I remember on this how that Matthew Star's powers were helped in part by the fact that he had two hearts and apparently his heart and people from his planet's hearts beat like 16 times per minute. I think about this a lot considering that whomever wrote that had a pretty good idea that if this were actually true in real life then the physical and even mental strength of human beings would be considerably stronger than they are now and in a sense could possibly create some of the almost telepathic like powers that were so sci-fi on the show. It seems like a lot the one season shows are gaining popularity again via discussions like this on the internet. It would be nice to see the companies that own them to begin putting them out on DVD. They put the really old ones out ( they even color them ), why not these type of shows?
