Storyline

A teenage girl, just starting junior high and living in a modern corporate community is accidentally contaminated by a secret chemical product of The Plant. She acquires mysterious abilities that allow her to change her shape, move objects with her mind, and zap people and objects with small electrical charges. The owners of The Plant continually seek to find out which of the local kids has been contaminated so they can experiment on her, but their employees are less than competent and the search is comedic and futile.

One of the Best of Nickelodeon programming
23 December 2003 | by (Buffalo, NY) – See all my reviews

I'm just one of the many older Nickelodeon fans who can go on and on about how cool the network used to be. This was before they had junk like Rocket Power, Romeo, and Slime Time Live. This was back when they had REAL comedies, REAL game shows, and REAL quality programming. Alex Mack was one of those shows.

Alex Mack was [what could be considered a teenage drama] about a girl who kept a secret from most of everyone about a chemical accident she was involved in. Only her best friend and older sister knew that she could zap things, use telekinesis, and hide by morphing into a puddle. In practically every episode, there was some evil scientist (or anybody related) who was trying to find "that kid that was involved in the chemical accident". I recall several two-parters where the discovery of the secret came really close. Most of the stories were very exciting.

This truly was among Nick's most popular programs during its run. I remember one episode of All That where Larisa Oleynik guest-starred in a crossover segment, which was pretty funny. Also, Alex Mack was once the flagship for Nickelodeon's Snick line-up on Saturday nights.

It's a shame Nickelodeon doesn't make quality programs like this anymore. Alex Mack was a very interesting program that showed that people can still live their lives, even with the secrets they might have. Maybe someday, Nick can create a spin-off channel that houses their classic programming. I mean, Nick-at-Nite did it with TV Land.
