Storyline

The series revolves around Evie Ethel Garland, who is the daughter of Troy and Donna Garland. However, Troy is an alien from the planet Antereus. As a benefit of her half-alien parentage, Evie develops three powers as the series progresses. She can pause and un-pause time, "gleep" objects into existence, and can transport herself from one place to another. Troy is living on Antereus and is never seen, but Evie talks to him via a crystal cube. Evie is thirteen at the beginning of the series and lives with her mother in Marlowe, California. Visitors to the Garland home include Donna's brother Beano Froelich; the mayor Kyle Applegate, a former actor; Lindsey Selkirk, Evie's best friend; Chris Fuller, Evie's boyfriend; and Buzz, who tends to take things literally. Episodes usually revolve around Evie getting herself out of a situation that she has caused. Written by John T. Ernest

Another one of my all time favorite eighties sitcoms
12 November 2004 | by (Kansas City, Kansas) – See all my reviews

I watched this show from the time it aired in syndication. Maureen Flannigan delivered a terrific performance as the popular Evie Garland. I was so hooked to this show that I began to act just like her, and I don't mean girlie like, I mean I began putting my two index fingers to- gether trying to stop time like her. I began to do it in school so much that I got in trouble by teacher and parents and I was forbidden from watching the show for a week. Eventually, I learned my lesson and I was allowed to watch it again and even though I had been punished once for doing it I would still do it in private when I was alone. I would even play the characters on the show with friends.
