25 x 25 minute episodes
This ITV show featured three teens with extraordinary powers who banded together to battle diabolical foes and save the world. The show had no connection to the original cult classic 1970s science fiction series and was a reboot in name only.
Adam (Kristian Schmid), Megabyte (Christian Tessier) and Lisa (Kristen Ariza) were the original teens who had reached “the next stage of human evolution” and were able to teleport, use mental telepathy, and sense when one of the others was in danger.
Their adventures unfolded in stories that spanned five episodes each. In one a mad scientist named Dr Culex (Jean Marsh) developed a strain of robotic killer mosquitoes in order to take over the world. In another, an American mobster and an urbane scientist created a rain-making machine with the same purpose.
The team’s young friend Kevin (Adam Pearce) disappeared after the first two stories, and the female members changed as well (Lisa in story one, Ami in stories two, three and four and Jade in number five).
