Watched it last night with the wife. A very interesting show. Reminds me of "LOST" in that there are small clues in the series to connect everyone together.

Summary: Apparently, there are certain people among us who are the next "step up" in evolution. They possess special powers. A group of them discover their powers recently and they are slowly being drawn together by "fate" or "destiny" or secret forces.

An evloutinary scientist is being hunted and trying to uncover the mystery of these powers.

One can read minds
One has incredible regenerative powers (minimal feeling of pain)
One or Two can fly
One can teleport/stop time
One has some kind of EDIT (alter-ego --- this one was freaky)
One has glimpses of the future (and draws it)

I think there may be more. That is all I can remember.

After the show, my wife turns to me, smiles and says, "I would like to be elasti-girl, that way you could bend me anyway you want and it wouldn't hurt."

I told her that I would like to be able to control GRAVITY. Think about it. You could fly, be super-strong, create forcefields around you, crush anyone who got in your way, lift buildings, etc......

Over all, a very good show.

Invisibility, probably.

It's a tough one. Flight would be great. Super strength might be nice. Indestructability could have its merits... but I think I'd choose the ability to turn invisible at will.

Theme music that just plays all around me when I'm doing stuff. It would match the moment -- kicking ass? Loud and powerful. Hitting it? Barry White.

Think about it -- what would Darth Vader be without his theme music? Or Shaft? Nuthin, that's what.

From the dawn of time we came; moving silently down through the centuries, living many secret lives, struggling to reach the time of the Gathering; when the few who remain will battle to the last. No one has ever known we were among you... until now.... er um oh,,,sorry never mind, forget I said that.

I think most of you'all would settle for being "sponge-worthy".

Mind reading maybe....could be boring though.

Control energy in its various forms. Use it to transform light directly into lightning, heat into gravity, ect...

The possibilities would be endless.

I think we all dreamt we could have invisibility powers when we were in high school.

Seriously though, today ... i'd go with being able to see the future.
Link Posted: 9/26/2006 6:00:51 AM EST
Thats a tough one. INvisibility would be uber cool, but really not too practical unless your waanting to go to a life of crime. If your content being a criminal, ,you'd definitely be the best.

Flight would be cool, but you'd stand out like a sore thumb. Still cool.

I'd probably go with something along the lines of teleportation/time control or ability to manipulate metals much like Magneto has. You can do everything with teleportation/time control that you could do with flight, and do it faster. So flight becomes worthless in light of teleportation.

TOugh choice though really.

Just so you could sneak into the girls shower room, pervert.

Teleportation. Definitely. I would dress as a ninja, teleport into important board room meetings, fart, and teleport out. I'm serious.

Flip side is "Going out for a beer after work" equates to siitting on the beach in Hawaiii for an hour sipping a pina colada, and still making it back home in time for supper.

Problem is only three of the powers could be considered evolution type. I thought about it for a while, and for seeing the future, quick regeneration, and (although not seen last night,) mind reading are the only ones you can look at as a logical step forward in evolution. The others, flying, mirror woman, and time control/teleporting,(though as he explains it is is all one power,) are not evolution, rather magic.
Birds are evolved to fly. They didn't have wings. Time space warping, would mean that we already had some time space control now, and he could fine tune the control. Don't know where mirror woman comes in at all.
I did like the show, just a nit pick on the reason these people have powers.

The the future telling must suck because you have to be high to see anything, and there is no control over what you see. Why is it always bad?

Also, there seems to be no consiquenses(sp) of using the powers.
Lets start with regen girl. Even if it were possible, when you heal, it takes up energy. Yet she seems to be able to do it all day long. No extra food, not tired, doesn't need to sleep.
Stopping time or teleporting should be hard, but all he does is look like he needs to take a crap. No blood spurting from his nose.
Just another nit pick. The only one hurt by using his power is the future seeing guy.
Again, if it were an ability, it all costs us to use them. But not these people.

I think mind reading would be pretty dang cool.

Then MAYBE I'd be able to understand women. Well, not really understand them, just understand what their thoughts are. I still don't think I'd be able to make sense of it, though!

Link Posted: 9/26/2006 8:46:16 AM EST
If you're talking about the powers on the show...
Flight.... defnitely flight. It's tough because chronokinesis/teleportation would be sweet and invulneability is also pretty awesome.... but still flight.
