Similar to NBC's long-gone superhero series "Heroes" (except not terrible), this British import imagines troubled teens who gain powers after an electrical storm. Instead of ponderous myth-building, however, this show hinges on its strong characters, including the goofy Robert Sheehan and "Game of Thrones" torture enthusiast Iwan Rheon. Plus the show's theme music looks back on underrated dance-punk curios the Rapture. It's a win-win.
