie TKs a bunch of Ultra drones into walls, until someone manages to taser him. When that someone removes the interloper's hood, we see it's just Julian -- you know, the anarchist, nihilist SUPE criminal who first found Cara. We cut from his face to...
