Did You Know?


There has been much speculation as to what the main antagonist, Danielle Atron's, name means since the series came out. The word 'tron' is defined as a device for the manipulation of subatomic particles, so most viewers believe that this was Paul Lipman's intention, to give the character a scientific name for her role as the owner of a chemical factory. It is still not officially confirmed what the name means. See more »

Puberty memories.
25 July 2009 | by (Noctropolis) – See all my reviews

Oh I remember watching this show at 4:00 p.m. during my junior high days. It was not a pleasant experience because I remember watching it when I made my homework.

Still, the show caught my attention when Alex displayed her special powers and dealt with the typical junior high problems.

But the show wasn't all about adventures and special powers; it was more of an educational effort for a younger audience in order to get more interested in school and biology overall.

The lead actress (can't remember her name and I'm too lazy to copy and paste from the main details) delivered a fantastic performance. She made the show watchable.

They just don't make shows like this one anymore...
