Zenon Car is a trouble-prone 13-year-old girl who, in the year 2049 AD, lives on a space station with the rest of her family. When she runs afoul of Parker Windom, the owner of the station, Zenon is determined to be "incorrigible", and as punishment is exiled to the worst place imaginable: The planet earth. After several painful weeks of adjustment to her new surroundings, Zenon enlists the aid of her earthbound pals to return to her "real" home with evidence that the "respectable" Mr. Windom is up to no good.

Ceedus Lapeedus! Why isn't this on a network everybody can get!
16 February 1999 | by (Los Angeles, Ca.) – See all my reviews

Finally, an energetic and exciting show that we can watch as a family and enjoy without worrying about off-color humor or jokes with sexual overtones. And Kirsten Storms is fantastic! Bubbly and full of energy, she brings to the screen the kind of charisma that is a positive motivator for other kids. The only shame is that it's not on a network more people have because it's an uplifting movie that would make a sensational series.
